We booked this accommodation based on a comment we over heard from a friend a year or so ago. They had heard about this lodge perched alongside the mighty Zambezi river, where the sun rose and set in full view from almost anywhere in the...More

A follow up question about the Cultural Village experience.... If you choose the optional extra of the cultural village experience, do you have to miss out on one or both of the other experiences of the day--game drive, canoe safari, game walk, etc? Can the cultural village experience be done during the day between the morning/evening game experiences? By the way, Odysseys doesn't seem to even know about your Cultural Village experience. I even asked one of their customer service people about it. I found it on your Lodge website. You might get more interest if Odysseys made it an option. (They do offer a village experience in Namibia--while the group is in Chobe--but there you have to miss both morning and evening game drives according to the information I've been given both verbally and in writing. May be different in reality since it's a 3-hour activity.) I am with the Odysseys group arriving on September 5.

I'm back from my trip. The Cultural Village is offered in the mornings (minimum of 2 participants). It becomes your morning activity, so you do miss a game drive or other activity. However, it is a nice ride up the river... More
