Chobe Game Lodge is a haven of peace and tranquillity inside the Chobe National Park. A quiet spot on one of the many expansive viewing decks, the private jetty or comfortable lounge on the boardwalk is never far away. Each offers a different perspective on the unique wilderness that surrounds the lodge.
Chobe Game Lodge is the only lodge situated within the boundaries of Chobe National Park. Built along the riverbank with spectacular views of the Chobe River and floodplains, this well-established lodge is a prime venue for guests to explore the Chobe National Park. Guests are accommodated in a relaxed and luxurious environment in tune with a timeless Africa. Chobe Game Lodge has forty-eight rooms which are river facing, offering air conditioning and overhead fans, a complimentary mini-bar, en-suite bathrooms and tea and coffee making facilities. All rooms have a private terrace. Other facilities at the lodge include a large swimming pool with terrace, a riverside boma area, a fully equipped conference room, internet lounge, gym, beauty salon, stylish bar with an outside terrace overlooking the Chobe River and a cigar bar with a champion sized billiard table. Chobe Game Lodge also has a reference library with a lounge and therefore offers plenty of areas for you to relax between game drives. Meals are catered for at the terrace restaurant overlooking the Chobe River. Your days will be spent exploring the Chobe National Park in open 4X4 safari vehicles led by professional guides, and boat cruises along the Chobe River.
Chobe Game Lodge was among the first of just a few of Botswana’s properties to be rated fully ecotourism-certified. Tthe vision of being the first electric-powered safari operator became a full-blown reality four years later. In November 2014 ministers, press and industry colleagues from around the world gathered on the banks of the Chobe River for the launch of the first electric game-drive vehicle and electric-powered safari boat in Africa.
The technology being in its infancy and the conversion from diesel to electric a costly exercise – however, the lodge realised that someone in the industry needed to take the lead. The Chobe National Park is an untouched and highly sensitive natural area that needs to be protected and, besides the benefits to the environment of clean, quiet safaris, they make for a far more enjoyable experience in the wilderness for our guests.
Fast forward to early 2017 and the Chobe Game Lodge electric safari fleet made up the majority of safaris. They now have four electric-powered safari boats (three of which are fully solar powered) and four electric vehicles.
