These interpretive expeditions are tailored to you and your preferences, whether you’re searching for a particular species or simply want to linger longer at some viewing spots.

The camp also offers one photographic river boat safari cruise per stay. Float along the iconic Chobe River in a super-stable Pangolin Voyager fitted with 360-degree rotating chairs and camera mounts.

The camp boasts a feather-light environmental footprint with no electricity, solar-powered lighting, bucket showers and meals that are prepared over hot coals.
