Over Chobe Savanna Lodge
Omdat de prachtige Chobe Savanna Lodge direct aan de rivier ligt, zijn nagenoeg alle activiteiten gerelateerd aan het water. U kunt vanuit de bar al van dichtbij wilde dieren en vogels zien. De staf organiseert onder meer boottochten, een excursie naar een nabijgelegen lokaal dorpje of u kunt mee gaan vissen. In het hoofdgebouw met rieten dak en omgeven door houten balustrades vindt u de lounge, een bibliotheek, eetkamer en de bar. De zeer smaakvol ingerichte suites (slechts 12 chalets) in Afrikaanse stijl zijn om het zwembad gebouwd. Omdat de lodge midden in een wildgebied ligt en de meeste dieren hier vrij toegang hebben, wordt u zodra het donker is naar uw kamer begeleid. U wordt per boot naar de lodge gebracht. De maaltijden, lokale drankjes en safari-activiteiten zijn inbegrepen.

Aan de overkant van het Chobe National Park van Botswana, direct aan de rivier in Namibië.
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.
"Wish we could have stayed longer"
We stayed here for two days on our trip around Namibia. Our experience here started when we arrived by boat at the Lodge's landing stage and were greeted by the staff singing a song of welcome in their wonderful melodious African voices. It's a beautiful place to be and the service is excellent. Game drives along the river in one of the Lodge's boats was a relaxing and interesting way to view the abundant wildlife in the area. The chalets are luxuriously appointed with stocked fridge, air con and everything else which you might reasonably expect. Our chalet faced the Chobe river - about 20 metres away and we were able to see wildlife on the opposite river bank from veranda. All in all, a wonderful place to stay
Our adventure began with the boat ride up the river to Chobe Savannah Lodge to a lovely welcome on arrival. Our hut was gorgeous with every mod con including air conditioning and the view was beautiful over the savannah to the river. John and Lally were great hosts and the staff could not have done any more for us, especially 'Holiday' in the dining room as she always had a smile. The main lodge was out of this world with views to die for across the river. Lally was our guide on the river safaris and we particularly liked drinking our red wine at sundown while watching the lions and elephants drinking from the river. We saw hippos, water buffalo, giraffes, zebras, baboons, crocodiles, impala and many, many birds. Lally took us to the local village and we were entertained by the women with their babies - such a lovely sight. Make sure you get Lally to dance with the women as he was very good. We gave them some things from Australia such as pencils, pens and other useful items for the children and they were very excited. We are now going to send a parcel of our unwanted good quality clothes to the village via John who will give them to the families. We are so lucky to have had the opportunity to see the local people both in the village and in the resort. We would love to go back again some day.
"Up Close & Personal"
I have just had the privilege of staying at Chobe Savanna Lodge for a little getaway. The lodge is in the best position in the entire area as it sits on its own peninsula with the Chobe wrapping around the entire lodge with every room and viewing deck having uninterrupted views over the water. The views are filled with 180 degrees of herds of elephants, journeys of giraffe all day - too beautiful. What is even more special is that on our evening cruise, we didn't have to go far - just across the river - where a huge herd of elephants were grazing and playing in the water where we moored our boat and had the most personal experience with these Oms-In-Motion as they drank, played, grazed around us without any fear or fuss. I've grown up in the bush and this is hands-down the most special and personal encounter I have ever had with elephants ever. For those that want to get away from the madding crowd of Chobe and Kasane, this lodge is the perfect place to visit.
"A true piece of African Heaven."
What an amazing lodge, right on the banks of the Chobe river. Very comfortable, not over the top opulence, just good old home feelings! John, Lally and the entire crew are absolutely off the top shelf. Attentive, friendly, always willing to go the extra mile and just GREAT fun company. We will be back... AGAIN... AND AGAIN... AND AGAIN :)
"Unique elephant safari ( and more) by boat on Chobe River in Namibia"
This was our second visit to this wonderful river safari lodge in the Caprivi portion of Namibia, located directly across the river from Botswana and an easy trip from Victoria Falls. The lodge manager John and his all African staff are absolutely top notch.The animal and bird sightings by pontoon boat are a delight and a relaxing change from safari lodge jeeps and landrovers. There is nothing quie tlike the sight of a huge herd of elephants,of all ages,including tiny baby elephants, in the water and about to swim across together from Botswana to Namibia or back and the unforgettable silouette sight of a tower of giraffes performing their special gymnastics to bend down to drink from the Chobe river. Go there and revel in this wonderful place and meet and enjoy the friendly down to earth Namibian people. Jan
