Elephant Valley Lodge is surrounded by the peaceful wilderness of the African bush.  It lies in a unique position overlooking the Lesoma Valley in the Chobe District, which is home to the largest population of African elephant in the world.  The animals and birds move freely in the valley between the game-rich conservation areas of the neighbouring Chobe Game Reserve and the National Parks of Zimbabwe.

From the comfort and tranquillity of the lodge you can watch creatures great and small, dropping by for a thirst quenching drink at the Lodge’s waterhole.

At Elephant Valley Lodge guests will enjoy activities including daily 4 x 4 game viewing safaris and boat cruises along the Chobe River in Chobe National Park.  Day trips to the Victoria Falls either in Zambia or Zimbabwe can easily be arranged.

The lodge has 12 ‘forest tents’ in the shady canopy of trees surrounding the swimming pool.  One of these ‘forest tents’ is a family tent, which includes a second bedroom with twin beds and a large bathroom with bath and shower.  A further 8 ‘valley tents’ have views overlooking the valley and water hole.

All tents are spacious and comfortable with twin three-quarter beds which can be pushed together with a converter to make a double bed.  They all have en-suite shower, toilet and basins plus tea and coffee making facilities, fan, (electric blankets in winter), hairdryer and charging points.  They each have a veranda with seating so that you can relax outside your room and enjoy the views and amazing bird life.

Sturdy acacia trees form large canopies of shade over the main communal areas and forest tents. The new rim-flow pool is perfect for a refreshing dip and relaxation on the sun loungers. A traditional out-door ‘boma’ serves evening meals and a game viewing platform brings you closer to the valley’s wildlife­. An attractive open lounge with bar and upper viewing deck is connected to the dining areas. All these facilities have magnificent views overlooking the valley and waterhole.  The waterhole attracts a wide variety of game, particularly elephant, but also giraffe, buffalo, antelope such as waterbuck and kudu, warthogs, honey badgers, jackal, mongoose, predators including leopard, lion, hyena, wild dogs and many more species.

Enjoy a cacophony of night sounds, including the eerie hyenas, jackals barking and sometimes lion roaring in the valley, as you drift off to sleep after an exhilarating day of game viewing at Elephant Valley Lodge.

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. Morning boat cruises along the Chobe River will give guests close encounters with the elephants going for a morning drink, and afternoon game drive will let guests experience all the other sights and sounds in both the Chobe and Kasane Forest Reserve.
