Chobe Safari Lodge Campground

by SirRichard

The expensive and marvellous Chobe Safari Lodge has a section for "low budget visitors", an area for camping in the background.
Is close to the river and has its own showers and so. And you can enjoy the swimming pool of the Lodge too. Is a good option if you don't have much money to spend

On the banks of the Chobe river

by tompt about Chobe Safari Lodge

This lodge is situated on the banks of the Chobe river. Next to luxury accomodation there are also camping facilities. Make a sunset cruise on the Chobe river and have a barbeque afterwards!

Chobe Safari Lodge

by SirRichard

This lodge by the river bank is an adequate medium range accomodation. They have nice round cabins in a green garden, swimming pool and a pleasant terrace overlooking the river.
From the Hotel pier depart boat excursions to visit the Chobe Nat. Park.

Nice Hotel in Chobe

by Julestoo about Chobe Safari Lodge

The hotel was older but much more advanced than expected. Air conditioning and ceiling fans were available. Great views of the river was incredible. A piece of civiliazation in the Delta. The great elephants were everywhere in August. You couldn't look in a direction without seeing them.

Mid price range safari lodge

by tryhard about Chobe Safari Lodge

Chobe Safari Lodge is one of the oldest lodges in Botswana but has been continually upgraded over the years. Right on the riverfront the lodge has river view rooms very comfortably appointed. There are two suites which are roomy and quite luxurious and worth the extra dosh for a night or two. There are also smaller chalets in the gardens for a cheaper rate and camp sites. The lodge runs game drives morning and night and offers sunset cruises on the river, mokoro rides and other activities.
There is a nice pool and outdoor dining area next to the river.

Charming campsite...

by TracyG about Chobe Safari Lodge

It is in a lovely setting, right on the Chobe river. The staff are very very friendly and it also has a great bar. It stands right on the river, so you get amazing views, but it also has a lovely bar area and a great swimming pool. They can also organize safaris into Chobe and cruises on the river.

Casual Comfort

by scieyence about Chobe Safari Lodge

I stayed here on a package deal that included meals, a boat trip, game drive, and transfers to/from the airport. This was a very nice place to get acclimated to the time zone and new environment. Highly recommend this place. Located along the Chobe River, my luxury room was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. There was even a television. The dining facility was located on the decks with a view of the river. The swimming pool and bar were adjacent as well. Meals were buffet style and quite adequate in terms of selection and quality.

In Chobe, there is a wonderful...

by catarata

In Chobe, there is a wonderful camping and lodge, just by the edge of the Chobe National Park, named Chobe Safari Lodge , a big area where you can accomodate from camping (about 18 pula=US$3 per night/person), to luxury rooms by the river (about 395 pula=US$ 70.5 ), and many other possibilities. It´s a beautiful and big place where you can see many animals... in fact, you can find messages everywhere warning from crocodiles and hippos!!!!
Range from US$3 to US$ 70.5

Great African Experience

by do9an about Chobe Safari Lodge

This is a very nice hotel right next to the magical Chobe river. We had a great room with river views, and with great African decorations. The restaurant, lobby and the pool side were all nicely planned and decorated with a great ambiance. The staff were attentive, and quite professional according to our limited African experience. The extras were reasonably priced. There was an activity centre which offered wide variety of activities (including game drives, river cruises etc). I should note that, I would not recommend the romantic dinner cruise, firstly it is nothing but romantic, secondly you see nothing at night in river, and fighting constantly with insects in candle light, and trying to eat is not fun. Lastly, you may share your romantism with loud teenagers, or elderly couples with not much humour. I would however recommend private boat hires, which is much better than the organised river cruise. The food is not bad, and the contents of the open buffet changes daily. Pool is nice and cleaned regularly. The only problem was the poor sound isolation in the room which may become a problem if you have a family with small children staying right above your room. Chobe is an amazing park, with wide variety of animals (above all a huge elephant herds). We even managed to see a lazy lion in daylight. You are very likely to see hippos, crocs, giraffes, buffalos, a lot of impala, kudu, eagles, vultures etc. However there is no cheetahs, or rhinos in this park. I would certainly recommend the whole experience.

Any Ideas!!!

by temba

Around May next year 2006 my husband and myself are planning on doing a trip from Namibia, to Botswana and then onto Vic falls.
Can anyone help out with some sort of itinerary.
We are on a fairly tight budget so recommending fairly inexpensive places to stay would be a big help.
We want to hire a 4x4 vechile and try to do this ourselves as part of the fun is stopping and starting whenever we want.
Scenery and game spotting is our main objective is.
Can anyone help out with experiences that you may have had and would like to share with us... we would be forever greatful.


RE: RE: Any Ideas!!!

by temba

Thanks Keith SA.
We plan on staying for +/- 15 days.


RE: RE: Any Ideas!!!

Hi Temba,
Please be patient, I will draw up a plan for you, just very busy at the moment.

RE: Any Ideas!!!

by Park1

Hi Andy,
As promised here is what I would suggest. I am starting from Maun in Botswana, presuming you have hired a 4X4 in Windhoek.
Camp at Audi Camp ( ). Here you need to do your shopping for supplies, meat drinks etc. so spend maybe 2 nights.
Travel to Moremi game reserve and camp at least 2 nights at North Gate. (Enjoy the Hyenas - monkeys and baboons are a pest).
From North Gate travel north to Savuti, spend at least 2 nights there, and continue North to Linyanti, lovely on the river bank.
From here travel to Chobe - Kasane. Plenty of places to choose there, recomend Chobe Safari Lodge or Torro Lodge. From Kasane to Vic Falls is only a couple of hours drive, more time is spent getting through the borders.
The number of days you spend at each of these sites is up to you, but I recommend no less than 2 nights at each.

Botswana Road Trip

by samjwjones


I will be travelling with some friends to Botswana in September. We'll be based in Gabs but moving around a bit. We have a car, but not a 4x4, so are planning to drive to various lodges and campsites and get organised trips into game reserves. Are the places I have selected to stay at good? A couple of my friends are students so I can't be too extravagant.

Day 1: Gabs ---> Francistown for a couple of hours ---> Nata lodge

Day 2: Something fun in the morning then on to Kasane (Chobe Safari Lodge)

Day 3-5: Game drives, boat trips and fishing

Day 6: Off to Maun. Is it actually possible to drive direct from Kasane to Maun? There seems to be a road indicated on the maps, but I read somewhere else that "Nata is the halfway point between Kasane and Maun", suggesting that you have to go the long way around. We'll be staying at the Audi Camp.

Day 7-8: 2 day Moroko Trip with overnight camping. How good is this? I imagine it will be incredible...

Day 9: Back to Gabs, possibly via the Pans.

Any advice / suggestions? Thanks in advance :)

Re: Botswana Road Trip

by samjwjones

Thanks a lot for your help! I've checked out the rhino sanctuary and it looks great so we'll definitely be adding that. As for the rest of the places in the plan, they all sound ok?

by jeffsmith

Once you get to Kasane, don't forget that Livingstone and Victoria Falls are just ~60 kms and a ferry ride away.

We are making a 13-day trip in Botswana around Chobe and Moremi. Can you recommend us where we can best hire a fully equipped 4WD (starting in Maun)?

An agency made an itenary for us for the 13-day trip mostly at camp sites. They came up with a total price of around US$2200 per person. Do you know if this is expensive or not?

Do you have more tips for our trip?

Thanks in advance.

Kia ora. We are going to many of the same places in July. Can you give me an idea of the temperatures at this time of the year? we have been told to take warm clothes because it is cold but am not sure if this is cold on local terms or really cold. did you travel there at this time of the year? I'd appreciate any information. thanks, Lyn
