Located high on the edge of a rocky ridge overlooking the famous Chobe River is the Chobe Elephant Camp. Built from the same red Kalahari sands that dominate the northern part of Botswana, this eco-friendly lodge is ideally positioned to take advantage of everything this incredible destination has to offer.
During your stay at Chobe Elephant Camp you will hopefully get the opportunity to experience the big game safari in the custom built open Land Rovers and/or from a boat on the Chobe River. Nature walks will also give you the chance to get to get up close and personal with the smaller details of the African Bush. Finally a walk through the local village will give you a chance to learn about the culture and livelihoods of the local Sibuya tribe.
You will conduct all your activities with local professional guides. These trained professionals will help you to interpret the sounds, smells and sights of the bush and its inhabitants, as well as expose you to the culture of the local people and how they live in this wilderness.
Chobe Elephant Camp has been designed to capture the feel of the traditional farmstead located in the African wilderness. Polished floors, exposed wooden beams and weathered furniture capture the feel of rustic charm. Mix this with some contemporary style and the lodge has a unique feel of old meets new and offers the guests something different and unique.
All 12 rooms are en-suite with both indoor and outdoor showers. The whole lodge has been designed to take advantage of the spectacular views over the Chobe River, so whether you choose to relax on your private veranda, read a book in the lounge, have a drink at the bar or cool off in the pool, the vista will always be there to enjoy.

General Information For Guests
All rooms are en-suite with both indoor and outdoor showers, and have a private veranda. The special design of the chalets and the use of the red Kalahari sand, which creates a natural insulating barrier, means there is no need for high power consummating air conditioners.
The main lodge boasts a large open-plan main area featuring a cosy arrangement of couches along with a bar, dining area and reading corner and opens up onto an inviting boma area. From the main area, a small pathway leads down to the swimming pool with viewing deck onto a private waterhole.
All the construction timber and furniture in the chalets and in the main area was manufactured on site and are made from renewable wood sources or from reclaimed wood. All the lighting in the camp is low wattage LED lights, and the water is heated by solar energy. To ensure no pollutants enter into the underlying water table and floodplains Chobe Elephant Camp makes use of its own above ground sewerage treatment plant.
Activities include game drives in open safari vehicles, boat cruises on the Chobe River, and village visits - these are authentic experiences which show guests how people grow up and survive living amongst Africa's wild animals and it also educates the local communities about other cultures, as they get to interact.
