- ‘Eco Style’ camp
- Authentic style
- Excellent wildlife
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.

We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

Hi Lisa, Thanks for your email! It was amazing thank you! We had the best time, everything ran smoothly (aside from a break-down due to faulty clutch on day 1 of the tour, but our guide / driver sorted that and we were back on track by that evening). Saw all the things we wanted to see, even a mum and cub cheetah. Our boys have had such a different holiday and a fab taste of the world! Thank you so much for organising this for us. We’d definitely recommend our guide/driver (Tuhafeni) and assistant (Frans) again. Nicola
