Chobe Bakwena Lodge


Chobe Bakwena Lodge is 1.5 km from where four countries meet. The lodge is near Kasane, on the banks of the Chobe River. The owners describe Chobe Bakwena Lodge is an eco-luxury retreat. They pride themselves on leaving a minimal environmental footprint, both in terms of the construction and everyday running of the lodge.

There are 15 individually decorated chalets. Ten twin river view chalets, one river view honeymoon suite, one river view family room & five twin treetop chalets. The cottages have a raised wooden deck, a built-in day bed and a private garden. All units come with an open-air shower where guests can have a shower under the starry African sky.

It is perfect for travellers seeking a smaller lodge with all the luxuries and facilities.

Interestingly, Chobe Bakwena Lodge is named after the Bakwena tribe. The tribe derived their name from the Setswana, meaning “people of the crocodile”.

We recommend the fully inclusive rates and packages. Use this lodge to enjoy your visit to Chobe National Park in Botswana. A recommended stay is a minimum of two nights. You will have ample time to relax and appreciate what the Chobe region offers.

Bakwena Lodge is the perfect stopover on your way to the Chobe National Park and has great value for money.
