Over Chobe Game Lodge
In het noordoosten van Chobe National Park, aan de machtige Chobe-rivier, 20 kilometer stroomopwaarts van de samenvloeiing van de Chobe- en de Zambezi-rivier ligt de Chobe Game Lodge. Het is een luxe lodge in Moorse bouwstijl met een rustige en ruimtelijke uitstraling door haar elegante hoge bogen en glimmende tegelvloeren. Vanuit de lodge kunt u vooral in het droge seizoen van heel dichtbij wilde dieren bij de rivier zien. De comfortabele kamers zijn gedecoreerd met origineel Afrikaans houtsnijwerk en Afrikaanse schilderijen. Er is een fitnessruimte en een beautysalon. Vanuit de lodge maakt u safari's over de rivier of door het schitterende wildpark per open landrover. Tijdens uw verblijf zijn alle maaltijden, lokale drankjes en twee safari-activiteiten per etmaal inbegrepen.

Chobe National Park is een beschermd natuurgebied van ruim 10.000 km2, op slechts twee uur rijden van de grens met Zimbabwe en Zambia, waardoor u het gemakkelijk kunt combineren met een bezoek aan de Victoria Watervallen. In Chobe leven grote kuddes olifanten, ook tal van antilopensoorten zoals de kudu, eland en tsessebe. De rode lechwe en de zeer zeldzame puku komen alleen in Botswana voor. Ook vogelaars komen hier volop aan hun trekken, met maar liefst zo’n 440 soorten. De Chobe-rivier is de natuurlijke grens met Namibië; vooral in het droge seizoen ziet u hier veel wilde dieren.
Chobe Game Lodge is THE only lodge located inside of the National Park, on the River Bank. The hospitality shown by ALL the staff was awesome. Rooms were great, very well kept and facing the river banks where Elephants come everyday to bathe. In particular, a special mention goes to a few of the staff: Leene and Bee who made the experience very personal and they were very attentive to our needs. Leene also arranged for a very special last night dinner for us at a secluded area on the lodge that was a very sweet surprise complimented by amazing food prepared by the chef (Jon). We wouldn't have had such a recommendable experience if it wasn't for our personal guide for the 4 days that we were there (Anastacia). She was very knowledgeable and great to hangout with all day, everyday and exceeded out expectations!
"Excellent Chobe experience "
The lodge is located on the banks of the Chobe River with views of Namibia across the river. The rooms are well appointed with views of the river. The boat safari up and downstream provided elephant viewing and many bird sightings. The public spaces in the lodge are comfortable and the food is good. Staff are well trained and attentive. Most elegant of the four lodges visited this trip
"Terrible Safari Experience"
Our stay at Chobe Game Lodge (CGL) was disappointing. We provided personal feedback to the manager on duty, Graham, prior to leaving as well as an email detailing out the issues to the Desert & Delta booking agent, Sue. At the time of this review, it has been a week and we have yet to receive any of the promised acknowledgement or remediation from the â€œGMâ€ of the lodge. Customer service is clearly not a priority. There were many issues in our short overnight stay, but I will use this review to focus on the main ones that we communicated to the lodge. They revolve around safety, CGLâ€™s fleet of vehicles and inter-communications (the below points are taken directly from the email we sent to CGL): 1. Afternoon game drive a. While viewing a herd of elephants a few feet away, the guide stopped the car. Upon completion of the stop, the car would not start back up. The radio was also down rendering us unable to call for help. The guide did not know how to address the situation. Luckily a vehicle from another lodge came by soon and their guide was eventually able to restart the car. 2. Morning game drive a. The 4 x 4 was an electric vehicle. Its battery charge suddenly fell from 90% to 20% while driving. The radios did not have service to call for help (from a main road, within the park only about 40 minutes from the lodge). The guide advised us that the radios only work short distances from each other, and once they are out of range they cannot communicate (?!). After waiting a bit, we moved to another location where we were able to contact the lodge. Another vehicle arrived and we were transferred. In only an hour, we were the second group that required â€œrescuingâ€ due to battery issues. b. Shortly thereafter, while tracking nearby lions, the replacement car hit a large tree branch and we got a flat tire. The guide had some knowledge on how to replace it, but would not have been able to on her own. Out of four guests, one older man knew how to do it and spent an hour doing heavy labor, lifting the entire vehicle (multiple times as the car jack kept slipping causing the car to dangerously tilt and drop), and then replacing the tire. During this time, not a single car passed us and we requested the guide to call the lodge for assistance, or to send another vehicle, but she ignored our multiple requests. She did not even attempt to assuage our discomfort or our wasted time. The way in which the flat tire was handled shocked us. The very first action that should have been taken is to contact the lodge and provide coordinates, even if you plan to handle the situation yourself. This is especially true if the situation is not being rectified and guests are expressing discomfort and concern. My mom has issues with her feet and back and standing for that long in the sun was painful. The guides at CGL do not carry rifles and we were left standing outside a vehicle for an hour while the responsibility of replacing the tire on a 4 x 4 vehicle was placed in the hands of a guest. Upon return, the hard work of the guest was not even acknowledged. I want to make it clear that we do not blame the guide on all fronts, as Chobe Game Lodge provides the low quality vehicles, training and expectations to the guide. For example, there was a general lack in ability to track or spot animals, a large part coming from the passengers (including guests pointing out animals, fresh tracks or a lionâ€™s roar in the distance to the guide). Every game drive is unique, and I have been on several where very little game is spotted, however it is up to the guide to still create a dynamic experience. She was very nice, but when going on a safari, we are not paying to have a nice driver, we are paying for an experience. For a higher end lodge and price point, the quality of the experience at Chobe Game Lodge was well below par on the safari front. I was very excited to visit Chobe, particularly CGL for their mission to empower women as rangers, and was severely letdown. Other notes: The rooms were clean and comfortable. There was unfortunately no river view from the side we were on. The bathrooms were huge and newly renovated. Food was OK. They did not take into consideration our pre-arrival form that specified vegetarians, but they were accommodating and took special requests for dinner. The chef made some delicious Indian dishes. Staff was nice but impersonal in comparison to most lodges where they go out of their way to greet you or know your name. Our favorite part of the stay was the singing/dancing troupe during lunch. They were very talented and entertaining. Bottom line: When there are so many great lodge choices out there, I would not recommend risking a stay at Chobe Game Lodge.
"Great Safari lodge"
This was brilliant we went on the river safari and saw so much it was amazing and Mike the guide was very informative well worth doing. We also did 2 land safaris which were fantastic we saw lots of game, but particularly elephants, it was so good. The lodge was very comfortable and has mosquito nets but best to cover yourself with repellent we didn't have a problem. The food was very good and I would recommend this lodge, for service and very helpful staff.
"Fabulous lodge in Chobe National Park"
I was truly amazed by this lodge in Chobe National Park. Located next to the Chobe River, it has a typical architecture and atmosphere. The staff is very courteous, the rooms are very comfortable, and the food is delicious. The morning and evening game rides are fabulous, but the highlight was the boat ride in the Chobe River, where you can see large groups of elephants swimming from the Botswana shore to the Namibian shore and back. Really awesome.
