The Shearwater Chobe Day Trip in Chobe National Park is a two-part wildlife adventure on water and on land

One hour outside of Livingstone and Victoria Falls, Chobe National Park is home to the world’s largest elephant population.

The Chobe National Park is also known for its large lion population, buffalo herds, and spotting the elusive leopard. For bird lovers, there are more than 460 species of birds that reside here. For more on birding in Victoria Falls, click here.


This day trip is made up of two separate parts. The morning consists of a safari on the Chobe River while the afternoon game drive entails stopping at various points within the National Park for animal sightings.

After the river safari of approximately 3 hours, you’ll enjoy a buffet lunch at a local hotel and then hop into game drive vehicles for another 3 hours in the park.

Did you know that the Chobe River is one of the few rivers in the world that flows in two directions? In dry season, it flows eastward; but during rainy seasons, the Zambezi River pushes upstream to reverse its direction towards the West.
