We were moved from Chobe Safari Lodge to Chobe Marina due to a booking discrepancy and what a pleasure it was!
The rooms were great and the setting absolutely stunning. Food was good and service friendly and efficient. Would stay again without hesitation.

A dream came true when a very reasonable room rate was offered to me as SADC resident enabling me to spend 3 nights at Chobe Marina Lodge.
The staff was warm, friendly and welcoming and we had a fab time!

I enjoyed my time at the Chobe Marina Lodge. The views were great as well as the rooms, which were quite spacious. It was good to stay connected while on tour using the free wifi service at the lodge and the lodge had an overall very comforable feel to it. The thing that let down my stay a little bit was the evening dinner we received on our first night, it was rather average to say the least. Overall a quite acceptable and spacious hotel.

i always enjoy the warm welcome and hospitality of the staff above all else, which doesn't supersede the room quality, clean spacious, and have all provision for self catering, though i always opt for the buffet meals which is also supplemented by the ale cart menu offered at the pool bar and the mokoro bar.. afternoons are perfect for game viewing cruises, either by boat or 4x4 drive, which are always graces by a life traditional dance performance presented upon arrival from the cruise. my favorite dinner still remains 'the life fire grill dinner'

We were getting to the end of a 15 day safari and in my diary I wrote the above "Wow, beautiful Lodge". We were meant to be staying at Chobe Safari Lodge but along the way our guides informed us there had been a change of plan and we were now going to the Chobe Marina Lodge and because of the 'inconvenience' Chobe Safari Lodge would give us a free dinner cruise on the Chobe.... would say this was definitively a 'win, win' situation. Thank you.
My room was amazing. After finding I had been given preferential treatment for some lucky reason, I kept a little quiet amongst our group of 12 plus 2 guides. My room had a connecting door to another and I obviously had the larger part of a family room with separate bedroom, very large sitting room and kitchenette. The bathroom was spacious with a separate bath and beautiful Maun made hand basin....... love that the hand basins in African Lodges are often very individualized and arty. Ordered a Birthday cake, so we could have a celebration for one of our guides on the boat cruise and that was no problem to the Lodge staff. The grounds were well kept and had warthogs grazing. The Lodge is right on the Chobe River The meals and service were great. We also went on a day boat cruise on the Chobe and an early morning safari into Chobe National Park. We saw lots of beautiful game on both occasions. Honestly could not speak highly enough of Chobe Marina Lodge. Would highly recommend it.

Had a lovely stay at Chobe Mariner Lodge. Fantastic location, beautiful grounds, lovely room, staff were fantastic, would recommend it. We stayed while attending a conference and were very pleased with the service we received. Love the pool and swim up bar although it was too cold to use it this time.

Thank you Jonathan for taking the time to rate Chobe Marina Lodge on trip Advisor. The conference was successful and the role you played very interesting indeed. The lodge is perfectly situated and the pool is great, you will have to visit again so you can swim up to the bar.
