The Chobe National Park offers a wide range of accommodation options, to suit all tastes and budgets, both inside and outside the park. While there is only one lodge situated within the park itself, there are a variety of accommodation choices to be found on the outskirts of Chobe, particularly along the beautiful riverfront and in and around the town of Kasane. Many of these lodging options include game drives, boat cruises and other activities, but if you want an all-encompassing experience – you can even spend your trip staying aboard your own private houseboat!
There are a handful of houseboats that operate on the Chobe, giving guests the unique opportunity to experience all that Chobe National Park has to offer without even having to leave the comfort of their floating lodge. Some of the boats encompass the Upper Zambezi as well as the Chobe. Boats vary in size from 5 suites up to 14 suites. Guests are generally able to tailor their own itineraries from day to day, so you can head out on a private water-based game drive on a small tender boat directly from your houseboat, spend a day fishing, or just sit back on the sun deck, relax and enjoy the ride.
