Camp Chobe is situated in the Eastern Caprivi, merely 4km from the Ngoma border post between Botswana and Namibia, across the river from the world renowned Chobe nature reserve, home to one of the largest concentrations of elephant on the African continent.
Chobe National Park allow game to roam freely, the 11 700km² (4 500 square mile) reserve is located in the far north of Botswana, bordering on the Chobe River. Chobe is particularly well known for its large herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as the two antelope that cannot be encountered anywhere else in Botswana, the Puku and the Chobe bushbuck.
Covering approximately a third of the eastern portion of the Caprivi, the Zambezi and Chobe flood plains combines permanent waterways with drier areas, creating areas filled with unexpected contrasts and diverse wildlife. The Chobe flood plains are in a constant state of flux, expanding and contracting according to the rainy season. While some parts of the Chobe remain permanently flooded, others only experience high water levels from May to September, when rainwater from Zambia flow into the Zambezi and Chobe rivers.
Camp Chobe is located on these plains, with its tall mopane woodlands and spreading floodplains fringed with majestic Boabab trees, make it one of Africa's most scenic wilderness areas. Permanent swamp areas are lush and green, with papyrus and water lilies growing around deep lagoons lined with riverine forest that are dominated by jackalberry, mangosteen and sausage trees. Seasonal swamps, on the other hand, contain a network of small channels cutting their way through papyrus and reed beds to create islands of all shapes and sizes.
Gaze out over the flood plains from the elevated deck of the main building strategically situated on the edge or from the quiet comfort of the private lounge decks or the massive couches in the warm guest area. Tease and tantalise your taste buds watching the chefs at work in our open, interactive kitchen or savour the wholesome flavours of meals served in the dining room, with its sweeping views, or in a warm cluster around a crackling blaze in the open fire pit.
