Guests will complete the necessary documentation a day prior and will undergo immigration formalities on the Zambian and Botswana borders during the transfer. Guests will be transferred to Botswana in a coach.
The guests will then proceed with a river crossing in 10 seater boats on a shuttle rotation basis. The crossing of the Zambezi River at Kazangula is the point where 4 counties meet. Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia. The crossing makes for an ideal photo opportunity. It is then a short drive through Kasane town.
The Safari starts in the Safari Vehicles waiting at the Border Crossing which will take guests into the park for a game drive to view some of the 45,000 local Elephants, buffalo herds, sable, wildebeest, giraffe, and with luck, some resident Lions and Hyenas. The game drive meanders its way back to the park gates and to the Chobe Safari Lodge in time for lunch.
Lunch: Guests will find a beautiful buffet with limited drinks inclusive upon their arrival at Chobe Safari Lodge. The whole group will enjoy lunch together.
After lunch it’s down to the jetty at the bottom of the garden and into the boats for a relaxed cruise on the Chobe River and a full complement of refreshments while the boat takes you close up to the waterfowl and wildlife on the river. Large flocks of birds, big pods of hippos and very large crocodiles can be viewed from the safety of your boat. The afternoon ends with the cruise taking guests back to a different Jetty site, nearer Kasane town where guests will disembark. Guests will then board awaiting vehicles to take then back to the border crossing where guests will undergo Customs and Immigration formalities and the crossing of the Zambezi River to the Zambian side.
