Day 6-7 | Join 4 x 4 Game Drives or River Cruises in Chobe

In our Client's Words...

We started planning this holiday quite a while back and sometimes when you look forward to something so much you can be disappointed, but our holiday was perfect in so many ways. Our week on safari was outstanding. Peter, our guide was the best. He was really experienced, softly spoken and great with the kids. The accommodation was excellent and the camping experiences were great - on the first night we had a herd of elephants around the tent!
