Chobe day trip ex Livingstone Zambia

Vic Falls

Activity Description

Full Day Chobe Trip from Livingstone, Zambia. Enjoy game viewing in this iconic park. Chobe National Park is well known for its large herds of elephant that frequent the Chobe River on a daily basis. In the dry season an estimate of up to 85,000 elephants can be dispersed within the Chobe National Park, where the majority of them can be found along the river. Apart from the herds of elephants, Chobe also has lots more to offer. The Park has lion, leopard, buffalo and a whole host of antelope like sable, puku, kudu, eland, roan and many others which you can get to see. The river is filled with big pods of hippos and some of the biggest crocodiles in Africa.

This tour departs daily to the Chobe National Park in Botswana. Clients will be transferred to the Kazungula border where their Botswana guide will meet them. They will proceed straight to the morning cruise where they will spend the morning game viewing along the Chobe River. The cruise will end at around 12h30 and clients will go to a hotel on the riverbank for lunch. After lunch, guests will board safari vehicles for an afternoon game drive in the Chobe National Park. Following this they will be taken back to the Kazungula Border where they will be met by their Zimbabwean guide for their return transfer to Victoria Falls.

Customer Reviews

There were four people total in our car -- picked up from our hotel and taken to the ferry terminal. Up to this point, everything was going smoothly. We were transported to the other side -- and told that we would be met by the company/people who would be taking us to Chobe. We were not given the name of the company or any other information. We sat and waited, and watched as other people came across, were met by their guides, gone into their cars and left. Nobody seems to know why our vehicle/driver/guide was not there or even if they were just delayed (but on their way) or not coming at all. This was a rather frustrating start. We all would have understood if the driver was delayed. These things happen but the guests/clients should be informed. It is easier to be understanding and accommodating when we are kept in the loop. Instead, we encountered people who just shrugged their shoulders. I strongly recommend that you instruct your drivers and employees, particularly at the ferry crossing and the Botswana side, to take this onboard. Once we did get underway, the trip improved significantly. The boat ride was wonderful. The land part was rushed - and most of us felt like we missed out on incredible photo moment. At least six people in our party would have preferred to have gone BACK OUT on the boat in the afternoon...so two boat rides instead of boat ride followed by a drive. I think the excursion could be greatly improved by offering the clients a choice. - Arif Babul


The Chobe day trip from Livingstone was wonderful. Our driver was on time and gave us lots of information on the local area as we proceeded to the border crossing. The next driver was ready for us and the transition into Botswana was smooth. The 2nd driver was very informative as well. We had an excellent river safari with the vessel crew. Lunch was good at the Chobe lodge. The land based safari in Chobe National Park was very interesting . At the end of our safari the transitioning was smooth again. I was very pleased with our day trip. The views along the Chobe River were beautiful and loaded with wildlfe - Joseph W. Prichard
