Chobe Bakwena Lodge is an eco-luxury retreat on the banks of the Chobe River, located in the friendly town of Kasane right next to Chobe National Park, ideally positioned for the place where Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana meet. This is the where you want to go to for a truly heart-warming Botswana safari. The lodge is an oasis with excellent food (you will never forget their home-made bread), comfortable rooms, cosy nooks and stunning views. Bakwena Lodge on the Chobe River was constructed according to eco-principles, with locally sourced materials.
Chobe Bakwena Lodge comprises ten rondavel style chalets, two of which are family units. 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. As mentioned before, the chalets are built according to both ecological and traditional African principles. The chalets boast a laid-back kind of luxury, which immediately unwinds your body and mind, especially after taking an outdoor shower under the African night sky: an absolute must-do. Each chalet has an interior bathroom opening on to an outside garden with an outside shower. Built-in daybeds offer ample opportunity to absorb the changing moods of the Chobe, take in an amazing sunset – with the biggest orange glowing ball you have ever seen – or peek at wildlife seeking refreshment in the river. The main area you will find a lounge, restaurant – serving African fusion dishes inspired by traditional Setwana cuisine -, a Rain Tree Bar overlooking the river, and an inviting swimming pool where you can take a plunge. Also, don’t skip the gift shop, this is probably one of the most thoughtfully stocked in Chobe.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing. Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
Our trip consisted of accommodation and tours in Victoria Falls, transfers to Botswana, accommodation and photography safaris there, then transfers back to Zimbabwe. Transfers, accommodation again in Vic Falls.My communication was with Ludwick who was amazing. He went way above and beyond normal service to make me feel confident in the organisation of our trip
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure.
I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon with the elephants. I rode an 8 year old female, her name is not in my head, and it was magical. She loved her treats at the end of the ride and her trainer was a lovely man. We talked the whole hour and he taught me so much about these magical creatures.
Gertrude was always very prompt in replying during the planning process and very helpful with visa information. This trip to Africa was our first and we started with Kenya and a 10 day safari. We wanted to experience water camps and lodges as well so worked with Falcon to make that happen.
myself and my 13yr old daughter used Falcon Safaris for all our outings as well as airport transfers. Canoeing, Devils Pool visit and Elephant back ride. They were all fantastic especially Vimbai and Edna. We had an amazing time and nothing was too much trouble to sort out for us.
