Set alongside the wildlife-rich savannas of Chobe National Park, this luxury tented camp has something special to celebrate this year: the 2010 return of water to the Savute Channel—Chobe’s major waterway—after a three-decade absence. The newly flowing river has brought African fish eagles, crocodiles, and a new abundance of wildlife to the park—so, although it’s popular with other area safari lodges, the preserve now hosts more than enough cheetahs, lions, hyenas, zebras, and Cape buffalo for everyone to see. The elephant camp (so named because of its proximity to a watering hole popular with the area’s large herd of Kalahari elephants) has 12 cushy elevated tents with AC, open-air porches, and expansive baths—plus a fabulous boma (traditional fire-pit dining area) for gathering at night
