Unusual for a Botswana Lodge, Muchenje is owner run and managed, which allows for a more personalised service. The lodge enjoys a unique position to the west of Botswana’s famed Chobe National Park and this position means that it is far away from the bustle in Kasane, and guests enjoy extensive game drives in a rarely visited section of the Chobe National Park. In addition, as the Lodge is located in the Chobe Forest Reserve, game walks and night drives are also available, which add immeasurably to the wildlife experience. Muchenje prides itself on the variety and quality of the Safari experiences, and interactions that it offers. Guests enjoy flexibility in terms of activities, and wonderful hospitality in an idyllic setting.
