Thebe River Lodge

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Rooms are neat and comfortable with en suite bathrooms and the campsite is under decent trees next to the river with communal ablutions.

The bar and restaurant attract a convivial mix of locals, overlander groups and individual travellers so you'll never be short of entertainment. The menu won't win awards for originality and this ain't no Relais & Chateaux establishment on the service front but bacon foam and percale sheets are not what you are here for. You are here for the wildlife and on that front Chobe delivers with silver-service aplomb.

Thebe River Lodge offers optional extra activities that bring the magic of Chobe to life: a four-hour game drive into the park with your knowledgeable guide will bring you up close and sometimes too personal with elephants - that's a given - and lions as well as giraffe, zebra, leopard, hyena, wild dog, several large antelope and many other creatures great and small. The boat cruise up the river - take your own drinks and food - will fill in the gaps as the animals are even less perturbed by boats and the birdlife adds a whole extra dimension.

A mobile safari combining a night or even two in a rustic no-frills camp inside the Chobe National Park with the boat cruise and game drive is an absolute must. Especially if staying inside the park at one of the more up-market safari lodges is out of budget.
