Home. The place where you live. Perhaps with family. Perhaps with friends. It means something different to everyone. It may be humble, it may be grand. A happy place? Where the heart is? There’s no place like it... And Kwalape means home. In Setswana. Welcome.
8 camping sites including ones for overland and private tours. All are equipped with power points, water stand pipe and lighting. The sites can accommodate six people. The overland sites can accommodate up to 20. The sites are sandy and they’re pretty close together. You can also hear the road so you won’t feel deep in the bush but you are by the river and this is an ideal base to explore the area. You also get to share all the facilities of the main lodge.
Ablution block; laundry service; swimming pool; garden; restaurant & traditional dinners with cultural dance and song performances (can also be arranged on request); dining area; bar; boma; curio and craft shop; braai facilities; Wi-Fi; secure parking
You’re on the Chobe River near the Chobe National Park so you obviously have all that wildlife bounty to enjoy. You can go on boat cruises and game drives and the lodge can help arrange trips for you.
Watch elephants in the river or hippos doing their wallowing thing. Giraffe and antelope come for a drink and you’ll no doubt see a predator or two lurking. The lodge has a small boat which is rather like a mobile hide. Good for photography enthusiasts.
As are the game drives. Impala are everywhere and giraffe tend to wander lots too. As do buffalo.
The Kazungula Ferry that crosses the Chobe River into Zambia is a little over 6 miles from the lodge.
If you want to go Victoria Falls day trips are on offer. They’re only about an hour’s drive away from the Lodge. Stunning, naturally. Lots for adrenaline junkies too. White water rafting, bungee, kayaking and more.
You can also fish, visit a nearby snake park or go to Mowana Golf Course.
