The Garden Lodge Room

The Garden Lodge

Thatched roof rooms overlooking the Chobe River

In the small town of Kasane

A family-run guesthouse with homemade bread and stunning gardens set back from the banks of the Chobe river.

The Garden Lodge is in the small town of Kasane, on the Chobe River in Northern Botswana. The lodge is five minutes by boat from the Chobe National Park and approximately eight minutes by vehicle. Victoria Falls is an hour and a half drive from the lodge. This charming guesthouse is surrounded by peaceful bird life visiting the stunning, vast garden.

The lodge has just eight rooms with teak and mukwa furniture, and all rooms have a private veranda overlooking the Chobe River. Depending on your preference, beds can be made up as two singles or one king size double, styled with subtle African ethnic décor, neutral colours and patterned bed linen. Bathrooms are en-suite with spacious showers. The dining, under a thatched roof, is open to the swimming pool and the garden. Their bread is home made as are many of the jams and honeys. They are happy to meet your dietary requirements and preferences. There is an upstairs lounge overlooking the river as well as a boma under a shady acacia tree where we have afternoon tea. Dinners are eaten together, offering a family atmosphere and a chance to swap safari stories.

Your professional guide will join you for breakfast and take the opportunity to discuss your day's activities. Activities revolve around game viewing, either by daily game drive or boat river cruise, within the Chobe National Park. The Park with its estimated 140,000 elephants, huge herds of buffalo, and almost daily sightings of lion is a photographer’s dream.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
