We had a very pleasant stay here. The lodge was clean and spacious. It is nicely situated close to town where you can stock up on supplies or grab a bite. All our needs were cared for including the tours we wanted and laundering of our clothes, for a reasonable price.
Unfortunately, the area is affected by frequent, planned electricity outage and no generator was on site. The owner promised that they would have a generator soon, so that won’t be an issue next time. We hope it will be sorted for the next visit!

Thank you for you review. Unfortunately with the travel bans precipitated by the covid19 virus there will not be the income for a generator in the unforeseeable future.

Great location to set up as base to visit Chobe National Park. Each "cottage" is a well furnished one bedroom house. Walking distance from shopping area, was extremely easy to get things done. Located on the main road, along the Chobe river with a pavilion where the guests can enjoy the river and nature, as if in the middle of the bush and not in a town. The guide recommended was extremely good, we had a fabulous time with him in a boat tour and evening safari.

The location is fine.
Excellent service. Firstly I spoke to Mrs. Williams via the phone and promised someone will communicate in the morning the following day regarding booking and quotes. Exactly that happened, Boi called the following morning to get missing details. Quote was sent as per our agreement over the phone. On my day of travel I got a call asking about if I'm still coming.
The service was absolutely perfect

Our three night stay at Chobe River Cottages was very enjoyable. The cottage was clean, spacious, quiet, beautifully air-conditioned and everything worked! We especially liked the availability of electrical outlets and wi-fi with adaptors for different plugs. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is very close to several excellent restaurants and a Spar market and shops, all within a few minutes walk.The kitchen was well supplied with everything we needed to self-cater.

The spacious chalet offered us the comfort and privacy that we needed.
The owner made sure everything is working well and no facilities are missing, paying great attention to the details.
We loved the garden, the verandah and the pool and the deck with a view to the river that's just 2 minutes walk from the chalet.

We really enjoyed our stay at Chobe River cottages. The 1 bedroom unit was very clean and nice with lots of space for 3 people. The kitchen was well equipped for us to prepare some meals. It had a nice veranda with outdoor sitting overlooking the courtyard. The pool was nice to cool off in on a hot day. There is a deck overlooking the river behind the property where you can watch the sunset. The location is great, its right in town within easy walking distance of the shops, bank and restaurants. KB was very helpful doing our laundry, booking us a boat tour and restaurant for dinner as well as a taxi to the Kazungula border crossing when we left as we were heading to Livingstone. Overall, I highly recommend it.

We loved the place! It’s just like a small, wonderful house for yourselves. The kitchen is stacked with literally anything you need ! The patio is so cozy, you can cover it with curtains for privacy and mosquitoes..all in all a perfect place ! Very clean. It is just a short walking distance of a minute or two to all main shops and restaurants as well. Definitely would go again!!! Also the Price is reasonable! The staff ultimately friendly! One little point is to mention, if you get there or have to leave out of office hours 8am-8pm you need to mention it before, since there wouldn’t be a possibility to get in and the bell or phone for those times don’t seem to work.

Thank you for your positive and informative review. There is always someone on site. Our security night staff come on duty when the day staff leave. But it is advisable to notify reception of late arrivals or early departures. Thanks for the tip.

Although we only needed a bed for the night, this accommodation provides much more for those who may need it. Lots of space, comprehensive kitchen facilities, private outdoor space, swimming pool, option to book a variety of activities.
Breakfast and lunch can be taken at the café next door, and there is a superb Indian Restaurant ten minutes walk down the road that serves excellent value for money food all day.

My fiancé and I loved it here. We stayed before and after safari, and felt at home in the cottages. It comes with everything you need for cooking your own meals. The staff is very accommodating and we were well taken care of. I cannot say enough of how excellent they were. The coffee buzz cafe is just a 100m walk down the road and has delicious meal options, as the cottages does not serve meals. The area is safe, as I was able to go running every day and walking around to the shops and restaurants. We loved it

What about mosquitoes? Do the beds have mosquito nets?
Answer from TrishWilliams2
Kasane, Botswana5 contributions1 helpful vote
Good evening. No the beds do not have nets so we recommend that windows and doors be closed after 4.40. both the bedroom and lounge are air conditioned. The varanda has mosquito netting curtains and coils are provided too.

Good Morning. Unfortunately you can never be guaranteed sightings but the Chobe is specular in September (though a little hot) and you should see a of of animals. We use Big Sam Hubba and Malachite Safaris for all our activities. They are both citizen owned, professionally run and good value for money. When you book voice your concerns about being too cramped so that they are aware of your needs.
Answer from Trish W
Kasane, Botswana1 contribution
Oh my goodness that is a long time ago. I wish I had seen the area then. You will find it much changed. Our accommodation is ideal for your requirements. Two adults and 2 children can be in one cottage and the other 2 adults in another. We have a sleeper coach in the lounge for the children.

We assume that you were actually trying to ask the people at Chobe River Cottages, but this section is for asking travelers. We stayed there in August 2016. The staff were very helpful and I am sure that they will be able to answer all your questions.
