I have just had the privilege of staying at Chobe Savanna Lodge for a little getaway. The lodge is in the best position in the entire area as it sits on its own peninsula with the Chobe wrapping around the entire lodge with every room and viewing deck having uninterrupted views over the water. The views are filled with 180... More

What an amazing lodge, right on the banks of the Chobe river. Very comfortable, not over the top opulence, just good old home feelings! John, Lally and the entire crew are absolutely off the top shelf. Attentive, friendly, always willing to go the extra mile and just GREAT fun company. We will be back... AGAIN... AND AGAIN... AND AGAIN :)

What an amazing place. The boat ride in was the start of a wonderful couple of days. The welcome was warm. The accommodation was very comfortable and each lodge was very private.

The only issue I had was that there was no phone from the room, a stand alone chalet, to the main lodge. We had a slight problem with the netting above the bed falling down and no way to get it...

Thank you so much for sharing this lovely feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.

Chobe Savanna Lodge is in a beautiful location surrounded by a lot of animals on the riverbanks and grasslands beyond the river. Very peaceful place to relax and unwind... Nice to visit a local village and learn about some of their customs also.
