River View Lodge

Air conditioned rooms and chalets in a peaceful location just a short drive from the national park, River View Lodge is your home from home by the Chobe River. Friendly staff arrange safaris, river cruises and village visits which are balanced by time to relax in the lounge and bar and by the pool.

Convenient for both Kasane airport and Chobe National Park, the privately owned River View Lodge offers comfy, air conditioned accommodation and pleasant communal areas. As the name implies, it’s located by the river and the main areas share lovely views.

Lodge staff can arrange safaris in Chobe National Park, cruises on the Chobe River and day trips to Victoria Falls just an hour’s drive away, as well as a visit to a wildlife rehabilitation centre, local village tour and cycling trips, giving you plenty of options during your stay.

The lodge facilities include a lounge, bar, dining room and a sundeck built around a small swimming pool. The pretty gardens lead right down to the river.

Rooms occupy one wing of the main building and all have an outdoor sitting area overlooking the courtyard. The freestanding chalets have river and garden views. All provide comfy, air conditioned accommodation with en-suite bathrooms, and some of the chalets have extra beds making them ideal for families. The lodge is usually booked on a bed and breakfast basis but half and full board can be arranged.  There is also a private home with lounge and dining areas, a kitchen and its own garden for those requiring a higher degree of independence and privacy.

Times to go:

Chobe National Park is a year-round safari destination. Game is easier to see in the dry season (May – November) when it congregates by the river. Most rainfall in the wet season is in the form of short showers, with January and February the wettest months. There are fewer visitors at this time of year, so less crowds.
