About Elephant Valley Lodge
Elephant Valley Lodge is surrounded by the peaceful wilderness of the African bush. It lies in a unique position over-looking 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 20 spacious accommodation tents with tea and coffee making facilities, fan, electric blankets in winter, hair dryers, charging points plus en-suite shower and toilet. Eight tents have views over the valley towards the water hole and twelve tents are nestled around the lush forest lawns and swimming pool.
There is an attractive open lounge, bar and upper outside viewing deck. This connects to an under-cover dining area with an outside dining deck. Sun loungers, day bed and comfortable seating surround the rim-flow pool. Paths from here lead to game viewing platform and a traditional out-door ‘Boma’ where evening meals are often served.
All these facilities have views over-looking the valley and water-hole which attracts a wide variety of game, particularly elephant. In the forest area surrounded by lawns and acacia trees, is a second swimming pool.
There is also a gift shop next to the reception, selling curios and some guest amenities
AFRICAN BUSH CUISINE
Freshly prepared meals are served in several locations, all of which over-look the water hole which attracts an abundance of animals through-out the day and night.
Breakfast is served at different times of the morning depending on the time of your morning activity.
Lunch is buffet style, and usually includes a variety of tempting salad dishes, choice of meats and home-made bread, and is often served on the outside dining deck.
The ‘boma’ is a favourite location for evening meals, with a welcoming camp fire and close up views of game by the water-hole made visible in the floodlight. Starters and desserts are plated and main courses may be plated or buffet-style on ‘braai’ nights. All meals are freshly prepared by our cooks.
There are two pools at Elephant Valley Lodge. One is a rim-flow pool overlooking the valley. This is the perfect spot to take a refreshing dip with a drink from the bar. You may find this pool is already being visited by a Chobe Elephant who is also taking an evening drink!
The other pool is in the lush forest area of the lodge. Providing a bigger area to swim and relax under the shade of mahogany trees.
