Our tour started by hotel pick-up at Avani Victoria Falls Resort, Livingstone. The operator on the Zambian side, Maano Adventures, kindly confirmed the pick-up time the day before by e-mail, which was helpful for us to prepare for the tour, such as breakfast of the day. Moving to Kazungula by their car was smooth and comfortable including handing over to the operator on the Botswana side who really helped us when entering the country. I have to note that birth certificate(s) is a "MUST" when you bring your children to the tour! Both safari cruise and safari along the bank were beautiful. We spotted many animals, birds and reptiles. The Landcruiser we used was a bit packed, which was only very marginal dissatisfaction during the tour. Return trip to Livingstone was also well arranged, and we had no problem with closing the one-day exciting tour peacefully. Thank you very much!
Enjoyed the day trip safari very much. Saw so many animals, especially elephants and giraffes, very close up. Our guide was very informative and tried hard to get us to see as many of the Big 5 as we could. He knew Chobe park well, which was great for us. The hotel pick-up and getting through customs went very smoothly thanks to the guide who stayed with us all day. The lunch buffet was a nice break in between, and the food was really good and varied. Thanks for a great tour and a great day.
Lovely journey to Botswana through Zambia and Botswana to Chobe. The park was lovely and very green this time of year. We saw a great variety of birds and animals especially very close to a mother and baby elephant. Also two Male lions. The cruise on the Chobe river we saw hippos crocodiles buffalo and birds as well as various antelope. Unfortunately being the rainy season it rained and reduced our views. Guides were excellent and it was a very enjoyable day .
Booked the sunrise to sunset tour to chobe national park so that I could get in early before the crowd. Got to see zebras on the way. There is no lion in Chobe National park. If you must see, don't choose here. Got to see giraffes, elephants, hippos, impalas and gibbons everywhere! The sunset setting on the river was amazing.
We loved both the boat safari & game drive. So many animals to see and great guides! Everything was on time & went smoothly. Thanks Enock - Anita & JC
