Muchenje Safari Lodge in the Chobe NP
Muchenje Safari Lodge bordering the Chobe National Park, is set on an escarpment edge and has been designed to take full advantage of the breathtaking views over the Caprivi Strip. The Chobe National Park, only an hour by road from the Victoria Falls, is on Botswana’s northern border and lies on the banks of the Chobe River just above its confluence with the Zambezi. Chobe, 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 mopani woodlands, with scattered pans and water holes in the south. Muchenje is the only lodge to be found in this area, offering a unique wilderness experience and uninhabited game viewing.

The ten twin-bedded thatched chalets, all with en-suite 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 thatched main lodge includes a dining area, lounge, bar, reception, shop and game viewing platform overlooking the waterhole.
