Serondela Lodge

Your wild Chobe experience.

Situated on the Namibian banks of the Chobe river, Serondela Lodge is facing the world renewed Chobe National Park. This will ensure all year round close encounters with free roaming wildlife to our guest. The 8 rooms situated facing the river will be enjoying spectacular views with endless photographic opportunities.

The Lodge is a JV between the Kabulabula conservancy and the Micheletti family already operating with 2 other lodges on the Linyanti river area of Namibia.

Just 17km from Kasane but far enough to ensure exclusivity the guest will be part and experience the positive impact of sustainable tourism to this incredibly beautiful area and dynamic conservancy.
