“This lodge is wonderful! I love that it is a bit smaller so feels more like a family / cozy than the huge lodges in town. Beautiful location next to the river. Clean rooms with comfortable beds. The food is fabulous and worth staying for dinner! This is the second time I’ve stayed here and will definitely be back. Can’t recommend highly enough.”
“Big thank you to the team at River View Lodge. The team in the office and restaurant plus our guide combined to offer a great experience in a small, relaxed lodge. Both morning road safari and evening river safari were excellent. Just a short drive into Chobe National Park and blissfully quiet during the day by the pool. Highly recommended.”
“Fantastic friendly staff, great location, wonderful rooms, and excellent food. This lodge has well appointed individual cottages with A/C. Morning game drives and evening boat safari on the Chobe River were the highlight of our holiday. River View Lodge has the best and newest safari vehicle and pontoon safari boat in the area.”
“My friend and I loved River View Lodge because it was very small and cozy, right on the Chobe River. Despite its size, they had everything you would want, a small restaurant and bar, a nice little pool and a lovely outdoor sitting area to watch the sunset. The staff were fantastic. They were so warm and friendly, helping us make arrangements for our activities and transportation. The food was very good.
Great job River View Lodge! I would recommend your hotel to anyone who doesn’t want to deal with crowds of people at a large fancy resort. Thanks!”
“We were really impressed with our stay at River View Lodge. Our room was was spotlessly clean & spacious. The breakfasts & dinners were excellent as well as the unexpected treat of the high teas! The staff were all friendly. We cannot praise Mathews, our guide for the game dives and boat trips, too highly. He even found a leopard and a pride of lions for us! It was indeed a memorable experience!”
“Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! A fantastic place in a very good location! A staff who could not do more for their guests. So fantastic! Lovely food served by a pleasant service staff. Many exciting safari tours available. If I come back to Chobe and friendly Botswana one day – I know where to stay. Thanks again for two wonderful weeks!”
“We were delighted with the service rendered by every staff we had the opportunity to meet. Naming one or two may not do justice to any. As it was out family first visit to an African Safari, it was definitely an experience that would stay with us for a long time. With the lodge right in front of Chobe River, it is a perfect location for a peaceful respite from urban living.”
“Beautiful lodge situated on the banks of the Chobe River. The staff were very service-minded, rooms clean and comfortable, pool great, etc. The activities on offer, namely game drives and boat cruises in the Chobe National Park, were exceptionally good – all carried out using the lodge’s own guides, equipment, etc. Would definitely stay there again when/if we go back to Chobe!”
