Opening in March 2018
Situated on the Namibian banks of the Chobe river, Serondela Lodge is facing the world renowned 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 enjoy spectacular views with endless photographic opportunities.
Just 17km from Kasane but far enough to ensure exclusivity the guest will be part of the positive impact of sustainable tourism on this incredibly beautiful area which is situated within a very dynamic conservancy.
The Lodge is a JV between the Kabulabula conservancy and the Micheletti family who already operate 2 other lodges in the Linyanti area of Namibia.
All of the ventures are a part of the successful and award winning conservancy program, supported by IRDNC and WWF Namibia.

Why our lodge?
A natural choice
The 17km distance from Kasane and the position in front of the Chobe NP ensures the wild and exclusive experience than most of the lodges in the area have lost.
Best room view!
All the rooms are on high ground overlooking the banks of the Chobe river. The south West facing balconies look into the renewed Serondela area, famous for big herds of Elephants and many other animals that come to feed and drink.
Having only 8 rooms, the guest at Serondela will have a dedicated service with a smile.
Serondela will be managed by Laura and Simone who after many years at Nkasa Lupala Lodge will now starting this new adventure. This will ensure the same warm welcome and passionate attention.
Sustainable tourism practice!
Today’s travellers are very conscious of their impact on the environment and on their role in the Socio-cultural sustainability, which means minimising negative impacts and focusing on more positive ones, such as promoting cultural exchange and preserving local traditions.
Serondela Lodge is in partnership with Kabulabula conservancy and part of the WWF and IRDNC JV program.
