Chobe Game Lodge
Chobe and Savute

This iconic lodge in the Chobe National Park, was the venue for the marriage between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton (2nd time we believe!) and to this day, remains one of the grand dames of Botswana’s safari world. Graceful high arches, quarry tiled floors and barrel vaulted ceilings create an atmosphere of cool tranquillity.  Chobe Game Lodge remains the only private game lodge in the region, which makes it very popular for those wishing to experience this area so abundant in wildlife.  Other facilities include a large swimming pool with terrace, a riverside boma area, a stylish bar with an outside terrace, an expansive deck offering magnificent views over the Chobe River and conference facilities for business travellers. All meals are catered for in various locations throughout the lodge, including the terrace, boma and riverfront deck.

Each of Chobe Game Lodge's 4 luxury suites has an individual plunge pool set on a private terrace with breath-taking panoramic views of the endless open plains. All 46 river facing rooms are tastefully furnished, each room with hand crafted Rhodesian teak furniture and walls decorated with original African carvings and paintings. 

Safaris from Chobe Game Lodge are a grand affair, taken either in 4 x 4 vehicles along the Chobe River or on the specially adapted river cruise boats. There are electric game viewing vehicles within the fleet as well as a few electric boats for silent sailing on the magnificent Chobe River. Chobe Game Lodge also boasts the only all-female team of professional guides in Africa.   Witness the huge herds of elephants both in and out of the water. The park is also home to a healthy number of lions, giraffe and plenty of antelope species.

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
