UNIQUE OFFERING:

  • A relaxed intimate river safari experience
  • Incredible wildlife experience
  • Excellent fishing in the river
  • Fantastic bird watching


ITINERARY:

DAY ONE

  • If you arrive with the 13:00 and 14:00 transfers, you’ll be served lunch, while if you’re transferred at 15:00 or 16:00 you’ll be served a selection of snacks.  Once all our guests have boarded in the late afternoon, and if the weather permits, we’ll go in search of some big game.  This is the perfect time of day to make the most of that golden glow of the African sunset by getting some iconic shots of the animals as they gravitate towards the river before night falls.  After the sunset cruise, return back on board and freshen up before meeting your Captain on the upper deck.  After a safety briefing, you’ll make your way to the dining room where you’ll be served a delicious three-course plated dinner along with an excellent choice of wines.  Finish off with a hot drink or nightcap at the bar before retiring to the night sounds of Africa in the distance.

DAY TWO

  • We know that some guests like to watch the sunrise as they sip on their coffee while others like to take a more leisurely approach.  That’s why we let you choose your morning activities, depending on the type of holiday you’re searching for.  Perhaps you want to enjoy a water-based safari or a village tour on the Namibian side of the river?  Or perhaps you’d prefer a spot of bird watching or fishing instead?  Or for the more adventurous, a walking tour to a 2000-year-old baobab tree?  You may even decide to simply remain on board as the Chobe Princess houseboat glides its way along the banks of the Chobe River.  After your morning activities, enjoy lunch on board while using your unique vantage point to spot wild animals and drink in the expansive views.  Join our guide in the afternoon for a water-based safari on a tender boat where you can get up close to an array of wildlife, including some of the 120 000 elephants for which the Chobe is well known.  After a delicious dinner, settle down for a restful and tranquil night in your cabin.

DAY THREE

  • You’ve made a wise choice – you have a whole extra day to enjoy the delights on offer.  After a hearty breakfast, head off to experience those activities you didn’t manage to fit in yesterday:  enjoy a water-based river safari by tender boat, a village or walking tour, go bird watching or fishing for tigerfish or bream.  Return for lunch on board and some relaxation time before the afternoon activities start.  Again, you have the choice between tiger or bream fishing, a village or walking tour, game viewing by tender boat or bird watching.

DAY FOUR

  • Enjoy a morning cruise during breakfast as you do your last bit of animal spotting and take some memorable pictures.  Bid our crew a reluctant farewell and then make your way via boat to the Namibian Immigration Office.  Once you’ve had your documents stamped you’ll be transferred via boat to the Kasane Immigration Office where you’ll have your documents stamped once again before entering Botswana.
