Chobe Game Lodge offers unparalleled game viewing in Botswana

For that dream safari in Botswana, discover Chobe Game Lodge, definitive icon of all safari lodges that offers unparalleled game viewing right on the Chobe River.  It’s the only sophisticated, five-star establishment that is located within the globally famous Chobe National Park, on the river of the same name. 

Another claim to fame is Chobe Game Lodge’s full eco grading and ecotourism status by the Botswana Tourism Board thanks to its innovative carbon-emission free game drives. Guests go out on the 4 new electric-powered game drive vehicles and boat safaris on the Chobe River are also enjoyed on the new fleet of solar-electric powered safari boats. Their silence never disturbs birds or wildlife and provides a far more enriched experience for tourists.  

Yes, Chobe Game Lodge is our top Botswana safari lodge where you can sit for hours wining and dining on the open and sunny patio, in the starlit boma and from the deck watching elephants crossing the water. Revel in the highest density of elephants in Africa and enjoy sunset cruises and daily game drives with pro guides. Wander the neat boardwalks from the riverside dining area up to the open-air terrace and choose a new spot for dinner every evening. 

Conferences, meetings, seminars, team building events and large celebrations are festively catered for at Chobe Game Lodge where business and pleasure go hand in hand. Work a bit, see the wildlife, work a bit more, go for a boat tour, work a bit more and end the day with a sunset cocktail on the deck or a sundowner game drive into the wilderness!

Luxury accommodation, swimming pool and conference facilities. Choose one of 48 rooms tastefully furnished with hand-crafted Rhodesian teak furniture and decorated with original African carvings and paintings.  All lavish suites face the river and boast air-conditioning, fans, mini bars, modern bathrooms and private patios. The upper-class river view suites are only 4 and are perfectly private with plunge pools and separate lounge areas for that little extra. 

Chobe Game Lodge is all about game viewing on the Chobe, the name says it all! So, embrace the landscape the magical water way and spend your days on the boat and on game drives truly enjoying the wildlife and environment around you. Lions, elephants, waterbuck, red lechwe, puku, buffalos and fish eagles fill your lens every day. Check out our packages to Chobe, Vic Falls, and Zimbabwe for some added excitement.

Overview

Chobe Game Lodge was the first five-star lodge of its kind to be built way back in 1972 and the first and only lodge to be built inside the Chobe National Park along the Chobe riverfront. The best of both worlds, it provides all visitors with an incredible land and river game viewing experience – see the magnificent herds of elephants and the prides of lions Chobe is famous for, right here.

Chobe Game Lodge is large and charismatic – Botswana’s premier venue for game viewing with a female team of staff all committed to their guests, to the wildlife and to reducing the lodge’s impact on the environment.

Reminiscent of a large hotel and just a 20-minute drive from Kasane, Chobe Game Lodge has 48 rooms for about 94 guests at one time. Most rooms have river views and all rooms face the perfect green lawns and gardens with the Chobe National Park sprawling in the distance. Four larger suites boast their own decks with plunge pools and lounges in which to relax. 

The landmark Chobe River within Chobe National Park teems with animals of all sizes and types – tourists flock to the region which makes this part of the park busy with boats and 4×4 safari vehicles. See the largest herds of elephant in the world from this luxury lodge and tick off amazing species of animals on daily game drives: buffalo African Wild Dog, lion pride, sable and roan antelope, giraffe, red lechwe and hippos. In the dry season, game drives reward visitors with photographic opportunities on the Chobe River floodplains.

Boat safaris add another dimension to game viewing at Chobe Game Lodge. Shallow, easy to drive boats are perfect for peaceful, private morning or sunset cruises or guests can opt for the more luxurious Mosi-oa-Tunya double-decker river cruiser with full bar and snacks. All game drives and boat cruises are eco-friendly (electric or solar powered) and silent too with zero carbon emissions. 

Stroll down to the Chobe River and take the boardwalk to see the river and its wildlife. This green addition to the lodge is made from recycled plastic but looks and feels like real wood. Lovely seats allow guests to ponder life and soak in the awesome African views.
