The clear waters of the river and the game reserves that surround it, attract herds of elephant, buffalo, several species of antelope, giraffe, zebra, lion and leopard. Join us on full or half day canoe
trips. You will negotiate small but exciting rapids, canoe through narrow channels and drift down open stretches. No previous canoeing experience necessary.

The ultimate safari experience is a day trip to Chobe National Park in Botswana, which boasts the world’s largest elephant population. The game cruise on the Chobe River brings you close to brilliant bird life, pods of watering hippos, primeval crocodiles and elephants, breathtaking in their sheer number.
