This is such an amazing place. As wonderful the second time around. From the game drives in an electric vehicle to the boat rides in an electric boat, a first class experience. This property has the "chobe angels" - an all female guides. Our guide was Neo. She found lots of great game for us and we had a blast...

Was so impressed with the customer service at this lodge-- management, with special kudos to Graham, attended almost every function making sure all concerns and wishes were met and things were running smoothly. For those who may be interested-- this lodge is totally wheelchair accessible.The lodge is beautiful and there are many outdoor seating areas overlooking the river. Room was...

What a great introduction to safaris! I was there with a Road Scholar Tour. The lodge is gorgeous, and the rooms are elegant. I like that all the guides are women. Our guide Anna was very well informed, both on the boat (which is solar powered!) and the safari vehicles, which are electric, therefore not very noisy as well as...

Superb service would return in a heart beat. The room was beautifully funished and I loved the location. Chobe is remote but has just the right amount of luxury not to spoil a true African experience. The luggage was taken to and from our room on arrival and departure without us having to request this. I loved my stay here...

Being a resident of Botswana, we secured a good price however the suite was still excessively expensive. We arrived the day they reopened after refurbishments and appeared a little disorganised (although didn't help last minute change to arrival dates). The Suite was amazing with our own pool and 2 bedroom apartment and it was perfect. Fully stocked bar that was...

On our drive through the park in to the lodge we saw a number of animals before we arrived. We chose Chobe Game Lodge because we wanted a safari that was on a river. Completely different from safaris in the middle of the bush because animals either reside in the river or come to it daily. Another important factor is...

This place knows how to treat their guests like royals. The lodge is very stylish decorated in a Zimbabwe meets Marocco style. The food was delicate and variated. In the evenings they had dance and singing performances with the staff. All the guides were women, wich is very rear in Africa. Our guide did her best for us to have...

Chobe Game Lodge facilities are elegant, but made to look rustic. The staff is amazing and are available for our every whim. They are pleasant, helpful and it was fantastic to note that women do all the game drives. They were by far the best, most considerate and knowledgeable drivers we had on any game drive. The free flowing wine...
