Chobe Game Lodge is the only permanent accommodation in Botswana’s magnificent Chobe National Park. The property’s elegant architecture is informed by Moorish design, its high arches and barrel-vault ceilings create a sense of simple grandeur. All 47, air-conditioned rooms overlook the Chobe River, which supports the world’s densest population of Kalahari elephants along with large herds of buffalo and zebra.

Spend your days seeking out the Big 5, exploring the land by vehicle and the river by boat - either option promises you exciting wildlife encounters. You may even spot the rare aquatic red lechwe, or the indigenous Chobe bushbuck. The abundant game supports an equally healthy population of predators, including large resident populations of lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah.

Between morning and afternoon game viewing activities, the poolside terrace is a great spot to unwind. Celebrate the sunset with a river cruise or cocktails in the lounge. After dinner, enjoy a game of billiards in the cigar bar, or a night cap from the complimentary mini-bar, sipped on your private balcony overlooking the moonlit river.

Game viewing is most rewarding in the early morning and late afternoon. In between exploring the land and river, the poolside terrace, with its beautiful views, offers the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Retreat from the heat for a quiet read in the well-stocked reference library, or pamper yourself with beauty treatments at the in-house spa.

Traveller Reviews

  • Absolutely gorgeous. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Pam Humphreys, September 2015
  • Chobe Game Lodge met us at the airport and 30 minutes later we were at the beautiful lodge. Great rooms, super clean, great service, food, etc. Lots of animals, saw 4 of the Big 5 (no rhino). Lots and lots of elephants, lions, buffaloes, and all sorts of plains game. I think a 3 night stay is perfect to see all the sights and animals.

    David Hackney, August 2015
  • Chobe was good! The environment was different. We saw large herds of Cape Buffalo and Elephants.

    Paul Turcotte, July 2015
  • Chobe Safari exceeded our expectations.

    Gabriel Chan, July 2015
  • Chobe Game Lodge was a different experience - with boat trips on the river, wonderful animals and birds, and huge numbers of elephants and buffalo coming down to the river. Gobe was an excellent and knowledgeable host, always ready to adapt the drive according to the interests of the group.

    Lee Bond, June 2015
  • The Chobe Game Lodge was such a luxurious place - we felt very pampered!

    Susie Jennings, June 2015
  • Chobe Game Lodge has been terrific. They upgraded us to a suite with our own pool. I was in heaven ! We actually didn't know it was an upgrade until I asked at checkout. The staff and food also amazing. Game drives and river cruises were different than Thornybush and so the experience made the overall trip fuller and complete.

    Jamie Greene, October 2014
  • It was a wonderful trip and truly an experience of a lifetime. Everyone had an outstanding time. As to arrangements, everything went incredibly smooth and all of the accommodations were excellent. I have no complaints on any part of the trip. All of the staff, guides, and trackers at the camps were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.

  • The Chobe Game Lodge was beautiful, and even though it's a tough competition, I think out of the whole trip they had the best staff. Everyone there was AWESOME. You could tell they genuinely cared about you, always making sure you drank enough water, etc. We had the same boat guide (Gobe), game guide (Irene), and server (Collen) throughout our stay at the lodge which was great because we really got to bond with them. We even threw Gobe a baby shower on our last river tour, she's expecting twins in October!!! We exchanged emails and can't wait to see pictures once she gives birth. Everyone there just feels like family. Irene was great on the drives, we would get so excited to see a specific animal and she would do her best to make sure we got to see it. In the end we were able to see young lions, lionesses, a male lion, leopards, kudu, impala, giraffes, elephants, warthogs, hippos, crocodiles, buffalo, baboons, honey badgers, jackals, mongoose, zebras (at Livingstone), countless birds, etc. The only downside to Chobe was the spotty wifi, but it's nice to take a break from social media sometimes and just enjoy nature and God's creations.

    David Hackney, July 2014
  • Chobe was also amazing - the people and the animals were great - not sure which were better!! We loved our driver Irene and our boat driver, Gobe. We had fun with Gobe who is pregnant with twins, so we gave her a baby shower on the river while we saw elephants and hippos! Colleen also took care of our meals and treated us royally. I hesitate to say how good it was because everyone will want to go and it would be so crowded.

Our favorite place was Chobe Game Lodge 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 with a breakfast buffet and cooked to order meals as well. Lunch was served on the boardwalk so we could watch the elephants along the riverside, and dinner was by candle light with about seven choices of entrees to choose from. 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.
