Welcome to the down-to-earth Muchenje Safari Lodge, the finest Botswana safari venue near Chobe National Park waiting to be part of your special holiday package. Find it standing high up on an escarpment overlooking Namibia’s Caprivi Strip, deep inside the private Chobe Forest Reserve, in a much quieter setting than popular Botswana Lodges closer to the Chobe Riverfront.
Book Muchenje Safari Lodge accommodation as an option for your Botswana safari package in Chobe and it includes all meals and drinks, transfers between Kasane, wildlife activities and trips to the local village. This is your value for money meets adventure in Africa vacation.
Hosted by the owners themselves, you are drawn into the special aura of Muchenje Safari Lodge in an ideal position of forests, floodplains, rivers and grasslands between Namibia and Botswana, a platform for wildlife in its enormous diversity. Game viewing alternates between game drives in 4×4 vehicles, walking safaris and dramatic boating trips on the charismatic Chobe River to find birds and animals on their peaceful watery level. See large elephant herds, buffalos grazing in large groups, lions lazing under trees and leopards leaping up trees.
Back at the lodge, enjoy lively sessions around the bar with innovative cocktails and enjoy the meals created by the vibrant kitchen staff who love what they do, for you. Share your stories on the extensive deck with its flawless riverfront views and make sure you visit the local school too to see how ecotourism benefits the local communities.
Muchenje is open to the elements, under large shady trees, the swimming pool a great place to be in the heat of the day and the buffet lunches a great way to energise the busy game-viewing activities. Sunbathe on the deck before the sundowner drives to find nocturnal animals on the move.
The down-to-earth Muchenje Safari Lodge is the perfect Botswana Safari venue from its elevated position on an escarpment overlooking Namibia’s Caprivi Strip and onwards to the meandering Chobe River in the distance. Located in the private Chobe Forest Reserve, west of Chobe National Park and about 50km from Kasane, Muchenje Safari Lodge enjoys a much quieter setting than Botswana Lodges closer to the Chobe Riverfront.
Less luxury but more comfort and attention to detail make this Botswana accommodation a good choice for travellers who care simply about game viewing and meeting warm-hearted hosts. It’s a great place to stay in the Chobe region when tourists arrive in their droves to see the elephants and lions on the river as it is quieter and removed from the frenetic valley scenes. It is great to view concentrated wildlife during the months of June to October and staying at Muchenje means early escapes to the privacy of your suite when things get crowded.
Your stone and thatched suite is a solid warm home created to make the most of the awe-inspiring views over the floodplains and forests of the Chobe Forest Reserve and undulating grasslands of the captivating Caprivi Strip in Namibia. Tucked into their own bits of lush vegetation, these private chalets are ideal resting pads between hectic game-viewing escapades and the family chalet offers a fun loft room for two children. Enjoy air-conditioning, fans, ensuite showers, tea and coffee-making facilities, decks with chairs and so much more!
The lodge has been built especially for the views so take them in all day and enjoy the split-level thatched main areas of stone where you can meet with other guests at the bar, dine on huge buffet meals and swim in the pool when the going gets rough. Retreat to the library and buy books at the curio shop, simply enjoy this space!
