Certificate of Excellence
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.

This small lodge is very attentive to its guests. It is located right on the on the Chobe river and right on the hotel property, I saw two hippos, as well as wart hogs and baboons. Dinners are served family style with a set menu....More
