CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
The Pangolin Voyager Houseboat is ideal for a relaxing holiday on the Chobe River. The elegant houseboat offers guests a unique experience of the Chobe National Park as they’ll be cruising along in comfort. The Pangolin Voyager cruises during brunch and when the midday sun is blazing. Guests can relax on the partially shaded upper deck or enjoy the comfort of the lounge or a delicious meal in the dining area.
Guests can visit the local village where many of the crew members come from and go game viewing on the additional eight-seater boat. There is also a tender boat available for scenic boat rides or transfers. The boat trips usually take place at first light or a few hours before sunset, which are the best times for game viewing.
The captain and crew are great at what they do. They’re friendly, helpful and make guests feel comfortable during their cruise.
The Chobe River forms the border between Namibia and Botswana. The Pangolin Voyager cruises down the Namibian side of the Chobe River with the Chobe National Park on the Botswana side, where guests can see a tremendous amount of game.
The Chobe River is unique because it sometimes flows in the opposite direction! It converges with the Zambezi River which floods at certain times of the year, causing the Chobe to flow backwards.
Guests stay in cabins with twin or double beds, depending on their choice. The bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and solar-powered air-conditioners run during times that guests are most likely to be in their rooms. The air-conditioner is centrally controlled to manage the limited supply of energy from the battery.
On the middle level of the boat there are shared living and dining areas as well as a bar. The large glass doors offer a great view of the river and its inhabitants. The partially shaded upper deck is ideal for game viewing and star-gazing.
You can set up your own itinerary on this trip. Guests love the morning and afternoon activities on the custom 8-seater boat or additional tender boat for general game viewing. The optional village visit is free of charge. Tiger fishing is available during season at an additional charge.
