SERENE FOREST RESERVE
Nestled Between Chobe & Matetsi Wildlife Conservancy
CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
Elephant Valley Lodge lies between the Chobe National Park in Botswana and the equally impressive Matetsi wildlife conservancy, south of the Kazangula border crossing and within the Kasane Forest Reserve (Lesoma Valley).
Chobe is home to the largest population of wild elephant in the world. This is estimated to be approximately 120000 individuals.
The Elephant Valley Lodge/camp comprises 20 ‘meru’ style luxury safari tents and can accommodate a maximum of 40 guests. The lodge overlooks an extremely productive water hole. Note that the perimeter of the camp has an electric fence to deter the many elephants that move through this area. Activities include daily safaris and boat cruises into the Chobe National Park which takes approximately 40 minutes from the lodge to the entrance of the Chobe National Park. The unique lodge location provides guests with game viewing opportunities throughout the day and night.
Free internet is available from the main lodge, with mobile reception in certain areas.
There is a distinct advantage when participating in the activities at Chobe Valley Lodge, namely, a morning cruise along the chobe river provides a less crowded Chobe River experience. Usually, the Chobe River can become rather busy during the alternate hours – sunset. This permits a longer river experience during the morning at The Elephant Valley Lodge. Activities in the region are not limited to wildlife viewing, and within hours drive from the lodge is one of the seven wonders of the world. the position of the lodge ensures that guests can view the falls either from the Zambian side or the Zimbabwean side of the falls.
