We had a wonderful time at the Chobe Lodge. The staff were very friendly and went above in customer service. Loved the location and the game drives on both the river and in the park itself. Would recommend this lodge.

I have seen several properties in the Chobe area, but this was by far my favorite. Their location is perfect with game drives directly into the park and river cruises right from the riverbank (unique in the area!). This means you can have a morning (5am) and afternoon game drive (3pm) or boat safaris (10am or 3pm). In between there... More
