We stayed in the 'standard' tents for one night on a 16-day Uganda safari. Nothing standard about them--luxurious canvas safari tents overlooking a beautiful, island dotted stretch of rapids on the Nile. We wished we had stayed longer. The main building was lovely, service personable and attentive, food good (but not gourmet). Animal stars here are hippos and waterfowl. If... More

Perfect location, beautiful setting with amazing sun-sets. The pool area is great and the rooms were satisfactory - not perfect. We had a family suite, but no fridge and we were not given drinking water - which could only be bought at the bar/restaurant. Service was not consistently good - for a "luxury" hotel. The food was average and the... More

wonderful location, not too far from KLA, spectacular pools. as mentioned by others, the amount of animals to see is not too high. Beside that, if you want to go to Murchinson Falls it's a long drive...

I have been working in Uganda for nearly a year, when I travel I usually stay in budget hotels ..... being able to watch hippo, warthog, water buffalo & various birds while having a 4 course lunch was a lovely touch of luxury that I have missed. The service was polite, attentive but not overpowering except on one minor occasion... More

Wonderful location!! Spectacular pool!!! Hippos and Baboons in close close proximity! Had a great time with the family, we all had an amazing time! Not to mention the free cocktails every evening! Helpful staff but the rangers need a bit more assistance on animal location in the bush (they tried!!) Lol! Lovely holiday all round!

We had another great 2 night stay here last weekend. We saw an elephant push a tree over in the grounds....a buffalo and elephant walk past the restaurant at night. Although a bit gruesome we also saw crocodiles eating a dead hippo!

An amazon view that intoxicates you. We got there around noon and the staff was very pleasant until we got to the reception part. It's my believe that there was a big misunderstanding between what we were told when we made the reservations by phone and what actually was offered. The reception person perhaps was not at liberty to make... More

The location of Chobe Safari Lodge is probably its prime asset. The view is breathtaking with an abundance of wild life. My best moments included having breakfast on the terrace while watching the hippos in the river below and the elephants and buffaloes that often visited the compound. and sleeping and waking up to the sounds of the river Nile...

As others have said, the property and its location are outstanding, and totally unexpected in this fairly isolated area of Uganda. The view of the Nile from the our room, the lobby, the terraces and the restaurant are outstanding. We thought the food was very good, and we had a nice discussion about Uganda with the manager. I had a... More
