This place is also a dream if you're dream is to capture some amazing photographs. Here you can practice photography all day long. The hotel even has cameras for you to use and resident photography guides to show you how to use them. So, it's good for all abilities, the award winners and the happy snappers. They even have a gallery, in the centre of the building, which all 14 bedrooms lead off. Here hang images from the photography guides and images from top wildlife photographers who visit. And, wait for it, this is special - at the end of the gallery there's an editing suite for post-production sessions?! That is seriously cool.
Fourteen en-suite, air-conditioned rooms - nine king-size and five twin-rooms. The marvellous thing, the 'single' beds are so massive they're actually all doubles. Concrete bed bases, counter tops and floors bring a cool industrial finish to an otherwise cosy and contemporary abode.
Wondering where to put your camera stuff? Yup, they thought that might be an issue so they've made a sure effort to give you plenty of surface space too. Lots of room for your cameras and laptops. There are also lots of charging points. And safes and tea & coffee making facilities.

So, you're in the African bush. Just look around. The Chobe offers excellent sightings all year. Some go so far as to call it the greatest photographic playground of them all. The Big Five are here, there's the largest elephant population in Africa and a great mass of different birds.
The hotel offers a photographic boat trip on one of their three 8- seater, shallow-hulled boats. There are customised gimbals and 360 rotational seats.
For game drives they have an 8 seater vehicle with bean bag camera mounts.
They can even provide the cameras if need be. Canon DSLR cameras, telephoto lenses, memory cards and photo tuition if you need it. By the way, this is included in the room rate. Nice.
You could go to Victoria Falls for a day trip from the hotel. It's also known as "the smoke that thunders" and is UNESCO world heritage site. Basically a huge sheet of falling water.
