1. Spectacular Sunsets
The Chobe sunsets are simply magical. Sit back on the deck of the luxurious Zambezi Queen or one of its smaller sisters, the Chobe Princesses and drink in the views. Celebrating the sunset, with drink in hand on one of these sublime houseboats on the Chobe River is incomparable. It's hard to beat sundowners in the Chobe.
It is not hard to believe why the channels of Chobe are referred to as a birder’s paradise. With over 450 species found in the grasslands and waterways of the Chobe National Park, the area is a sanctuary to a variety of species, ranging from the Giant King Fisher to Bee-Eaters and the remarkable Fish Eagle. There is something enchanting about listening to the beautiful sounds that fill the air and turn into a melodious choir.
3. Extraordinary Elephant Encounters
Chobe National Park is home to thousands of elephants. View these beautiful grey beasts, from your boat, as they frolic in the river in huge herds or snorkel in the refreshing water with their trunks lifted up in the air.
Catching the impressive tiger fish is every fisherman’s dream. Chobe is a prime location for fishing with over 100km of fishing waters to explore in the Chobe and Zambezi rivers as well as the Kasai Channel. Every fishing trip is a thrilling affair with an opportunity to snag a diverse selection of species hiding in the underwater world.
5. Intimate Wildlife Viewing
Elephants are not the only famous terrestrial wildlife roaming around the vast plains of the Chobe National Park. Spot the mysterious, shy leopard lounging up in a tree or a herd of graceful antelope grazing leisurely on the riverbanks. The best way to view wildlife is onboard a houseboat, where the Chobe wonders are literally on your doorstep. See a crocodile peeking its head above the river surface or a hippo relaxing in its river home whilst you cruise down the wide waterways.
