About Chobe Bakwena Lodge

Chobe Bakwena Lodge is located in the Chobe, Botswana. The lodge is surrounded by the Chobe National Park and forest reserve, some 90 km from Victoria Falls and Livingstone. Bakwena, from Setswana meaning people of the crocodile, is one of the largest tribes in Botswana. A tribe that embraces the surrounding culture and country as inspiration for its style and hospitality.

Bakwena Lodge comprises nine rondavel-style chalets. All situated under the shady canopy of Acacia trees. Each site has been selected for its river view and is surrounded by indigenous riverine bush. Built around both ecological and traditional African principles, each chalet offers laid-back luxury with its own raised deck overlooking the river. Shower under an African night sky surrounded by the sounds of the bush is a must-do experience that cleanses and energizes both body and soul. Built-in daybeds offer ample opportunity to absorb the changing moods of the Chobe.

Once you’ve unwound and settled in you may join us in the main entertainment area with its lounge, restaurant and Rain Tree bar overlooking the river, or to cool off in our inviting swimming pool.

The personal touch of owner-manager’s, Adam and Jen, can be felt from the hand selected furniture to the food conceptualised by the owners and chefs. Expect simple African-fusion dishes prepared from locally sourced ingredients and inspired by traditional Setswana cuisine.
