Chobe Bakwena Lodge


Part of the Botswana Safari & African Safari Collection

Welcome to Bakwena Lodge, an eco-luxury retreat on the banks of the Chobe River. Botswana is safari country and Bakwena is ideally positioned - surrounded by the Chobe National Park and forest reserve, some 90km’s from Victoria Falls and Livingstone, 300 km’s West of the Okavango Delta and North of the Makgadigadi Salt pans. Activities include game drives or river cruises in the Chobe, fishing trips, bird watching, nature walks, cultural tours and visiting Impalila Island with its giant baobabs. Bakwena Lodge comprises 10 rondavel style chalets, 2 of which are family units, all situated under the shady canopy of Acacia trees, each site has been selected for its river view and is surrounded by indigenous riverine bush. Built around both ecological and traditional African principles, each chalet offers laid-back luxury with its own raised deck overlooking the river. Built-in daybeds offer ample opportunity to absorb the changing moods of the Chobe. Each chalet has an interior bathroom opening onto an outside garden with an outside shower – to shower under an African night sky surrounded by the sounds of the bush is a must-do experience that cleanses and energizes both body and soul.

Whether you have come to unwind or to have a safari adventure, Chobe Bakwena is your destination.
