Cheerful Chobe Camp

Absolutely excellent staff who entertained us with native music one night and the second night they sang to us to come to dinner, very special.

Jeremy, our guide really looked after us well. Great game viewings, boat trip along the Chobe river and picnic meals.

Rustic style accommodation with all the comforts including a hottie for cooler nights.

Good camp, easy access to Chobe

This was the second camp we visited on our trip, while there is absolutely nothing negative I can say about it the camp didn’t have quite the same feel as our lodge in the delta. It was welcoming, good food, and excellent access to Chobe but slightly lacked the atmosphere.

Chobe Elephant Camp review

This camp is not so luxury as the others of our trip. You have everything you need in your room and the staff is very friendly.
Very nice the dinner at long tables, getting in contact to the other guests.
The knowledge of the guides is really very good. They tried everything, that we can see a lot of animals. We were lucky and saw wild dogs.

Exceptional time on our first safari

We stayed 3 nights at Chobe Elephant camp and had a fantastic time.

We went in what was meant to be he rainy season in march but it hadn't rained in 8 weeks. The wildlife was incredible and included an incredible lion hunt and kill. Our guide gabby was super friendly and informative.

The staff were all very friendly and made a huge sing and dance out of my birthday. It really felt like home after a few days.

Chobe Elephant Camp

Lots,of opportunity for game drives. The boat trip was excellent and certainly a highlight. The family chalet worked really well for us and our two kids, even though the thrashing of the elephants seemed only a few feet away.

The staff singing at dinner was really enjoyable and a very special treat. We even got into the dancing.

Our guide was excellent, taking the time to point out birds and trees along with all the big animals. Very knowledgeable and personable.

Animals sited: lions, giraffes, impala, elephants, hippos, crocodiles, baboons, Cape buffalo, kudu, water bucks, jackals, hyena, zebra, puff adder.
Birds sited: lots of birds - 89 species recorded

Authentic Experience with great guide

We enjoyed our stay at Choebe Elephant Camp. It is a rustic yet comfortable property.

We thoroughly enjoyed our safaris with "Innocent" our very informative guide. Also the boat trip was really special.

An area that requires some improvement is the food offerings at lunch. A sandwich of lettuce, cheese and some sauce was really below par. The staff were very informal and pleasant. Meals at other sittings were adequate.

Great stay at the aptly named elephant camp

The camp had a good atmosphere and the place was truly well named. We were awakened in the middle of the night by two adult elephants and a baby grazing happily right outside our chalet. Amazing!

There was a good atmosphere in the camp and the activities, particularly the river cruise on the Chobe were amazing.

Great stay at Chobe Elephant Camp

The staff, location and rooms at Chobe Elephant Camp were amazing.

The Camp sits overlooking towards the Delta across to Namibia. The views are fantastic.

We had a group of Elephants walk across the bottom of the hill one morning it was a great way to wake up.

The staff are very helpful and generous with their time.

Chobe Elephant Camp

Kind of a rugged place but very nice. Great views. Food was fine, service fine. Guide was terrific (Gee was his name).

We could use the Internet for a few minutes as needed in the office (on someone's private computer). Be prepared for the rough game rides (if you have back or neck issues, I'd look for a different terrain).

The boat safari was the highlight.
