The lodge was a great location. It is located right on the Chobe River.
We had organized 2 activities a day. Upon arrival the first day we organized the river boat ride. AWESOME!!
The Lodge has several boats.... we were able to get right up on the river animals. We got to watch a male elephant and a Cape Buffalo get into an argument. Hippos were everywhere.
Food is served buffet style and was very good. We even got to try Mopane (grubs), but they have choices for everyone.
I recommend you do a morning AND evening safari. The animals are out at the different times of day. We got to see a Leopard who had just taken down an Impala on our morning game drive.
If you go during the winter months...TAKE WARM CLOTHES. We have on many layers in the morning and shorts in the afternoons.
BTW take your Malaria pills and bring some 30% deet or higher bug spray. You don't need a lot but you do need it.
