Muchenje Safari Lodge

Muchenje Safari Lodge

"Friendly, helpful staff - scenic location."

3 nights Arrived 6 Jul 2008
"The cabin was great, lodge location very scenic overlooking the Chobe river plain from an elevated river bank, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Just a short drive to the national park.

The night safari could be safer, the driver was also the spot light operator - other camps have a second person to operate the spot light."

Lebala Camp

Lebala Camp

"Authentically wild setting."

2 nights Arrived 9 Jul 2008
"The cabin was great, lodge location made me feel truly in the wild - elephants ate from the tree beside my cabin at night, and the staff was friendly and helpful.

I felt the jeep safaris were too long - 4 hours each, twice a day. There was only 1 type of activity offered at Lebala - the jeep safari, therefore 2 days is fine."

Little Kwara

Little Kwara

"Lions, cheetahs and leopards!"

3 nights Arrived 11 Jul 2008
"The cabin was great, during July (winter) there is no water near the lodge - just a pond in the distance.

The staff was friendly and helpful. I felt the jeep safaris were too long - 4 hours each, twice a day. The boat trip into the delta was fun but too short - this could be expanded into a full day trip. After the previous 7 days of jeep safari without seeing a large cat it was great to see lions, cheetahs and leopards all in the same day!

The mokoro ride is only in a large pond not in the actual delta channels."

Meno A Kwena

Meno A Kwena

"Laid back, prehaps a little too much."

3 nights Arrived 14 Jul 2008
"The Tent was excellent, staff were helpful but not particularly friendly (english may have a problem for some - I often recieved only a nod in response to my comment or question).

Often staff did not know when things (dinner, guided walk) were going to begin or end - just approximations. Don't worry be happy seemed to be the camp philosophy.

The location of the camp is scenic - on an elevated river bank of a dried-up river with a combustion pump filled water hole below - probably should be replaced by a noiseless solar arrangement.

The sleep out on the salt pan is run by another lodge - Gweta, that were friendly and professional.

I had asked for it on 2nd last day so I would have a day to recover before flying home but Meno A Kwena ran it on my last night which resulted in a a marathon journey home starting from an isolated salt pan requiring an hour of rough trail to just to reach paved roads, then 2 hours to the airport.

I would of liked a day trip to the kalahari. The Boteti "river" was mostly a series of artificailly sustained water holes attracting wildlife."
