The Garden Lodge
The lodge has eight bedrooms each with its own bathroom and private verandah overlooking with view onto the Chobe River. The combination of unlimited water and constant sunshine allows hibiscus, frangipani, bougainvillea, banana and paw paw to grow in profusion. Guests love the garden and the prolific birds attracted to the flowers and fruits. The lounge and dining room are furnished in teak and wicker. The upstairs bar overlooks the Chobe River and also known as the map room due to the large number of maps hung on the walls.
Activities offered here revolve around game viewing by vehicle and boat into The Chobe National Park. The park can get quite busy due to high numbers of visitors from neighboring countries and we therefore preferably suggest the boat safaris. This is also a great fishing area for the experienced as well as the new comer and the Chobe River is home to the famed tiger fish. The lodge will supply all the tackle needed to catch these fish, but respectfully request guests to practice catch & release.
If you seek an insight to tribal life we suggest a mokoro (a traditional dugout canoe) trip to villages in Namibia, across the river. Guides will take you from Botswana to Namibia by mokoro and then on foot through the villages.
The Garden Lodge can be booked on an all-inclusive basis with accommodation and all meals or on a room only basis. Children of all ages are welcome here.
Rates are seasonal from $210-$410 per person per night sharing.
