Chobe Bakwena Eco Lodge is an eco-luxury retreat on the banks of the Chobe River, located in the friendly town of Kasane right next to Chobe National Park, ideally positioned for the place where Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana meet. This is where you want to go for a truly heart-warming Botswana safari.
The lodge is an oasis with excellent food (you will never forget their home-made bread), comfortable rooms, cosy nooks and stunning views.
Chobe Bakwena Eco Lodge is the only lodge on the Chobe River that was constructed according to eco-principles, with locally sourced materials and without any harmful chemicals.
When in your room, pay extra attention to the carefully hand-selected furniture, all sourced from local craftsmen and vintage stores. Even the curtains are fair trade; they come from Madagascar to create employment there, and are made from local cotton.
Come here to immerse yourself in local culture and enjoy a natural safari in a responsible lodge, oozing with African authenticity.
River View Chalets
All ten of our River View Chalets are nestled in an indigenous riverine forest, overlooking the magnificent Chobe River. Wake up to the sound of a fish eagle and fall asleep to the comforting grunt of a hippo! Relax in the privacy of your own verandah and enjoy the beauty of Africa.
Treat your loved ones to a spacious and secluded family room. Furnished in tasteful minimalism using natural fibres makes this space a refreshing change from the clutter of daily life. An opulent king bed welcomes you with twins in the second room.
A shared bathroom with an indoor and outdoor shower ensures no one is left wanting! Delicate hand sewn Madagascan lace floats through dappled morning light as the Chobe river rolls gently on. The deck is best enjoyed in silent reverie.
Tree Top Chalets
All five of the Treetop Chalets are elevated 3 meters on stilts above ground and wrapped in a Tree Canopy. Lose yourself in a secret world of incandescent light and leaves remembering why a tree house was a childhood dream.
Honey Moon Suite
The Bakwena honeymoon suite is an incentive to take romance to a new level and boldly claim ‘I do!’ Celebrate love in luxury with Chobe charm. Long live the King! A stand alone bath and air conditioning ensure ultimate comfort. Breathe in the good life on your private deck or indulge in a siesta on the delight of a day bed to the heart beat of Africa.
