We stayed at Chobe Marina Lodge for two nights and took part in the game drives and the sunset river cruise. Both of these activities were well executed. The lodge is located right on the river. The food was good. We highly recommend the lodge.

Mass tourism, cheap quality and bad maintained rooms. Website pictures must be seen with one or two grains of salt to say the least! Buffet food where there might or might not be a refill.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay with us. Kasane is the main village bordering the Chobe National Park and is the hub of the entire region, so allot does happen in the village and as we are very involved with developing the area and community there are times that we do have conferences here, however these should not...

This hotel is well-situated. Our room, like most I think, had a balcony looking out over the river and was perfect. The general facilities are what you would expect in such a hotel, but what singles it out is its General Manager, whose open-doored office is right there on the foyer. Not that he's often in there, he's out like...

I enjoyed the buffets at this lodge. We went on a sunset game cruise and a morning safari. Beautiful sunset and sunrise. We saw lots of interesting animals. It was fun to see so many varieties of birds. We walked into the little town but there isn't a lot there to see and the souvenir shopping is limited. I did...

On the river, monkeys galore. Warthogs. Best buffet in Africa. Really good authentic Afircan food. The rooms were very nice, clean, quite. The dining area with a perfect thatched roof is just what you'd expect from a great game lodge. Tons of game drives all day long.

Absolutely Wonderful, From the Decor to the View as well as the Staff and the food. Recommend watching the sunset from the lower deck while having something to drink and going upstairs to the A La Carte restaurant for a great meal include some Botswana Beef, Arguably the best beef in the world.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at CML for our anniversary. The staff was very helpful and all activities were very easy to schedule. We loved that we could settle the bill at the end with USD instead of having to constantly withdraw money. I will certainly recommend the hotel to my friends and hope to come back again...
