CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
Chobe camping is an unforgettable experience inside the Chobe National park. There are public and tour operator campsites located inside the Chobe. Any traveller or visitor is allowed to make use of the public campgrounds. These are limited and very popular. We do advise that you book well in advance. The Tour operator campsites are located within the bush and perfect for a mobile safari.
Travellers with no 4x4 experience are recommended to partake on a guided mobile safari. Local guides and local companies have excellent knowledge of the wildlife and the Chobe park. When you join a local safari company, you will most likely be staying in a wild bush camp. The public camp offers showers and toilets and water. It is however still recommended to carry your water, firewood and meals.
Animals are wild and do roam free inside the Chobe national park. Please consider this when camping at the public campsites in the Chobe park. We do recommend that no food is left out at your campsite. This attracts wildlife and can create some uncomfortable experiences. When leaving your campsite during the day, we recommend storing all food and rubbish safely.
We do recommend that you join a local mobile safari company when visiting Chobe National Park. There are many 4x4 two spoor track roads along with a high concentration of animals. Travellers with no experience can quickly get themselves into uncomfortable situations inside the park.
When visiting the Chobe Park, you are not allowed to leave the two spoor track roads. Please follow the rules and stay on the designated routes.
Ihaha Campsite is on the Chobe Riverfront. There are ten sites; the ablutions have flush toilets and hot showers powered by solar energy but no electricity at the sites. The campsite overlooks a hippo pool in the dry season while in the high water season the river is in full flow below the campground.
Savuti has 14 campsites with running water, ablutions with showers and flush toilets but no electricity. This is un-fenced from the park and guests need to be aware of the wildlife at all times. It is best to reach Savuti by 4×4 vehicle only and is about 4 hours from Kasane.
