Muchenje Safari Lodge


Muchenje Safari Lodge perches on a high escarpment of the western Chobe region. The panoramic views from the lodge makes this a nature lover’s paradise. This region is known for its high concentration of wildlife, as many predators and large herbivores can be found here. You can see the Chobe River and Caprivi floodplain from the many viewing deck areas.

The lodge is situated in the Chobe Forest Reserve and close to the Ngoma border post to Namibia.There are no fences between the lodge and the Chobe National Park so the wildlife can move freely. You can spot elephant, giraffe, hippo and Cape buffaloes very easily, as well as lions, leopards, wild dogs (painted wolves), hyenas, jackals, serval cats, caracal (lynx), honey badgers and crocodiles.

The Caprivi floodplain is the start and finish point of the annual zebra migration to Nxai Pan, 250 km away! This is the largest mammal migration in Africa. Through the dry winter months, hundreds of zebras roam around the Muchenje Safari Lodge. They join the 15 000 other zebras for the migration every year.



Game drives are available in the Chobe National Park during the day. At Muchenje you also have guided bush walks and night drives provided in the forest reserve.

More about Muchenje

It’s easily accessible from Livingstone, Victoria Falls, and Kasane. This means Muchenje is well worth including in any Botswana itinerary. The lodge is on the western outskirts of the Chobe Park.
