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 within the bush and perfect for a mobile safari.
Travellers with no 4x4 experience can best partake in a guided mobile safari. Local guides and local companies have excellent knowledge of the wildlife and Chobe park. When you join a local safari company, you will most likely be staying in a wild bush camp. The public centre 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 Chobe Park. We do recommend that no food is left unattended at your campsite. Food attracts wildlife and can create some uncomfortable experiences. When leaving your camp during the day, we recommend safely storing all food and rubbish.
We recommend that you join a local mobile safari company when visiting Chobe National Park. There are many 4x4 two spoor track roads and a high concentration of animals. Travellers with no experience can quickly get themselves into uncomfortable situations inside the park.
When visiting 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. The campsite overlooks a hippo pool in the dry season, while the river is in full flow below the campground in the high water season.
Savuti has 14 campsites with running water, ablutions with showers and flush toilets but no electricity. The camp is unfenced from the park, and guests need to be aware of the wildlife. It is best to reach Savuti by 4×4 vehicle only and is about 4 hours from Kasane.
Linyanti has only five campsites and is 39 km from Savuti. The Linyanti campsites overlook the Linyanti Marsh.
There are only a few campsites at Savuti, Linyanti and Ihaha. Guests need to plan well in advance if they would like to stay in the park during the high season: June through to October.
