In the mid 70's I was working in RSA for a couple of years but took my late wife up to Victoria Falls and then to the lodge. Obviously things may have changed but from the recent reviews published here it appears that the lodge has got even better because when we visited it was superb, friendly staff and fellow guests, fantastic game drives and boat cruises and great food,
Still check out the movies and photographs and the room key ( room 204 ) hangs on my wall. The wife found it in her luggage when we returned to the UK.
I would recommend that anyone thinking of going to Africa who likes staying in beautiful hotels but also wishes to see some magnificent views of wild life should put Chobe Game Lodge at the top of the list.
Even Richard Burton and Liz Taylor stayed there when they married for the second time.
