The Pangolin Chobe Hotel is the newest addition in hotel accommodation and is unlike any other in Kasane. Situated on top of a hill this hotel overlooks the Chobe River and offers a clean, spacious and minimalistic design with a simplistic industrial style decor. This hotel offers a unique experience and is considered great value for money with activities, meals and accommodation all well priced. Guests can take in the spectacular views from the infinity pool which uniquely has a fireplace constructed right in the middle of the pool or can enjoy a drink in the second-floor bar also with stunning views. The hotel is located close to the Chobe National Park’s gate and slightly hidden from Kasane’s busy streets, while still being close enough to experience the town centre if desired.
The Pangolin Chobe Hotel offers 14 simple designed rooms that are equipped with either a king size bed or two twin beds in each room. Each room also features a coffee station, private balcony, its own bathroom, air conditioning, ample luggage space as well as a safe large enough for camera equipment and a laptop.
The dining area provides a great communal area where there is plenty of space for guests to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. The property also offers a relaxing bar area which overlooks the Chobe River is equipped with comfortable couches and serves a great selection of beverages.
The Pangolin Chobe Hotel offers guests unique safari or boat trips which are specifically targeted for photography. This experience is led by experienced photographers who teach you their tricks of the trade and how to get the best out of your camera or you can use their camera equipment. This photo safari is an item on the bucket list of most travellers who wish to maximise their skills in wildlife photography. General game safaris are also available for those travellers who wish to enjoy the scenery and wildlife around them.
With the Pangolin Chobe Hotel being a big drawcard for photographers, it would not be complete without an editing room. This room has 20 dedicated spaces where guests can sit and charge equipment while reviewing and editing photographs. This room is fully air-conditioned and a television is available for guests who wish to watch their photos on a large screen.
What we love about Pangolin Chobe Hotel
- One of the best game reserves for photography or both wildlife and scenery.
- The Pangolin Chobe Hotel has one of the best boutique photo galleries in the country.
- The hotel’s position on the hillside overlooking the Chobe River and floodplains is quite extraordinary, as the sun sets directly in front of the hotel, making for spectacular sunsets.
