The Old House

Chobe & the North

The Old House overview

Guests staying at the Old House in Kasane, will find themselves in a relaxing friendly environment overlooking the calm waters of the Chobe River. You're within walking distance of town and a 10 minute boat cruise from the entrance to the famous Chobe National Park - it's a perfect setting.

There are 10 rooms at the Old House, made up of twins, doubles and family rooms. All the rooms have air-conditioning, a hot drinks station, electronic safe, mozzie nets over the beds and en-suite bathrooms. Each room is different from the next; all are light, bright and comfortably furnished. The finishes in each room are unique with quirky touches such as the hand-painted headboards which have been painted by the in-house artist. 

The restaurant has something for everyone and has a reputation for serving the best pizzas in town. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served and there's always a board with daily specials and scrumptious desserts. The bar is a popular place for spending a couple of hours of an evening, chatting to other guests as you enjoy a thirst-quenching cold drink.

Mrs. Elaine Honigmann

"Overall, The Old House was acceptable. the rooms were fine- the others' room was small but we got a family room. Service was a bit hit and miss, especially around meals - we had to wait over 50 minutes from ordering to receiving food one evening. We mentioned it to management and it improved a little the following evening."
