Two Day / One Night Safari
08h30 guests are met at Kazungula by their guide and are escorted through Immigration formalities. A short briefing will follow on some pertinent facts such as safety, and some regional information. At 09h30 guests board the boat and commence a 3 hour boat cruise into the Chobe National park. The river cruise is considered one of the highlights of the trip, as one gets the opportunity to get up close and personal with fantastic birdlife, hippos, crocodiles, and of course scores of elephant and Cape Buffalo that make their way down to the river to quench their thirst. The boat cruise ends at 12h30. After a hearty lunch at Chobe Safari lodge, guests depart for an afternoon game drive—this being the best time to see Chobe’s large herbivores making their way down to the river to drink. Return to camp shortly after sunset for drinks around the camp fire and dinner.
Guests are woken at dawn with warm water being poured into their basins and a friendly Botswana “dumela” (good day). After a quick cup of tea or coffee and a light breakfast, you head off on an early morning game drive. This time of day is best for finding the big cats as they are still active at this time and chances of seeing them are good. Around mid to late morning guests return to camp for a delicious “bush brunch” and an opportunity to take a refreshing shower. After packing up, you then leave the camp on your last 3 hour activity, to be dropped off in Kasane/Kazungula borders by 1630
