Pangolin Chobe Hotel

Pangolin Chobe Hotel is a specialist photographic hotel located in Kasane on the edge of the Chobe National Park.

Pangolin Chobe Hotel is owned and operated by specialist photographic safari company, Pangolin Safaris. While the hotel is comfortably furnished, and has great access to Chobe National Park and the Chobe River, it is the photographic focus that really sets it apart.

With cameras, lenses, tuition and an editing room all included in the price, Pangolin Chobe Hotel offers a great value option for those wanting to hone their wildlife photography skills, whilst at the same time enjoying some excellent wildlife viewing along the Chobe River, which is particularly famous for its elephant viewing during the dry season.
