Elephant Valley Lodge

Chobe National Park, Botswana

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

We like the removed location of this camp and feel it offers value for the Chobe region. The boat cruises on the Chobe River are really interesting. There is a waterhole in camp that attracts animals. This is good because the lodge is far from the park, so it takes extra time to get there, before the real action starts.

Elephant Valley Lodge is surrounded by the peaceful wilderness of the African bush.  It lies in a unique position over-looking the Lesoma Valley in the Chobe District, which is home to the largest population of African elephant in the world.  

At Elephant Valley Lodge guests will enjoy activities including daily 4 x 4 game viewing safaris and boat cruises along the Chobe River in Chobe National Park.  The Lodge has 20 spacious accommodation tents with tea and coffee making facilities, fan, electric blankets in winter, hair dryers, charging points plus en-suite shower and toilet. Eight tents have views over the valley towards the water hole and twelve tents are nestled around the lush forest lawns and swimming pool. Sturdy acacia trees form large canopies of shade over the main communal areas and forest tents. The new rim-flow pool is perfect for a refreshing dip and relaxation on the sun loungers. A traditional out-door ‘boma’ serves evening meals and a game viewing platform brings you closer to the valley’s wildlife­. An attractive open lounge with bar and upper viewing deck is connected to the dining areas.

All these facilities have magnificent views over-looking the valley and water-hole.  The waterhole attracts a wide variety of game, particularly elephant, but also giraffe, buffalo, antelope such as waterbuck and kudu, warthogs, honey badgers, jackal, mongoose, predators including leopard, lion, hyena, wild dogs and many more species.
