Appreciate the eco-design behind Chobe Elephant Camp in Botswana’s Chobe National Park, a new luxury safari camp made entirely from sandbags and in line with sustainable tourism accommodation ethics. Luxury tented accommodation takes on new meaning thanks to its thick walls filled with the red Kalahari sands to create a natural barrier against the harsh African climate and enhance the old farm-style feel of the luxury Botswana accommodation at Chobe Elephant Camp.
Find this unique eco safari destination high on the edge of a rocky ridge overlooking the famous Chobe River and close to the Chobe National Park entrance. River cruises and game drives offer guests an authentic African adventure into untouched wilderness areas. And the recycled building ideas of reusing wood and the thick sandbag walls control temperatures naturally with cool interiors in summer and warmth in winter. This camp is ideal for budget-conscious travellers who have a green conscious and want to revel in the peace of a pristine environment.
Chobe Elephant Camp offers authentic wildlife viewing activities such as game drives and game walks or a visit to the local Subuya Tribe for an impressive cultural experience. Take a thrilling boat cruise on the Chobe River and wander around Kasane for a change of scenery.
Always return to a room with indoor and outdoor showers, one of 12 exquisite suites designed to absorb the views of the Chobe River in all directions from your private deck, or the comfy lounge. Stroll down to the bar with its neat, polished floors, the farmhouse style lounge with its soft sofas and intentionally weathered homely design.
Grab a drink, dive into the swimming pool, and gather for meals – and still the river views are there, the elephant herds, lion kills and charismatic Fish eagles. Wherever you go and whatever you do around the camp, notice how every effort is being made to reduce the carbon footprint, never compromising on your comfort as a paying, ethical guest.
