We spent two nights at the lodge, took in two river cruises and two drive safaris. The river cruises were enjoyable with a knowledgable crew, biggest drawback was the number of vessels out, you could have tied a very short rope between them and had the lead boat pull you all. Made for a difficult time getting pictures without other...

I was in Kasane on a business trip and i was staying at Chobe Marina Lodge. Chobe Marina Lodge is perfectly situated along Chobe river. The room was so clean. The people at front desk were very friendly and also extremely helpful. The cleaner ensured that my room was clean on a daily basis. Wow the room was very comfortable....

The rooms were adequate. The outstanding offering was the location, the quality of the game drive vehicles and the drivers/spotters. The restaurant was a bit hectic with several tour groups, but our group had it's own reserved tables which helped tremendously.

Well, what can I say. This is a fantastic place to stay in Botswana right on the banks of the Chobe river with lots of wildlife very near. Baboons and warthogs running round the lodges which are very entertaining. You must go on early morning game drives and evening river cruises here- they are a must! The variety of wildlife...

We had a great experience during the 2 days we spent at the Lodge. The location was superb and the premises very inviting. The food was delicious. We partook of the boat ride on the Chobe River and several game drives. The wildlife was abundant- especially elephants. We highly recommend the Lodge.
