Hi all,I am looking for a person or small group of people that would be interested in making a small investment in this fantastic camp site.

Will have self drive and 4 or 5 semi luxury tented camp,with a mobile safari,and game drives over a huge area.Best thing about this area is ,there are no other camps or any traffic what so ever.The camp site is situated right on the Chobe Nat Park boundry road as indicated on the map.I have just been up there and never saw anybody or even heard another car for the whole time I was at the camp,only when I got close to the main road 5km or so did I see an army truck going on poaching patrol.

It is in one of the best game areas I have seen and for a 100km radius there is nothing but bush and wild life,except for the chap that sits at Poha gate ,Chobe entrance to Savuti.

This is as wild as it gets,lots of Lion,Elephant ,Buffalo,Sable ,wild dog and all other plains game,traversing over 500,000 HA excluding the Park.

This camp will operate for 7 to 8 months of the year due to thick bush and bad roads,some roads one cannot even attemt with a good 4x4 they are so bad.

Photo of actual camping area,big trees and lots of bush,about 300 m from a water hole that we will keep full in the dry months,as water here dries up and becomes very scarce ,the game will hang around here then and I will put out salt licks as well.

Photo taken from the Seleko Plains back towards the camp and Chobe entrance gate, just 10 km or so up the road from the camp site,this photo shows the boundry road between Chobe ,on the right and the camp area to the left.These plains are vast as you can see on the map,lots of game here after the burn.

Anybody interested in such a project is welcome to come and walk on the wild side for a few days and get an idea of what is to come.

Please feel free to e mail or inbox me here on ST.

Hi, how far is the development on this site? We are traveling from 22 October in Botswana. We want to enter at Poha Gate. I want some more details about the area. Is it possible to travel from Poha gate directly to Savuti? How is the road conditions?
