Chobe River Full Day Cruise

Chobe River Full Day Cruise

The Chobe Explorer is perfect for animal sightings

Cruise down the Chobe River in Botswana

The Chobe River in Botswana 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.

Usually the animals will be very inactive during the day, avoiding the blazing Botswana sun, but they still need to visit the river. Guests can lounge on comfortable couches or on the observation deck of the Chobe Explorer. This is the perfect holiday activity as the boat is very comfortable, with a restaurant and a restroom.
