Hyena Pan is a serene tented camp situated north of the Kwai River, where elephant, buffalo and numerous bird species frequent the natural mopane pan.
Located west of Chobe National Park, the camp is in a prime position for observing spectacular wildlife, with highlights including spotted hyena, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck, red lechwe, impala, eland and roan. The camp itself is small and intimate, with just eight en suite tents overlooking the pan. The site is almost entirely generated by solar power, with the exception of gas showers, and features a picturesque swimming pool.
During a stay at the camp, guests can expect a range of vehicle safaris, bush walks, night drives or full day trips in Moremi National Park to look for large herds of elephant, as well as lion, leopard and wild dog. Hyena Pan boasts an underground hide and a ground-level hidden viewpoint overlooking a waterhole, offering superb photographic opportunities.
For the more adventurous, guests can spend half a day, or even a night, atop an elevated platform with views of elephant and antelope. Each deck comes with twin beds and mosquito nets, along with incomparable views of the African sky at night.
