Our 3 night stay in late March at Muchenje was a wonderful experience. Not only did we see lots of wildlife but the staff could not have been more welcoming. Our hosts, Joy and Robert, were 2 of the nicest and most interesting people we have had the pleasure of meeting!! They really make the place extra special... the rest of the staff was great as well. From the welcoming smiles, cool towel, and cold drink the whole experience was most memorable. Other guests commented that it was the best of 8 lodges they had tried over the years. The boat safari was awesome; hundreds of elephants, a lot of them cavorting in the river...The 'sundowners' by the water, the enthusiastic guides, lively conversations over appetizers and drinks, delicious meals and impeccable individual lodgings were awesome! Mosquito nets, repellant and spray are provided although we only noticed a few mosquitos outside at night. Each chalet is serviced daily, robes provided. Bathrooms are lovely; the double sinks even have an elephant motif. The pool gets the occasional visit from a friendly elephant and there is a big fire pit for after dinner drinks and conversation, as well as a watering hole to watch.
What is really great is that Chobe is an unfenced park, so that you are seeing the animals in a more natural setting than the fenced game reserves. the entire experience was truly a pleasure.More
