The highlight of our stay was definitely the boat safari on the Chobe River, so many animals and birds to see while cruising down the river, picnic lunch while watching a bloat of hippo's both in and out of the water. Love the fact that staff joined us for meals which were lovely. Rooms are comfortable and clean, all with...

Fantastic safari lodge with friendly and informative staff. Guests eat together with the host which is great. the Safari guides were very knowledgeable and great at tracking the wild animals and reading the safety of their behaviours. The trip was made all the more special by 50 or so Baboons jumping on our grass roof at 6.30 one morning.......certainly added...

This place is perfect to spend some nights on your Holiday in Botswana. The view is amazing (especially with a Gin Tonic), the food is good and the rooms are nice and clean. We have experienced great hospitality and had great fun with the crew. The knowledge and passion of the game drivers is something we won't forget. (and that...

A lovely way to begin your safari experience. Staff very welcoming. Shadow, the bar man, goes way beyond to please. Our guide was Rambo and we were amazed at all he knew and what he could do. The all day trip is a bit too long. We were wore out. Time to relax in the main lodge IS what everyone...

This was our first safari but hoping it won't be our last! Muchenje is a lovely lodge just outside the Chobe National Park. The rooms (individual wooden lodges) are rustic but very comfortable, we had a big comfy bed and huge shower, our veranda overlooked the flood plain (i think they all do) and we could have sat and watched...

This was our 2nd safari and we are pleased that we choose Chobe and Muchenje Safari Lodge, we stayed for 4 nights (3 is probably the right number of nights). Robert, Joy, Rambo, and the rest of the staff made us feel very welcomed. We saw herds of Elephants, Giraffe, Buffalo, Loins, lots of birds etc. and have hundreds of...

I stayed here in late September with a friend, we were two women (~30 and 40 yrs.) traveling for around 19 days. This was our last safari stop before Cape Town and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We spent three nights. Arriving at the end of lunch we were able to join a couple for an afternoon drive before happy hour,...

Going on a safari trip was my very first holiday dream; the anticipation and excitement was so great that I could hardly contain myself! After a couple of days at the magnificent Victoria falls we arrived at Muchenje lodge and I couldn't have been more impressed by the welcome, the beauty of the lodge and the setting. We stayed in...
