A herd of elephants trudges the well-worn path from Zimbabwe’s miombo woodlands through the Chobe region, pausing at the riverfront, and on into arid Namibia before returning again. Elephant Valley Lodge lies along this route, deep in the Kasane Forest and adjacent to the Chobe National Park.
The Chobe region is home to the largest continuous surviving elephant population in the world. Witness these gentle giants in their natural habitat, lumbering around and playfully spraying water from their trunks. Traditional morning and evening game drives take you through the Chobe National Park, while a boat cruise along the Chobe River reveals its riverbank inhabitants. Indulge in a sundowner as the nocturnal creatures get ready to rise and make their way to the waterhole.
The lodge consists of 20 Meru-style Tents, situated in the shade of a forest of sturdy acacia trees. Each Tent comes complete with an en-suite bathroom, twin beds, and mini-safe. The main lodge comprises a comfortable lounge, bar area, and dining room with indoor and outdoor tables. The swimming pool is a cool retreat from the heated afternoons.
