    Before I went on this holiday I was nervous about being in a tent. On arriving at this camp my fears disappeared. The 'tent' was luxurious for canvas. You are protected from the animals visiting the waterhole by an electric fence. So all the loud roaring , snorting and howling comes from the other side of the fence. The environs of the lodge are very nice and when not on safari its great just to sit and watch the waterhole. One evening over 50 elephants visited the waterhole. If you stay here you will have a wonderful time. The guides are incredible.

    We cannot speak more highly of this wonderful lodge in beautiful Chobe run by Paula and Greg, and supported by excellent guides and all other staff. 10 out of 10 for everyone!

    We found the location to be perfect, the public areas delightful and fell in love with our first experience of luxury 'tent' accommodation. We asked for recipes of the delicious salads and mains served so that we might impress our American and Australian friends! Having the accommodation bill cover everything was a bonus - food, drinks, safari drives.

    While a holiday in an exotic location like Chobe is one level of experience, what can be equally as important is the sharing of ideas, culture, cuisine and travel experiences from one continent to another as we did with the management staff at EVL. Our American friends, as a result of our stay, are pestering us already about a return trip for us and a first visit for them. Thank you Paula and Greg. We'll see you again

    Elephant Valley Lodge - a fantastic hidden jem among the elephants. The valley is laid out right before your eyes and a wonderful place to sit and watch the wildlife pass directly by during your meals. The staff were absolutely amazing - everyone! From Kristine, Florin, Paula and Greg to KB, our guide and driver/spotter/boat captain extraodinaire, and all the staff - there was NOTHING I needed or had to ask for before it magically appeared in front of me. The tent was extremely clean, and if you didn't have something (bug spray, toiletries, a fan - really anything!) all you had to do was ask and it would miraculously appear when you returned from your game drive. Such hospitality and generosity were so very much appreciated by this single traveler, and will not soon be forgotten. A new and wonderful family I hope to come back and visit soon. (if they'll have me! ha ha)

    We loved Elephant Valley Lodge. Both the spacious rooms and public areas were comfortable and charming, and our manger hosts were delightful, hospitable and personable. And the animals in Chobe Park were just astonishing - the abundance and variety were beyond our expectations, and the wide vistas gloriously beautiful. Our guide KB was excellent - when he learned a lion had been seen in the park recently, even though he was told it had been chased away by a buffalo he continued to search until he found it for us! (Only downside is the drive - ca 20 min?- to the park)

    We stayed 3 nights on an OATS tour. It was a great experience. We had 2 game drives to Chobe National Park or river cruises each day when we were there. Simon and "TT" were great guides. They sat with us at dinner and added to our appreciation. We took some wonderful pictures and had lots of social time in the common area of the lodge. The food was in a buffet style which was good. We were provided with unlimited water to refill bottles. Everyone made our stay enjoyable. If you wanted something, the staffs did or solved it soon. I would definitely go again. The internet cooperated while we were there. I had no problem at all with Apple devices. I saw elephants, kudus, waterbucks, and impalas at the water hole.

    I just got back from our African holiday. I stayed for 7 nights at Elephant Valley Lodge. It was amazing! The location was just great. It was situated right beside a watering hole. The elephants came to drink every night when we sat in the boma having dinner. I had dinner and free entertainment! It was super to watch the elephants interact. Some were guarding the watering hole and not letting others drink and some were obviously good friends greeting each other with their trunks.

    One would have to look hard to find a more hospitable and quality accommodation which gives attention to details than this superb safari luxury bush type camp. They offered well-prepared food and informed staffs that guaranteed satisfaction. Ronnie, the owner, was hands on and all over the place keeping a keen eye on everything and had enough future plans to keep one wanting to return time and again. Their equipment was in safe, top condition with cozy warm ponchos for early morning motor safaris and boat rides on the river. This is a lifetime destination.
