Chobe Full Day Trip Ex. Kaz. Border (Zambia)


All our Camping packages & Chobe Full Daytrips are incl. Chobe National Park Entrance Fees. Note Rates are showing in (BWP) Botswana Pula.

Activity Description

Guests are picked up from the border at 08h00, and transported to their first activity. 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 buffalo and elephant. On the island, Puku and Lechwe are often seen and on the banks kudu, impala and water buck are common. A complimentary soft drink is included on the boat, as well as tea and coffee and a light snack prior to guest’s activity.

After the cruise a satisfying lunch is served at the Coffee Buzz restaurant. Bottled water, tea and coffee are included with lunch.

After a one hour lunch break, guests head off on a game drive – getting close to nature with specially adapted open 4 × 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. Guests are provided with a complimentary soft drink while experiencing some of the best game viewing in Africa.

After the Safari drive vehicles return to the appropriate border at 16h30 for their return transfer to Livingstone. For anyone not able to stay over in Botswana the Chobe day trip is a must!

Overall the full day trip to Chobe was excellent. We were picked up on time on the Botswana side; the 'coffee break' was pleasant; the boat ride on the river was Wonderful! The lunch was good and the game drive was excellent. Thanks for a delightful time along the Chobe! On the 'opportunities for improvement' side: 1. When we got to the Zambezi crossing that morning before the tour, things were chaotic. There were trucks everywhere waiting to ferry to Botswana. There were no signs to indicate the customs and immigration location but fortunately I have 28 years of experience in Africa and my three friends/tour partners are Zambian so we found the Zambia/Botswana office and cleared that. 2. Then we went to the River looking for a Kalahari Tour sign - there are NONE! So we asked a person and they sent us to a dock but there was no one there. 3. So we went to another dock where "John" was pulling in a boat. We asked where the Kalahari boat was; he replied that it was not working. After a bit of negotiating, John agreed to ferry us across the river. 4. We got to the other side of the Zambezi with John, but still no sign of any kind indicating Kalahari, so we stood around waiting and wondering, but at least we were in Botswana! 5. Finally, one Kalahari van, then quickly two more - so we were fine and as noted above, the tour was excellent. However, tourists new to Africa would have been totally lost on the Zambian side. That the customs/immigration folks have no sign is just typical Africa. But you guys have a professional, well run operation from the website to the boat ride and the game drive on the Botswana side - so try to make it easier for your customers on the Zambian side with some signs on the dock, on the boat and on the other side on arrival.
