Activities

To explore the nature and wildlife of the Chobe National Park, game drives are conducted in the morning and at noon. Canoeing on the Chobe Floodplains and boat trips on the Chobe River allow you to explore the fascinating water worlds, but these activities are primarily based on the water level. If you are particularly interested in local culture and life, you can take a trip to the nearby village and gain an insight into the way of life of the villagers. If you book in advance, a day trip to the natural wonder of the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe is also possible.

Highlights

Guests of the environmentally friendly Chobe Elephant Camp are welcomed with an incredible view of the Chobe Riverfront on the border to Namibia. Built on an elevated embankment, the camp allows you to fully enjoy this view from various points – either from the communal pool or from your own veranda. The rustic charm of the camp, combined with comfort and the best service, will contribute to a wonderful safari stay. Stunning Chobe National Park is only a few minutes away. It offers an abundance of wildlife and in particular the largest elephant population in Africa.
