Chobe Game Lodge is located within the boundries of the Chobe National Park – one of its strong selling points. Overlooking the mighty Chobe River, that forms Botswana’s northern boundry with Namibia, the Chobe Game Lodge is one of Southern Africa’s premier game viewing destinations, especially when it comes to big game such as elephant, buffalo and lion. During the dry months, large herds of elephant and buffalo trail down the ancient game paths to the Chobe River to quench their thirst. These iconic African animals and an abundance of other wildlife utilize the fertile banks of the Chobe, along with the attendant big predators such as lion & leopard.
Chobe Game Lodge Accommodation
The lodge itself caters for about ninety four guests in discreet luxury. All the rooms are ensuite and ai conditioned along with overhead fans, so the African heat that can make itself known over certain times of the year, is well managed. All rooms have minibars and private verandahs that gaze over the Chobe River and distant flood plains.
The lodge also has four exclusive suites which have their own plunge pools and separate lounges allowing complete privacy for guests wanting that level of experience. In addition to the very comfortable accommodations, Chobe Game Lodge has broad band internet, a conference facility, a large swimming pool and a boma area for dinners under the star covered night skies.
Safaris at Chobe Game Lodge
Safaris at Chobe Game Lodge aim to make use of the wild terrain well, and therefore offer water based and land based safaris. Morning and afternoon game drives are guided in open vehicles in the Chobe National Park and it is on these drives that guests can hope to see amazing interaction between wildlife as well as get a feel for the strong African atmosphere.
River based safari activities take place in small motor boats perfect for fishing and game viewing whilst cruising the river banks. A double decker boat makes for the perfect sundowner cruise. The height of the boat gives extra visibility over the remarkably flat terrain of the Chobe flood plains.
