At Muchenje you also have some game walks and night drives provided in the forest reserve. The Chobe Forest Reserve has no fences towards the Chobe National Park. Animals roam freely in the forest reserve. Making this a unique and less travelled destination near Chobe.

Easily accessible from Livingstone, Victoria Falls, and Kasane. Muchenje is well worth inclusion in any Botswana itinerary. The lodge is on the western outskirts of the Chobe Park. If you seek to get away from the busy town of Kasane, then Muchenje comes highly recommended by our team. All in all a great lodge. Large enough to offer excellent service and small enough to care. A great feel to Muchenje Safari Lodge and some of the best sunsets in Africa.
