We stayed three days at Muchenje and what a three days they turned out to be. From the moment we stepped foot in the door Joy made us feel exceedingly welcome, in fact the drive from the airport with Kebelo (KB) who was to be our main guide was exceptional. The lodge is a wonderful place in all aspects, rooms are clean, with delightful views into Namibia, they are light and airy, the dinning area is very well maintained and the food is wonderful. Eating together with Robert, Joy and the other guests turned into a friendly and sociable experience. The days are quite long discovering the Park but this is what we went for. KB was an exceptionally talented man who was well informed on all aspects of the wild life and the diverse nature of Chobe. In addition, his tracking abilities were first class. Always in control, he knew when to go in close to the animals and when to leave well alone. We got up close to some Lions on a two occasions, firstly a couple of males and a female, followed later in the day by a pride of females and their offspring. On the visit to the local school we encountered a Spitting Cobra in the school reception. KB in his usual calm manner, dealt with the matter by removing the snake from the building. We encountered many animals in the three days which is why we returned to Africa. To conclude, go Muchenje you will not be disappointed.
