The location to Chobe National Park makes this lodge an excellent choice for any traveler. It's a relatively new lodge with excellent amenities. The staff and accommodations are par excellent! The manager, OP, was professional and pleasant and set the example for her entire staff. The kitchen staff prepared delicious menus for me since I do not eat red meat. I really appreciated their kindness.
Obviously, any traveler visits Botswana to engage in animal observation. Every day of the three days I stayed there, I watched antelope munch on the bushes just outside my chalet. What a joy it was to be so close to nature!
I need to compliment Bakwena's guides, especially Boago. Wow! I saw so many animals on this segment of my seven-week visit to Southern Africa. Boago has a sixth sense in anticipating where the animals are and where they will move about. One morning, Boago took me on an early morning independent game drive and we watched 14 lions begin their walk across an open area. After watching them for several minutes, Boago suggested that we move to a different location. I couldn't believe what was happening. Each and every lion sauntered next to our Land Cruiser and finally lay down under the bushes ignoring us as I took photo after photo of these majestic creatures.
Finally, every staff member "went the extra mile" for each traveler. I highly recommend this lodge.
