Rates valid until December 2008
(subject to major fluctuation in the USD)
Cost USD 210.-

Day one — 08h30 guests are met at Kazungula by their guide and are escorted through Immigration formalities. There is an opportunity to do any last minute shopping in Kasane, as there are no shops within the Park. 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 “White Sands” at 12h30 where your safari guide will be waiting to do a game drive to your “wilderness” campsite for lunch. After a hearty lunch and settling in to your tents, you have tea and depart on an afternoon game drive—this being 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 two — 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 breakfast cereal, you leave the national park, to be dropped off in Kasane / Kazungula between 08h30 and 09h00.
