Chobe Day Trip

Chobe Day Trip – $156pp
Departs daily (for a minimum of four people)

This is a full day activity, ideal for those short of time but looking for the best possible game viewing experience.

The departure time is 7am from Fawlty Towers to the Kazangula border crossing into Botswana. Here you are taken across the river by speed boat to Botswana immigration.

Once all formalities have been completed you will be transferred to the lodge where you will board a small pontoon boat for a morning cruise along the Chobe River. This area is renowned for its incredible bird life and vast numbers of elephant regularly drinking, swimming and bathing in the shallows. In addition to this you are likely to come across hippo, buffalo, puku, waterbuck, warthog and many other mammal species.

After the cruise a buffet lunch with soft drinks and mineral water will be served back at the lodge.   After lunch you will head into the national park in a 4 x 4 game viewer for a game drive.  Here you have the opportunity to see plenty of wildlife and the possibility of viewing some of the predator species in the park. Your guide will take you in search of leopard, lion and hyena while enjoying the prolific bird and animal life along the way.

Once the game drive is over you will be taken back to the border at 4.30pm and taken across the river by speedboat where we will collect you and bring you back to Fawlty Towers by around 5.30 – 6pm.

NB: Visas are not included in this package.  Please check the visa requirements for Botswana and Zambia.
