Chobe Safari Lodge has a prime position overlooking the Chobe River and, surrounded by lush gardens, is quite a romantic spot.
Here you can stay in a variety of accommodation such as suites, rooms, bungalows and even camping. The rooms are very simple with double beds, a desk and an en-suite as well as TV, WiFi and room service.
But let's be fair, if you come all this way you are not going to be spending much of your time in the room anyway. Outside you have a huge pool waiting for you, an open plan restaurant overlooking the pool and that gorgeous view of the river and a small island opposite that would make anyone back home jealous. When you go have dinner, make sure to dive into a Kudu steak, it's the best one you will ever have.
There is also a little shop, a health and beauty salon and cocktail bar for your to indulge in with gifts, a new holiday look and a fancy drink on top of it all just because you deserve it.
With this picture-perfect view and never-ending river, sitting at the pool all day will be tempting but make sure to tackle land and water with that private boat cruise or a game drive to see the iconic Chobe elephants. If you are tempted by what's around the corner you can even book an overnight or day trip to go to the Victoria Falls.
It is worth the mention that Chobe Safari Lodge is the oldest lodge in the region, so while some small details may be out of date (and style) other things have been perfected. Here it's all about the safari experience and you're bound to have one of the most memorable safari experiences by far.
Chobe Safari Lodge has an activity centre and runs its own guided game drives and boating safaris, the latter comes highly recommended. The evening sunset cruise aboard the larger boat is lovely but no match for the private boat safari, where you can explore the birdlife, elephants, hippos, crocs and the host of plains game that comes down to the river each evening to drink.
The booking centre also offers day trips to Victoria Falls, birding and walking safaris, boat hire, fishing trips, village visits across the river in Namibia, scenic flights and day trips to the Okavango Delta - in case you missed it on your way in.
