Chobe Safari Lodge is set adjacent to the prolific wildlife sanctuary of Botswana’s Chobe National Park, known for having the largest concentration of elephants in Africa. The lodge’s location also makes it an excellent gateway to Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia, and the perfect place from which to visit the mighty Victoria Falls.

Perched beside the deep Chobe River, the lodge offers a unique opportunity to experience the wilderness by land and water. Game drives are taken on 9-seater open safari vehicles in the mornings and in the evenings. You can also opt for half-day or full-day safaris as well as private expeditions on request. As the sun sets, there is a flurry of dusk activity on the river among hippos, elephants and water birds that can be observed on an early evening boat cruise. Private boat hire is also available. The lush waterways and abundant wildlife of the Okavango Delta are a short distance away from the lodge and await your discovery on an exciting day trip.

Traveller Reviews

  • Chobe Safari Lodge was obviously different from Moremi but its riverside position, facilities and quality of accommodation was good. The variety of food for both dinner and breakfast was very good. The only issue we had was a long wait for our room to be ready on arrival. The afternoon river cruise was stunning both for the variety and number of animals/reptiles etc and for the vista in which we viewed them all. The morning game drive was only ok but sometimes a safari is just pot luck!

  • Chobe Safari Lodge - again fantastic food. Lovely area overlooking the river to sit and relax and have a few beers. The room was really comfortable too. We went on a jeep safari and the sunset cruise. I would thoroughly recommend the sunset cruise, we saw many more animals than on jeep safari and close up too.

  • We had a great time on our African Safari adventure. It was a trip of a lifetime for me. The safari lodges (both Elephant Valley Lodge & Chapungu Lodge) were much more than I expected. The staff was very friendly and welcoming at both lodges. The guides/trackers were knowledgeable and made the experience of being in the bush enjoyable. I liked the Botswana lodge by Chobe National Park best. The guide was fun and knowledgeable and made the safari just what I expected. It had more of the authentic feel, but still with the comforts of a luxury lodge.

  • Chobe Safari Lodge was so beautiful. Right on the River. Our room had a river view. It had mosquito netting which we used. It was trying to figure out how to envelope yourself. All the tours were fab. Saw lions within 10 minutes of the safari - a pride and them a male courting a female who did not seem interested.

  • Our favorite place was Chobe as the lodge there is just gorgeous! Everything was perfect. The game drives were full of animal sightings with knowledgeable guides to tell us all about them. The food was fantastic. The staff was very friendly and the room was very nice. I can’t say enough good things about this place and will definitely recommend it to my friends.

  • Chobe Safari Lodge was a very pleasant place to stay. The room was very nice and buffet food was good. The highlight of our stay in Chobe was the actual safari tours. We were fortunate to see a great deal, particularly in the afternoon outings.

    Paul Guzzan, April 2012
  • In fact, the trip was amazing. I never thought we would see so much game on our drives - especially in Chobe and Savute. The camps/lodges were also wonderful - especially the Chobe Game Lodge and Savute Safari Lodge. The food was superb throughout our trip. I'm sure I gained weight. Guest services were outstanding, especially at the Chobe Game Lodge and Savute Safari Lodge - I can't express into words how wonderful these two lodges were. Superb!

  • The chobe Safari Lodge was excellent we had a balcony overlooking the Chobe River. We saw a lot of Elephants, Hippos, crocodiles and birds both during the River Cruise and the speed boat cruise. The Speed boat is better since we could get closer to the animals. We took 2 game drives inside the Chobe national park, on the Morning drive (6AM) we encounted Spottle Hyennas and they said we were lucky to see a Lioness with her 2 cubs (they were so close to us), we also saw elephants, warhogs, impalas, giraffes, kudu, and etc. Oh, by the way, an Indian restaurant opened 3 months ago and it was a blessing for us. The buffet dinner at the lodge had little selection for our taste buds. If you get Indian clients tell them there is a VERY GOOD INDIAN RESTAURANT close to Chobe Safari Lodge.

  • The Chobe Safari Lodge was terrific.

    Lorri Paulucci, August 2011
  • Chobe Safari Lodge was a perfect accommodation for us, especially traveling with in-laws who had never been on safari - it was comfortable yet rustic enough to feel "the experience" of the river.
