Your Remote Chobe River Safari Awaits!Find Out More
IntroductionSet on the banks of the Chobe River overlooking Botswana’s famed Chobe National Park, Chobe Savanna Lodge is the perfect destination from which to experience the thrill of a river based photographic safari in the home of Africa’s highest elephant population. Chobe Savanna Lodge is a small and intimate luxury camp offering homely safaris with only twelve spacious chalets. The lodges unique location offers remarkable views over the Chobe National Park from several vantage points. Enjoy a private dinner on the raised deck or soak up quality time with friends and family under a blanket of stars while sitting around the fire in front of the lodge.
We stayed 2 nights in the lodge and have experienced all the comfort and a great hospitality from Anne Marie and team. The transfer from Kasane by boat ( ca 1,5 h) crossing to immigration posts, and enjoying a fascinating wildlife and unforgettable atmosphere along the Chobe river, are just some of the few experiences to enjoy.
We booked four lodges in Namibia/Botswana for our once-in-a-lifetime safari holiday, and the Chobe Savanna Lodge was the first and best of the four – all were terrific, but Chobe was outstanding. On the boat ride from Kasane to the lodge (what a way to arrive!) we had to wait for elephants to swim across the river in front of us – I could have died happy. And during our three days we saw many more elephants, plus hippos, buffaloes, crocodiles, baboons and the most gorgeous birds. Our guide – Felix – was extremely knowledgeable and had the perfect balance of telling us things without lecturing, and staying quiet to let us enjoy the tranquillity of the location.
The Chobe Savanna Lodge was the first leg of our two week Safari Photography vacation. We were a large group of 8 amateur but serious photographers hoping to have a good time but also capture some of the great wildlife around Chobe. Our experience spoiled us for the rest of the trip. We stayed there 3 days and 2 nights and did two boat outings each day. Andre, Anne Marie and their staff treated us like royalty.
Our guide was Divine. He was great! We told him we wanted to see everything and anything and he showed us just that! Every time we went out on the boat we saw something different, exciting and new! The evening cruises were my favourite as the sunset was different every time. Everyday we saw elephants but each time we saw them they were interacting and doing different behaviours. We saw 100 elephants one afternoon, a troop of 80 baboons, impala, hippos, crocodiles, porcupine, banded mongoose, birds of all kinds (herons, egret, kingfishers).
