Ideally situated on the banks of the lower Chobe River in the Kasane region of northern Botswana. Chobe National Park is within close proximity and the mighty Victoria Falls is a mere one-hour drive away, depending on border formalities.

Set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, River View Lodge offers ten tastefully appointed, fully air conditioned en-suite chalets. Accommodation consist of double rooms, twin rooms and family rooms. All rooms have air conditioning and a veranda to relax. The wing housing the smaller twin rooms include two single beds, and despite not having a riverview, overlooks the beautiful garden.

Family chalets are each uniquely designed with spacious en-suite bathroom, comfy king-size bed, and additional 1-2 single beds.

With charming public spaces including a restaurant, lounge, bar area and swimming pool all overlooking the majestic Chobe River, River View Lodge is the perfect retreat to relax and unwind after exploring the beautiful surroundings of Chobe.

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 a typical bush experience is not on offer here.  Instead you’ll get all the comforts of civilization with easy access to the bush.

Airport transfer time: 20 minutes from Kasane airport

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.
