Chobe National Park Day Trip: Game Drive and River Cruise

Chobe Day Tour with Game Drive

Your friendly driver will collect you from your Livingstone or Victoria Falls hotel and transport you in an air-conditioned coach to the Kazungula border to kick off your Chobe National Park Day Trip with game drive and river cruise. Meet your local guide who will lead you into one of Botswana’s most prized natural landscapes.
Make your way to the Chobe River, where you’ll set sail on a comfortable boat and enjoy tea and coffee with some tasty snacks while you look out over breathtaking scenery and try to spot hippos, elephants, crocodiles, colorful birds and other wildlife.
After this picturesque boat ride you’ll make a stop at the Chobe Safari Lodge where you’ll enjoy a buffet lunch with your guide and fellow travelers before hopping into a 4x4 vehicle for an off-road tour of Chobe National Park. This incredible experience offers an opportunity to spot the Big Five—elephants, Cape buffalos, lions, leopards and rhinos. Your park ranger will stay on the look out to insure you capture as much wildlife as possible.

We recently traveled to Chobe National park on a day safari tour. We were a group of three and joined 6 other people. We were picked up from our hotel in Livingstone, Zambia. This was a very well coordinated tour from prick up to return.
We thoroughly enjoyed the river cruise and the game drive. We saw a lot Elephants and a number of other animals in the wild doing their thing. Our guide was accommodating given the diversity of the group on our tour.
We highly recommend this tour if you happen to be in the area or travel to Botswana or Livingstone specifically.

My 5 star rating is mainly based on the river cruise half of the trip. Our boat captain was David, and he was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the river, animals, and birds, as well as being very personable and happy to answer our questions. Lunch at the Chobe safari lodge was delicious and plentiful. All of the transfers between hotel , customs, and game park were handled very smoothly. The game drive was just average. Our driver seemed to be in a hurry, and he wasn't very responsive to our interest in the birdlife. I realize part of the problem was that we did the drive in the heat of the day. If I had it to do again, I might stick to the river unless I could do the game drive very early or at dusk

Def worth booking through Viator, this was our second successful trip thousands of miles from home with Viator. Pick up on time and all so well organised. Wish we'd seen a lion but that was the time of years fault not Viator. Thank you xx
