Chobe River Private Photo Safari 2018-06-04T05:51:34+00:00


Our group safaris are great fun but they have specific times that don’t always work for everyone. That’s why we are now offering fully customised PRIVATE safaris to the Chobe National Park. This private safari is  based on our Wild Waterways Group Safari.


This is what we will arrange for you when booking a Chobe River Private Safari with us:

  • Accommodation on land and/or houseboat on the Chobe for as long as you want to stay
  • Johannesburg overnight pre- and/or post-safari accommodation (highly recommended)
  • a private chauffeur between Johannesburg accommodation and OR Tambo airport
  • airfares and transfers to and from Kasane airport, Botswana


Optional extras:

  • specialised photographic boat trips (these boats are especially designed for photographers)
  • a private photographic instructor
  • equipment rentals of professional Nikon or Canon bodies and telephoto lenses
  • extensions to your safari experience anywhere in Southern or East Africa

Where Is It? 

The Chobe National Park is situated on the Chobe river, which forms the border between Botswana in the south and Namibia in the north. There are both water and land access points to the park so it is possible to combine them on your safari so that you can experience the best of both worlds while exploring this unique and wildlife abundant part of the world. While you are on the houseboat you will be officially in Namibia and while you are in the Kasane lodges you will be officially in Botswana. Border crossings are a simple affair and our guides and operators will help you every step of the way.

When Should We Go?

This is a personal preference as to whether you prefer hot or really hot! Summertimes on the river (October – March) can be very hot and cooler months will be chilly in the mornings but will warm up as the day progresses. There will always be wildlife to photograph regardless of the time of year and our guides will ensure that you get exceptional photo opportunities.
