We first visited this place 17 years ago when it was Phil and Gabi's dream under construction. (They even made some of the bricks!) Now we returned to find a popular lodge, full of interesting travellers, with friendly, knowledgeable staff committed to personal service. The...More

Whilst the photos online were a little misleading so our initial impression was not as expected the lodge ended up being a great place to use as a base while in Kasane for our game drive viewings at Chobe. The owners Gabi and Phil were...More

we would like to say thank you for your comment, and are glad you enjoyed being with us. While I don't understand how can feel the premises were a little old after we just renovated the entire lodge including a brand-new thatched roof, we are...More

Had the garden room! so nice and tranquile. And the staff is ever so hospitable and competent. Been there the second time and definitely come back. But they are so often booken out! Best are the rooms with a garden view on the first floor

We just LOVED staying here. The lodge is a quiet oasis - and well run, but the real draw is the fantastic river trips along the Chobe River. You see LOADS of animals, and the guides are just great at finding things. Our guide found...More

We stayed at the Garden Lodge for 3 nights in June 2017. We had booked our journey through Compass Odyssey, and they hooked us up with the Garden Lodge. It is a great location just outside of Chobe National Park, and they have daily visitors...More

About
Description
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. More 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. Less
