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.
This lodge is in a great location. Proximity to activities is great as Chobe Park and the Chobe River are on your door step. The Safari Room that we stayed in was well appointed and the shower is big with great water pressure! The staff at the reception were very pleasant and helpful whilst I found the staff in the restaurant to be very inattentive and cold in personality. This maybe due to the high number of foreign speaking tourists passing through the establishment but that is not an excuse. For sports fans,particularly Rugby fans, it is not shown on the TV bouquet which for most Southern African visitors is inconvenient to say the least. News channels are limited to CNN only. The quality of the food was very mediocre but there was plenty of it. I do know that all food items have to be transported some 1000kms so fresh veg and the like are not readily available in the Kasane area. The hotel boasts 2 very good curio shops and are not too expensive. Overall a very pleasant atmosphere but honestly speaking the whole facility needs a little TLC!!

"Central location for Victoria Falls and Chobe Natonal Park"
Chobe Safari Lodge (CSL) is a bustling venue for those wishing to visit Vic Falls and Chobe National Park. It is NOT advisable to drive into Zimbabwe. The country is destitute, car jacking is rife, and the entry fee for a vehicle is horrendous. However, there are several well organized and safe buses that leave from CSL, drop you at Vic Falls and pick you up at the park. CSL parking is safe and patrolled by hotel personnel. Also, CSL is gated with an entrance guard. So leaving your vehicle there is ideal. There is plenty of parking in the back lots. There is a well staffed and attentive attractions booking office separate from the front desk. So you don't have to compete with guests checking in and out while you organize your itinerary. Vic Falls is spectacular and not to be missed. Walking around the falls park is an easy hour or two. That said, the wait for a Zimbabwe visa can be around 2 hours. And they want $30 US. Cash! They have limited small bills. Hand them a $100 bill and they will profess to have no change. So... be warned and draw $50 US in small bills before you go (in case they upped the fee). Look to waste about 5 hours in border bureaucracy and travel to/from CSL after 8 AM. A very worthwhile investment is a helicopter ride over the falls ($160/person 15 mins). The bus will drop you at the airport and the concession will then take you to the falls park, free. (The helicopter concession accepts c/cards. No cash needed.) Suggestion: take the earliest bus to the falls (crack of dawn). The wait for a visa will be minimal then. Be advised that Vic Falls is between Zimbabwe (south access) and Zambia (north access). The south side is the most spectacular, but the north side has a wonderful path to the bottom of the falls. There is a border post on the bridge and I am told Zambia charges a $50 visa fee. (I did the walk many years ago... well worth it.) Also, you need time for THAT bureaucracy. So... overnight in Victoria Falls Village is a good idea if you want to really enjoy this unmatched natural attraction. CSL also offers game drives into Chobe National Park which are well worth it. This small segment of the overall park is teaming with elephants, buffalo, lion, and other wildlife. Another attraction is a river boat ride. Also well worth it. Especially the small group boat rather than the huge cattle barge. From the river you can see elephants, impala, giraffe, buffalo, hippo... drinking and splashing. And -- in particular -- crocodiles, water geckos, geese, egrets, fish eagles... These are more difficult to see from the park roads. I recommend 2 or 3 boat rides and game drives. You can repeat a ride and not see the same wildlife activity twice. Also, I recommend a dawn and/or sunset drive/ride. That is when the animals are most active. (And the light is ideal for photography.) As to the lodging: the room was excellent and the bathroom spotless. The dining was wholesome buffet with an extensive array of choices. Kasane by night may not be wise, so all meals are best at the CSL restaurant. There is an adjunct swimming pool there. Free Wi-Fi is available in the expansive lobby and bar area. Warthogs and gazelle roam the grounds and will keep you enterained. In summary: book several days at CSL and enjoy what Africa has to offer. From a safe and comfortable lodging. Yes, it is more crowded than many other lodges, but the extensive attractions make it worth it.
"Lovely room, wonderful situation and friendly staff"
This was second visit to Chobe but first in the new Safari Lodge. Lovely accommodation with luxury bath facilities after a day on safari. Staff were excellent. Safari driver was both knowledgeable, friendly and patient. The dining room in the main building was a bit dark and crowded but the food was good. The other dining option was more sedate but the food was not quite up to the same standard although it was termed a la carte. Would recommend and would return
"LOVED THE CRUISE ON THE CHOBE RIVER"
We camped here for two nights. Our campsite was very small!!! Unfortunately all the front side campsites were under water due to the recent floods. Great showers and toilets. The only problem was the drainage in the shower. I'm not sure if it was due to the floods but standing in your shower water is not pleasant. There are male?female showers that are all together. No doors into the area, so you must watch out for the warthogs coming through. Hippos can come into the camp at night so make sure that you have a torch for night time trips to the loo. Our highlight was the cruise on the Chobe River. Its was really good to get quite close without disturbing the animals. Watched elephants playing, saw hippos, buffalo, crocs, antelope and loads of birds. A photographers dream. The staff in the activities room at the hotel went the extra mile to ensure that we were looked after. Even booked our campsite in Vic Falls for us at no extra charge. The hotel is really beautiful. Food is of a high standard. A lovely big, clean pool to cool down in and a great place to enjoy sun downers in the evening. Just make sure that you have mozzie spray when you are outdoors. I would love to go back again.
