Me and my husband stayed in Camp Chobe over December 2012 and it was awesome.
It is an eco friendly lodge so we really felt like it was an escape from the big city with no computers and cars. If you want a bit of technology you can take your cell phone. You can also charge your cell phone if you take it with at the main reception are when the generator is on, but who needs phones, hairdryers ect when there is only animals, a river, trees and a plain?
The chalets are also beautiful and clean and it overlooks the river. With no gates on the windows/tents or door you really feel you are in the wild but with luxury.
The food was also fantastic. It was nice to have a 3 course meal that felt like home away from home.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Gaze over the flood plains and enjoy luxurious solitude on the banks of the Chobe River. Assuring extraordinary experiences, we offer 20 luxury tented chalets. The lodge was inspired by the natural beauty of the landscape and all chalets have been constructed using indigenous Mopane timber and canvas. This offers not only a stunning sight, but an environmentally conscious design. Expect a unique and wondrous experience when visiting the Camp. This region is Namibia’s very own version of the Serengeti and offers a rare experience. With a bit of luck you can see large herds of elephants, buffalo and antelope. Activities may be seasonal, but will always amaze and intrigue our guests. Chobe River Camp is a wildlife and birder’s dream and is the ideal place to break away, just across the river from the world renowned Chobe Nature Reserve, home to one of the largest concentrations of elephant on the African continent. The Camp is also the ideal place for day trips to Victoria Falls, located only 150km away. ... more less
