The only permanent game lodge situated within the famous Chobe National Park, Chobe Game Lodge is Botswana’s premier venue and perfect place from which to explore Chobe National Park and the Chobe River. This five-star lodge under the Desert & Delta collection is fully eco-tourism certified by Botswana Tourism Association. Chobe Game Lodge has a storied celebrity history. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton tied the knot along the banks of Chobe River in the late 1970’s. It has played host to British and European royalty, rugby players, and Hollywood celebrities throughout the years.
Chobe River comes from the Angola Highlands and supports a huge volume of wildlife. A major highlight of safaris at Chobe Game Lodge is seeing the “swimming” elephants. Botswana is ultimately a water safari destination. At Chobe Game Lodge, guests can go out on fully solar-powered boats for a sunrise or sunset cruise along the Chobe River, to see major herds of elephant drink, bath, and swim in the river.
Chobe Game Lodge can accommodate up to 94 people in total luxury. Each of the 44 rooms at the lodge are river-facing and air-conditioned, featuring overhead fans, complimentary mini bar, en-suite bathrooms, and a private terrace. For those guests who desire the ultimate in exclusivity, the lodge has four river-view suites, each with their own plunge pool and separate lounge area.
