Project Description

Houseboat and Tented Camp Safari

This safari will divide your time between the Pangolin Tented Camp deep in the Chobe National park with another three nights spent on board the Pangolin Voyager Houseboat. This is the perfect safari combination for the region where you will see the best of what the area has to offer from both land and water. Both the camp and the houseboat sleep only 10 people maximum offering a sense of exclusivity and seclusion. This size makes it ideal for small groups or families travelling together.

From: $2 250 pps

Duration: 7 Days

Itinerary

This 7-day itinerary is hosted by one of our photo guides who will be on hand to help you make the most of all the photo opportunities that present themselves.

The first three nights will be spent at our tented camp in The Chobe national park. The campsite is private and used only by us for the duration of your stay. We have 4 large walk-in tents with proper beds with quality linen, pillows and blankets. Behind the tent is an en-suite bathroom with a shower and a toilet.

In the camp we have one extended 8 seater game viewing vehicles which means that everyone has plenty of room and a window seat. The guides know the area like the backs of their hands and you will spend the mornings and afternoon exploring this area of The Chobe looking predominantly for plains game like zebra, giraffe, kudu, buffalo as well as elephants and various predators that inhabit the area. The game drives produce many sightings of lions, leopard, hyena and sometimes wild dog which traverse this region.

In the camp we have a dining area under canvas where all the meals are served. The staff in the campsite produce wonders from their kitchen and you will be kept well fed throughout your stay. We have a very good solar electricity supply in camp for the charging of camera batteries and laptops (for picture viewing and editing).

In the evenings the meals are served around the large communal dining table and then you will be invited to sit around the fire enjoying the sounds of the African Bush while warning yourself against a roaring open fire. Africa at it’s very best!

On the fourth day you will travel through the Chobe National Park towards the town of Kasane where you will check out of Botswana and into Namibia, by boat, to join up with the Pangolin Voyager. The Chobe River is the natural border between these two countries and the houseboat is based on the Namibian side.

Like the tented camp the houseboat sleeps a maximum of eight guests in four double or twin cabins (they can be made up as either). There are three levels with the cabins being on the lower deck, the dining and lounge areas in the middle and the viewing deck on the roof. All of the cabins are air conditioned and have ensuite bathrooms with showers and a toilet.

While onboard The Pangolin Voyager there is plenty to do. We have specialist boats alongside for general game viewing and photography as well as other boats to take you to visit a local village. Alternatively, the viewing deck is a great place to unwind with a good book and watch the world go by as we drift along The Chobe River. The itinerary onboard is for you to design.

Again all the meals are taken as a group on the middle deck. There is a fully stocked bar and all the drinks are complimentary. The chefs onboard produce delicious meals throughout the day from their galley.

This combination is the perfect way to see The Chobe and it’s ideal for travellers who want to make the most of this amazing photographic destination. After you leave us we can suggest perhaps visiting Victoria Falls which is less than two hours away or perhaps continuing your safari onto The Okavango Delta. Our travel planners can organise your whole itinerary so please mention that you are interested in extending your safari when you contact us if this is the case.
