Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Chobe Bush Lodge is a well appointed, clean and quiet lodge to stay in. Our room was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. You can sit in the room of on the veranda and watch wild animals walking past and feeding. The restaurant at Chobe Bush Lodge was excellent. Good variety of food and wines. Breakfast and lunch is served at the Chobe Safari Lodge which is next door/100 metres walk. Good variety. The staff in the Activity Centre were sensational. They arranged sunrise, sunset and river safaris. I've never seen so many animals!!! I would certainly stay there again.

Do you camp as we do on our trips? For camping this is probably the best choice. The campsites are right next to the river with a view on hippos, crocs and other wildlife. The pool area and restaurant are very nice. We enjoyed a relaxing stay there.
For those who don´t want to sit in the car even for shopping is easy to jump just "next door" to supermarkets and exchange bureau. Relaxing walk through town is also easy as everything is within walking distance. Enjoy your stay!

We stayed for 3 days at this resort. It's a huge, well maintained resort. The Chobe River Lodge and Bush Lodge are within the same resort. Beside the famous Chobe River. Guests can ho around the entire area. Fabulous and comfortable rooms, food ( continental), and great service. The staff made us comfortable . A lady named Rejoice attended to us personally. She took extremely good care of us. Our safari guide was Samson. He was extremely knowledgeable, cooperative and we had a thrilling wildlife viewing experience. We saw elephants, hippos, crocs, giraffes etc. Most important we were able to see lions and lionesses in prides. One should have an enthusiastic, knowledgeable safari guide. Like we had in Samson. We were also taken on a wonderful Chobe River Cruise to see animals coming to drink water from the river.
I will highly recommend the Chobe Bush Lodge.

Spent 2 nights here at Chobe Bush Lodge last week. Rooms were nice w/adequate amenities. Biggest problem was bugs!! There were bugs everywhere, harmless little things that look like ticks but are not, but still creepy. Mosquito netting helped to feel more comfortable sleeping at night but took some adjustment and never unpacked my bag. Kept that zipped shut the whole time there.

Aside from that, the river cruises from their sister resort across the street were INCREDIBLE!! Issac and KG were our captain, bartender and guides and were amazing. Got us right up close to see so many animals elephants, hippos, crocs, water buffalo and birds, even changed boats when our group size doubled at the last minute so we were more comfortable. Asked us what we wanted to see on day #2 so he could focus our time on that. Asked for hippos out of the water w/their mouths open and he delivered!!!

Buffet dinner at the Safari Lodge was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend it over the ala carte meal at the Bush Lodge. Enjoyed my stay there but would choose the sister resort - Safari Lodge over the Bush Lodge if I were to return - better food, better views, better pool.

Excellent all round! Campers, i think, played music until early hours f the morning. Suggest room far away from campsite or ask management to intervene. Boat trips worth every cent. Those interested in birds may want to ask drivers at the start of game drives to stop for these. Big game abundant!

A good location next to the game park and river, with animals regularly strolling through. River cruise was excellent with a great skipper, safaris were also great with very knowledgeable guides. Food ok, but service could be very slow.

Chobe Bush Lodge is a great location for guided wildlife drives and river boat trips. Our driver was excellent - friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. We never expected that we would see so many elephants!

Chobe Bush Lodge is the perfect location to start on Safari. The proximity to the river and the animals was amazing. It was wonderful to see the animal community--when you can look out over an expanse and see elephants, giraffe, hippos, birds, antelope, etc. Every drive we saw/experienced something new.
We appreciated how the guides would keep one another informed to allow the maximum number of people to view the wildlife.
The food and drink at the restaurant were excellent and much appreciated after all day game drive or cruise.
We hope to return some day but would absolutely recommend this to anyone traveling to Africa on Safari.

A good position but need to be relatively fit to walk up from the safari lodge as fairly steep slope and lots of stairs up to rooms.Rooms good but had a problem with showers.VERY hot water and very difficult to get a usable temperature. Buffet breakfast good, buffet lunch disappointing. Restaurant in Bush lodge was al a cart and very good. Both pools were a good place to cool off. Lunch snacks service was very slow. Game rides were good with guides communicating between each other over what routes had been taken on earlier rides. Every effort was made to see a good selection of game. The evening cruise was very good with free snacks and a paid bar with a good selection of drinks.
