From The Old House we are really sorry to hear about your let down, we did know about the boat breaking down and were extremely embarrassed about it, the steering cable had snapped. I assure you that we will improve our experience for all our guests. Safe travels

The hotel has lovely grounds and has a dock right on the water that is great for watching sunsets and viewing river life. The rooms were adequate but in no way justified the high price. The food was passable. We did like the atmosphere in the restaurant / bar area. This place would be a good value at about half...

The rooms here were clean with a small balcony in the garden area. The restaurant food was variable. The guesthouse offers land and river safari to view the Chobe park. The hotel is central to the small town. The river safari was excellent. The staff are helpful and friendly

Stayed at the Old House for a couple nights last fall. Staff was friendly, room was clean, and bar had good food. The game drives and boat rides we booked through the lodge were fantastic. Basic but nice accommodations, would recommend.

The Old House was our home base during our visit in the region. It is an extremely convenient location and has decent facilities and a great staff. The grounds are really cozy with lots of plants and even a wild animal or two wandering around. Our room was #3 that had two twin beds as all the rooms with larger...
