We felt right at home :) the rooms were very spacious and the staff we all very friendly. Not for one second did it feel like we were staying in a lodge but like we were at home. We did the boat cruise and our guide made it absolutely worth it. Will definitely go back there again and will recommend...

If you are looking for a boutique lodge that will cater to your needs, you need to look no further. There are only 8 unique rooms here and they offer boat and drive safari's everyday with their staff.

This is a very nice place to stay on a holiday. Accommodation is excellent, service is very good, the food is superb and the people are very friendly. The hotel is located very close to the river and it has a good view from the hotel.

We were a family of four adults, and I personally had no expectations:,that's how I always travel. But, man, this place is great! Good food, good service, great location and a very warm atmosphere. Rooms with air conditioner is a delight when you arrive from your game viewing under 40 C degrees of heat. Do not hesitate, try it.

We recently stayed two nights at the garden lodge and really enjoyed it. The atmosphere is cozy. Both the owners as well as the rest of the staff welcome you and treat you as were you a good friend. We quite enjoyed chatting with them and the other guests at a big table during the meals. The food was very...

So well looked after. A beautiful small lodge where everyone is friendly and caring. We had a night here which included a delightful evening river cruise and morning game drive and we're sorry not to have stayed longer.

I stayed at The Garden Lodge with friends who were visiting from U.K. We had a very friendly welcome from Emily. The lodge looked a bit dated. I usually stay at The Old House, next door, which was fully booked so I was probably unfairly comparing it. We stayed in two of the upstairs rooms which were very comfortable and...

Dear Ms Morphy-Morris, Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor. I am really very sorry that you felt slighted by not being spoken to myself. We always make a point of having breakfast at the lodge and joining guests for a drink in the evening, so that we can talk to each guest individually. We actually had old friends from...

Stayed 2 nights at the end of a 2 week trip - this lodge is warm and friendly. While not super luxurious, it makes up for that with the warm and caring staff, and superb food. We ate kudu stew which was incredible! The views on the river are spectacular. The rooms are clean, but not new. Saw amazing wildlife...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We built The Garden Lodge with the specific intention of offering personal service to a small number of guests. There are many fine lodges in the area, however most have over 100 beds, we have 22. The lodge has eight bedrooms (4 standard double/twin bed rooms, 3 family rooms with 4 beds each and 1 smaller double/twin room. ). All rooms with own bathrooms and private verandahs overlooking the Chobe River.We are truly a garden lodge. 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. ... more   less
