Enjoyed that it was a smaller place, set in a beautiful location on the river and away from the big “mass market lodges.” Everyone gets a “cabin.” Staff is very friendly and helpful. Game drives and river cruises were delightful, informative and packed with animals. Downside: breakfast usually the same, Internet very poor, and the power frequently goes out for 1-3 hours.

Wonderful family Safari - would stay again
We stayed at the Lodge for 3 nights in a family room for 3 adults. We struggled to find the location, however once we arrived the hospitality was wonderful. We were shown around the complex, which consists of a restaurant, bar, open lounge area and swimming pool. The room itself was a good size with ample space. The cleanliness was good and the decor good for the location. The bathroom could do with some modernisation, especially the shower tap. The breakfast was always a great start to the day with plenty of Continental and hot food options. The evenings meals were from set menus that changed every night, these were a good portion and always great quality. The pool area had lots of space to lounge around, even when the hotel was full. Again, there was always staff nearby to assist with any needs. We also appreciated the free ironing service. The morning game safari organised by the hotel was lovely (although cold/windy in the vehicle due to the nature of the very large safari vehicle) and we saw some amazing animals, including lots of Elephant, Zebra, Giraffe, Lion. However, this is dependent on the day you visit the Chobe Park, I guess we were lucky to see Lions (as it was off/wet season). The transfers to Livingstone airport were organised by the hotel for $60 pp (prices can vary - check with hotel), again a good journey and ample of space in the vehicle. The only issue was on checkout when different $ conversion rates were applied but rectified after I identified.
