Overview

Chobe Elephant Camp is located high on the edge of a rocky ridge overlooking the famous Chobe River in Chobe National Park, northern Botswana. This uniquely designed lodge has been built to take advantage of the incredible views whilst also being a new ‘eco-style’ camp.

The main areas are open plan and spacious and include a cosy lounge area, bar, dining area and reading corner. Outside, there is a small swimming pool, outdoor boma and a great viewing deck over a private waterhole.

12 ensuite rooms are designed using recyclable materials and Kalahari sand to be as friendly to the environment as possible. To preserve the atmosphere of a traditional farmstead, the rooms are full of exposed beams, weathered furniture and polished floors. All rooms are ensuite with both indoor and outdoor showers and a private verandah to take advantage of the stunning views.

Activities are centred around game drives as the wildlife in this area really is excellent; large herds of elephant, giraffe and zebra as well as lions and leopards. You can also organise boat trips, nature walks and trips to local villages. A full day trip to Victoria Falls can also be requested upon booking

Chobe Elephant camp is a lovely mid-range camp with a rustic, natural feel. An authentic stay away from large, commercial ventures this is a reliably good choice.

For families, Chobe Elephant Camp has a low minimum age of 2, a small swimming pool and a 2 bedroom family chalet (both bedrooms with en-suite and situated either side of a lounge area). There is no specific family program but the Camp welcomes children and looks after them well and would certainly suit more adventurous families on a more limited budget. Like so many camps in Botswana, Chobe Elephant Camp is not fenced and dangerous wildlife can wander through Camp. For this reason parents must keep children under close supervision and we do not feel it is suitable for those with much younger or less controllable kids.

  • Everything worked perfectly! We all found our trekking experience to be the best part of our adventures in Morocco. We were particularly pleased with our guide, Hussain; he did a brilliant job. He is thoughtful, knowledgable, and sweet. He represents you well.

  • Thanks for organising an excellent holiday for us. It's my first time using Tourdust and I've been really impressed and will certainly be recommending you to friends and family. You provided an excellent level of service all the way through, and the bespoke nature of the trip was fantastic whilst being really good value for money.
    Key highlights:
    - Le Kasbah de Toubkal blew us away - one not to miss!
    - The trek was amazing and my kids loved it. The camping was really fun, the food was excellent, and I'd particularly call out our guide Rashid who was fantastic show especially with my kids.
    - Riad Adore was outstanding - far exceeding my expectations - it was beautiful and we were very well looked after
    - Le Doux Tour was luxurious and a nice relaxing way to end the holiday.
    - Logistics were great and our main driver Mustapha was brilliant

    If there was one build / thing I would change, it's a very small one but some candles / lanterns to use in the evening whilst camping would have made it easier to stay outside for a bit longer.

    MissingMark Dilley reviewing Boutique Marrakech & Atlas Mountains on 07 June 2016

  • Truly another world. The sky was enormous and the summits snow covered. Blue irises, wild herbs and fruit trees flowered on the slopes. Even as I toiled up the dry river bed I gazed in admiration.

    Without exception, everyone was courteous and welcoming. Food was good ( and far too plentiful); accommodation clean. Above all-everything worked! A pick-up was promised for 9.00am. At 8.55 the doorbell rang. Impeccable.

    No praise is too high for the organisation and staff. I am definitely going back.
