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.
"A peaceful retreat"
We stayed at Chobe Savanna Lodge for three nights, with five night stays at bush safari camps before and after. So our stay at Chobe was a chance to relax in incredibly luxurious accomodation. After being met at Kasane immigration point, we were whisked over to Namibia to get our passports stamped and from there we had our first experience of the Chobe River. Travelling up stream with a cold beer in hand we were greeted with the sight of lots of elephants cooling off in the river and our guide gave us plenty of photo stops. On arrival at the lodge we received a great welcome song from the staff and a great cold drink. The lodge building is very comfortable, with separate dining, lounge, afternoon tea and bar areas. The bar with its sweeping view of the river being a standout. The room was very well equipped, air-conditioned and comfortable, on the day that we left the roof was to be re-thatched and we were told that the showers were to be replaced shortly. Food was very well cooked and presented, the staff were all attentive and polite, and friendly!! The game viewing from the water gave a different perspective and was very good. It was disappointing to see many (approximately 15) land based game viewing vehicle on the Botswana side of the river converging on two lionesses. This continued for several hours and is in no way linked the lodge. We saw hippos, elephants, giraffe, lions, crocs and many birds, all of which our guide was able to identify and provide much information about. Probably three nights was enough time here for us, not for any fault of the lodge, but the fact that the game viewing is all water based and hence somewhat limited in its scope. There is an opportunity to visit a local village. We highly recommend the lodge for its relaxing atmosphere and very comfortable surroundings.
We are back in the U.S after a wonderful trip in Africa. We were lucky to have an opportunity to stay at Chobe Savanna L odge East Caprivi, Namibia for 2 nights November 5-7th. We enjoyed the welcome song by the staff,the welcome drinks were also delicious. Lally the Assistant Manager was very friendly and provided us with all the necessary information regarding our activities. Our guide was Felix wow what an amazing gentleman we really enjoyed his knowledge & company. He has a very contagious smile! He was very sweet & professional. Then we met the General Manager Andre (Dr. B) & his beautiful wife Anne Marie were very welcoming. They sat with us during all our meals and we shared so many stories & information, what a wondeful team, they really made us feel at home. They were very knowledgeable about my beautiful country Botswana which made me feel more at home! Our room was beautiful and we had a great view of the Chobe river. We could see elephants from our room balcony and the restaurant! We wish we stayed longer but we will be back very soon!! We also enjoyed the food, on our last night we were surprised with a romantic private dinner for 2 close to the Chobe river, they set it up very nicely and I even requested to meet the wondeful chef to thank her. The servers were also very nice, polite and accommodating. Our guide Felix was extremely patient and made it his mission to show us as many animals as possible during our boat cruises, we will never forget him and everyone!! Thank you to all of you at Chobe Savanna Lodge we will be back & we will definitely recommend you to all our friends! From Orlando Florida U.S.A Ben & Kenzo!
The welcome song, the facilities, the food, the staff, the rooms......EVERYTHING was beyond amazing. The view from our room was like that of a dream. Elephants everywhere! This is a place that MUST be visited before you die. Seriously. We will be back.
This is a wonderful place to stay, made particularly special by the warm and friendly staff who cannot do enough for you. The special messages at each meal and the beautiful farewell song at our last meal will stay in our memories forever. Being on the water is an amazing way to get up close and personal with hippos and elephants, never mind the birds, lions and other animals. Absolutely incredible watching up to a hundred elephant playing and swimming in the river. It was hard to believe what we were seeing! The cultural experience to the village where the friendly village greeted us so warmly was one of the highlights of our time in Southern Africa.
I cant say enough about this amazing place! Staff so friendly and helpful not to mention tuneful! The singing welcome as one walked up from the river was magical! The food was delicious and beautifully presented, and we especially loved the wee messages written in the butter each meal time. The chalets are well equipped with the air conditioning welcome respite from the heat. The game drives on the river a relaxing way to view many elephants, hippo, baboons and even a leopard in Chobe National park.
