Tour Overview

With only a small number of guests, a stay aboard a Chobe Princess houseboat provides an intimate and relaxing river safari as you drift down the Chobe River experiencing incredible wildlife scenes. Enjoy daily excursions in tender boats with knowledgeable guides; mark off over 450 bird species found in this wetland paradise, try your hand at landing a tiger fish, or capture Africa’s wildlife with your camera. Alternatively, simply laze on a deck chair with an ice-cold drink in hand as you soak up the tranquility that surrounds you. Larger groups also have the opportunity to book the entire houseboat for their very own private villa on the water. 2, 3 & 4 night stays available (this is a sample 3 night itinerary).
