Chobe Bakwena Lodge is an eco-luxury retreat surrounded by the Chobe National Park on the banks of the Chobe River near the village of Kazangula. The name Bakwena embraces the surrounding culture of Botswana, meaning ‘people of the crocodile’ and is also one of the largest tribes in Botswana.
Chobe Bakwena Lodge comprises of 10 rondavel style chalets, two of which are family units, all situated under the shady canopy of Acacia trees. Each chalet site has been selected for its river view and is surrounded by indigenous riverine bush. Built around both ecological and traditional African principles, each chalet offers laid-back luxury with its own raised deck overlooking the river and built-in daybeds offering ample opportunity to absorb the changing moods of the Chobe. Each chalet has an interior bathroom opening onto an outside garden with an outside shower.
The personal touch of owner-managers can be felt from the hand-selected furniture to the food served at meal times where simple, African-fusion dishes, inspired by traditional Setswana cuisine are offered. The swimming pool and main area with its lounge, restaurant and Rain Tree bar overlooking the river offers guests a relaxed atmosphere to unwind in.
Activities on offer includes game drives or river cruises in the Chobe with fishing trips, bird watching, nature walks, cultural tours and visiting Impalila Island also possible at an additional cost.
