If you want to get close to the Chobe wildlife, this is the place to do it! We had a wonderful stay, beginning with Alta's greeting at Kasane immigration and her welcome drink on our boat ride to Zovu. Peter took us on a great boat cruise, which included tracking lions as they hunted on the shore. The food was...

Stayed two nights. Apartments brand new and very clean. Management very friendly and helpful. Restaurant on river still under construction, so no view while eating. Did not enjoy the formal all sit down together lunch and dinners at the same time at one long table with all the other guests. We like our privacy. They served home style cooking dishes....

Zovu Elephant Lodge offers a comfortable, relaxing visit to the Chobe river and Chobe National Park. The owners went out of their way to ensure we have a comfortable stay and went the extra mile to take us on Game Cruises whenever we felt like it. The food was delicious, rooms were spacious and neat. Really enjoyed it, felt like...

Excellent wildlife viewing and we were lucky to be just the two of us for some of the trips. We didn't take the day trip to Victoria Falls which meant we could make the most of the Chobe area which I'm glad about because we are really wildlife focussed. The land game drive in Chobe could maybe be a bit...

Paradise, with the best accommodation and service one can get!! We saw so many animals, including lion, on the boat cruises operated by the very experienced and able Pieter Visagie. Mom Alta's food was the best and every meal was blessed.

We were lucky enough to spend 2 nights here in November. Arriving by boat across the River from Botswana was a magical start. This a small family run lodge. It is very well run with the family much in evidence . Pieter is the host and excellent guide. All the fun is on the River with trips out to see...

We and our guests from Germany (we are tour operators) thoroughly enjoyed our two day stay at Zovu. The personal attention to detail and the rewarding boat rides on the Chobe River make this an experience of a lifetime.

Marlies + Esther Machhein were very enthralled about the lodge and want to come again next year with husband/father Klaus. It was the experience of their lifetime! They specially pointed out the excellent organization and very good and personal service of Peter (transport / gamedrives etc:) and Alta`s excellent kitchen and "motherly" attitude.
