Elephant Valley Lodge lies between the Chobe National Park in Botswana and the equally impressive Matetsi wildlife conservancy, south of the Kazangula border crossing and within the Kasane Forest Reserve.
The lodge overlooks an extremely active waterhole, and a game viewing hide provides the perfect place to sit and watch the wildlife. Other activities include morning boat cruises along the Chobe River or a game drive in the Kasane Forest Reserve, or exploring the Chobe National Park in an open game vehicle, and stopping for a late afternoon sundowner along the river to capture the sunset on camera.
The Chobe National Park is most famous for its elephant population. Today, it is home to an estimated 100,000 elephants - which is believed to be the highest concentration of elephants to be found anywhere in the world. But it is not only elephants that live here in huge numbers - huge herds of buffalo, zebra and lechwe (a type of antelope) are also common sightings, and with such large numbers it isn't hard to spot the predators lying in wait. Lion are never far away and are often seen in large prides, lazing around in the shade during the heat of the day and slowly awakening themselves at dusk. Hyena, leopard and cheetah can also be found here.
The camp comprises 20 'meru' style luxury safari tents and can accommodate a maximum of 40 guests. There are 12 Forest Tents (including one Family Tent) in the shady canopy of trees surrounding the swimming pool, and 8 Valley Tents which have views overlooking the valley and waterhole.
The main lodge area has a lounge and outdoor dining area (boma), where dinner is taken al fresco under the African starry night. There is also a curio/gift shop and a swimming pool.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
