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.
"A Great Introduction to Safaris!"
What a great introduction to safaris! I was there with a Road Scholar Tour. The lodge is gorgeous, and the rooms are elegant. I like that all the guides are women. Our guide Anna was very well informed, both on the boat (which is solar powered!) and the safari vehicles, which are electric, therefore not very noisy as well as being more ecological. She also helped with translating when we met a tribal chief, (though he did speak English pretty well.) Because this lodge is inside the National Park, we had a little more time to enjoy the wildlife before 7, when the park closes. The service was excellent. One member of our party didn't feel well and stayed back from some game drives, and the staff was very helpful to him. I also liked the laundry service, which was included. The food was great, both the menu items (with an orchestrated presentation) and the buffets. One member of our party had a birthday and was surprised with a cake and great singing. Beer and wine was complimentary. The grounds are beautiful with a boardwalk (made of recycled water bottles!) overlooking the River. I had anticipated a more rustic safari and this lodge was a pleasant surprise. I hated to leave.
"Beautiful setting with stunning service"
Superb service would return in a heart beat. The room was beautifully funished and I loved the location. Chobe is remote but has just the right amount of luxury not to spoil a true African experience. The luggage was taken to and from our room on arrival and departure without us having to request this. I loved my stay here and wish I could have stayed longer. The veranda with its furnishings overlooking the river, the surrounding gardens and the boardwalk along the Chobe river is gorgeous and incredibly peaceful. We saw plenty of animals on our game drives and the river cruises ended with spectacular sunsets. Make this a must go to lodge when you visit Africa you will not be disappointed.
"The place to be"
We spent 3 nights in this fantastic Lodge.It was a great time with a lot of surprising moments. Startet with our room - Elizabeth Taylor und Richard Burton's honeymoon suite. Room with an own pool - amazing. Apart of this Chobe Game Lodge offers much more than this. Situated fantastic at the river we could join the game drives by car and by boat. The guides are very good, friendly with a good knowledge of animals, plants and nature over all. The food was very delicious and we had the opportunity to eat traditional food at the Boma. Chobe Game Lodge isn't only a Place tho remember it is also a place to return.
"Given the Suite and cost we had higher expectations."
Being a resident of Botswana, we secured a good price however the suite was still excessively expensive. We arrived the day they reopened after refurbishments and appeared a little disorganised (although didn't help last minute change to arrival dates). The Suite was amazing with our own pool and 2 bedroom apartment and it was perfect. Fully stocked bar that was included and the grounds were great. But it was little things that due to price felt like big but simple service expectations. Firstly we had to carry all our own bags from the car and back again when we left. Secondly we had lunch and drinks by the pool and the glasses were not cleared until they arrived to set the table for dinner. (We had a trainee who wasn't even going to set the table until I requested it) The food was really nice and had a great choice of 3 course lunch and dinner. In saying that, the history and grounds are amazing with Liz Taylor and Richard Burton being married here. I can see why, the main part of the hotel is gorgeous. Pics don't do it justice.
"Beautiful River Location"
On our drive through the park in to the lodge we saw a number of animals before we arrived. We chose Chobe Game Lodge because we wanted a safari that was on a river. Completely different from safaris in the middle of the bush because animals either reside in the river or come to it daily. Another important factor is that this is the only lodge inside Chobe National park so you are first in and last out to see the animals. The lodge itself is very stunning, more like a resort with its grandeur than small lodges or tented camps. Hard to believe that such a facility exists so remote and far from the town. They have such beautiful common areas, lounges and outdoor seating. You just want to spend all day there admiring the beauty of the grounds and the river. Unfortunately you donâ€™t have that luxury because you are so busy with the routine of early morning game drive, late morning boat drive and late afternoon game drive. Personally we prefer as much game action as we can get so doing 3 per day was awesome. Some people may find it too much and need more down time. Definitely a great place to lounge and relax if you wanted to. They had awesome muffins in the morning prior to the game drives but we wished they had a morning coffee/tea break with snacks during the drive as other game lodges usually have. The buffet breakfasts upon return had everything imaginable. We also really enjoyed the order from the menu a la carte lunch which had lots of choices and tasted great every meal. Have to mention the incredible Boma dinner that they held outside one night. It was a traditional braai or BBQ with traditional local meats and dishes. They also had local live music. A true African experience. One thing that you must try is their made onsite local breads. They have an outdoor wood fired oven. The best bread I have had in my life. Our guide Slodge was keen at finding animals and made sure we saw lots of them. The animals here were always in large groups. It became routine for us to see animals by themselves or just sitting there but we were most impressed by the actions of the group. We could sit there all day and watch a herd of elephants in the river playing, wrestling and spraying water. It was unreal how close elephants would come up to the land cruisers, totally safe but definitely nerve racking if not used to it. Very impressive to also see massive herds of cape buffalo blocking your path and drinking in the river. At times we were surrounded by hundreds of them. The different types and quantity of birds here was awesome. Giraffe, baboons, elephants and buffalo were everywhere we went every day. If you love elephants then this is the place for you. The best part of course were the lions. In an area where elephants and buffalo dominate we saw lions both days. First I spotted a large solo male walking who promptly went under a bush to shelter from the hot sun. Nobody believed I spotted him but sure enough when we repositioned to a new location there he was laying there. Another day we were driving along when Slodge spotted lions on the road ahead. We pulled closer and there were 3 adult females together. Then they went on the hunt along the river where all the buffalo were drinking in the river. We were able to follow along in our vehicle as they approached the buffalo. It was so thrilling to follow along in the hunt and be right beside them. We were actually stopped in the middle between the lions and the buffalo. Crocodiles were plentiful when we drove along the river highlighted by two monsters laying on the shore. The river safari on the electric boats was a good way to see some animals on the river but it was also a nice relaxing river cruise to enjoy the scenery with a drink in hand. The sunsets over the river were spectacular .The variety of activities and beautiful lodge make this a top choice of game lodge.
