A Chobe Day Trip is a full day safari experience that includes a cruise on the Chobe River and a game drive in the world famous Chobe National Park.
A Chobe day trip is a unique opportunity to experience some of the best game viewing in Africa. A Chobe day trip is designed for visitors staying in Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe), that would like to visit the Chobe National Park in Botswana for the day. If you are visiting Victoria Falls and do not have the time for a few nights in the Chobe, a Chobe day trip comes highly recommended.
The Chobe National Park in only an hour’s drive from Victoria Falls, and is home to one of the largest wildlife concentrations in Africa. Bordered by the banks of the breath-taking Chobe River, it is famous for its rich elephant and lion population.
The Chobe day trip departs daily from Victoria Falls and begins with a road transfer to the Botswana (Kazangula) border. Once you have gone through immigration and have met your Botswana guide, you will travel to the Chobe River to embark on a morning game cruise. This water safari gives you the unique opportunity to view the abundant wildlife of the Chobe National Park on the banks of the Chobe River.
Lunch is then served at the beautiful Chobe Safari Lodge. Refreshments will be provided throughout the Chobe Day Trip.
After lunch you will venture into the Chobe National Park in an open game drive vehicle. The afternoon’s land-based safari heads deeper into the Park to spot the elusive big cats and massive elephant and big game species that make Chobe their home. After a full day in the Chobe you will make your way to the border post and start you journey back to Victoria Falls.
The order of the activities might change depending on the previous day's wildlife sightings (i.e. start with a game drive and end the day with a cruise or vice versa).
Please remember to bring your passport. Visas to enter Botswana may be required for certain Nationalities. You are responsible for any visa fees and requirements associated with entering or exiting Zimbabwe and Botswana. On entering Zimbabwe you may ask for a KAZA UniVisa or a double entry visa which will allow you to enter Zimbabwe twice without purchasing two visas.

A Day of Outstanding Game Viewing in the Chobe National Park
The Chobe Day Trip picks up from 7h00 sets off at about 7h30 from either Victoria Falls or Livingstone - destination Chobe National Park in Botswana. If you are coming from Livingstone, you will travel to the Kazungula Bridge and then across the river to Kasane. If you are coming from Victoria Falls, you will be transferred by vehicle to the Kazungula Border which is the border post between Zimbabwe and Botswana - a distance of 80km - here your Botswana Guide will meet you.
After completing the border formalities it's time for your first safari of the day which is a 3hr boat cruise along the Chobe River. This section of river is famous for its huge herds of elephant which can be viewed up-close and safely from the boat. Hippos, crocodiles and an abundance of birdlife is thrilling to see and experience. What a fantastic way to spend the morning.
The morning boat cruise ends at around 12.30pm in time for a welcomed and tasty lunch at a local restaurant.
After lunch it is time for an afternoon game drive in the Chobe National Park, where once again you have the opportunity to enjoy an abundance of wildlife as you explore the Chobe Riverfront by open safari vehicle. Large herds of elephant, buffalo and plains game, along with their accompanying predators have made this their home. It's very rare for this not to be a truly unforgettable game viewing experience.
Sadly the day is now drawing to an end and it's time to head home before dark. You will be transferred back to your hotel in either Livingstone or Victoria Falls arriving there at about 18h30.
