Muchenje Safari Lodge overview

Muchenje Safari Lodge is a privately owned and run lodge situated at the western boundaries of the famous Chobe National Park, overlooking the Chobe river and floodplains. This area is much quieter than the eastern part of Chobe giving you a more exclusive experience.

The lodge consists of 12 elegant guest rooms, a dining room, a small bar and a swimming pool. There are also viewing decks and platforms and a gift shop. Each en-suite room is exquisitely furnished with an African ambience and the private balconies offer stunning panoramic views over the floodplains.

Activities at Muchenje include game drives into Chobe National Park in open 4x4 vehicles, boat cruises on the Chobe river, guided bush walks and night drives. Guests can also visit nearby villages to learn about the local culture.

Victor Melleney

"Great surroundings with a knowledgeable and attentive staff"

Miriam McKay
"The owner was present while we were there and the managers love it and treat it as home. Managers were lovely. They didnt seem to know it was our honeymoon though (and when owner realised he aranged some sparkling wine for our room) and didn't cater as well for my wheat intolerance - the first night there wasnt much I could eat. We met some lovely people at this camp and saw a pack of rare african wild dogs whihc was a real treat."
Mrs. Judith Taylor
