The best things to do in Chobe
WHAT ACTIVITIES ARE THERE AT CHOBE SAFARI LODGE?
Botswana's first national park remains its greatest, and there are so many thrilling ways to discover the wonders of Chobe National Park! A fantastic year-round wildlife destination, this enchanting elephant capital is also one of Africa's most accessible safaris.
Here are ways to explore Chobe.
Every activity can be booked from our on-site activity office at Chobe Safari Lodge or Chobe Bush Lodge
1. BOOK A SUNDOWNER SAFARI CRUISE ON THE CHOBE RIVER
Experience quintessential Chobe! Our spacious double-decker boats will treat you to some of Africa's best and most up-close game viewing. Chobe Safari Lodge and Chobe Bush Lodge are the closest Kasane accommodation to the Chobe National Park and sit right beside the park office. This means we're often the first on the water to enjoy the afternoon wildlife congregations.
Our expertly-guided riverboat cruise gently navigates these lively waters to sail past the hippos that leave the water to feed during the day, witness the large herds of buffalo and pause for elephants crossing. Our favourite has to be when they comically use their trunks as a snorkel!
Our deluxe boat cruise provides delectable snacks and five drinks to this outstanding wildlife experience.
2. HIRE A PRIVATE BOAT FOR A TAILOR-MADE RIVER CRUISE
Our Chobe lodges also provide private boat hire for a blissful morning in the wilderness. This means you have a personal guide to motor down the Chobe River that can curate a river cruise towards individual interests, such as in-depth birdwatching or specialise photography.
3. GAME DRIVE INTO THE CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
Before it became a national park, Chobe was a trophy-hunting ground and high-in-demand source of teak wood. This legacy endures, and Chobe is home to some of Botswana's most handsome antelope and glorious towering trees.
