Elephant Valley Lodge
Elephant Valley Lodge is situated in the Kasane
Forest, which is adjacent to the Chobe National
Park. Open guest areas, a secluded hide, refreshing
swimming pool and 20 meru styled tents complete
the lodge which lies beneath a forest of sturdy knob
thorns. It is within these tree tops that the
largest colony of white back vultures occurs.
The lodge is unique for several
reasons and amongst these is the fact that it is
situated within a game rich reserve affording the
guests wonderful sightings between our open
landrover safaris into the Chobe and boat cruises
along the Chobe River.
The camp perimeter is fenced to
keep the elephant from moving through the camp,
instead now they move around the camp boundary,
along their well worn paths to and from the Chobe
River. Your tent also ensures that you are able to
hear the multitude of night sounds as you drift away
with vivid thoughts of the experiences of your day
Each of the tents features twin
beds, ensuite shower and toilet, mini safe and fan.
Guests at Elephant Valley are encouraged to join
resident qualified guides on both daily activities,
these include a river cruise along the Chobe River
in one of our spacious skimmers and an afternoon
safari from the comfort of a custom built game
viewer in the Chobe National Park.
