MUCHENJE SAFARI LODGE RATES: Muchenje Safari Lodge Rates

Situated on an escarpment edge, on the remote western side of the world famous Chobe National Park, Muchenje Safari Lodge is the only lodge in this area and offers an unique and prolific wildlife experience. The lodge is just forty minutes from Kasane and two hours by road from Victoria Falls. Muchenje offers unparalleled safari experiences for both discerning clientele and newcomers to the bush alike. Owner run and managed, attention to detail is paramount with nothing being too much trouble at Muchenje.  Muchenje is a privately owned and operated camp.

Accommodation            For images of Muchenje Safari Lodge, click Muchenje Images
Muchenje accommodates just 22 guests in intimate exclusivity. The eleven twin-bedded thatched chalets, all with en-suite facilities, are situated on the escarpment edge, each with its own balcony and unique view. Each chalet is exquisitely furnished and great care has been taken to create a true African 'ambience'.

Overlooking the Chobe River and floodplains, the main lodge features a dining area, bar, reception, curio shop, game viewing platform and library. The swimming pool is built amongst natural rock formations, taking advantage of the African vista and providing a tranquil setting for guests to relax during the heat of the day. Meals are served table d'bush, wholesome and plentiful, yet well presented. Theme dinners, vegetarians and special meal requests are catered for. Guests dine together on a long railway sleeper dining table; dress is always informal.

Internet access is available for guests.

Muchenje Safari Lodge offers the most diverse safari activities to be found in the Chobe area. Game drives are conducted in open Land Rovers with qualified professional guides. Imagine the explosive tranquility of hundreds of elephants surrounding you, or the excitement of a lion kill. Because Muchenje falls outside of the Chobe National Park, night drives are possible and offer guests an opportunity to see some of the lesser known nocturnal creatures of Africa.

River Cruises offer guests the chance to experience game viewing on the Chobe River. Drift noiselessly past a bathing herd of Elephants or enter the Hippo's world of Crocodiles and amazing birdlife On guests' request, fishing and game drives to the interior and most remote parts of central Chobe will gladly be granted. Another option is a walking safari. Explore the intricacies of the bush studying animal behavior, plants, insects and Big game approaches. Muchenje's guides carry a fire arm for your personal protection. For guests seeking some traditional Botswana culture, visit an elder's home to get a glimpse into the tribal life of Botswana.

Situated on the far western side of Chobe National Park, Muchenje is far removed from any other safari camp in this area. Guests have access to the great herds of Chobe without the crowds often experienced within the public parts of Chobe itself.  Chobe National Park includes vast landscapes, open plains, Baobab Trees and ancient woodlands. The wildlife in Chobe roams free in profusion and diversity. The Elephant population, estimated to number in excess of 45,000, is the largest single concentration in Africa surviving within the confines of a National Park. However, Chobe is not fenced and its Elephants are free to wander where they choose.

During the dry season, the herds migrate from south to north and congregate along the perennial Chobe River and fertile floodplains. The sight is spectacular and unforgettable - red winter sunsets, Elephant, Buffalo in their thousands. The quality of timeless Africa is real and very strong and the vistas are of an almost bygone era.
