General

  • Set along the Chobe River in an area of game viewing and birdwatching
  • Book bungee jumping, river cruises, game drives and more on site
  • Pool, bar and restaurant

When you were a nipper – or indeed an adult sitting bored on a bus – did you wistfully dream of some day being on big game safari in the depths of Africa?

If you haven't managed it thus far – or if you have and sensibly want to manage it all over again – do so among the peace, first-rate facilities and splendid sights from family-run Mwandi View, in the Chobe District in Botswana's north west. The traditional village of Kavimba is four kilometres to the south east, with a sealed road running all the way to the site.

Game viewing is simple from Mwandi View because of its setting along the Chobe River and among three of the country's main migration routes: zebra and hippos are often seen here, elephants lumber alongside and water buck come down to drink at the river every evening. It's 18 kilometres from more wildlife watching at the Chobe National Park, and enroute to Savuti and the Okavango Delta, in an area known for its prolific birdlife and spectacular sunsets.

Another splendid feature is Mwandi's ease for booking activities round and about this wildlife haven: the owners use local operators so they can support the local community, for a range of active days out including bungee jumping, river cruises, elephant rides, whitewater rafting, day and night game drives, mokoro trips and bush walks.

Back at base is an infinity pool for lazy days, a bar and a restaurant serving breakfasts, lunches and dinners sorted by the site chef. Fishing and free wifi are also available.

Mwandi View is shaded by Natal mahogany trees and has a washing-up area, showers and toilets. Barbecues and campfires are both allowed.

Please note

Facilities/activities including game drives, river cruises, day trip to Vic falls are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

    Anton and Amelia made us very welcome. Mwandi View was not at it’s best due to the drought but was still very pleasant- sitting at the bar watching the zebra graizing and the hippo pool and cooling off with an occasional dip in the pool.

Thanks for your review. It was great having fellow Auzzies here. We were sad though that you could not experience Mwandi View with lovely green lawns and trees with much more shade. Hopefully the rain will come at the end of the year and transform this barren landscape into it full beauty
Kind regards

Local attractions

What lush land is this for getting out into the outdoors, to the local national parks and their hiking trails, or by river or vehicle into the depth of the local landscape. Bungee jumping, rafting, bush walks, drives and more are are available to book on site; ask the Mwandi View team for details of what's on offer.

The Ngoma gate and the entrance to Chobe National Park are about 18 kilometres to the north east. Chobe, Botswana's first national park and the third biggest in size, has four main areas (river, two marshes and arid hinterland) and is known for its high elephant population: around 50,000 wander here, possibly the biggest number in all of Africa. Also look out for cheetahs, hippos, jackals, giraffes, buffalo and thousands of birds.

For a more restful afternoon, a golf course is within 15 minutes' drive. The Chobe Crocodile Farm at Kazungula is within the same distance; from here, district centre Kasane is 12 kilometres.

Additional terms

The locals farm predominantly with cattle and goats and there are no restrictions of animal movements. Care is to be taken on the roads, especially at night when livestock and wildlife alike seek the warmth of the bitumen.

Northern Botswana is a high-risk malaria area. Foot and mouth disease is an ongoing issue and veterinary checkpoints are in place to assist in the prevention of this disease. Be vigilant of the foodstuff you transport, and comply with local regulation.

Due to the intense heat, October is known as the 'suicide' month - there are many challenges associated with driving in thick sand during this month. Please bear this in mind when booking.
