You’ll travel by land and river to the Chobe National Park, where you will safari by vehicle and also by boat. Here you can expect to see hundreds of elephants, as well as lions, impala, lechwe, Cape buffalo, hippo, leopards (if you’re lucky) and a truly marvellous array of birdlife.
In Botswana, you’ll stay in Chobe Safari Lodge, where most rooms (in thatched buildings) face on to the vast river, and baboons and warthogs often cross the grass in front of you. There’s a very small pool, a bar and a breezy restaurant, all with views of the Chobe.
The guides in Chobe – taking wildlife tours by land safari and by boats – had a passion for and deep knowledge of the animals, birdlife and landscape that so breathtakingly surrounded us. But it’s a kind of potluck which one you’ll get, and whether they’ll stay with your group for the whole tour.
