We stayed in the Garden Lodge for 3 Days. The crews were very helpful and guide provided were excellent! They always try to minimize the group and we were fortunate to have just two of us for whole 3 days. It is very close to Chobe National Park on both Land and River (both less than 5 min) and both...

Small and cozy, this is just the right medicine in a part of the country that is so busy, surrounded by huge hotels. Nothing is nicer than coming out of the Delta and having such a treat along the Chobe.

We stayed at the Garden Lodge for two nights during our honeymoon. The lodge is very nice and our game drives/river cruises with Tefo were excellent...we saw so much wildlife and Tefo was extremely knowledgeable about everything we saw. The food was also really good and better than what we received at another, more expensive safari lodge. Emily and Mark,...

A homey, relaxed atmosphere awaits you at Garden Lodge. Excellent food, great conversation and attention to details such as dietary restrictions make you feel you are a valued guest. River and game drives were excellent.

From our arrival we received personal attention from management. They joined us for meals and gave excellent advice on what to do.All staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was well presented and very tasty. A birding and game viewing by boat was a highlight.

We felt right at home :) the rooms were very spacious and the staff we all very friendly. Not for one second did it feel like we were staying in a lodge but like we were at home. We did the boat cruise and our guide made it absolutely worth it. Will definitely go back there again and will recommend...

If you are looking for a boutique lodge that will cater to your needs, you need to look no further. There are only 8 unique rooms here and they offer boat and drive safari's everyday with their staff.

This is a very nice place to stay on a holiday. Accommodation is excellent, service is very good, the food is superb and the people are very friendly. The hotel is located very close to the river and it has a good view from the hotel.

We were a family of four adults, and I personally had no expectations:,that's how I always travel. But, man, this place is great! Good food, good service, great location and a very warm atmosphere. Rooms with air conditioner is a delight when you arrive from your game viewing under 40 C degrees of heat. Do not hesitate, try it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We built The Garden Lodge with the specific intention of offering personal service to a small number of guests. There are many fine lodges in the area, however most have over 100 beds, we have 22. The lodge has eight bedrooms (4 standard double/twin bed rooms, 3 family rooms with 4 beds each and 1 smaller double/twin room. ). All rooms with own bathrooms and private verandahs overlooking the Chobe River.We are truly a garden lodge. The combination of unlimited water and constant sunshine allows hibiscus, frangipani, bougainvillea, banana and paw paw to grow in profusion. Guests love the garden and the prolific birds attracted to the flowers and fruits. ... more   less
