Camp Chobe accommodation is tented huts on stilts. Which they need to be because elephants and hippos frequently swim the Linyati River (which feeds the Chobe River). (The far bank is a section of Chobe game reserve, Botswana. With substantial wildlife including elephants, hippos, and crocodiles which love the water). These animals siesta on the Botswana bank during the day....

Friendly staff and good facilities that need a bit of maintenance. The beds were very comfortable and the location of the camp is very scenic. There is excellent game viewing across the Chobe River on the Botswana side, like elephant, hippo, giraffe, etc, from the comofort of one's porch on the Namibian side. It was a very relaxing stay and...

We called ahead for advice about how to get to the camp and the response wasn't very helpful. The camp is poorly signposted and road that we took (following instructions as well as we could understand them) took us into deep water (literally). This spoiled our experience as by the time we got there we were a bit freaked and...

We visited camp chobe on the namibia side over Christmas. Excellent accommodation. Is quiet if you want time out. Really relaxing. Cuts you off totally from hustle and bustle. Nature conscious - recycled water - solar powered energy. Sometime animals can be seen drinking from the river. Great for camping or chalet type (camp) accommodation. If there's rain - you...

We stayed at Camp Chobe in late September 2016, for 3 fabulous memorable nights. The position of our elevated spacious, tastefully decorated tent (no 10) was just great to watch the sunrise & sunset over the mighty Chobe River, a wonderful start & end to each day. Gordon, the manager, was most helpful if needed as were all the staff....

Nice campground with a beautiful view over the river bed. As we arrived we saw about 25 elefants going past the camp towards the water. The toilets and the water in the shower have a funny smell. Nice bar area with very slow Internet, depending on size of people online. Someone either from inside or the nearby village was in...

I am glad you enjoyed Camp Chobe. The campsite belong to the conservancy and because of problems we decided to help and to up lift the campsite. I am sorry about the stealing it is a problem lately, but lucky with the help of the conservancy and the police they caught the thieves and they are now behind bars.

Situated meters from the Chobe river. Otters swimming every morning. Thousands of zebras eating on the plains in front of us. Wild dog, hyena, elephant buffalo walking the plains. Bird life that will blow your mind. Thousands of pelicans, open bills, jacanas, sandpipers and more. It is paradise. Extremely hospitable hosts. Fantastic bar and restaurant. Camp facilities are spotless with...

I have to say in advance that our standards dropped a bit when we arrived here because we just came from Zimbabwe. That been said, we really loved it here! The campsite is separate from the camp and really spacious with private ablutions. We also did a sunset boat safari which was great as well. Well organized, lovely scenery and...

I really did enjoy my overnight stay in this permanent tent on stilts with eco chic decor. The shower had good pressure and piping hot. The sunrise was simply stunning. The bar is also very welcoming. I highly recommend this place

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
