Passionate about Botswana's natural treasures, the Chobe river floodplain area always had a special appeal to our bush-lover's eyes. Chobe Elephant Camp sprung from a desire to provide an authentic wilderness experience in Chobe, away from the increasing number of visitors concentrating in the Eastern side of the park, and in close collaboration with those who have grown up in these unique surroundings and are immensely enthusiastic about introducing their home to international travellers.
With a spectacular position overlooking the Chobe river floodplain, Chobe Elephant Camp takes full advantage of the land offering a fantastic feeling of wide open space from your very first step through the doors.
Providing a simultaneously rustic and stylish feel, Chobe Elephant Camp was designed to minimise at best its carbon footprint, providing a genuinely eco-friendly gateway to the surrounding natural wonders.
The 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.
With 12 rooms, Chobe Elephant Camp can comfortably accommodate 24 guests. All 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.
Based in the semi-arid bush of Africa there is always the challenge of extreme temperature variations and how to combat this. The solution came in one of earths’ great insulators – the sand. The lodge has been entirely constructed from sandbags, the thick sand-filled walls create a natural insulating barrier between the inhabitants and the harsh African climate and enhance the old farm-style feel of the camp.
Keeping the environment in mind, the development has focused on renewable resources wherever possible. From ensuring that all the construction timber and furniture is manufactured from renewable wood sources or from reclaimed wood, to using the sun’s energy to heat the water, Chobe Elephant Camp makes every effort to keep its carbon footprint as small as possible, while at the same time never compromising guest comfort.
