Full description
Spend a full day immersed in nature with a cruise on the Chobe River followed by a game drive in the world-famous Chobe National Park. Only 1 hour away from Livingstone, the Chobe National Park in Botswana is home to one of the largest game concentrations in Africa.   The tour departs from Livingstone, where you’ll be picked up from your lodge or hotel for a transfer to the border. Your Botswanan guide will meet you after immigration procedures and take you first to the cruise on the Chobe River. This breathtaking river is famous for its rich elephant and lion population, so keep your eyes peeled to spot the wildlife in the water and along the banks. Enjoy a fresh buffet lunch with several options at a beautiful lodge situated on the riverbank.   Then, switch to a game drive in the National Park. Your open-sided vehicle will allow you to see 360-degrees around you and at great distances over the safari, which is populated with elephants, Cape buffalo, lions, antelopes, and more. Refreshments will be served throughout the tour to keep you cool. After a full day of experiencing the beauty of African nature, you’ll be dropped off back at your accommodations.

It was not mentioned that the transfer to the national park is extremely long. Furthermore, it was not evident that new visa fees would have to be paid for the return transfer to Zambia, although we had paid for a visa on arrival. We didn't have enough cash with us. It was extremely tedious.

Lovely journey to Botswana through Zambia and Botswana to Chobe. The park was lovely and very green this time of year. We saw a great variety of birds and animals especially very close to a mother and baby elephant. Also two Male lions. The cruise on the Chobe river we saw hippos crocodiles buffalo and birds as well as various antelope. Unfortunately being the rainy season it rained and reduced our views. Guides were excellent and it was a very enjoyable day .

Enjoyed the day trip safari very much. Saw so many animals, especially elephants and giraffes, very close up. Our guide was very informative and tried hard to get us to see as many of the Big 5 as we could. He knew Chobe park well, which was great for us. The hotel pick-up and getting through customs went very smoothly thanks to the guide who stayed with us all day. The lunch buffet was a nice break in between, and the food was really good and varied. Thanks for a great tour and a great day.
