Chobe National Park

Chobe Elephant Camp

In the vast flatness that is Botswana any vantage point is like gold and Chobe Elephant Camp has struck the mother lode. On a rocky hilltop with the Chobe River below, the endless plains of the Kalahari Basin disappear into the horizon: the sense of timeless space is worth a pocketful of gold any day.

Opting for a more stately imprint, perhaps complimenting its commanding view, Chobe Elephant Camp eschews the standard timber and thatch tented camp style so popular in Botswana and East Africa. Instead you can expect rough-finished sandstone walls, corrugated tin roofs, timber beams, polished floors and a quirky old-world farmstead feel that is right at home in the African bush.

Accommodation at Chobe Elephant Camp is in huge chalets well-spaced along the ridge and each one taking in that magnificent view. Rustic-looking they may be but inside they are anything but. Luxurious beds, en suite bathrooms - complete with indoor and outdoor showers - and a private deck turn your room into a palace. The screed floors, sand-filled walls and deep shade provide natural cool in the Kalahari.

The main lodge also salutes the glorious view with seating areas galore including a large wooden deck in front and teak Morris chairs and day beds from which to enjoy both view and icy drink. With just 24 guests at any time, dining is an elaborate table d'hôte affair made less formal by using individual tables.

And then we have the wildlife. Chobe Elephant Camp, as the name so succinctly implies, is where you come to see elephants. And lions, leopards, wild dogs, buffalos, hyenas, giraffes, hippos, crocodiles, vultures, roan and sable antelope, birds by the bucketload and much, much more. Guided game drives and river safaris happen twice a day and you can also visit the local village and take a guided walk through the bush.
