The Details

Muchenje’s main lodge features a spacious lounge, bar, and dining area with views of the Chobe River and our waterhole.

While the dining area centers around a communal dining experience, guests have the option to dine privately. For a more intimate setting, there's a pergola by the pool.

They offer a Bush Braai (barbecue) in a boma situated in the bush, close to the lodge.

Our chefs prepare delicious and diverse meals, accommodating vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets.

Extensive deck areas provide guests with a relaxing space to enjoy the scenery.

They are ideal for watching the African sunset with a cold drink or stargazing around our fire pit.

The swimming pool, open year-round, overlooks the floodplain.


Muchenje features 10 private thatched cottages and a larger family cottage, each elegantly designed with a unique view of the Chobe floodplain.

The family cottage provides ample comfort, featuring an additional mezzanine open-plan sleeping area that can accommodate 2 children. With 2 spacious bathrooms and a large deck, it is ideal for families or groups of young friends traveling together.
