We had a 3 night stay at Muchenje in December. An old fashioned style lodge with a very nice communal area, bar, pool etc. The rooms were tastefully done and close to the lodge, rather than luxurious. The Game drives were excellent, and the guides very good at helping us spot plenty of wildlife, despite it being low season. The advantage of this time of year is the greenery and less crowding. The full day trip on the river Chobe was blissful, wi plentiful sightings of elephant, croc, hippo, sable antelope and numerous birds. for a first time safari, I was not disappointed. Our guide also correctly anticipated the likelihood of a lion hunting and killing a zebra, which unfolded in front of our eyes. horrific and awe inspiring at the same time. Food at the lodge also excellent. Small warning, if you don't like communal eating and prefer quiet contemplation, looking out over the scenery, you may not like this aspect so much.
