I can’t wait to tell you about Water Lily Lodge in Kasane Botswana. It was such a cute home base for all my safari adventures and I loved my stay here!
Many touristy spots in Africa offer luxury in the form of sprawling resorts. I’ll admit that I had planned to spend the end of my trip in Zambia relaxing at one of these, but while I was on safari I decided to stay in a local accommodation at this quaint hotel.
Water Lily Lodge, located in Kasane Botswana, sits on the gentle shores of the Chobe River. The lodge forms a circular structure, with the door to your room facing the center courtyard and the balconies and patios off your room facing the pool, gardens, or river. If you’re looking for a peaceful retreat to relax in between your game drives, then look no further. Built to accommodate no more than 20 visitors, the staff here get to know their guests and focus their attention solely on the quality of your stay.
My room wasn’t glamorous by any means but it was quiet, comfortable, and clean–a welcome escape for naps after our early dawn game drives. I had a view of the pool and frequently saw roaming warthogs along the Chobe River. The price per night was extremely affordable!
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner were available in their candle-lit dining room downstairs, or we could indulge ourselves by their poolside bar.
The lodge is fully equipped to organize your daily activities departing steps from your room, whether they are game drives into Chobe National Park, river safari cruises (do this!), or day trips to Victoria Falls. Located only 3 kilometers from Chobe National Park, I was able to wake up each day and be on a game drive within minutes. A perfect location for your stay if you plan to explore Chobe National Park.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Water Lily Lodge! I felt comfortable, relaxed, and taken care of. The staff even helped me plan my complicated taxi journey from Botswana through Zimbabwe to Zambia!
How about you, have you been to Botswana or on safari? What kind of hotel/hostel did you stay in? If you camped I want to hear all about it! That’s next on my list!
