Day 1

07h30 Guests are picked up by the guide from their respective lodges and hotels either in Victoria Falls or livingstone Zambia . They will be transfred to Chobe Natioal Park botswana and are escorted through Immigration formalities. A short briefing will follow on some pertinent facts such as safety, and some regional information. At 09h30 guests board the boat and commence a 3 hour boat cruise into the Chobe National park. The river cruise is considered one of the highlights of the trip, as one gets the opportunity to get up close and personal with fantastic birdlife, hippos, crocodiles, and of course scores of elephant and Cape buffalo that make their way down to the river to quench their thirst. The boat cruise ends at the Coffee Buzz at 12h30 . After a satisfying meal then there is an opportunity to do any last minute shopping in Kasane, as there are no shops within the park for personal extras guests may require. Guests then do a game drive into the park, exploring the riverfront en route to Camp which is guaranteed to impress even seasoned Safari goers. This is the best time to see Chobe’s large herbivores making their way down to the river to drink.Return to camp shortly after sunset for drinks around the camp fire and dinner.

Day 2

Guests are woken at dawn with warm water being poured into their basins and a friendly Botswana “dumela” (good day). After a quick cup of tea or coffee and a light continental style breakfast, everyone departs on their  last game drive leaving the national park, to be dropped off in Kasane/Kazungula or transfered back to livingstone or Victoria Falls Zimbabwe between 08h30 and 09h00.

Day 2: -

Guests are woken at dawn with warm water being poured into their basins and a friendly Botswana “dumela” (good day). After a quick cup of tea or coffee and a light continental breakfast, vehicles head off on an early morning game drive. This time of day is best for finding the big cats, or possibly the endangered Wild dogs as they are still active at this time and chances of seeing them are good. Around mid to late morning guests return to camp for a delicious “bush brunch” and a siesta getting an opportunity to read, rest or take a refreshing shower.

When the day starts to cool off another afternoon game drive follows tea, and good sightings are revisited or areas as yet unexplored are visited. Chobe National Park has a wide variety of game - the cats and large herbivores such as elephant and buffalo being a highlight, but rarer game such as Puku ,Eland ,Sable and Roan antelope along with many more common antelope can be viewed here. Return to camp after sunset for a reflective fireside chat. Dinner follows, as always accompanied by the unforgettable sounds of the African night.

Day 3

- After another “dumela” dawn awakening and breakfast, guests leave the national park on their final game drive. This last drive may even prove to be the best and will with the others remain etched in memory as a truly great African experience. Guests are dropped off in Kasane/Kazungula or transfered back to livingstone or Victoria Falls Zimbabwe between 08h30 and 09h00..

GENERAL INFORMATION

We will be camping in the Chobe National Park in Exclusive Wilderness sites ie HATAB or BOGA sites, with no other campers nearby. If the sites are fully booked we will be forced to use the public site at Ihaha this is very rare though.

Included is all camping equipment including spacious walk in tents with a bed roll and bedding (mattress, sheet duvet and pillow). Park fees, food, mineral water and house wine with dinner are supplied. Dinner is a two course meal and cosists of hearty ‘Bush Cuisine” cooked on open fires.

Excluded are soft drinks, beers, visas if necessary and items of a personal nature like towels and toiletries. All trips will have a backup team, including a cook and minimal/no participation is required. Ablutions consist of rustic open air bucket showers and long drop style toilets. We attempt to work two departures weekly: ie on Tuesdays and Fridays. In the event of groups of over 6 these set days are flexible .
All trips will be run by skilled, licensed professional guides and a backup team.

What to pack for your tented Safari.


Generally, casual comfortable clothing is suitable throughout the year, dull neutral colours are most suitable.
Campsites are very sandy so suitable footwear is advised.
T shirts.
Jeans or safari trousers for the cool evenings and mornings.
A fleece or warm sweater for those early morning game drives.
A good pair of Sunglasses.
Sun block, a hat and insect repellent are essential!
Binoculars and a camera with lots of film! For digital ensure batteries are charged- there is no electricity in the bush (we can charge via the cigarette lighter 12V only)
A headlamp or torch is vital.
If you enjoy a whisky or the like, you are welcome to bring a bottle along to sip by the Campfire.
A towel, and your own toiletries (ladies please remember there are no shops for emergencies)
Any medication if necessary, we do have a medical aid box with the basics.
There will be times when you are exposed to the sun so a thin long sleeve shirt may come in handy.
The early morning drives will be very cold in the winter months - so layers are best to keep out the chill in the back of the game drive vehicle. (June,Jul,Aug)
Please attempt to travel as light as possible- space is always an issue on Safari.

Last but not least, a sense of humour …………this is Africa!!
