Chobe Savanna Lodge sits on the Namibian bank of the Chobe River, right at the northern tip of the Chobe National Park. The main emphasis of Chobe Savanna Lodge in the words of camp manager John is to ‘chill down’ and this lodge is definitely geared for that. Relaxing at the lounge bar sipping a cold G&T while watching the game pass by is a fantastic way to start or finish a safari.
Chobe Savannah Lodge - The Details
Set in a classic African savanna environment with sweeping vistas, the focal point of the lodge is a thatched open sided lodge which commands a 270 degree view over the Chobe River and beyond to the Chobe National Park.
Accommodation is in 12 stylish thatched suites with private decks where guests can sit outside and relax. The interiors are tastefully furnished, with a combination bedroom/lounge area and a luxurious bathroom.
As this is a water-based lodge, guests have a choice of aquatic activities. River excursions in small, easily manoeuvrable boats are ideal for close encounters with the wild visitors to the river’s edge. Fishing is also a popular pastime; their catch-and-release fishing trips for Bream or Tiger Fish are a firm favourite with guests of all ages. Those wishing to experience some of the local Namibian traditions will enjoy a cultural village visit to one of the surrounding communities, where one can observe the ancient heritage of the local people.
Chobe Savannah Lodge works perfectly as a combinaiton with both a stay in Victoria Falls as well as other safari lodges in the neighbouring Linyanti area and the Okavango Delta in Botswana as well as other family lodges of a simmilar style in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe.
