 Chobe Game Reserve in Botswana



Arrive at Maun Airport , the ‘Gateway to the Okavango Delta’, where you will be met by your pilot and escorted to the plane for your shared flight to Chief’s Camp.  Approximate flying time 15 minutes.


Upon arrival at the Chief’s Camp private airstrip, you will be welcomed by one of the guides and transferred in 4x4 vehicle to the lodge.


On arrival at Chief’s Camp, the friendly local staff and camp management will greet you. As you sip your refreshing and non-alcoholic welcome drink, the camp managers will introduce you to Chief’s Camp, the surrounding area and the daily happenings within camp. They will then escort you to your luxury, tented accommodation, where your luggage will be waiting. The tents are on wooden decking, offering panoramic views of the Delta floodplain.


Depending upon your arrival time, you will be treated to a hearty lunch and might have time to relax by the swimming pool, shaded by large umbrellas. Your afternoon game activity will take you out on a mokoro (dugout canoe) into the waterways of the Delta (water permitting) or alternatively a game drive in the custom-built open 4x4 vehicle (individual seating). This is an ideal activity should you be a keen bird watcher, wildlife photographer or first time visitor to the Okavango Delta. Returning to camp at dusk, you are invited to enjoy a “sundowner” in the bar prior to/ after freshening up for dinner.

 Stanley's Camp in the Okavango Delta of Botswana



Early morning, fresh brewed tea and coffee enjoyed in your room will be followed by morning game activity. You will have a choice of either a mokoro trip or a game drive in the Mombo area, an area renowned for its abundance of wildlife. Whatever your choice, the game viewing opportunities are excellent. On a mokoro ride, for example, you will enjoy an experience unparalleled anywhere in the world. Gliding through papyrus-fringed channels (formed by hippos), you experience what the Chief of the Batawana himself might have felt. Armed with binoculars or a camera, you will be rewarded with birds in a rainbow of colours and indigenous wildlife found exclusively in the Delta.

A sumptuous brunch will be served when you return to the camp around mid-morning. This is a dining experience not to be missed- a fusion of African and Western cuisine, superbly blended into a Pan-African style of cooking! The day is then at your leisure prior to your late afternoon game activity and dinner.

 Chobe Game Reserve in Botswana



A fresh brew of tea or coffee will begin your day before you choose your last game activity. You will encounter intriguing habitats as you drive through the Chief’s Camp area: floodplain grasslands, riverine forest, woodlands, savannah and scrub. One may pass elephants, giraffes, warthogs, and impala and sometimes even lion, whilst walking through the different vegetation. Brunch will be served upon return to the camp. The day is at your leisure prior to your late afternoon check out.  Your guide will take you to the airstrip where you will meet your Mack Air pilot for your shared flight to the Chobe National Park .  

Arrive at Kasane Airport . A Chobe Chilwero representative will welcome you before the transfer to the lodge.  

In the local language of Setswana, Chilwero means "place of high view", an apt name for a lodge whose accommodations look out over lush flood plains towards Namibia on the horizon.   

The lodge offers 15 luxury air-conditioned units, each individually appointed with furniture and fittings from all corners of the African continent.  In addition, each unit has its own private "sala", both indoor and outdoor showers, along with large handcrafted sunken baths.  Chilwero also offers a split-level swimming pool, perfect for afternoon relaxation in the sunshine.  

For business that cannot be kept at bay, a small business centre is available for  telephone, internet and fax services.  In addition, a small library houses a television, VCR and slide projector should the equipment be required for nature talks or guest lecturers.


Safari activities at Chobe are diverse, exciting and tailored to suit individual requirements. Game drives are conducted in open 4x4 vehicles, normally in the early morning & late afternoon, under the leadership of qualified Botswana guides. The Chobe floodplain is renowned for its concentrations of buffalo & elephant. The late evening in particular, provides spectacular viewing. All vehicles are equipped with two-way radio systems, thus facilitating optimum sightings of the major species.


 DAY 4


Early morning wake up call with fresh tea, coffee or fruit juice and home-made muffins. Depart for game viewing activity, returning to the lodge for brunch.


For the lover of true, unspoiled Africa , a safari will capture the magnificence & very real essence of Botswana ’s natural landscapes & wildlife heritage. Game viewing & fishing from small boats is a special Chobe experience. Additionally, there is a sunset cruise, which provides spectacular wildlife viewing & vistas of an African sunset.

 Afternoon game viewing in the Chobe area, returning to the lodge for dinner.

 DAY 5


The Chobe National Park covers a wide variety of country: riverine forest, flood plain, periodic marsh, mopane and miombo woodland and a few rocky outcrops. Such a diversity of habitats implies a wide variety of wildlife, which ranges from water animals such as hippopotamus, crocodile, otter and fish, to forest and dry-land species such as elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra and eland. In all areas, predators abound, including lion, leopard, cheetah and both species of hyena!  Dependant upon time, you may be able to do a short morning game drive, then return to camp for a light breakfast before you are transferred back to Kasane Airport for your shared flight to Maun Airport . Approximate flying time is 1 hour 30 minutes.
