It is always such a pleasure looking after our guests and I am happy you were well looked after and that you did enjoy your stay with us. I am indeed happy that we could host you after your booking was changed to us, perfect.

We stayed 4 days/3nights at Chobe Marina and it exceeded our expectations. Our lodge was a suite giving us space to relax as well as sleep. It was clean and comfortable, with mesh shutters as well as windows allowing you to have the windows ajar...More
