Ugandas Chobe Safari Lodge, owned and operated by the Madhvani Groups Marasa Africa, has put the country in the spotlight when CNNGo, in its annual listing of the 10 Spas with the most amazing views, has rated Chobe in a very respectable 5th position.
Overlooking the white waters of the River Nile, the Spa offers floor to ceiling windows for its users and permits a view over the three tier swimming pool to the river and the forest on the other shores.
Equipped to the most demanding standards with state of the art machines, the Spa and health club has become a favourite meeting point for lodge residents, wishing to work off some of the extra calories ingested with the fabulous gourmet meals, which start with breakfast and stretch across the day till dinner time.

The lodge is located in the upper part of Murchisons Falls National Park in the midst of a riverine rain forest and offers commanding news across and down the Nile, which rushes by giving a wild water spectacle of the highest order. The location allows for spectacular bird watching but also for to see the rarer forest mammals otherwise hard to find in the lower part of the park nearer to Lake Albert. Fishing on the river too is rated top in Uganda as increasing competitions held at Chobe are testifying to.
The news are welcome as Uganda has been named as Destination 2012 by the Lonely Planet Guide Book Company, dramatically increasing enquiries from abroad for holidays and safari in The Pearl of Africa. Good news, gladly told and congratulations of course to Chobe Safari Lodges management and staff and everyone at Marasa Africa. Visit www.katonatours.com for more details, tariffs and bookings.
