A wonderful experience, refreshing and quality service. The hotel's location also is so strategic as it faces the fascinating mighty Chobe River. Not only the Chobe River as an entity, it also provides a panoramic view of the flood plains of Namibia, the rich reed growths along the river which bring a phenomenal natural environment. Who can forget the warthogs...

The rooms are beautiful and clean, the buffets are very nice, and the staff is wonderful. You'll see baboons and wart hogs outside your window as you look out over the Chobe River. We had a small problem with flooding (we came during the rainy season) and the staff quickly moved us to a new room.

The room was so conducive and the location of the room was good as it is facing the river. The room size was so big and the ablution was clean all the time. All the sockets and the electrical equipment such as TV and Aircon were working property.

We stayed here while we were on safari with Gate 1. Excellent location, close to the river and Chobe National Park. They have two restaurants on site, one is buffet and the other is a la carte. I felt that were both very good. The rooms were two room apartments with a sitting area and a bedroom both had sliding...

The rooms were excellent and the staff very friendly. The check in and check out process was very efficient. However there should be an improvement on the dinner menu especially when there is no buffet.

Food is fine, but what a nice place to hang out for a few hours using the free wifi, having a cold one, and nice views and comfy seating. Park inside the security gate. Guests not staying there are welcome as long as you are prepared to buy a meal.

Thank you for using Chobe Marina Lodge for a break from camping and thank you for the compliments. Everybody is welcome to our bars for a cold beverage and a good meal, perhaps next time you will stay with us, we would really like to welcome you back some day.

Spent three nights here and greatly enjoyed it. The grounds are beautiful and the pool and bar awesome. Our room was large and had a great view of the river. We saw warthogs and crocodiles right from our deck! Staff is efficient and very friendly. The onsite restaurant is excellent with many choices at the buffet.
