About Senyati Safari Camp

You can nearly touch them -- only underground, photographic elephant bunker in Chobe. Top campsite in Chobe with campsites and self-catering chalets with airconditioners. Each campsite has its own ablution (toilet, showe and small kitchen basin). Nowhere in Chobe will you see more elephants and other animals by merely sitting on your balcony. And dont forget to check-out our lovely pool area.

Senyati is located 8 km before Kazungula which is about 8km outside Kasane and only about 2 km from the Airport. Why dont you fly in and fly out and we can arrange the rest for you?

Senyati Safari Camp is rated as Lonely Planet's Top Choice in the Chobe Area of Botswana, Senyati Safari Camp is famous for its 24/7 lit waterhole which attracts about 400 elephant per day during dry season. Buffalo and painted dogs (wild dogs) are common visitors. During rainy season (from December through end March) Senyati transforms into a bird-lovers' paradise. Senyati has an underground photographic bunker, a look-out deck, overlooking the waterhole, and a large swimming pool.

Campsites all have private ablution blocks (toilet and shower and kitchen) and chalets are fully-equipped for self-catering.

Senyati is only a one hour drive from Victoria Falls and 10 km from Chobe National Park which makes it a perfect "base camp" for trips to Victoria Falls and into the National Park. Senyati runs a daily shuttle to Victoria falls departing 6.30 am and returning about 6 pm every day. Other activities such as sunset cruises on the Chobe river, tiger fishing excursions, safari drives are also arranged through reception.

At sunset Senyati is transformed into a small Serengeti with buffalo, elephant, giraffe, orix, hyena, wild dogs and even lion visiting the waterhole. The famous deck which people have described as "The Bar With the Best View in the World" is open all night long for guests who would like to watch animals during the midnight hours. G&T's are the best in Botswana. If you dont see enough animals then it is because you are not having enough of our G&Ts.

Both 2x4 and 4x4 roads are possible. 2x4 road goes through Lesoma Village (just follow signs from Lesoma Village) and 4x4 road can be tough from September through end November. Rather use 2x4 road if not familiar with 4x4 driving on thick sand from September to November.

Pick up from Kasane International Airport can be arranged by email for stay-over guests.

Swimming pool on premises.
Activities are booked at reception, Chobe Boat Cruise, Victoria Falls Day Trip, Safari Drives, Tiger Fishing etc. Free WIFI between 5 and 9 pm.

                  The stuff was very friendly and helpful. The veranda with the bar is good to sit and watch the elephants, also the hidden room under the floor.

                  The price does not justify for self catering unit comparing to selfcatering units in Kasane. The unit was very compacked. Wood and ice over priced please buy before entering Senyati
