Bronween is a great ambassador for Botswana and the Chobe area. We were lucky to be upgraded to a cottage at no extra cost.The complex is very tidy and has an impressive fruit and veggie patch with an equally impressive fence to keep the local wildlife out.

This property is a perfect choice for someone who looking for an midrange option. The rooms are spacious, with a deck in the front and a backyard area with BBQ in the back. Kitchen, tv, great AC and wifi too. There's a market and restaurants close by and the hotel can arrange any activity you would like to do. Your...

The first thing that struck me was the fresh buffalo spoor on the path leading to the river viewing platform! The cottages are nicely set out and well maintained, and everything worked. If you don't want to cook for yourself, there are several establishments close enough to walk to (don't worry about the buffalo - nobody else seems to!). The...

Kasane is an expensive tourist resort, so it's no so easy to find good value for money options. Chobe river cottages are the only option I have found so far. The rooms can sleep four, although for adults, the couch might prove to be a challenge. The kitchen is fully equipped, and there is also a braai. Very friendly and...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are very pleased to say that we have replaced all the sleeper couches with god quality firm ones so you will get a much better nights rest on them when you visit again. Kind Regards Trish

Not a lot of choice in Kasane at a reasonable price, so not too bad for the money. Bit disappointed that the two cooker rings were not man enough to boil an egg. If you were planning on cooking a meal it would be very difficult.

We stayed only one night, but our experience was great anyway. I contacted the cottages before our trip and then have been in contact with Boitumelo, who was very helpful. They work with local tour companies and were able to arrange our transfer from Victoria Falls and a Sunset boat tour. They also called taxi for us to get us...

Thank you for your review and all your constructive advice. We have taken it on board and our cleaning staff have instructions to only go into the rooms of guests leaving at 10.00am. I will take up the issue of an overcrowded boat with our supplier. Private boat cruises are an option but if you are only 2 people it...

We were so happy to see the Chobe River Cottages were even more lovely than their pictures. They have all the units separated by beautiful gardens created for privacy and also to attract the varied bird life. The pool was larger than expected and even deep on one side. The area outside the gate is watered to attract birds and...

How very kind of you to write that the cottages exceeded expectations. I landscaped the gardens to create privacy and give the whole a tropical ambience. At this time of the year, when we are sitting at about 45deg C at midday, they are a welcome and cool respite. Kind Regards Trish

We stayed for 3 nights as we wanted to have something different from the luxury camps we had been staying at in the Okavango Delta. Chobe River Cottages were perfect for this.

Good Morning, Thank you for the review and for thinking of adding that the kitchen was well equipped and that we are central to everything one needs in town. We appreciate your comment and hope you come back soon.

The place has a few independent villas. Villas are very well equipped with AC and kitchen in particular which might be convenient are there is no restaurant. However, it is very close from city center (2min walk) where you can find restaurants and a supermarket. Owner is super nice and helpful, including to book tours in the park.
