5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Even with some small confusion about which rooms we reserved, we enjoyed our stay and appreciated the hospitality and humor of the staff and beauty and comfort of the facilities!

The terms of the hotel are not properly stated at booking. The charges are based on per head rather than per room: a two bed room offered at booking is charged double at check in due to being two people, something that is not mentioned when booking. Each person is charged $40 per day for entering the park where the property exists and this is not mentioned in the booking. The hotel attendants didn’t do a good job answering questions/addressing these concerns. Management needs to edit their booking so it states that the hotel charges per head rather than hotel room and address the park fees so guests know ahead of time. Rather than this, the hotel itself was a good experience and the attendants made sure we got tour guides into the park to see animals.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Amazing views in a beautiful setting.
this is our second visit in two years. We brought 4 friends this time and they were amazed by the accommodations and view. The pool and poolside bar are lovely (including the bartender, Toby). We highly recommend the spa and range of massages offered. Two notes: First, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included...remember this when considering the room rate. Second, there is a charge to enter the national park in which the lodge is located...$50 US PER PERSON for non-citizens, a vehicle fee, and a small charge for citizens. Third, although we did not do it, there is a "safari" option available for only $20 for a van full of guests if you use your own vehicle and driver. You stay within the park and take some backroads with the guide riding along with you directing and spotting.

I got an email that they transferred my booking to Paraa lodge as Chobe lodge was full. If Chobe lodge is full why did Expedia accept my booking in the first place. Later I found out that the fool Kanye West arrived in Chobe lodge which is probably the reason for the transfer. I booked in Chobe lodge as Paraa lodge is getting old and the food is lousy.
