Chobe National Park

Chobe Bakwena Lodge

Chobe Bakwena Lodge sits right on the edge of the Chobe River just before it joins the Zambezi en route to Victoria Falls; where Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe meet; where mighty game reserves surround you; where untouched African bush disappears into yet another sensational sunset.

With just 15 chalets, 10 of which have river views the remainder raised on stilts surrounded by the thick riverine woodland, Bakwena offers an intimate and personal safari lodge experience and excellent value.

The large chalets, built of local sand, wood and thatching, are slightly elevated with private balconies secluded by the trees. The huge en suite bathrooms have solar-fired geysers and an extra outdoor shower. The tree houses are built entirely of wood and canvas with thatched roofs and shrouded by the tree canopy for an exciting bush experience.

The main lodge features a large elevated deck at the water’s edge where drinks, meals and lazy days all blend into one. For hotter times, the pool and cool interior of the high thatched roof will be most welcome.

Chobe Bakwena Lodge has an enviable location and we’re not just talking about the magnificent river frontage. Victoria Falls is about an hour’s drive and an easy day-trip away; Chobe National Park is about 20 minutes and the lodge offers guided safaris daily. A river safari on Chobe is equal parts scenic, relaxing, game viewing and bird watching bonanza. And for something different you can take a cycle or walk to the village nearby or try your hand at landing a tiger fish or any of his friends.


Eco-lodge with 15 en suite chalets - 10 with river views, 5 on stilts in the tree canopy; bathrooms with indoor and shower using solar-heated water; huge beds with mosquito drapes; private balcony; main living area with indoor and outdoor dining areas, lounge, viewing deck, campfire and swimming pool

Chobe Elephant Camp

In the vast flatness that is Botswana any vantage point is like gold and Chobe Elephant Camp has struck the mother lode. On a rocky hilltop with the Chobe River below, the endless plains of the Kalahari Basin disappear into the horizon: the sense of timeless space is worth a pocketful of gold any day.

Savute Safari Lodge

The Savuti region of the Chobe National Park is one of the best safari destinations in Botswana and thus, one of the best safari destinations in Africa. Situated along the dry Savuti Channel the Savute Safari Lodge plays host to an exciting melee of elephant, zebra, wildebeest, lion, hyena, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and a great variety of antelopes and large herbivores.
