Located high on the edge of a rocky ridge overlooking the famous Chobe River is the newly developed Chobe Elephant Camp. This uniquely designed lodge has been built to take advantage of the incredible views overlooking the sweeping floodplains while offering a comfortable refuge from the harsh African conditions. 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. Be it the spectacular wildlife that the Chobe River is famous for, or the opportunity to interact with the local Sibuya Tribe who live within this wildlife haven, Chobe Elephant Camp offers its guest a true African adventure. 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. With a variety of activities that include viewing the regions spectacular wildlife from open safari vehicles, by boat on the Chobe River, along with excursions to the nearby village to get introduced to the local culture, a visit to Chobe Elephant Camp offers a wide range of experiences to our guests. Accessible by air via Kasane Airport, Victoria Falls or Livingstone Airports or by road from Savuti, Caprivi or Kasane the lodge is ideally positioned to fit into most safari itineraries.

Dear Elizabeth, No Chobe Elephant Camp is own by Bush Ways. And yes, it's a different lodge to Savuti Elephant Lodge. Our lodge is situated on the western side of the Chobe NP, outside of the park. Best regards,

I was there in May, so it was relatively cool, however, all the rooms are equipped with air conditioning units. You won't have a problem with the heat by any means. instagram: travelyaps
