    Este es un itinerario habitual de este producto

    Para en: Parque Nacional de Chobe, Parque Nacional de Chobe, North-West District

    Safari de avistamiento de animales de día completo en el Parque Nacional de Chobe con una diferencia. Debido a que le recogerán más temprano, esta es la hora con más opciones de ver algunos de los grandes felinos y animales nocturnos en el trayecto de 1 hora hasta la frontera por el Parque Nacional de Zambezi.

    Estará en la entrada del Parque Nacional de Chobe un poco antes de las 6.30 h para empezar el día con un trayecto de medio día de safari en el parque. Es la mejor hora para ver a los grandes felinos, ya que aún estarán activos y de caza. El trayecto continuará hasta el descanso para almorzar sobre las 12.00 h.

    El almuerzo tendrá lugar en el Chobe Safari Lodge (servido estilo bufé) y después del almuerzo tendrá tiempo para relajarse antes del crucero en barco por la tarde en el río Chobe. Se trata de un crucero de 3 horas que comienza por la tarde y termina sobre el atardecer. El crucero ofrece la oportunidad de ver muchos tipos de aves y otros animales mientras visitan el río para beber por última vez en el día y, por supuesto, el atardecer africano desde el barco en el río.

    Estará en la frontera de Zimbabue alrededor de las 19.00 h para el traslado de 70 km (45 millas) hasta su hotel de Victoria Falls. Una vez más, esta será una buena hora para ver a los felinos del parque Nacional de Zambezi, ya que habrán salido a cazar. Estará de regreso en su hotel alrededor de las 20.00 h.

      Wir wurden pünktlich um 5 Uhr von unserem Hotel abgeholt. An der Grenze zu Botswana wartete bereits der Safari-Jeep, so dass wir kurz nach 6 im Park waren. Viele Tiere waren zu sehen, besonders Elefanten, aber auch Hippos, Impalas, Zebras und und und ...Nach dem Mittagessen in der Safari Lodge ging es in einem kleinen Boot auf den Chobe, auch ein tolles Erlebnis. Mit das beste war, dass wir mit den Guides ganz allein unterwegs waren und die Tiere aus nächster Nähe sehen konnten.

      The experience was completely worth it. The drivers and guides were all very nice and knowledgeable. The safari guide was very accommodating to requests enabling us to see a lot of game. The River Guide was also very helpful with spotting animals and positioning us for good photos.

      This is a wonderful tour that combines a land portion and a boat portion. Both guides were excellent and maneuvered the jeep and boat so that we could get a better view of the animals. Definitely TAKE THIS TOUR!

      Recommend this tour to anyone. Half a day in a safari truck after a transfer from Zambia thru Botswana border. Easy as! Great setting with all the water if the Chobe River. Saw the main wildlife including Lions. Great buffet lunch at Chobe Lodge and then a boat trip to view the wildlife from water!

      Chobe Game Reserve itself is worth visiting, it has a varied terrain from low bush, savannah plains, and the Chobe river with an amazing number of animals on an island in the river. We spent the morning driving and saw lots of elephants, buffalo, fantastic bird life, and some zebra. We also saw a six foot black mamba. In the afternoon we went on a small boat on the Chobe river which pulled up close to the island in the river, where we had a close up view of elephants, including a group with a small calf swimming across the river. We saw many crocs, several buffalo, and lechwe on the island too. Lunch at the Chobe Game Lodge was a plentiful buffet, but it was surprising to see the dresert crawling with bees. The trip back to Zimbabwe was a bit hair raising because we were delayed at the border which was filthy, poorly maintained, and we felt gouged as Canadians, as we were charged 75.00 cash for single entry visas, and other folk with us on the trip were not charged at all. We would recommend that visitors stay in Botswana and enjoy Chobe, and not go from Zimbabwe. It was a tiring trip lasting 16 hours, but our guides were friendly and professional.

      This was an amazing trip. We saw a hyena at night on the way there and a southern African wildcat on the way back. In the park we saw lions, giraffes, zebras, crocodiles, monitor lizards, hippos, water buck, sable, kudu, impala, and many beautiful bird species. The most amazing experience was a large herd of elephants that came into the water in the evening to play and drink, with lots of baby elephants as well.

      Our extended day trip to Chobe was more than we hoped for. First off, we had THE ENTIRE DAY TO OURSELVES our own transfer to and from the Lodge Webster, who was awesome, our own safari vehicle and guide Moabi, and our own private boat cruise on the Chobe River.

      I cant say enough good things about our guide, Moabi. He was simultaneously knowledgeable and laid-back in his approach to guiding. He was even kind enough to bring a closed-door car to the border to pick us up in the morning because it was still chilly and drive us closer to the park before picking up the Safari Jeep once the sun had risen. He knew the geography of Chobe inside and out and had a keen ability to identify animal tracks and the best routes to find the animals we wanted to see. During a time of year when it was not expected for us to see lions March the end of the green season, we saw 15! We watched three adult females and about 10 cubs feast on a recent kill buffalo, and another pride of two female lions with a male. We also saw elephants, zebras, warthogs, buffalos, crocodiles, hippos, giraffes, turtles, impalas, a hyena, baboons, and a plethora of birds.

      Crossing the border could have been a nightmare, but it was seamless with Moabi. He also showed us where the four countries Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana meet, which was awesome and voluntary on his part. The boat cruise was also excellent a nice way to end the day and a way to see the park from a different perspective bring sunscreen!.

      If you want to get the best game-viewing opportunities, do the Extended Day Trip leaving at 5:00AM the full-day trip with a later pick-up around 7:30AM is, according to many, too rushed, and by the time you arrive at the Park it is already crowded. Get up early you can sleep during the transfer and it is well worth it!

      The trip itself was absolutely amazing! The organisation was fine, but not perfect: The trip includes hotel pickup, but I was never asked to provide which hotel we were staying at. Two days before the trip, I wrote an email to DK Tours and Safaris to ask if all is fine and tell them which hotel, but never got a reply in addition, it was very hard to find an actual email address for them on their partly broken and outdated website. Finally, the receptionist in my hotel managed to contact the operator and confirm the pickup, so all went well.

      Also, it was a bit annoying that visa fees may apply in addition, which are quite expensive for Zimbabwe - so this has to be taken into account beforehand. But this is mentioned in the description of the trip, so no hidden surprise.

      Early trip, 5 am pick up at hotel. This allowed for more time in Chobe for animal viewing. Very worthwhile! This was June, winter, so dress warm for open jeep trip in to park and early viewing as temperatures can be cool! Vehicle by operator not as nice as others we saw in park, but adequate. Lunch stop good, but too long a wait prior to the boat trip. However, boat trip was spectacular! Lots of hippo and elephant and ending with sunset views from the river. Worth the price for sure.

      First let me say that the tour operators were great - Webster with DK Tours in Victoria Falls was very helpful and because of our experience on this trip we booked another activity with him, and Maobi was a good guide in Chobe. My rating is more related to the activities on the trip - they were okay, but not awe inspiring like other locations we visited.

      The game drive was done nicely, with a tea/coffee break in the middle, and our guide Maobi was quite knowledgeable. Unfortunately we were not very impressed by the animal viewing, although we kinda cheated on this trip by going to Kenya before Victoria Falls. If we had not seen vast numbers of animals at Amboseli and Maasai Mara just before this day trip we probably would have been much more impressed. If you haven't been on another safari recently you would probably like Chobe just fine. In Chobe we saw lots of elephants including quite a few family herds with cute little babies, lots of impalas, lots of hippos, lots of cape buffalo, giraffes, zebras, water bucks, and crocodiles and I'm sure I'm missing a few other animals. There were also a lot of guinea fowl, several fish eagles, and lots of other birds.

      The river cruise was not really a cruise, but more a short jaunt from one grounding to the next to look at animals on the island or mainland. I was quite surprised how close we got to the animals - within 2 meters of a couple of crocodiles, about 1 meter from a water monitor, and 3-4 meters from some elephants and buffaloes. We prefer to observe the animals in their natural habitat as much as possible, so practically running into animals just felt wrong to us. The boat motor kept dying - partly because it seemed to be poorly maintained and mostly because we kept running in very shallow mud. We would sit at one location for quite a while after everyone was done viewing or taking pictures of whatever animal/bird we pulled up to. Our impression is that the guide had to waste time because the actual area covered on the cruise is quite small - at times this got a little annoying. Also, there were about 30 boats all doing the same thing, and we were often touching or being pushed by other boats. Then we made a mad dash along the Zambia side of the river so we could get back around the island to watch the sunset, which was the best part of the trip.

      This was the most unprofessional tour I have ever taken. I usually trust Viator with all my foreign tours and for the past 3 years things have been great. However, it seems Viator did not investigate this tour operator as he subcontracted our day trip with a cut-rate operator and the transfers were risky and not at all what the tour described- Air-conditioned mini van- This company picked us up at 5 am as stated and then took us the long way around to Chobe through the border waiting in a long line and instead of having a boat take us across the water he made us run and literally jump on a truck transport ferry. My daughter almost fell because the ferry is slick with oil and my nephew had to jump on because it just up and was pulling away from the dock. Once we got across to Botswana, we had to wait about 15' in the cold waiting for the van to take us to the Chobe park. When the transport finally came, the van was too small for our group 8 and we had to crame in the back seats. Once in the van we drove to the operators ouse and waited in his yard in the middle of a neighborhood for about 20-30 minutes until he backed out his safari vehicle which we then went to the park in. The ranger was a very nice man and we were able to see the animals but when it came time for our extended time on the river boat he had to cut it short because he said we had to get to the border before 6. At that point, I refused to return to the border via that truck ferry and was arguing with the DK tour agent on the phone--
      the stated local representative in the Viator voucher---for over 20' until he finally said he could get us a boat to take us back over the river to the border post. All in all - this tour operator should be investigated because I spoke at length with the concierge at our Hotel- Marriott Protea in Livingston- and she said she never heard of such a thing and we should have never been taken on that ferry as it is quite dangerous. and should have had a boat transfer from the start. You can call the hotel is you wish to verify my story. In addition, we didnt even get breakfast as the tour stated. Thank you for letting me help other travelers by warning them about the poor management of this tour.
