We were a little concerned about the type of accommodations to expect and were so pleasantly surprised. This is definitely a 5 star hotel! Loved the comfy villas, the infinity pool at the edge of the river, the relaxing open air lounge. A gem in the middle of Africa!

These villas didn't look 5 star from the river but never judge a book by its cover as they say.A very warm friendly welcome by staff playing the local drums and singing.This place is modern but not as to take it away from the natural surroundings.The villas are right on the Chobe river,with your own private deck.The rooms are truly beautiful and so comfortable.Beautiful big bath,seperate toilet and shower too.You lookout over the river and island to see Hippos,elephants,crocodiles etc.The bird life is amazing as well.The bar fridge and nibbles is stocked well daily included in your stay.The restaurant is wonderful as are the wines,beers and spirits.Great swimming pool.Many tours to do from here as well.

Five star property and service all the way. Design is thoughtful, comfortable, chic and gorgeous. Management is professional and engaged. Nothing is too much trouble. Thanks Maryann, Ephraim, and Nerise!! Great food as well, especially the fresh fish and beef. It's Namibia, not Paris, so adjust your expectations accordingly (I'm talking to you previous TA contributors :)
Villas give the feel you're on a private yacht. Supremely comfortable and quiet. The Chobe area is full of wildlife. All outings are great, and some are pure magic. Considering all the inclusions, it is a good value. You'll likely not pay for anything extra at checkout. Highly recommended.

Room tip: All villas are great. Numbers 14 to 17 have a little more 'elbow room'.

These villas look beautiful from the water. They are stunning inside with large, open, comfortable gathering spaces. The view from your private balcony is amazing. Paradise. You can bring the wildlife up close with your in-room telescope. The staff are very nice and strive to make your visit perfect. The food is excellent. You will see LOTS of wildlife in this area by boat or land cruiser. Unique property in a serene location. Has to be seen to be believed!
