Chobe Game Lodge, Botswana
The town of Kasane, or Chobe as it is more commonly known, is the gateway to the Okavango Delta and home to numerous accommodation options, but Zafaris' top recommendation is Chobe Game Lodge.
Chobe Game Lodge is one of the only permanent game lodges situated inside the Chobe National Park. The little town of Kasane is home to some really large establishments right on the Chobe River and in peak season it can get crazy busy with a lot of boat and vehicle activity.
We always recommend places where you can stay a bit away from the chaos so you can fully immerse yourself in the destination. For this reason, we recommend staying at Chobe Game Lodge as it is the perfect location for a number of reasons.
Despite its size, the lodge has a perfect layout with lots of lounge areas, decks, dining areas, and bars to give you more space to escape crowds if you prefer a little quiet time.
Since Chobe Game Lodge is the only lodge in the reserve at one point or another, whether it be from your morning activity or your evening game drive, guests will have the reserve all to themselves and enjoy the peace and quiet of this beautiful location. Also.....you get to avoid any potential queues when entering the National Park.
The lodge is located just a short drive from Kasane airport and you get to explore the reserve one last time on the day of departure.
Botswana Tourism Board has given full eco-grading to the Lodge: electric vehicles and solar-powered vessels offer silent safaris on the Chobe River.
Food, glorious food. There are some of the most unique dining locations next to the river. With so many different options, you are certain not to go hungry. All dietary requirements are catered for.
