This is the only lodge that exists inside the Chobe National Park on the river front area. Similar to Chobe Game Lodge it concentrates on a high level of service rather than being a bush lodge, testament to the fact is that it has 47 rooms.
It does offer daily game drives and sunset boat cruises but the fact that it has a conference room suggests where its loyalty lies. Its not that its a bad lodge, in fact it is a very good lodge with great modern facilities and good dining, but just don’t go if you are expecting an intimate bush camp.
We would say however that you are very limited in choice as to where to stay either in the river area of the park or just outside, so Chobe Game Lodge is a very good choice in that respect.

Like the Greater Linyanti, the Chobe River Front is teeming with buffalo and elephant. Away from the river is mile upon mile of dry land only dotted with waterholes, therefore the river is an absolute haven for the game that needs it. As ever, if there is a large presence of game, there are large numbers of predators, mostly lion.
On the flats around the river area, aside from the normal game, the more interesting antelope you may see are good levels of red lechwe, the similar looking puku and the rare Chobe bushbuck. To the southern end of the chobe rover area can be found good numbers of roan and sable antelope, and if you are lucky, more inland you will find eland.
Birdlife, as expected on the river area can be spectacular and you may see birds that may be more difficult to see elsewhere such as African skimmers, spoonbills and giant kingfishers. Together with a surprising array of raptors, the Chobe river front area is a stupendous location for birders.

The only permanent game lodge situated within the famous Chobe National Park, Chobe Game Lodge is Botswana’s premier venue for guests looking for a perfect base to explore Chobe National Park and the Chobe River.
Chobe’s wildlife roams in abundance and diversity and is home to the largest concentration of elephant in Africa. During the dry season these large herds, as well as vast herds of buffalo, congregate along the fertile flood plains of the Chobe River where they come to drink, bathe and play. Sightings of lion, African wild dog, puku, red lechwe, sable, giraffe and roan antelope are frequent reported in the area.
This lodge is a unique sprawling hotel syle accommodation on the banks of the Chobe River.
A fully equipped and air conditioned conference room seats up to 100 people, and for guests who need to keep in touch, broadband internet access is available at the Thwene bar, a stylish cigar bar with a champion sized billiard table and outside terrace overlooking the Chobe River.
Chobe Game Lodge also has a well-stocked reference library with lounge and terrace. The Lodge can accommodate up to 94 people in total luxury and the extensive facilities include a large swimming pool with adjacent terrace and a grassy riverside boma area where a Marimba band or traditional dancers can perform.
Guests wishing to pamper themselves can schedule an appointment with our in-house beautician or book our gym for a private workout.
Each of the 47 rooms at the lodge is river facing and air conditioned, featuring overhead fans, complimentary mini bar, en-suite bathrooms and private terrace.
For those guests who demand the ultimate in exclusivity, Chobe Game Lodge has four river view suites, each with their own plunge pool and a separate lounge area.
Given National Park status in 1967, this immense area’s history dates back many years previous when the governing body of the region declared it a non-hunting zone. As the Kwando and Linyanti river sections wind their way through the northern edge of Botswana the river widens and becomes the Chobe river, one of the great rivers of Africa.
Bordering the Northern edge of the National Park, this river quenches the thirst of large numbers of animals, thus making it one of the best places to see game in Botswana. Famous for its large herds of elephant and buffalo, The Chobe River Front gives you perhaps the best sunsets, viewing african skimmers skirting inches above the surface as a background to the large herbivores drinking under a blood red sun.
