Wonderful views at Muchenje Lodge

There are wonderful views from Muchenji Lodge and it was a pleasure to sit and look over the Chobe River and the plains beyond.

The staff and service were excellent and the guided 4WD trips were fun and exciting.

The food was excellent and sociable as we ate together at the end of the day.

A nice camp close to the park entrance

A nice camp with good access to the Chobe River section of the park, which is where huge herds of elephant and buffalo can be found.

However, this is not a wilderness lodge (you reach the park via a tarmac) road.

Muchenje Safari Lodge review

We really enjoyed the stunning views from the Lodge.

We particularly relished the combined game drive/river trip which gave close contact with such a huge variety of wildlife.

Among other spectacles we were treated to sightings of huge numbers of elephants, some very close up.

Muchenje's superb escarpment location

A wonderful location looking down on the huge herds of zebra, buffalo and other animals far below.

The boat trip on the Chobe river was memorable, getting so close to crocodiles (!), huge numbers of elephants, over 50 hippos out grazing in the middle of the day - we'd always believed they only left the water to graze after dark. Not to mention wonderful views of various water birds at close quarters. Also the wonderful lunch!

After the freedom of the game drives at Kwara , it was frustrating having to keep to the tracks in the National Park. On quite a number of occasions our guide/driver found spoor which he was not allowed to follow. Still no leopard!

Muchenje Safari Lodge review

Loved this safari lodge. Again staff were delightful and our guide, Rambo, was excellent, patient and knowledgeable. We also enjoyed a very educative early morning walk with Paul. The owners were very helpful as well.

Only slight complaint was that the rooms didn't have much storage space so our bags had to be used as storage, too, which meant they were slightly in the way when the mosquito nets came down at night. If there had been more coat hangers I think we could have disposed more easily of them. But that's a minor complaint! The rest was excellent.

Excellent stay at Muchenje Safari Lodge

We had a great time at Muchenje. From the welcome to the goodbyes, it felt as if we were staying with friends. Robert and Joy, Natasha and John run everything perfectly.

Our room was very comfortable and well-equipped, with wonderful views. The dining room and bar were very welcoming and comfortable, again with the views across the river. Our guide, Synack, made our stay memorable, finding hordes of animals and birds. He was very knowledgable and informative. The boat-trip, the village visit and the walk were all as interesting as the game drives.

The food was excellent and the shared meals very convivial. Joy had noted that we were to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary later during our holiday and presented us with a card and a bottle of bubbly to mark the occasion, a lovely gesture, much appreciated.

Would definitely love to return, and would recommend to anyone visiting Chobe area.

Muchenje Safari Lodge review

This lodge is a one in a lifetime holiday venue, there was so much to see and do, and sometimes it's a little exhausting, we were out all the 3 days we were there and returned to the lodge usually about 6 pm, there was no flexibility with the evening meal and I found it a rush to be at the dinner table with everyone else for the comunial dining , all the staff were very knowledgable and the trips out fantastic. Nothing was to much trouble.
