Camp Kuzuma, Chobe | Hideaways Life-Changing Experiences

Camp Kuzuma, Chobe

Camp Kuzuma is a boutique eco-lodge in Botswana that borders Chobe National Park and Hwange National Park. Found in an exceptional safari area made up of vast open plains and a forest reserve, that form part of a busy wildlife corridor. The seven well-appointed tents are incredibly spacious, boasting deep Victorian baths and king-sized beds draped in mosquito nets. With a true commitment to eco-tourism, the camp is completely off the grid yet offers all the comforts guests may desire on their Botswana Safari Experience. Camp Kuzuma has the unique advantage of also being a base for hot-air balloon safaris.

Your Experience

Every new day is announced by the gentle hum and rhythmic beat of African drums, rousing guests for another day of riveting wildlife experiences in the wilds of Botswana. The boutique safari camp is found in a busy animal corridor and part of an ancient elephant migratory route, the area is splendidly full of wildlife but impressively empty of other people besides our guests and camp staff, making it a true hideaway.

The stone and canvas suites have charmingly luxurious old-world touches such as high-backed Victorian baths, leather couches, and silver trays & teapots interspersed with distinctly Botswanan accents. Your tent has a private viewing deck as well as a refreshing outdoor shower. In the main area, a rim-flow pool overlooks the busy waterhole where herds of elephants drink and bathe, and during the dry season other animals line up to wait their turn. The sunken fire pit just off the deck is a space that invites quiet contemplation in the cool afternoon breeze and a gathering place for bush tales around the campfire in the evening. Look forward to Boma dinners under the stars and a Shebeen Chic experience, a down to earth dinner with a delightfully local African flavour.

Our expert guides will astound you with their knowledge of fauna and flora as will the amount of wildlife to discover. Besides journeying through the bush in an open-air safari vehicle, guests also have the incredible opportunity to experience the area by water and air! A Chobe River boat cruise is an absolute must-do, hippos and crocodiles bask in the sun on the banks of the river while elephants get right in the water and walk across to the other side – an up close and personal experience! And by air? We are one of the only lodges in Botswana to offer hot air ballooning! Glide peacefully through the air above the plains observing the herds below, an extraordinary once in a lifetime experience that you’ll never forget.
