Get in sync with the timeless flow of life in the Botswana wilderness aboard one of the three Chobe Princess houseboats. Each of these sister vessels is its own totally private, floating ‘boutique hotel’. We cannot imagine a more special way to soak up the wild sights and sounds of the game-rich Chobe River!
Each beautifully appointed Chobe Princess has just four or five cabins, so your family or group of friends has the entire boat to themselves for your river safari. The warmly welcoming crew takes care of your every need, serving up delicious food and astonishing wildlife encounters to ensure your safari is the trip of a lifetime.
There is no set itinerary, so you are captain of your own destiny on the Chobe Princess. The top deck forms the best game-viewing platform imaginable – relax here on a deck chair, gin and tonic in hand, while you glide past the Chobe National Park’s abundant wildlife. Alternatively, head off with your guide on a smaller tender to explore the watery highways and byways. Your river safari will take you right up close and personal with enormous Nile crocodiles and Africa’s most dangerous animal, the hippo. Elephant and buffalo ford the river at many points, so you have a good chance of getting extraordinarily close to these massive creatures. Game viewing by boat is exceptionally rewarding as animals are more relaxed, allowing you a different perspective to the one you gain on a game drive. Birders, especially, will enjoy sightings of a lifetime as they tick off many of the park’s 500 resident bird species. Those looking for some action can try their hand at tiger fishing or take a guided walking safari or visit to a local village.
Evenings will find you mooring along the Chobe or Zambezi rivers. From here, look out for wildlife – including big cats – coming to the river to drink and listen to the awe-inspiring sounds of Africa’s nocturnal animals. Wake in the morning to a spectacular sunrise and decide exactly how you are going to spend another day in this wild paradise.
