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.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
