Chobe River Full-Day Cruise

The Chobe Explorer cruise takes guests down the Chobe River in Botswana, which is famous for wildlife sightings. Approaching wildlife with a boat won’t frighten them easily, so on the river guests can get spectacular views of the animals and birds without disturbing them in their natural habitat. Wildlife is always concentrated around sources of water and this is no exception for the majestic Chobe River.


The Chobe Explorer

The triple decker Chobe Explorer has a restaurant on the ground floor and a lounge area on the middle floor. Here, guests can lounge on comfortable couches. Not to mention the stunning observation deck of the Chobe Explorer. Sitting high up on the boat, you can see very far.

This is the perfect safari activity as the boat is very comfortable, with a restaurant and a restroom. Being on a boat also gives you the opportunity to see the most wildlife due to animals flocking to the river for some relief from the blazing Botswana sun.


The specs:

  • 220sq metres of deck space spread over three decks
  • Arrival deck with a galley and a restaurant
  • Middle deck with a lounge and a bar
  • Top deck with shaded swing sun loungers
  • Shower and flush toilets
  • The boat is powered by two 115hp Yamaha 4 stroke outboards


Enjoy lunch on the Chobe River

All that game-viewing might make you hungry! Guests are served lunch on the boat in the typical African style: braai meat, salads, traditional stews with rice or pap and dessert. The trip also includes breakfast, drinks, and savory snacks on the return voyage.

Make sure to order any specific favourite drink so it can be taken on-board. Guests can pack their cameras, binoculars, sunscreen and a warm jacket in winter.
