The Old House is situated in Kasane, adjacent to the Chobe River. The guesthouse is conveniently located within walking distance to all shops and a 10 minute boat/ car ride to the entrance of the Chobe National Park. The Old House has a total of 9 rooms with 3 twin rooms, 3 double rooms, 2 family rooms and a loft room, all of which are en–suite. Guests can enjoy the lodges’ swimming pool and gift shop. The Old house offers a range of activities; Vic Falls Day Trip, sunset cruises, boat cruises, game drives, fishing and canoe trips.

This property is located in the small but thriving town of Kasane, where many bigger hotels are located along the Chobe River banks.  Entry to Chobe National Park for game drives is via Sedudu Gate ten to fifteen minutes drive from town.  For Chobe River cruises, boats depart directly from town.  Although wildlife often passes through Kasane (most usually warthogs and the odd elephant) a typical bush experience is not on offer here.  Instead you’ll get all the comforts of civilization with easy access to the bush.

The Chobe Riverfront is an elephant mecca; home to the largest density of African elephants in the world. Travel here during winter and you’ll fast run out of fingers and toes while you count them drinking at the riverbanks and socialising out on the floodplains. Thanks to its ease of access from Victoria Falls, the Chobe Riverfront is the busiest part of Botswana (though still a much quieter affair than most South or East African safaris). What Chobe lacks in solitude during the busier months, it more than makes up for with quality game viewing. Chobe will leave you feeling tiny as giant elephant bulls stroll up next to your vehicle or snorkel alongside your boat. It will make you feel lost as hundreds of hippos and buffaloes crowd you out on the floodplains. It will put your heart in your throat as prides of lions stalk antelopes by the water’s edge, and it will leave you alone with your thoughts while the classic red sunsets melt over the river to a soundtrack of whistling fish eagles. Chobe is not just a great introduction to Botswana. It also makes a rewarding repeat journey once you’ve ticked off the big stuff. It’s a place to search for the rare sable antelope, to spot that gem from the birders’ bucket list and to explore the remoter corners. Where you stay in Chobe makes a huge difference to your safari experience. The most affordable options are at bigger hotels in a town setting where you’ll share your game drives with a few more vehicles. On the more exclusive end, stay in a wilder area in or around the park, listen to the sounds of the bush at night and get a head start on accessing the park for activities.
