3 Day Chobe Houseboat Safari

3 Day Chobe Houseboat Safari 

Route Description

Chobe houseboat safari starts in: Kasane immigration – Kasane, Botswana
Chobe houseboat safari ends in: Kasane immigration – Kasane, Botswana

Day 1: Kasane immigration – Chobe River

Guests meet up with their guide and boat, at the Kasane immigration facility in Kasane town, around 2 pm.

The afternoon is spent on the houseboat leisurely cruising up the Chobe River spotting animals and bird watching from the boat.

The evening is spent camping on the Namibian bank of the Chobe River.

Day 2: Chobe River

Spend the day on the Chobe River game viewing and birding. Game viewing from the boat is truly unique. You can get up close to the animals without disturbing them. Photography is great and it’s a smoother ride than a 4×4 game drive!

There will also be time to visit a local village on the Namibian bank to immerse yourself in the local culture.

This evening will be spent at another campsite along the Chobe River overlooking the Chobe National Park.
