Game drives offer opportunities to see and photograph the stunning range and concentration of wild life that the Chobe National Park and is famous for. As you drive along the river bank looking for fresh tracks, our experienced guides are able to interpret the bush signs and track the animals that left them. Being the first observers at a special sighting is very exciting. The thrill of finding spoor and tracking game must be experienced to be appreciated. Impala are everywhere and giraffe are commonly encountered. Elephant and herds of buffalo abound. Game viewing is a perfect way to spend your time in the peace and tranquillity of the early morning or the late afternoon.

Morning Boat Cruise
Boat Safaris along the Chobe River are a wonderful way to experience close encounters with an abundance of riverine birds and animals. The game viewing while cruising the Chobe River is epic. You can enjoy watching elephants playing in the river or going for a swim. Hippos can be viewed wallowing in the shallow waters or munching grass on the lush islands. Giraffe and antelope make their way to the water edge and sightings of predators along the river bank are common.
A Chobe safari cruise is perfect for photography. Our small boat acts as a mobile hide that allows you to get close to the animals without disturbing them. This has enabled wildlife photographers to capture countless stunning images.
