Aug 14, 2017 - Chobe National Park, Botswana

Day 6 - Fri, Aug 11, 2017 Enjoy game-viewing drive • Fly to Johannesburg The plan for today was to find the white rhino. We searched all morning but we had no luck. Back at camp, we finished packing, checked out at Thornybush and headed to the airport for our trip back to Johannesburg. We spent the night at the same O.R. Tambo Protea Hotel that we stayed when we arrived on the 7th. The next morning, we met up with 4 more people for the main part of our trip and went back to the airport for our flight to Victoria Falls airport in Zimbabwe....

Mar 27, 2015 - Chobe Game Lodge

Maud, our Botswanan naturalist guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and drove that jeep over the rough terrain and sandy ground like a pro. We liked her very much. I also forgot to mention that the jeeps were all battery operated, so not much noise and no pollution.

Mar 26, 2015 - Our time at Chobe National Park

It's Saturday morning, March 21, and we have said a teary goodbye to our lovely, knowledgeable, passionate guide, Beverley Gossayn, who is most surely one of South Africa's treasures! Our trip here is winding down with exciting days ahead, and as I write this, looking out the window of the plane, I see a beautiful sight, flying up into the brilliant blue sky through towers of puffy white clouds of all different shapes: a Sphinx-like formation, a family of bears, smiling puffy faces. You can let your imagination run wild. The plane is now...

Mar 24, 2014 - Chobe Marina Lodge

Hello from Chobe Marina Lodge in Kasane Botswana. This morning we got up at five a.m. To go on a jeep safari. It was three hours of watching impalas and elephants - we saw a vulture and many other beautiful birds. Saw lots of hippos too but no lions. Came back to the lodge for lunch. Then most of our group went on another safari again but we and another couple decided to do a walking tour of a native village. It was really hot as we walked about a mile in. We saw the village of about 50 people with the chiefs house in the middle. All the...

Dec 1, 2012 - Chobe River und Nationalpark

Erster Advent und ich bin weit weg im warmen Afrika! Es fühlt sich garnicht an wie Weihnachten, obwohl hier schon überall Weihnachtsdekoration hängt. Nachdem wir heute Nacht unter den Baobab Bäumen geschlafen haben, sind wir sehr früh aufgebrochen um gegen Mittag in Kasane am nächsten Campingplatz zu sein. Um 15.00 Uhr wollten wir auf eine Bootstour in auf dem Chobe River durch den Chobe Nationalpark machen. Leider hat es erneut geregnet, sodass der Anfang der Tour eher nass als gemütlich war. Aber sobald wir die Grenze des Parkes überquert...

Nov 8, 2011 - Chobe River Sunset Cruise

Ok so we left Zambia campsite early - crossed on the ferry and went over the border into Botswana. - Set up camp and then relaxed a little before going for sunset cruise on the Chobe River. - Was a beautiful cruise - saw lots of wildlife and started to get to know some of the new people. Have a much more multi-lingual group now - several germans, swiss and italian. One Italian guy doesn't speak English which must be hard for him. - After the cruise returned to camp for dinner then had couple of drinks in the bar.

Aug 30, 2011 - Chobe National Park

De volgende morgen vertrekken we terug naar de bewoonde wereld – terug 4 uur waggelen in een bootje. Nadien vlug alles in de truck want Jaco moet ons veilig naar Kasane rijden op de weg vol gaten. Hij is echt wel een superchauffeur en hij helpt me altijd wel met mijn tent, want ik ben de enige die alleen is. Hij leeft in zijn “mothertruck” zoals hij zelf zegt. Als we aankomen is er een zwembad op de camping. Raad eens wie er direct in zat ? 31/8 Vandaag gaan we gamedriven in Chobe National Park. In het park is de Choberivier en we zien dus...

Jul 28, 2011 - Chobe National Park

5.45am start for a game drive in an open vehicle – very cold but provided with a blanket. After previous early morning drives we knew to rug up! Our driver was a hoon – slipping and sliding through the sandy tracks at speed. It started as a bit of a DIY tour, he just kept driving past wildlife without stopping. We managed to see kudu, jackal, impala, guinea fowl, water buck, hippo, croc and giraffe. The best sightings were a herd of water buffalo plus a great sighting of a female leopard and her cub. About 10 vehicles chased like a...

May 1, 2010 - Chobe Chilwero Lodge near Kasane, Botswana

Chobe Chilwero Lodge near Kasane, Botswana, Saturday, May 1, 2010 After another very early breakfast, we went on a game drive in Chobe National Park, which the hotel borders on. The game animals are not as plentiful here as in the Okavango Delta, and there are lots of tour jeeps from various lodges. No lions, but we did see lots of giraffes and elephants, as well as impala and Cape Buffalo. The birds are gorgeous here. We had a delicious lunch and a good nap before setting off on another river cruise which was spectacular. We got a close...

Apr 30, 2010 - Chobe Chilwero Lodge near Kasane, Botswana

Chobe Chilwero Lodge near Kasane, Botswana, Friday, April 30, 2010 This morning we slept a tiny bit later and went for a mokoro ride after breakfast. The mokoro is a dugout canoe which used to be made from a tree trunk, but today is made from fiberglass, but still the same shape, and is poled by a guide standing in the back. The 45 minute ride was wonderful, with close-up views of tiny frogs as well as birds. It was very peaceful and relaxing, reminding of us kayaking at home. We then were driven to the dirt airstrip where a male lion was...
