After breakfast depart for Botswana for a full-day trip into Chobe. Just an hour away from Victoria Falls you can experience a completely different safari experience by enjoying a day in the Chobe National Park and Chobe River. Depart from your Hotel at 07h30 and transfer to the Kazungula border post for your crossing into Botswana. On arrival, you need to pay $30 USD cash per person for the Botswana Tourism Levy fee. The transfer takes between 45 minutes and 1 hour. Upon arrival at the Zimbabwe border post, you will pass through the Customs and Immigration where your passport will be stamped and drive 1km up to the Botswana border post. At the Botswana border, you will be given an Immigration Form which you will need to complete before going to the Immigration counter with your passport. Once your passport has been stamped, you will return to the vehicle.
The morning begins with a river cruise into the park, with an opportunity to see a host of waders and water birds along with the ever present Crocodile and Hippos. Chobe is known for scores of large herbivores making their way down to the river to drink, most notably Elephants and Buffalos. On the islands, Puku and Lechwe are often seen and on the banks, Kudu, Impala and Water Buck are common. Soft drinks and water are included on the boat.
Enjoy a complimentary buffet lunch served at Chobe Safari Lodge, located bordering the National Park. Drinks are to be paid directly during your lunch.
