Booked the sunrise to sunset tour to chobe national park so that I could get in early before the crowd. Got to see zebras on the way. There is no lion in Chobe National park. If you must see, don't choose here. Got to see giraffes, elephants, hippos, impalas and gibbons everywhere! The sunset setting on the river was amazing.
Had a very nice day, everything went smoothly from pick up to drop off. We had Brook for our guide and he was fantastic, very patient and obliging. I might just mention that if you have water with your lunch, you will be charged. There could be water and juice on the buffet table but we didn’t see it.
We came to the hotel to pick me up on time and kindly responded. We were able to see many animals and thank you for explaining in detail. We had drinks prepared and it was very delicious.
We had a “free day” after viewing Victoria Falls and this was an amazing way to spend it! Totally worth it! The guide was knowledgeable and worked to give us a memorable day.
Great experience, super organized, very friendly and competent guides, beautiful landscapes, lots of animals
