Chobe River Camp Questions & Answers


Hi. Just wondering if someone could help me with directions to the camp? I will be coming from Ngepi. Google maps tells me to cross the bridge on the B8 then enter the camp from the other side of the river? (Presumably by boat transfer from the camp) But I'm not sure if this requires crossing into Botswana? I can see dirt roads that would take you to the camp if you exit the B8 just before the river, does anyone have any experience with the condition of these?

Also does the camp have Braai facilities? Or is all food supplied by the camp?

Hi, Thank you all very much for your contributions. Sure, you have to call the camp for directions and to pick you up.

Chobe River Camp has a restaurant and does not have braai facilities. Kindly visit our website to check the phone number for the camp, It is unfortunate that TripAdvisor does not allow us to share contact information.

Best wishes with your journey,

Kind regards,

No do not cross the bridge Google is wrong, you must enter camp from the Namibian side. How depends on the season. When waterlevels are very high you can only get to the camp by boat. Then you park the car at the policestation on the Namibian side of the bridge, just where the bridge starts. Rest of the year you can go by car. It is a dirt road but not too bad. Just before you get to the bridge that will take you into Botswana you will see the signs for Chobe River Camp on your left side.

If you stay at the camping area you will find Braai facilities. If you stay at the tents you will have to eat in the restaurant.

Chobe River Camp is a wounderfull place, we were there for 5 days in november last year (dry season) and enjoyed every minute.

I know waterlevels have been very high this year so contact camp before arrival and ask them how you will get there.

Whises you a wonderfull time :-)

Hi. Just travel to the border post at Ngoma and park your vehicle at the Police station. I visited the camp end if last month and it was flooded. I parked my vehicle at the Police station and called the Camp to pick me up. They came with a vehicle and we drove to the bridge. From the bridge they transported us with a boat to the camp. The tented rooms do not have braai facilities and the camping side was totally flooded. They do have a restaurant and do provide breakfast, lunch and dinner.
