Enjoy a thrilling adventure of two days one night safari in the Chobe National Park for a night of slumber under the African sky!
Start your experience with a boat cruise on Chobe River into Chobe National Park, one of the highlights of the trip as you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with fantastic birdlife, hippos, crocodiles and scores of elephant and Cape buffalo that make their way down to the river to quench their thirst.
Enjoy a delicious lunch at Coffee Buzz restaurant and then head back into the park on one of our customised 4×4 game viewers for an afternoon game drive, being the best time to see Chobe’s large herbivores making their way down to the river to drink.
Head to Camp shortly after sunset for dinner around the camp fire, then settle in for the night in one of our comfortable tents and enjoy the thrill of sleeping in the bush.
Wake up at dawn with a friendly Botswana “dumela” (good day), and after breakfast head off on an early morning game drive. This time of day is best for finding the big cats or wild dogs as they are still active at this time and chances of seeing them are good.
Return to Camp for a delicious “bush brunch” and an opportunity to take a refreshing shower and to pack.
Leave Camp on a final game drive back into Kasane/Kazungula.
We will be camping in Chobe National Park in Exclusive Wilderness sites ie HATAB or BOGA sites, with no other campers nearby. If the sites are fully booked we will be forced to use the public site at Ihaha, although this is very rare.
All trips will have a backup team, including a cook and minimal/no participation is required. Ablutions consist of rustic open air bucket showers and long drop-style toilets.
We attempt to work two departures weekly: i.e. on Tuesdays and Fridays.
In the event of groups of over 6 these set days are flexible and we can negotiate discounts for groups of over 12 pax.
All trips will be run by skilled, licensed professional guides and a backup team.
