Boat Safaris

Boat Safaris

A uniquely Chobe perspective

No Chobe safari is complete without experiencing the beauty of the Chobe River and its incredible wildlife by boat.

Our ‘skimmer boats’ accommodate up to 12 guests on comfortable adjustable deck chairs. Our boats are designed specifically for relaxation and viewing, allowing you to take in the Chobe’s stunning vistas. The flexible seating and level deck make them a photographer’s dream, offering ample space for equipment and the freedom to shoot unobstructed from any vantage point.

The game viewing while on a river safari in Chobe is unsurpassed anywhere in Botswana. Elephant line the water’s edge, hippo congregate in lagoons, hundreds of antelope and giraffe make their way to the water and sightings of predators along the river banks are common.

Chobe Game Lodge pioneered the use of electric boats when we launched the first electric powered boat (and game vehicle) in 2014. These days we have four electric boats, of which three are fully solar.
