I stayed in the Chobe Safari Lodge for two nights with my family at the beginning of June. We travelled six hours from Kampala and after a dusty and very bumpy journey we felt we had arrived in paradise. On arrival we were offered freshly squeezed orange juice and cold flannels which was very welcome. The staff on reception were... More

My husband and I stayed here over night on our way from Gulu to Kampala. It was a luxurious lodge with great views, comfortable rooms, good food and friendly efficient staff. The only draw back for us was that weekend in April the Lodge was preparing for some business man's wedding which was very disruptive. We booked the lodge for... More

We stayed at Cresta Mowana the first night (just up the road) and liked Chobe Safari Lodge much better and it was much more affordable. The rooms were bigger and nicer. I liked the grounds better too, a bar area with a great view and a nice pool and big reception area with lots of couches to hang out on... More

Our party of 11 (including 5 kids) stayed one night at Chobe Safari Lodge last week. We had three triple rooms in the hotel. On arrival we were struck by the amazing view from the reception area. The lodge overlooks a picturesque Nile River, and is build into the side of a ridge. This meant up/down hiking to and from... More

We stayed there for one night only but all of us wanted to add another one. due to car issues we had to leave sooner than we wanted. a great place, most likely on of the best on this planet. the pools are huge and well maintained. great jumps from the 2nd into the first pool. so we'll definitely go...

We've been to Chobe Safari Lodge a few times now and it's always been very good, but we've been delighted to see the further improvements under new General Manager George since he joined 8 months ago. The staff are particularly motivated, happy, professional and courteous. It feels like an ideal team has been assembled, each person effective in their role,... More

Quite a Beautiful Lodge. Wonderful People and Lovely Rooms. Was there with my family. The Hippos, The Primates, The warthogs freely roaming at the river banks and into the Facility compound is just special but a little scary when with the family. We loved it, the Kids especially. The Game Drive,The Falls and all the activities just make the place... More

We drove to Chobe in mid-October of 2014. All the way there our driver told us delightedly how beautiful Chobe was. He said it was his favorite place in Uganda. We honestly wondered how it could live up to the hype. But when we got there, we understood. The beauty and the peace at Chobe slips into your soul and... More
