Chobe River Camp Gondwana Collection Namibia

Your room category:
Tented Chalet Double PP (BB)

Where else is there such a scenario? After about 1,500 kilometres through Angola, Zambia and Botswana, the Chobe River flows right past our camp. Well, not quite by chance, because this blissful spot, where elephant families and whole herds of zebra, buffalo and antelope gather to bathe, seemed to us the best place to set up camp. And so it came to be: ecologically built, the camp’s comfortable tented chalets blend into the river landscape. A place for the senses, dead quiet except for a soft splash and the songs when birds hold weddings, which they actually always do, only especially in the morning. Before you slip into a coma, though, it’s stalking time. Just around the corner – a pride of lions away, so to speak – is the wild realm of Chobe National Park, officially home to the largest density of elephants in Africa. The great kudu resides here, buffalo, blue wildebeest, plains zebra, giraffe, impala and after a deadly lunch the white-backed vulture cleans up the remains. Another goosebump experience announces itself with incomparably more noise. It is the sound that can be heard for miles around when ten million liters of water plunge 110 meters into the depths. Per second, mind you. Not suitable for showering, but at the “largest water curtain on earth”, you will get wet even so. Welcome to Victoria Falls.
