As stated. A lovely location. We paid BPL 200 pp and half price for kids under 12. They have a small shop selling basics and fresh salad from their own garden. Vervet monkeys are a pest though and you need to lock all food away. 10min drive from Chobe Park Ngoma Gate, so great for early morning game viewing.

Nice campsites with a view to the Chobe river. Nr. 5 has nice, pretty unobstructed views. Own fireplace, tap with potable water and sink and electricity (one plug). Ablutions are nice and clean. Small swimming pool. We were here first time in Feb 2020 and then we had very bad vervet monkeys around (of which one really tried to attack!). When we checked in now, they still warned us about a ”monkey problem”, so they are still here. However, we didn’t see them now (we stayed only one night), but have your slingshot around ’cause they were ferociouso.
Bit pricey as 220 Pula/pppn. But only a short drive away from Ngoma gate to the Chobe. Quiet place.

Nice spot after driving trough Chobe. Refreshing dip in the swimmingpool, great view from the campsites and the deck. Even a little shop at the reception with snacks, wood, canned food and cold drinks.

Fenced, so a relaxed evening staying up after dark :)

Very nice camp, we have cut the low branches (with the permission of the staff) so it is OK now for big rigs. Wi-Fi only next to reception. 190 ppn

We stayed here for one night after a good self drive from Sedudu Gate to Ngoma Gate. We drove a strange dirt road to get here just cause the tracks4africa tricked us. Take the big tar road. The campsite is beautiful, the ablutions is in very good condition and the owner are lovely! A perfect place to stay if you are driving between Kasane and Maun. Next to a gas station - perfect to top up before heading to Linyanti! Don’t miss the sunset at the veranda - very beautiful location!

Great campsite, the ground is great, with private sink, braai and water tap. Ablutions were very clean, hot water, small swimming pool and viewing deck on the plains. But mostly it’s the owner’s kindness and advice on how to explore the Chobe River area that did it for us! 190 pula pppn. Good wifi at reception only.

Very nice campsite. Some sites with amazing view over the plains, particularly #1. All ahead to get a site with view.
Staff are friendly. Showers and toilets are clean.
Recommended, even for a couple of days stop.

Nice camp, as described by others. The price is 180 ppn and the GPS coordinates are a bit off. Note that the gas station close by is permanently closed.

Nice campsite, good location to or from Savuti. Offer a very nice salad bag in reception along with other essentials. Each pitch has a braai and sink. WiFi at reception.

Nice campsite with large sized and a focus on beautiful landscaping. The staff were friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed having a space to wash our dishes directly in our campsite.

Nice camping next to the main road what makes it a little bit loud because of some traffic. Spacious camping spots with electricity, braai area, tap and sink. Very clean and well maintained ablutions. There was a nice night guard who opened a gate. Owner came to open a little shop for us even though it was already closed (after 7 pm). You can buy there some soft drinks, water, frozen meet but no beers. Pretty fast and good Wifi in the reception. Downside: enormously lots of bugs and flies which are everywhere including your meal so not recommended for vegetarians.

Wonderful campsite, we stayed in #10 and it had beautiful views over the linyanti floodplain. Very well appointed camp sites- braai stand, power, wash up area and bin. Showers were hot and a power shower- best we’ve had!! Can also buy supplies including meat, salads, wood, toiletries etc at their little shop. WiFi in the office- free. Perfectly situated for onward/inward travel between savuti & Chobe.

Very pleasant campsite exuding an air of peace and tranquility. A slight problem with thieving monkeys who take advantage when your back is turned. A sweet pool area and terrace overlooking the marsh. Exceptionally delicious salad packs available, all grown in the amazing gardens - a highlight for us!

Simple but clean camp site and cottages. Our camp right on the riverbank but not all have a view of river and floodplain of Chobe. Shared ablutions but clean and tidy. No bar or restaurant but reception sells a few essentials. P150 pppn.
