Game Viewing

game viewing

Half and full day Game Viewing excursions can be arranged on the Chobe River but it is an extra activity.

Game viewing does not get better than this: Close-up encounters with wildlife on a sunset cruise on the Zambezi and Chobe Rivers. In the dryer months, from September to November, the area teems with herds of elephants crossing the Chobe River. There is plentiful variety of game grazing on the open floodplains:

  • Bush Buck
  • Puku
  • Kudu
  • Hippo
  • Lion
  • Impala
  • Waterbuck
  • Sable antelope
  • Roan Antelope
  • Red Lechwe
  • Buffalo

Herds of 300+ buffalo are not uncommon in these parts. Leopard have also been spotted taking a drink on the banks of the river.
The Zambezi and Chobe Rivers are home to some of the largest crocodiles in Southern Africa and in cooler months you can see these impressive reptiles basking themselves on the riverbanks.
Hippo is also a common sight and you can even wake up to a Hippo grazing on your doorstep early in the morning.

Full and Half Day Trips into the Chobe National Park is an extra activity and can be arranged at the lodge.
