Based in the semi-arid bush of Africa there is always the challenge of extreme temperature variations and how to combat this. The solution came in one of earths’ great insulators – the sand. The lodge has been entirely constructed from sandbags, the thick sand-filled walls create a natural insulating barrier between the inhabitants and the harsh African climate and enhance the old farm-style feel of the camp.
Keeping the environment in mind, the development has focused on renewable resources wherever possible. From ensuring that all the construction timber and furniture is manufactured from renewable wood sources or from reclaimed wood, to using the sun’s energy to heat the water, Chobe Elephant Camp makes every effort to keep its carbon footprint as small as possible, while at the same time never compromising guest comfort.
