Muchenje Safari Lodge (Chobe
National Park) Botswana
Bordering the Chobe National Park, Muchenje Safari Lodge
is set on an escarpment edge, and has been designed to take
full advantage of the breathtaking views over the Caprivi
Muchenje Safari Lodge is located in the Forrest Reserve,
3 km. from the Chobe National Park, and under 2 hours drive
from Victoria Falls. The camp lies on the Chobe River, just
above its confluence with the Zambezi. (Muchenje is a 45
minute drive from Kasane)
This is the only private lodge in this area, and as such
is spoiled with sole use of this section of the Chobe
National Park. Unique prolific game experiences are to be
found without the masses and commercialism that inhibit
lodges around Kasane.
Chobe is famous for its large elephant and buffalo herds,
has vegetation that ranges from the dense riverine and grass
floodplains of the north to teak forests and mopane
woodlands, with scattered pans and waterholes in the south.
Muchenje accommodates only twenty guests in intimate
exclusivity. The 10 twin-bedded thatched chalets, all with
ensuite facilities, are sited on the escarpment edge all
with their own balcony and unique view.
Each chalet is exquisitely furnished and great care has
been taken to create a true African ambience.
The main thatched lodge includes a dining area, lunge,
bar and reception, shop and game viewing platform
overlooking the waterhole.
The lodge's swimming pool, built amongst natural rock
formations, takes full advantage of the African vista and
provides a tranquil setting for guests to relax during the
heat of the day.

New :- Boat Activity - This is an additional
activity and will not take the place of our full day
excursion and boat trip on the Eastern side of the park,
however, it will give our guests an additional option to get
onto the river. The new jetty is just upstream from the
Ihaha campsite and takes about an hour to get to from the
lodge. Depending on the water levels we enjoy half day
activities from the jetty with bush breakfasts and other
great Muchenje Magic Moments.
