Chobe Elephant Camp overview

Chobe Elephant Camp is set on a loft bluff above the Chobe River just a few minutes’ drive from the entrance to the national park. There are expansive views of the floodplains from all parts of the lodge, making it a memorable place to stay for your safari.  Staff provide a warm welcome which includes a song and dance and a drink!

The attractive chalets have polished wooden floors, ceiling beams and rustic furniture, coupled with modern comforts and conveniences. All have a private bathroom with contemporary fittings and both indoor and outdoor showers. Sandbags in the thick walls provide effective insulation from the heat of summer and the cold of winter. The balcony has far reaching views across the plains to Namibia and you’ll pass many pleasant moments here.

Communal areas include the restaurant and the high-ceilinged lounge-cum-bar, where you’ll encounter other guests and can swap travellers’ tales over a chilled beer. There’s a quiet corner where you can catch up with some reading and a plunge pool with a viewing deck overlooking a waterhole. The camp fire is lit just before sundown each evening, and this is the perfect spot from which to watch the sunset, drink in hand. You can also come back here after dinner for some star gazing and to mingle with other guests.

Based at Chobe Elephant Camp your days will be filled with game drives, and boat safaris in the east of the park, and wildlife spotting under expert guidance. Nature walks in the neighbouring Forest Reserve are popular, as are visits to the local village of the Sibuya tribe, for an insight into their daily lives.

This is a simple camp but has wonderful staff ad services, it has great food and great game viewing activities, and the rooms have everything you need for an excellent safari experience!
