The 7-Day Best of Chobe Safari consists of a mobile camp experience in the Chobe National Park and Accommodation near Chobe Park. You will enjoy going on game drives and boat cruises twice a day. Chobe National Park is a bucket-list destination for wildlife photography and a must-see when visiting Botswana.
This safari is the perfect chance to learn about the local wildlife’s behaviour and to improve your photography skills. You will be accompanied by a Safari guide to assist you with your Chobe experience.
First, we will stay at a Mobile Camp – in style!
Guests love to sit around the campfire at night and relax with a cold drink from the fridge. The chefs prepare delicious meals in their bush kitchen for you to enjoy. You can expect to see large numbers of herbivores approach their camp. We will stay here for three nights.
Then, on the fourth day, we make our way to the overlooking the Chobe River. Here, you will see many animals congregate around the river. Of course, your Photo Host will go along on the boat trips to help you get the perfect shot.
The elephants love frolicking in the river and might even swim to the islands. Buffalo enjoy the sweet grasses on the islands and occupies these islands in large numbers. Birding while on the river cruise is exceptional. Bee-eaters, fish eagles, waders and many more water birds frequent the riverfront area.
On the game drives, guests can experience sightings of lions and, if you are lucky, leopards. Elephants are in large herds along the Chobe River. Guests can also be surprised with rare sightings of sable antelope and the African painted dog (wild dog).
When you’re not out and about, you can relax at the eco-pool or edit photos in the air-conditioned editing room. You can also plug in your laptop to avoid waiting for a spot at the editing stations. You will get many memory cards to store your photos and take them with you.
