DOWN ♥ TO ♥ EARTH SAFARI COMFORT
Muchenje Safari Lodge’s position on an escarpment of the Chobe River means that it commands exceptional views. 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.
Muchenje offers 11 newly refurbished thatched Safari bungalows, each being beautifully appointed having its own unique view of the Chobe.
The bathroom is a good size with shower, toilet and his/ hers hand-basins. Each Safari Suite 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.
Of the 11 Safari rooms, 1 is a family unit, and accommodates four 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.
The main building
The main Lodge area is extensive, and has been built to allow for excellent vistas, comfort and charm. Guests can relax in and its many quiet areas; from the viewing platforms and decks, the dining area and bar. Retail therapy is also at hand, at the curio shop.
Chobe National Park is home to four of the Big Five; Chobe is understandably famous for its elephant herds – and it is not uncommon to see hundreds of these magnificent animals on the flood plains at any one time.
Muchenje’s location means that you get to explore a huge section of the Chobe National Park and its River frontage, away from the busier areas to the east. If you ever tire of the elephants, there are some other wonderful wildlife viewing opportunities on offer, not least of which are the vast herds of Cape Buffalo… then there is the good lion population, elusive leopards and the beautiful African wild dogs.
Even after returning the Lodge after your game drive, you will have the chance for more fantastic game sightings and birds… Muchenje is not fenced-in and wildlife is free to wander in and around the camp, as the Lodge is neighbouring the National Park
