The Garden Lodge overview

The Garden Lodge is in Kasane, just a 2km drive from Chobe National Park. Unlike many of the lodges in this area, The Garden Lodge is small and intimate, catering for a maximum of 22 guests at a time. The garden is a special feature, filled with fruit trees and flowers that attract large numbers of birds and a wonderful place to take a stroll as you rest between activities.

You’ll be offered an early morning game drive in the national park, which is an exciting way to begin your day. As well as the elephants for which the park is known, there are large populations of buffalo, giraffe and impala and you should spot lions, too. In the late afternoon you can take a relaxing cruise on the Chobe River, watching out all the while for animals and birds.

The centrepiece of the lodge is the striking 2-storey building housing ground floor dining and upstairs lounge and the bar, also known as the map room after the many maps on display there. There’s loads of room here and ample seating. The structure is open to the front, overlooking the garden and river.  Outdoors there’s a boma for al fresco dining and an inviting swimming pool. Meals are generally eaten together, jovial occasions shared with fellow guests.

Rooms are simply furnished, with bedside tables, patterned bedspreads and rugs on the wooden floor. The high ceilings lend them an airy feel and with both air conditioning and fans the rooms remain beautifully cool. A door to the side leads to the shower room. Drinking water and glasses are provided. Each room has a private veranda with garden views.
