We stayed a few nights at the Garden Lodge and really enjoyed the whole experience. The staff were so friendly and attentive. The rooms were clean but had a curtain across separating the bathroom from bedroom (not ideal if your the shy type) also the food is very basic and would not be to everyone's taste, but obviously being in the bush one could not expect too much. It was quite expensive for what it was. However, apart from that all the wildlife more than made up for it. The safaris excellent, the grounds immaculate with the most beautiful birds flying around. A Really wonderful place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We built The Garden Lodge with the specific intention of offering personal service to a small number of guests. There are many fine lodges in the area, however most have over 100 beds, we have 22. The lodge has eight bedrooms (4 standard double/twin bed rooms, 3 family rooms with 4 beds each and 1 smaller double/twin room. ). All rooms with own bathrooms and private verandahs overlooking the Chobe River.We are truly a garden lodge. The combination of unlimited water and constant sunshine allows hibiscus, frangipani, bougainvillea, banana and paw paw to grow in profusion. Guests love the garden and the prolific birds attracted to the flowers and fruits. ... more less
