Chobe Safari Lodge and Lodges in South Africa and Namibia


Chobe Safari Lodge is the best destination for the serious game viewer. It borders the Chobe National Park, where the series of islands, floodplains and lakes ensure an abundance of wildlife. There are more than 80 000 elephants, huge herds of buffalo and many other species of animals. The Lodge has been renovated and offers superb value for money accommodation in luxury River Rooms, Safari Rooms, traditional thatched rondavels, and an established campsite. Diners can choose between three restaurants or bars, or dine on board the Fish eagle II or the Kingfisher II while cruising on the Chobe River.

Although you have various options to fly from South Africa to Chobe, you will need to hire a car or 4x4 from Temba Car Hire in Kasane. Other recommended alternatives for cheaper accommodation and camping near Chobe Safari Lodge would be SENYATI SAFARI LODGE self-catering (self-contained) accommodation at Kazangula or Toro Lodge Chobe.
