Muchenje Safari Lodge

Muchenje Safari Lodge

Chobe National Park


Muchenje Safari Lodge Location Map

Muchenje Safari Lodge provides some of Botswana's finest safari accommodation in Chobe. The lodge sits atop an escarpment overlooking the banks of the Chobe River and has unparalleled views across the impressive flood plains. The safari experiences offered here are ideal for both discerning clientele and newcomers to the bush alike. Attention to detail is paramount, with nothing being too much trouble at Muchenje Safari Lodge.

Situated on the quiet western edge of the Chobe National Park, Muchenje is a 5 minutes drive from Chobe's Ngoma Gate. Morning and afternoon game drives use this gate to enter and explore this area of the Park along the banks of the Chobe River. The drives explore the river road and woodland areas that are adjacent to the river, which host a myriad of species. The Chobe flood plains provide an important food source for thousands of animals during the winter months (June to November) and witnessing this prolific wildlife is a safari goers dream!  Along with the immense diversity of species of plains game is an impressive number of predators that also rely on this prolific game activity. Game drives are rarely uneventful, and especially during the winter months they can be a wildlife extravaganza!

Guests can also enjoy boat cruises on the Chobe River, launched from Muchenje's private jetty, as well as guided morning bush walks to explore the river frontage and the open pans within easy reach of the lodge, and exciting night drives to spot smaller nocturnal animals such as porcupine and genet.

Each of the lodges 11 en-suite rooms are exquisitely furnished and have a wonderful African ambience. Each room has their own incredible double aspect views of the Chobe River, with private veranda.

The elegant main safari lodge incorporates a dining area, bar, viewing platforms, viewing decks and a small gift shop. The lodge's swimming pool takes full advantage of the fantastic views and provides a tranquil setting for guests to relax during the heat of the day.

General Information For Guests

Guests of Muchenje can indulge in breakfast on the Chobe in the form of a leisurely boat cruise, gin and tonic sundowners on the river and, of course, a lunch cruise – all of which provide guests with the opportunity to experience fantastic sightings of elephants, hippos, crocodiles and buffalo.

Morning walks within the Forest Reserve is wonderfully rewarding. in the early mornings, before the African heat arrives, the guides explore the river frontage and open pans within easy reach of the lodge, offering guests an opportunity to be totally aware of what is around you and the great African outdoors.

The lodge also offers fascinating drives after dinner each night. Leaving the lodge at about 21:00 the drives venture onto the river road in front of the lodge. Without fences between the Park and forest reserve, there is the full array of species to find. But for the hour or so that the night drive is out, the smaller nocturnal animals are often enjoyed - such as porcupine, genet, civet etc.

For guests staying 3 nights, a visit to the local village of Muchenje is also offered.
