Chobe Bakwena Lodge

Bakwena Lodge is an intimate, privately owned eco-lodge on the banks of the Chobe River. Bakwena has a total of 15 chalets designed and decorated in a manner befitting our environment which offer a cool and comfortable escape.

Chobe Bakwena Lodge

There are two Room Types at Bakwena Lodge. ‘Ten x ‘River-View Chalets’ which are all facing the magnificent Chobe River and Five x ‘Treetop Chalets’ which are elevated 3m above the ground with views of the Treetop canopy.

They offer an inclusive safari option in an area with some of the finest game viewing to be had. Chobe is well known for its predators and has the home of most of Botswana’s estimated 200 000 elephants. Activities are naturally focused on the land and water based safaris, all based in-house, a host of other activities are also on offer from fishing trips to guided bicycle tours or a sundowner cruise to the meeting place of four countries, (the only one in the world). Bakwenas’ excellent guides will endeavour to make your stay in Chobe a highlight of any safari. The lodges’ eco-credentials include the natural swimming pool filtered entirely by plants, their employment policies, food choices, building methods and a host of otherwise unseen ways in which any negatives to the lodges surroundings or environment are addressed.
