Lagoon Camp

Chobe & the North

Rating: Deluxe    Price from: £365 - £710 pp full board

Lagoon Camp overview

Lagoon Camp has a beautiful setting on the shady banks of the Kwando River among tall and ancient African ebony and marula trees, under the watchful gaze of the resident hippos.

It accommodates 16 guests in 8 luxury safari-style tents which are more like huge airy rooms. Each tent has large netted windows looking out over the water. The rooms are spacious and airy and include a lounge area, and large changing area leading to the bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers and 24-hour hot water. The furnishings are luxurious with comfy leather chairs, Persian rugs and traditional claw-foot bathtubs.

There is an open-fronted split level lounge and bar area, leading out to the swimming pool on one side and the dining deck on the other, with a step down to the camp fire. The main deck is built out over the lagoon and has great views. The cosy library is located on the upper floor of the reception area and looks out over the lagoon deck.

The shady environment of the camp hosts a great variety of birds and squirrels that visit daily. A family of hippo and an elephant or three are regularly sighted from the tents. This contributes to the relaxed calm that prevails at Lagoon Camp.

Boat cruises along the Kwando River provide excellent opportunities for birding. There is also specialist fly fishing and spinner fishing on offer for tiger fish and bream.  Seasonal walks are also available.

Lagoon Camp's excellent staff are there to look after you quietly and efficiently, so as to ensure a relaxing, peaceful stay in camp after the fun and excitement of your day on safari.

Mrs. Sandra Phipkin (15/03/2015)

"Fabulous location and setting"

Dave and Jenny Cox (12/03/2014)
"I adored Lagoon Camp - wonderful accommodation, fabulous staff, exceptional game viewing (special thanks to Carlos). Thanks to all again for making my birthday to special. When we first arrived at Lagoon we were told "welcome to your second home" and we really did feel that. A very special place."
Ute Brimson (14/08/2011)
"Fabulous location again very close to wildlife. A little 'over the top' in terms of size of accommodation and not completely in keeping with the bush environment. Needs to provide sun shade on decking areas outside accommodation. Food excellent. Guides amazing (Mugadi and Aaron), tracking prides of lions with us."
Jeff Webster (13/07/2010)
"A happy and friendly camp where the food is of top quality and the portions generous! The wine is good too!!"
