CHOBE NATIONAL PARK & CHOBE RIVER

Safari in spectacular Chobe!

The Chobe National Park established in 1968 covers 11,700 square kilometres and is situated in the northern most part of Botswana. Park stretches from the tip of northern Botswana to the fringes of the Okavango Delta. It has a wide range of distinctive landscapes, from the emerald floodplains of the Chobe River to the sweeping grasslands of the Savuti Marsh and skeletal leadwood trees in the Savuti Channel.

Encompassing swamps, floodplains and woodlands it is the third largest Park or Reserve in the country after Kgalagadi Transfontier Park and the largest of them all the Central Kalahari Game reserve.

With such varied environments and habitats there’s a magnificent array of wildlife. A profusion of palatable grass species attracts a variety of herbivores, including wildebeest, impala, kudu, waterbuck, giraffe, and tsessebe. The puku is found, as is the endemic Chobe bushbuck. Predator sightings are good, with leopard, cheetah, wild dog, and large prides of lion that hunt elephant. From servals to side-striped jackals, the list is endless.

All that said, Chobe is most famous for its elephant and buffalo populations, both of which can herd in mammoth proportions. With an estimated 40,000 to 60,000 elephants, these gentle giants constantly surround you. In the dry season the Chobe River sees thousands lining the banks and crossing the water. Boat trips at this time provide excellent photograph opportunities.

The Chobe River forms its northern boundary and in the extreme south-west it borders the Moremi Game Reserve. The riverfront is a markable wildlife area due to the permanent water source of the Chobe River. Most wildlife activity occurs along the banks of the river – especially during the drier winter months (May – October) when animals congregate at the river to quench their thirst. The spectacle of all the animals coming to drink and frolic at the water’s edge is a sight t behold! Birding enthusiasts will find the riverfront a fantastic destination at this time with more than 400 species of birds, including migratory species and numerous birds of prey.

Victoria Falls Accommodation

Luxury tented camp

Lying just 4 miles from the rumble of the mighty Victoria Falls, this extraordinary luxury tented lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River is a bush paradise that exudes an old world charm, admits modern luxuries

Upstream of the iconic Victoria Falls in the Zambezi National Park lies a pristine piece of land on the banks of the Zambezi River. Nestled within this wild paradise is Old Drift Lodge, a place frequented by elephant, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, Lion and many other animals. The untouched natural beauty of the park is sprawled over 56 000 breath taking hectares.

The activities offered at the lodge emphasize the rich natural environment, focusing on the abundance of wildlife that roam through the Park and swim the Zambezi River. The Zambezi National park can be explored by road, river or
on foot, satisfying guests needs to experience every aspect of this natural utopia.

The Lodge speaks to the rich heritage of the area. A ‘drift or ‘ford’, is a shallow place in a river or stream where it is possible to cross safely without using a boat. Around 1898, the lodge location (originally known as Sekute’s Drift) was used as a crossing point over the Zambezi River between what was then Southern and Northern Rhodesia (today Zimbabwe and Zambia). The drift was at a point on the river, 7 kilometres above the Falls, where the river is wide but runs low enough during certain periods for safe crossing.

The main lodge area will have 360 degree views, north facing onto the Zambezi & south facing onto a water hole. Only 4.5 kilometres from the town of Victoria Falls, Old Drift Lodge is the closest lodge within the National Park to Victoria Falls.

Luxury boats transport guests to our natural utopia where we are able to accommodate guests in 10 double suites and 4 family suites.

The Lodge offers family friendly accommodation, with each air-conditioned suite decorated with stylish furnishings, fitting of the bygone eras, which blend in seamlessly with the natural environment. The spacious canvas en-suite rooms all have a private lounge, indoor and outdoor showers, plunge pool and an outdoor bath overlooking the Zambezi.

ACTIVITIES
Activities include morning and afternoon game drives along the banks of the Zambezi River and within the Zambezi National Park. The animals you can expect to see include the likes of general plains game such as impala, eland, dazzles of zebra and warthogs to the larger game such as buffalo, elephant, lion and even on occasion cheetah.
Due to its close proximity to Victoria Falls, you have ample opportunity to enjoy a vast array of activities – from the adrenaline fuelled bunji jumping, canyon swinging and white water rafting to the more sedate historical tours, river cruises and much more.

Chobe River House Boat

Chobe river safari days!

This boat takes your Chobe River game viewing experience to another level! With no set itinerary and only a small number of guests per boat, staying here feels like being on your own houseboat – and a very well appointed one! The entire boat can also be booked exclusively, giving you your very own private villa on the water. As you drift down the Chobe River and spot incredible wildlife scenes, you’ll be able to completely relax in an intimate river safari experience.

Each houseboat has a minimum of two smaller “tender” boats for use on daily excursions that take your fancy: mark off over 450 bird species found in this wetland paradise, try your hand at landing a tiger fish, or capture Africa’s unique beauty on a photographic safari. Whatever you choose to do, your day trips will be personal and flexible because you’ll be sharing the tender boats with a small number of guests. Alternatively, simply laze on a deck chair with an ice-cold drink in hand as you soak up the tranquillity that surrounds you.

Each cabin is tastefully decorated in a contemporary style, and each has its own private view onto the ever-changing landscapes beyond.
As you lie on your king-sized bed, spot an elephant grazing on the riverbank nearby, or see a fish eagle diving for its prey. On the upper entertainment deck, a spacious lounge and bar area encourages you to take time out while there’s also a plunge pool that’s perfect for a refreshing dip. After a day spent doing as you please, fall asleep with the calls of hyena or even a lion drifting through the open doors of your cabin.

The crew will pamper you with unaffected warmth and generosity, doing whatever they can to make this trip memorable. And as if their hospitality alone isn’t something to remember, the wildlife viewing will definitely remain in your memories for a lifetime. As you drift down the Chobe River, you will be exposed to incredible game viewing from several mooring points along the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers. Hop on the smaller tender boats and view wildlife from the water: a completely different experience from a game drive, as animals are more relaxed and at ease.

PASSPORT & CONTROL PROCEDURES:
The river boat operates on the Chobe River, which is a natural border between Botswana and Namibia. In order to check-in on the boat, from Kasane, you will need to exit Botswana and enter Namibia. Our houseboat Collections team will arrange all boat transfers required, the process will take around 30 – 45 minutes from the time of arrival in Kasane.

Guest will exit Botswana at Kasane Immigration office, before embarking onto the Chobe River followed by a 5 – 10-minute boat transfer from Kasane Immigration Office to Impalila Island, Namibia, where guests will go through Namibian passport control to officially enter Namibia (250 meter walk to the passport control office, assistance available where required. Please arrive in comfortable walking attire).
From here take a short boat ride to the boat, to begin your Chobe River adventure.
