Our Chobe Day Trip takes you deep into the heart of Botswana’s big game country, where an extensive assortment of wildlife roams freely across a vast and open terrain.
The tour begins after an early morning breakfast at your hotel. From there, we head to Botswana’s iconic Chobe National Park, which thrills with animal experiences and has the largest concentration of elephants on the planet. It takes about an hour to reach the Zimbabwe/Botswana Border. Upon completing immigration formalities, the drive to the Park’s entrance lasts roughly 30 minutes.
Chobe National Park is one of the last remaining frontiers of Africa where you can get to see animal greats such as elephants, buffaloes, hippos and impalas going about their daily routines within their natural habitats. If you’re lucky, you may even spot a few big cats like the lion and the leopard. In addition, there are hundreds of fascinating bird species to view that call this place home.
In the morning, we explore the National Park in a comfortable, well-equipped safari vehicle. After working up an appetite in the great outdoors, we stop for a delicious lunch at one of the local hotels, before embarking on a relaxing boat cruise along the wildlife-rich Chobe River. Then, we make our way back to Victoria Falls. The day ends with a drop off at your place of accommodation at around 6 p.m.
