Top quality gracious hospitality. Attention was paid to every detail of the stay from the initial greeting to the accommodations to the food. Views of the sunset/sunrise and waterhole from high on the hill were among the highlights of our trip to Botswana.

Hi There Thank you for your positive review. Our lodge is perfectly located on a naturally elevated platform - a hill overlooking the Savuti region. The waterhole is a huge attraction for plains game and larger animals. We're glad you found this to be a highlight! Aren't the sunsets just incredible?

Amazing location on a hill overlooking a waterhole and the bush with a variety of beautiful trees including baobabs. Being welcomed personally by managing couple Abram and Nanette. Bungalows luxury, beautiful ambience in the restaurant, friendly and competent staff and food excellent. Excursion into the bush with exciting sightings as leopard, lions and many elephants.

This lodge is remotely located on the top of a hill isolated in the heart of the Chobe National Park, on the north-west of the Kalahari. The main building is very nicely decorated and largely open which gives an impression to float above the bush, in the breeze and the sun. Service and cuisine are largely above the already high...

We visited Ghoha Hills in 2014 and again in August 2016 and both times we really enjoyed every minute. The lodge is situated upon the Ghoha Hills with a stunning view over an endless African landscape. So it’s a great pleasure just to sit on the terrace and enjoy the wilderness.

Fabulous location, accommodation, food and service. The travel into the Ghoha Hills in a safari vehicle was long and bumpy and flying would perhaps be a better option for some people, however the landscape and animals made the drive worthwhile for me.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched high on the eastern side of the Ghoha Hills, this hilltop retreat boasts unparalleled 180 degree views across the savannah and the natural waterhole which attracts wildlife year round. To the south east of the lodge, the Savuti Marsh beckons with its unique game viewing opportunities. The Marsh is a relic of an inland lake which is fed by the Savuti channel. Covered by extensive savannah and rolling grasslands, the wildlife is dynamic year round. The dry and wet seasons change the scenery and offer sightings of the annual migrations of zebras and predators. Elegance abounds in the eleven well-appointed canvas suites, which have been elevated on wooden decks, ensuring spectacular sunrise views. An exclusive and intimate ambience permeate this understated luxury lodge affording even the most discerning of travellers to Botswana a truly unique safari experience. Ghoha Hills is an eco lodge, using solar power for minimum impact to the environment. The lodge blends into the natural environment whilst maintaining the integrity of the pristine natural bush. ... more   less
