Day 1: 07.30 Guests are transferred from their respective hotels/lodges from Victoria Falls to Kasane Botswana and are escorted through Immigration formalities. A short briefing will follow on some pertinent facts such as safety, and some regional information. At 09.30 guests board the boat and commence a 3 hour boat cruise into the Chobe National park.
The river cruise is considered one of the highlights of the trip, as one gets the opportunity to get up close and personal with fantastic bird-life, hippos, crocodiles, and of course scores of elephant and Cape buffalo that make their way down to the river to quench their thirst. The boat cruise ends at the Coffee Buzz restaurant at 12.30. There is an opportunity to do last minute shopping in Kasane, as there are no shops within the Park. Guests then depart on an afternoon game drive - this being the best time to see Chobe’s large herbivores making their way down to the river to drink. Arrive in camp shortly after sunset for drinks around the camp fire and dinner under the stars. Day 2: Guests are woken at dawn with warm water being poured into their basins and a friendly Botswana “dumela” (good day). After a quick cup of tea or coffee and a light Continental breakfast vehicles head off on an early morning game drive. This time of day is best for finding the big cats or the rare Wild Dogs as they are still active at this time and chances of seeing them are good. Around mid to late morning guests return to camp for a delicious “bush brunch” and a siesta getting an opportunity to read rest or take a refreshing shower. When the day starts to cool off another afternoon game drive follows afternoon tea, and good sightings are revisited or areas as yet unexplored are visited. Chobe National Park has a wide variety of game - the cats and large herbivores such as elephant and buffalo being a highlight, but rarer game such as Puku, Eland, Sable and Roan antelope along with many more common antelope can be viewed here. Return to camp after sunset for a reflective fireside chat. Dinner follows, as always accompanied by the unforgettable sounds of the African night. Day 3: Guests are woken at dawn with warm water being poured into their basins and a friendly Botswana “dumela” (good day). After a quick cup of tea or coffee and some cereal you head off on an early morning game drive. This time of day is best for finding the big cats as they are still active at this time and chances of seeing them are good. Around mid to late morning guests return to camp for a delicious “bush brunch” and an opportunity to take a refreshing shower. After packing up, you then leave the camp on your last activity which is usually another Boat cruise, to be dropped off in Kasane/Kazungula 16.30 and transferred back to Victoria Falls.
