My mom, sister, and I just spent a few days at the Garden Lodge in Kasane, Botswana...what an incredibly memorable time we had! The lodge is beautiful, meals are delicious and served "family style" with all the guests eating together, and the atmosphere is inviting. We loved our game driver and river tour host, John...kept us entertained the entire time....

Such a great stay with all the personal touches. Great staff with impecable service and extremely knowlegeable. As a small lodge game cruises and drives not overloaded; we were lucky enough to be just us on a cruise and drive. Meals are great as a 'family' affair sitting with all other guests and some staff. They even surprised us with...

We absolutely loved our stay at the Garden Lodge! A friend of ours who previously stayed at The Garden Lodge recommended it, and we are so glad he did! The lodge is located right on the beautiful Chobe River, an ideal location for river cruise safaris. The staff is extremely accommodating and makes you feel as though you are a...

We found The Garden Lodge after missing the border back to Namibia and were really lucky to get the last family room. We were made to feel so welcome, nothing was too much trouble, service excellent - even a veggie meal with no notice was excellent.

It was an unforgettable time with G.L staff, more new friends and companions than staff hands. The trip was expensive, but surely worthwhile and maybe an experience to repeat in the future, who knows?

Thoroughly enjoyed my three day stay at the Garden Lodge, Chobe National Park and Victoria Falls. Everything was well organized with a friendly knowledgeable staff in a very comfortable lodge setting. Participated in two excellent game drives, one memorable sunset boat ride, and enjoyed the family atmosphere at breakfast and dinner. The day trip to Victoria Falls went without a...

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
