Certainly, Nogatsaa Pans’ greatest asset is its total exclusivity. With no other lodges located in this wild and untraversed area, there is a sense of utter wilderness. This region of Chobe, which is 20km from the park’s Phoha Gate and 80km from Kasane, was for a long time closed to the public, and now Nogatsaa Pans has re-established the safari element with total privacy for their guests. The lodge, similarly to its sister camp Ghoha Hills, is built with eco-conscious luxury in mind. There are 12 tented suites, including 2 family tents, and the entire lodge is run on solar power.
The game viewing in this vastly unchartered area of Chobe National Park is wild, long having forgotten the presence of humans in safari vehicles. Some areas are open grassland, while others are thick mopane woodland, which is teeming with elephants. Expect to see some wildlife flee from the vehicle, while other animals gaze back with curiosity. There is an abundance of birdlife that flocks around the many pans and waterholes, and making the game viewing experience even more interesting is the presence of numerous elevated hides positioned overlooking known pans. Lions bellow into the night and hippos grunt during the day, and without the activity of other vehicles in the area, the sound of the wildlife is uninterrupted. Kwikamba Pan in front of the lodge attracts an array of wildlife, so we’d recommend sitting back in one of the sun loungers keeping one eye on the water at all times!

Tucked away in the north eastern corner of Chobe National Park on the Linyanti waterways is Camp Linyanti. Remote, unspoilt, with the lagoons of the Linyanti floodplains before it, and riverine forests with huge trees surrounding it, Camp Linyanti is an undiscovered gem.
