“We cannot recommend this lodge enough! The staff made us feel like part of the family and the food was incredible! The property was impeccably clean as well as our room. We cannot recommend it enough.”
“It was truly a magical experience. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. The dinners were absolutely amazing.
The rooms are really nice and the setting next to the river was beautiful.
The game drives were stunning and a lot of effort was put in to taking us to where we can take the best photos
and to find the animals we wanted to see.
It was truly a time we will remember and would love to visit again in future.
Thank you to all the amazing people at River View Lodge for making our stay so memorable.”
This website looks like it is too good to be true, but it is not, it is exactly what it promises and so much more!
Great location, great food, great rooms and amazing people. This was a holiday that we will never forget.
Thank you for making this an unforgettable experience!
“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.”
“We loved our three night stay here with games drives into Chobe National Park and Boat Cruises on the Chobe River. The lodges themselves are individual concrete built rooms that are spacious, modern, have air conditioning and full bathrooms. The staff were all kind and helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and the view of the river was nice. Our guide for the drives and cruises, Mathews was AMAZING. He was nice and knowledgeable and spent just the right amount of time letting us see the animals without rushing but without staying too long and getting bored. He really made the trip. Dinners were also amazing and really flavorful. We loved our stay.”
“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.”
“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!”
