Your dedicated guide is from the local area and is extremely knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the area, and of course the local culture. He is also an expert poler in a dug-out canoe (mokoro) and an accomplished fisherman.
Keen fishermen can go out and fight for a catch and release Tiger Fish, or bring home a tasty Bream, which the kitchen will fry in batter and serve as your pre- dinner snack.
Game viewing is an exciting trip by speedboat on the Chobe River looking towards Chobe National Park - famous for its huge herds of wading Elephant. A quieter river trip is in a mokoro where you glide silently past colourful birds, Lechwe, Crocodiles and grunting Hippo. On occasion you may even see lions on the banks of the Chobe River.
Spot some of Africa's rarest birds in the varied habitats of the islands and surrounding floodplains: Rock Pratincole, Pels Fishing Owl, Pygmy Geese, African Skimmers. The islands offer many unrestricted walks, including an Afro botanical tree walk (learning about the traditional uses of plants and trees). Charter over the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers at an additional charge.
Another unforgettable river experience is a romantic beach picnic – A picnic lunch on a sandbank in the upper Zambezi, which gives the sense of being marooned on your own private desert island.
