New Rooms at Chobe Safari Lodge


Botswana's best heritage stay, Chobe Safari Lodge, has a freshly renovated wing of suites and enhanced activities.

Travellers seeking a classic African safari experience have long looked to Chobe Safari Lodge, which has hosted adventurers for over decades, and has undergone meticulous renovations to deliver an even more elegant and immersive experience.



The newly refurbished Safari Rooms pay homage to Chobe Safari Lodge's 60-year history as the first lodging in Kasane and its privileged proximity to the Chobe National Park.

Every generously proportioned room was designed with the utmost attention to detail, featuring elegant furnishings, plush bedding, and spacious bathrooms.


Honouring The Chobe Safari Lodge story

Archival documents and historical photographs celebrate a cherished legacy, striking basketry honours Botswana's local artistry, and gorgeous light spills into the suites reflected off the rippling Chobe River. Classic Zambezi teak furnishings have been revitalised with the environment in mind, and brass and wood seams have been lovingly laid into the floors as a nod to the storied Serondela Sawmill ruins inside the Chobe National Park.

Each Safari Room has a romantic ball-and-claw bath and walk-in shower, plus modern perks such as upgraded air conditioning and plug points, Wi-Fi, satellite TV, a coffee machine, and a tranquil verandah to sip it on. The highlight of these rooms remains their spectacular views of the Chobe River and lush grounds.
