Safari Lifestyles View

The lodge sits in Lesoma Valley, which is part of the Kasane Forest reserve.

This is actually a very pretty lodge in a lovely wooded area right on the border with Zimbabwe. Not in a private concession as such, the area is quite secluded and there is plenty of game around, some of which attend the waterhole right outside camp.

The lodge does offer game drives in the Chobe National Park but it takes about 30 minutes to drive to the gate and I’m afraid that these drives take part in the same queue that all the day drives get involved with in Kasane.

Perhaps you are better off enjoying more time at the lodge watching local game rather than using the lodge as a platform for National Park game drives, however it is definitely worth taking up the option of a boat cruise on the Chobe River.

Wildlife

The Chobe region is home to the largest population of wild elephant in the world. This is estimated to be approximately 120,000 individuals. Their sometimes daily passage takes them from Zimbabwe through the Chobe and on into Namibia before returning. Elephant Valley Lodge lies along one of these routes and is situated in the Kasane Forest, which is adjacent to the Chobe National Park.

The Camp

Camp Overview

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. The camp comprises 20 ‘meru’ style luxury safari tents and can accommodate a maximum of 40 guests.

The lodge overlooks an extremely productive water hole. Activities include daily safaris and boat cruises into the Chobe National Park. The unique lodge location provides guests with game viewing opportunities throughout the day and night.

Lodge Layout

The main lodge is very African in styling being constructed of gumpole and thatch and include the following facilities:
Swimming pool
Lounge
Outdoor dining areas (Boma)
Curio / gift shop
Bush dinner venue
Game viewing hide at water hole

It certainly does feel quite quaint and is bigger than first impressions give you. Generaly speaking the main areas are very comfortable as a traditional bush lodge should be. The dinning area is quite large with plenty of tables.

Room Description

20 ‘MERU STYLED’ Tents are situated around well manicured lawns or along the edge of the valley. The camp perimeter is fenced to keep the elephants from moving through the camp, instead now they move around the camp boundary, along their well worn paths to and from the Chobe Rver. Your tent also ensures that you are able to hear the multitude of night sounds as you drift away with vivid thoughts of the experiences of your day on safari. Each of the tents features twin beds, en-suite shower and toilet, mini safe and fan.
