This was the first stop on my holiday and nowhere else came close to my stay at Mucheje. I was a lone traveller and I was made to feel so welcome here. I was completely looked after for my whole four night stay. The managers, Joy and Richard are wonderful hosts and are so knowledgable about Botswana. Nothing was ever...

Muchenje was the mid-point of our trip to Botswana and Zambia, and we stayed there for 3 nights in mid-March 2015. From the friendly welcome on our arrival, to the hugs and waves on our departure, we were made to feel totally at home in the comfortable lodge accommodation. On arrival we were given drinks, cold flannels, and a comprehensive...

It was a bit of a complicated trip from our previous stop in Zambia but the welcome at Muchenje made it all worth while. Everybody seemed pleased to see us and immediately made us feel at home. The property itself is in an excellent location over-looking a (lit) waterhole and is very authentic in feeling. Despite this it obviously benefits...

We stayed at Muchenje for 4 nights and had a memorable time. Be it the game drives, the accommodation or the team, everything was perfect. The drives were fun and educational, the time in the lodge was very pleasant and Rob and his wife are perfect hosts. Highly recommended

We stayed for 3 nights at this exceptional lodge. It is run incredibly efficiently by the managers, Joy & Robert. The rooms were very well equipped and the service was exemplary. When I cheekily asked for a pot of hot chocolate for night-time and a carafe of excellent coffee for very early in the morning, it was delivered with incredible...

The safaris were amazing - elephants, lions, hippos, giraffes, antelopes, baboons, crocodiles and much more. I took more than 300 animal and bird photos from land and river! At the lodge a warm welcome, stunning location, superb food, comfortable, private accommodation designed to make the most of the superb views, helpful staff, and an informative guide. There were even warm,...

We booked this 4 night package through Imagine Africa, who did a great job of booking flights, transfers, and accommodation. The all-inclusive package really was just that, even including laundry!
