The Chobe Game Lodge is the only Safari Lodge actually situated in the Chobe National Park. The lodge offers every luxury and comfort for your sojourn in the wilds. The architecture is Moorish and graceful – high arches, barrel-vault ceilings and tiled floors create an atmosphere of spaciousness and tranquility. All 46 rooms are tastefully furnished; each room with hand crafted, Rhodesian teak furniture and walls decorated with original African carvings and paintings. “Love canopies” in hand-painted fabric have also been erected above all the ‘extra-long’ beds. All rooms have their own private terrace/balcony, are fully air-conditioned, have en-suite bathrooms and complimentary stocked mini-bars. Overhead punkah-punkah fans complete the nostalgic ambiance of an Africa of yesteryear. There are four private suites each with individual swimming pools and outside garden patio. All rooms overlook the Chobe River and adjacent Caprivi floodplain.
Facilities within the lodge include a well-stocked curio shop and wildlife reference library. The stylish Tshwene bar which, complete with full-sized Victorian pool table, overlooks the floodplains, and the boma (outdoor eating area enclosed by reed walls) under large mahogany trees on the banks of the Chobe River . Like the rooms, the boma has been furnished in teak and leather.
Safari activities at Chobe are diverse and exciting and tailored to suit individual requirements. Game drives are conducted in open fourwheel-drive vehicles, normally early morning and late afternoon and under the leadership of qualified guides. The Chobe floodplain is renown for its concentration of buffalo and elephant and the late afternoon in particular, provides spectacular viewing. Game viewing and fishing by small boats is also a special Chobe experience. Additionally, there are also the sunrise and sunset cruises aboard the ‘Mosi o’Tunya’ -a custom built luxury safari boat, enabling you to view wildlife that congregate at the waters edge at very close range but in all safety, and which provide spectacular wildlife viewing and vistas of an African sunset.
For the true lover of unspoilt Africa, these safaris will capture the magnificence and very real essence of Botswana ‘s natural landscape and wildlife heritage.
