Chobe Safari Lodge Kasane
is located in the town of Kasane
in northern Botswana
One should perhaps not have too high an expectation of a lodge which claims that "the animals don't care how much you spend to see them".
This huge sprawling place in the town of Kasane is a bit of an institution. There is a wide range of accommodation from camping to pretty decent rooms, plus a huge range of facilities from boat cruises to squash courts.
Activities are centred on vehicle safari and motorboat safari, which are operated in the adjacent Chobe Northern Waterfront
area, where the wildlife viewing can be prodigious during the Jun/Oct dry season.
On the downside, this area experiences some of the worst safari traffic in Africa. The volume of vehicles lined up to get into the reserve each morning in high season can be very depressing and the limited road network does little to disperse vehicles. The quality of the sightings can therefore be exceedingly poor.
It is a similar story out on the river, where the wonderful experience of watching families of elephants snorkelling through the water is often ruined by the uncontrolled motorboat traffic that emerges from Kasane.SeasonsPricesTrips
