Spend the day exploring the natural beauty of Chobe National Park with a local guide. You’ll experience open savannas and get an up-close encounter with the incredible wildlife that calls this park home. Some 80,000 elephants wander the plains here, making it one of the world`s best spots for sighting these majestic gentle giants. You will also get to see hippos, giraffe, hyena, lions, and other plains game on the waterfront drive. Buffet lunch and refreshments will be provided.


7:30

Pick up from your Victoria Falls or Livingstone hotel for the transfer to Chobe National Park in Botswana. This will be a 70km drive (about one hour of safe driving) through the Zambezi National Park (Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park on the Zambia side) with good chances of wildlife spotting before we even get to Botswana.

8:30

We will be at the Zimbabwe/Zambia - Botswana border and after simple immigration formalities we head straight to the Chobe River jetty for the three hours Chobe River game cruise. The day typically starts with a river cruise into the park, with an opportunity to see a host of waders and water birds along with the ever-present crocodiles and lurking hippos.

Chobe is renowned for scores of large herbivores making their way down to the river to drink - most notably African buffalo and elephant. On the island, Puku and Lechwe is often seen and on the banks; kudu, impala, and waterbuck are common. Complimentary soft drinks are included on the boat, as well as tea and coffee and a light snack prior to the activity.

12:30

After the cruise, a satisfying lunch is served at the Chobe Safari Lodge (or similar). Bottled water, tea and coffee are included with lunch.

After a one-hour lunch break, we head off on a game drive - getting close to nature with specially adapted open 4 x 4 vehicles. Frequent lion sightings occur in Chobe. Eland, sable, and Roan antelope are common at certain times of the year. Leopards are elusive but common in the area - you may be lucky! Drives are typically along the waterfront where game congregates to quench their thirst, with lions often lying in wait or just dozing in the shade. Complimentary soft drinks are provided while experiencing some of the best game viewings in Africa.

After a 3-hour safari drive vehicles return to the border at 16:30 for the return transfer to Victoria Falls/Livingstone. We will be at the border at 17:00 and after the border formalities we drive to Victoria Falls/Livingstone through the Zambezi/Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park again and more wildlife can still, be seen on the way.

You will be back at your hotel at about 18:00 or thereabout.
