House Boats

Houseboat safaris are a wonderful way to experience the wilderness of Africa. The boat makes a fantastic photographic platform allowing you spectacular scenery and wildlife shots. Whether you are viewing game from the decks, fishing or relaxing in the sun on the top deck, houseboat safaris offer you a different way of exploring Botswana.

Chobe houseboats are located on the Chobe River near Kasane in Botswana. Chobe National Park is a popular destination and fills the horizon of the Chobe houseboats. Chobe houseboats offer tranquil locations overlooking the Chobe floodplains. It is known for some of the best sunsets in Southern Africa.

Morning and afternoon game viewing, birding or fishing can be enjoyed in small tender boats, which can easily manoeuvre into smaller channels and onto the shore. Spend the hottest part of the day on the deck; sit back and enjoy the view and cool breeze while the boat is moving on to another spot and adventure. Game viewing by boat is a remarkable experience – see huge herds of elephants come down to drink at the water’s edge as well as other game such as buffalo, giraffe, leopard, lion, kudu, waterbuck, puku, lechwe, impala and baboons.
