This is a really great place for the mid-range travellers. Service is excellent, staff are friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful. Some may say the rooms are small but I love the showers and overall I would highly recommend this hotel to visitors of Kasane.

All in order to make your stay as pleasant as possible. It isvery rare that you come along a lodge where there is such a...

Overall, the stay was great. The service was great. The boat cruises were a lot of fun. The lodging was beautiful. The staff was incredibly helpful. The dinners were delicious. Would recommend! They also have 2 cute cats roaming the property, friendly dogs, and a hippo ("Margaret") comes and dines on the grass just about every evening near the property...

This is one of the places we loved the most during our three weeks in Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. It is rather small with it's 7 (or 8) rooms, some double, some quadruple. Each room has either a nice porch or a balcony. The lot has direct access to the river, so that the river excursions start directly from the...

We were very sad to leave.... The staff and owners were all so warm and accommodating that it felt like we were part of a family. The location was incredibly relaxing on the banks of the Chobe River, facilities were great, the food was fantastic, and the options of game drives by vehicle or boat was an added bonus (seeing...

After lodging in dozens different locations in two journeys, in Namibia and Botswana, this beautiful lodge was the only one to give us the feeling to be at home.

As a wheelchair user, African can be a bit of a problem, but not at The Garden Lodge. Although not specifically designed to accommodate people with disabilities, within minutes of arriving ramps were appearing, made in their workshop from thick ply. The next morning Grab-rails had been made for the shower and bathroom (and fitted over breakfast !). The Management...

a lovely venue on the Chobe river. great breakfasts & very friendly & helpful staff, management & owners. lovely view from most rooms (rooms without a view over the river are cheaper). little bit pricey for the budget minded traveler otherwise good value for money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We built The Garden Lodge with the specific intention of offering personal service to a small number of guests. There are many fine lodges in the area, however most have over 100 beds, we have 22. The lodge has eight bedrooms (4 standard double/twin bed rooms, 3 family rooms with 4 beds each and 1 smaller double/twin room. ). All rooms with own bathrooms and private verandahs overlooking the Chobe River.We are truly a garden lodge. The combination of unlimited water and constant sunshine allows hibiscus, frangipani, bougainvillea, banana and paw paw to grow in profusion. Guests love the garden and the prolific birds attracted to the flowers and fruits. ... more   less
