Muchenje Safari Lodge sits on an escarpment within the Chobe Forest Reserve on the quieter western side of Botswana’s Chobe National Park. With wonderful views of the Chobe River, the Caprivi Strip, and seasonal flood plains, its position means that it is far away from the bustle of Kasane, yet just two hours from the magnificent Victoria Falls. Chobe is renowned for its prolific wildlife and huge concentrations of game. Muchenje prides itself in the variety and quality of safari experiences, allowing you to explore the Chobe and all its wonders.

Being owner-run, Muchenje Safari Lodge allows for a more personalized service and homely atmosphere, with experienced managers and guides looking after you every step of the way.

Muchenje Safari Lodge offers 11 thatched private cottages, each beautifully appointed having its own unique view of the Chobe and Caprivi flood plain. Relax on your deck and soak up the African sun whilst the animals come to drink at the river.

Of the 11 cottages, one is a family unit and accommodates four guests, comprising of a bedroom with two bathrooms downstairs and an open plan loft area with two single beds upstairs. This unit also works well for a small group of friends traveling together. The cottages boast new decks to enhance your viewing experience allowing you more space and time to enjoy the scenery. All cottages are tastefully decorated.

  • Type of accommodation: Luxury Lodge

Program

Your safari activities are planned carefully to coincide with when you are most likely to see wildlife. This means early morning activities like game drives or guided bush walks, late afternoon activities such as game drives as the temperatures start dropping, and even night game drives which you will do right after dinner to see who is moving around the reserve once the sun has disappeared.

Muchenje prides itself on the variety and quality of the safari adventures and experiences that it offers. Chobe plays host to some of the world’s best game viewing. Muchenje is perfectly located for seeing the best that Chobe has to offer.

Chobe is famous for its large herds of elephant and buffalo, along with numerous predators including lions, leopards, and wild dogs. There is a great diversity of plains game and an astonishing array of bird species.

Early morning

An early start means an equally early wake-up call. Just before sunrise, a welcoming cup of coffee is served at the main lounge with a small snack, about half an hour before the game drive is scheduled to leave. This is generally a good time to go on safari as the temperatures are still cool and the animals are still active, including the big cats who will be returning from a night of hunting or patrolling their territory.

If you are tired of sitting on drives, you are welcomed to join the morning bush walk which explores the floodplain and open areas close to the lodge which is a wonderful experience that stimulates all the senses and brings a tremendous feeling of accomplishment, followed by a much deserved breakfast. Walking is a weather dependent activity, but the lodge will be able to advise each day if the walk is possible. All activities return at about 8:30 a.m. in time for a hearty breakfast.

Afternoon

Most guests enjoy a light lunch and then either relax in their rooms and enjoy the wonderful view from their deck, or use the lodge amenities such as the pool to while away the heat of the day.

The afternoon drive leaves the lodge at about 3:30 p.m. as temperatures cool. The animals also awaken from their siestas and move towards the water or feeding grounds. Your drives will explore the western side of the park making the most of the late afternoon light for beautiful photographic shots. Game drives have to be out of the Chobe National Park at sunset, so you will return to the lodge in time for evening drinks before a delicious dinner.

Full day activity: Chobe River

During your stay at Muchenje, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the full day activity which sets out from the lodge after breakfast and heads towards the boat launch site on the eastern side of the park.

Here, you will embark on the wonderful Chobe River cruise which enables you to witness the herds of elephants coming to the river to drink, play, and socialize. Many of the herds cross the river for grazing, and having a line of elephants swimming in front of you as you enjoy a picnic lunch is something you are unlikely to ever forget.

After exploring the river and finding other wildlife dependent on the Chobe, you will then return to land and enjoy a leisurely game drive back through the park along the river road to Muchenje. Although you return in the early evening, slightly disheveled, you are brimming with excitement of the encounters you have enjoyed through the day.

Evening

After the drives, guests usually congregate in the lodge bar or on the outside decks and enjoy a sundowner before enjoying the evening meal. After dinner, the guides invite you to leave the lodge to explore the Chobe Forest Reserve for a night drive.

Although it is only an hour or so long, it gives a different perspective to the African bush. It is a wonderful opportunity to find nocturnal animals which have not featured during the other drives, such as genets, civets, porcupines, and etc. The evenings are often rounded off with a few drinks around the fire and swapping safari stories.
