Mwandi is a beautiful, neat and well maintained place to stay. At night you can hear the sound of many animals. Good food. Friendly staff. Beautiful sunset over the Chobe river. Camp on green grass not on sand like most campsites in Botswana - TripAdvisor
We stayed in one of the tented accommodation units & absolutely loved it! Anton and Amelia were lovely hosts and gave us loads of great information about Chobe and the surrounding areas. They helped us book game drives and cooked us delicious food. We couldn't recommend Mwandi View enough, the views are spectacular and we loved our holiday there. - TripAdvisor
After a long day of travelling, this was the perfect place to rest. Everything was clean, comfy and well equipped. The hosts were very helpful and welcoming, we got the impression they help a lot of stranded travellers too! - TripAdvisor
Very nice room and bed, we took the family room, very clean and comfortable, the restaurant is nice with great home made food, the sunset views are amazing with drink, great for a rest stay before Savuti. Recommend it! - TripAdvisor
Super nice tents with amenities and great views. Beautiful common area with terrace and swimming pool. Wi-Fi is offered only during the night 06:00 06:00 and often does not work. After we had asked because we needed it for more bookings but nice it was switched on for us - Booking.com
Super service from the owner personally. Low season - were the only guests. Received after Savuti and Khwai valuable tips for our onward journey. Food was tasty, nice deck overlooking the Savannah. Beds are good. Beds in tents, which are built on a deck with an additional roof. On the deck, there's a small room with shower and WC. Simple but nice and clean. Everything as expected - Booking.com
Stunning views, great place to stop on the way to/from Savuti - Booking.com
Dream location of the lodge with spectacular views. Ideally situated for excursions COBE River drive, Savuti, Namibia. The perfect host of u Chef Anton. Despite the absence of the Manager we were properly treated u in the Bush. Unfortunately, we have only not seen a Leopard, everything else. That's wildlife. We liked everything! - Booking.com
Mwandi is a piece of paradise. Comfortable and clean accommodation and excellent food. I will return there and recommend it to anyone. - SafariNow
We camped at Mwandi View in July 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Anton and Amelia went out of their way to make us feel at home. Their facilities and food are top notch. There is an amazing birdlife. Hearing a lion roar about 100m from the camp 2 nights out of three was really special. They are ideally situated to use as a base to explore the surrounding areas or to use as a stop-over. We will be back as soon as we can. - SafariNow
It was a lovely stay, good food and location - SafariNow
Thank you to our hostess for the most enjoyable suppers.The food was prepared with love and passion - SafariNow

Area Info

The Chobe Enclave is home to the Ba-Subia – ruled by a King and various Chiefs.

Although Setswana is the official native language of Botswana, Subia is the unique language of the area. The locals farm predominantly with cattle and goats and there are no restrictions of the animal movements. Care is to be taken on the roads, especially at night when livestock and wildlife alike seek the warmth of the bitumen.

Botswana’s tourism months coincide with the seasons – when the rain starts falling around mid-November, most animals migrate from the Chobe to the Okavango Delta, this is generally the ‘low’ season. When the rain stops and the grass starts drying off around April/May, the animals migrate back to the Chobe. This is generally referred to as the ‘peak’ season – although June to September are the best game viewing months.

Northern Botswana is a high risk Malaria area. Foot and Mouth Disease is an ongoing issue – veterinary check-points are in place to assist in the prevention of this disease – be vigilant of the food-stuff you transport from North to South and vice versa.

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.
