Situated on the Chobe River in the North Eastern corner of Botswana's Chobe National Park, and twenty kilometers upstream from the confluence of the Chobe and Zambezi rivers is a place where the dust speaks of an ancient time, a time when the scent of the dust meant survival or death. And Chobe Game Lodge is part of this place. A Wildlife Paradise Chobe's wildlife roams in profusion and diversity. It is home to the largest concentration of Elephant in Africa and during the dry season the herds congregate along the fertile flood plains of the Chobe River. Large herds of Buffalo also concentrate on the floodplains during the dry season. Other major species such as Lion, Wild Dog, Puku, Red Lechwe, Sable and Roan Antelope are encountered in many areas of the reserve.
This 48 roomed lodge overlooks the Chobe River and Caprivi floodplains. The architecture is Moorish and graceful – high arches, barrel-vault ceilings and tiled floors creating an atmosphere of spaciousness and tranquillity. All 48 rooms are tastefully furnished, each room with hand crafted Rhodesian teak furniture and walls decorated with original African carvings and paintings. Chobe Game Lodge has 4 luxury suites, each with a private swimming pool set on a secluded terrace with breathtaking panoramic views of the open plains.
