Muchenje Safari Lodge enjoys a unique position to the west of Botswana’s famed Chobe National Park. Muchenje sits on an escarpment with wonderful views of the Chobe River, and Namibia’s Caprivi Strip and seasonal flood plains. Unusual for a Botswana Lodge, Muchenje is owner run and managed, which allows for a more personalised style of hospitality. Muchenje Safari Lodge’s position means that it is far away from the bustle in Kasane, and guests enjoy extensive game drives and boat trips in a rarely-visited section of the Chobe National Park. In addition, as the Lodge is located in the Chobe Forest Reserve, game walks and night drives are also available, which add immeasurably to the wildlife experience. The lodge is easily accessed from Kasane, Victoria Falls and Livingstone,
The main Lodge area is extensive and has been built to allow for excellent vistas, comfort and charm. Guests can relax in its many quiet areas: from the viewing platforms and decks to the dining area and bar. Close by is the swimming pool, complete with deck and more excellent views – where better to relax in the afternoon, and soak up the sun and atmosphere? Guests can therefore enjoy game viewing from the convenience of their private veranda, the pool deck or one of the viewing decks.
The lodge has just 11 guest rooms giving an exclusive feel to the property. Accommodation is in newly refurbished thatched safari bungalows, each being beautifully appointed and each with its own unique view of the Chobe River. The bathroom is a good size with a shower, toilet and his/ hers hand-basins. Each bungalow has a ceiling fan, wardrobe, electric safe and writing table. You also have a private, shaded veranda, from which to take in the sights and sounds. There is one family bungalow, which accommodates 4 guests. There is a double bed and full bathroom downstairs, and a loft area with 2 single beds upstairs. This unit also works well for a small group of friends travelling together.
