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.

A slight delay in picking you up at the hotel didn't harm the good organization on site. Nice staff who helped at the border crossing, we liked the boat tour best, saw great scenery and lots of animals. A small point of criticism: our voucher did not clearly state whether a pick-up at the hotel was possible. Our email request was not answered. We only received confirmation after a phone call to the provider.

It was a lovely daytrip. We flew through immigrants on both the Zambian and Botswana side. I was in doubt about whether there would be charges at the boarders which there were not. The game drive was so nice and the driver was the nicest man. He definetly had our best interest at heart and did his best to find as many animals as possible. We saw elephants everywhere and a lot of hippos and crocodiles. The lunch offered was the most delicious buffet! Fruits, vegetables, meats and ice cream;) All in all a great day, that I would be happy to repeat.

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.
