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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
