Chobe Game Lodge
Chobe Game Lodge is a well-established hotel in the bush. Just a 40-minute drive from Kasane, it occupies a stunning position beside the Chobe River and is the only permanent lodge within the riverfront area of Botswana's Chobe National Park. The lodge was originally made famous by Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, who chose to marry there in the mid-1970s, and has since been substantially upgraded.
Our view of Chobe Game Lodge
Chobe Game Lodge has an enviable location inside the park. Although undeniably large, it is an excellent lodge and well run, where they strive to make guests feel welcome as individuals. Their new rooms are looking fantastic; a far cry from the outdated rooms of the past. The lodge’s attitudes are far from dated, too; we were impressed by its modern approach and pro-active efforts to reduce its environmental impact. But for us, it was the team that made it special – and, of course, the wildlife. Just be aware that the park gets busy, so expect to see other vehicles on game drives – and on the water.
