Chobe Water Villas
Chobe Water Villas is privately situated in the 150 km² Namibian Kasika Conservancy directly on the banks of the Chobe River, opposite the renowned Chobe National Park and the town of Kasane in Botswana. It affords unobstructed views into the Chobe National Park and over the world-renowned Sedudu Island, which is home to 400 species of water birds, Red Lechwe, crocodiles, hippos, Water Buffalo and an abundance of elephants. Chobe Water Villas is nestled quietly under magnificent shading Acacia Trees and exclusively hosts only 32 guests in its uniquely positioned luxurious water villas. These are suspended over the water’s edge, and feature 180-degree unobstructed views of the Chobe River, Sedudu Island and Chobe National Park.
Each of the 16 luxurious villas has an open-plan bedroom and lounge, which face the spectacular Chobe through floor-to-ceiling glass doors. These fold back completely along the entire width of the room and onto the front terrace. There is also a beautifully appointed bathroom with double vanity, separate bath, shower and toilet. From the infinity pool, right on the water’s edge you can enjoy spectacular views of the Chobe River, as well as its wildlife. The restaurant, cocktail bar and various lounge area options will leave you spoiled for choice.
