Elephant Valley Lodge Description
Nestled under the trees of the Kasane Forest reserve, between the Chobe National Park and the Matetsi wildlife conservancy, Elephant Valley Lodge is a traditional tented camp. There are 20 meru style safari tents, situated in well-manicured lawns or along the valley edge. Each tent has en-suite bathrooms, tea and coffee making facilities, fan and a private covered deck to relax on.
The camp is fenced, with the elephants walking along the perimeter to get to the waterhole at the lodge. The lodge has a swimming pool for guests to cool off in and a traditional boma for dinners under the stars. The lodge also has bush dinners set up away from the lodge. The main building is under towering thatched ceilings decorated in the traditional African theme. From the main building the lounge and bar are found, with inside and outside seating in this peaceful location.
Elephant Valley Lodge Game Viewing and Wildlife Activities
Morning boat cruises are popular at Elephant Valley Lodge. Along the Chobe River, the morning cruise is along a less populated river giving guests better game viewing opportunities. Game drives in the afternoon to Chobe National Park gives guests a traditional safari experience in open safari vehicles with guides who know the area well. Guests are also able to explore the mighty Victoria Falls in Zambia or Zimbabwe, only an hour’s drive away. There are many activities at Victoria Falls to fill up a day with ease.
The Chobe area of Botswana is home to the largest elephant population in the world, with numbers reaching to 120,000! Elephants follow certain paths on their search for water and food, one of which takes them right to Elephant Valley Lodge’s very own waterhole. Antelope and other game also frequent this waterhole.
