Chobe National Park
Sitting on the banks of the Chobe River, the small town of Kasane is the northern entry point to Chobe National Park, and sits near the confluence with the Zambezi, where the four countries of Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Namibia meet. We have a welcome briefing, before we head out on our adventure. First stop Chobe National Park. The first glimpse of the Chobe River is always breathtaking. Home to large herds of Elephants and Cape buffalo. Driving the roads along the river’s edge, you may see up to 15 different species of animals including giraffe, kudu, roan antelope, sable antelope, impala, warthog, bushbuck, monkeys and baboons followed by the big predators like lion and hyena.
After arrival at camp we show you to your tent followed by a light lunch. A late afternoon game in Moremi or the Khwai Concession is a necessity and of course a sundowner is in order while you take in the colors of the sunset. Back at camp we gather for our evening meal and then move to the campfire and shares stories of the day’s adventures. Retreating to the comfort of your tent you can fall asleep listening to the sounds of the African Bush.
A typical safari day starts at sunrise, with Tea and Coffee around the campfire before we head out on an early morning game drive. The best time of day to enjoy game viewing is early in the morning and late afternoon as most animals are active in the cooler parts of the day.
Having spent the morning exploring the wilderness, we return to our camp for lunch, before a siesta or just relax with a book and the sounds of the wilderness.
Afternoon tea is served in the cool of the afternoon before you head out into the wilderness once more. We spend the days game driving and watching water holes as the animals gather to quench their thirst and marvel at yet another African sunset.
A quick breakfast is served before enjoying our final game drive in the morning, we head out of the park and return to Maun and Sitatunga Camp in time for lunch. You may choose to arrange an optional scenic flight over the Okavango in a fixed wing aircraft (price and availability are dependent on numbers) or just relax by the pool. Dinner is served in the camp restaurant.
