Simple but adequate rooms. We stayed for two nights on half board basis. Fairly close to the river and game park. We did a game park drive and a river game cruise. Not much to see on game drive except mainly small bocks and kudu . River lots of hippo buffalo crocs etc

We stayed in a twin room,which was simple but adequate. The room was air conditioned which was a treat and the restaurant was friendly ,viby and we enjoyed many scrumptious meals here. It was lovely to dip into the refreshing pool and Jack our Chobe Game Guide was fantastic at spotting and finding game.

An extended restaurant area with a nice cubed garden setting is the new addition to Thebe's facilities since the main, old restaurant burnt down. It continues to be a favourite of mine and the owners continue to improve and implement what they say will be done. As a local, I recommend Thebe for atmosphere, good uncomplicated food an adequate selection...

Clean room, good shower and a bar/restaurant area with helpful staff. Elijah is a star. Felt secure with plenty of parking. Downsides were poor wifi and a hatched faced receptionist who could audition for Rosa Klebb in a Bond movie remake. Booking a game drive proved a trial. We went elsewhere. We stayed three nights and considered the place reasonably...

I camped with a group and stayed in a twin room. Didn't visit the restaurant/Bar. Our campsite was OK though there was a puddle to the side that limited the options for our big group. The covered area, kitchen bench and bri were good. We were next to the toilet block and washing line which were well appointed and clean....

We went to eat pizza - regrettably we did not try anything else at all on the menu, other than the booze! The pizza was excellent, and really chunky - I doubt more than about 20% of the clientele who had pizza did not need a doggy bag! It will fill you up! As for the wine list, it is...
