A wonderful restful way to recharge your batteries in the African bush. View game like buffalo, elephant, Impala, crocodiles and so so much more from the comfort of the house boat. Feast your eyes on an abundance of birds ... Spectacular bird life.

We had some excellent sightings along the river, Hippo, Buffalo, Elephants and loads of plains game. Well worth doing together with game drives. The crew were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

If want to see one of the faces of real, wild Africa you should experience this cruise. The words, if you love the nature, can’t describe the feelings. Tip: Is mandatory to catch the sunset!

Great tour guide taking us on a two hour journey getting up very close to crocodiles and elephants. Thoroughly enjoyable and informative- saw some unpleasant but natural animal kills which added to the experience. Fantastic.

Did the Chobe river cruise in the morning and a land game drive in the afternoon. Nice to see the animals from 2 different view points.

We had completed a 10 day trip around South Africa & thought this would be a nice relaxing way to finish our holiday. We were pleasantly surprised with the close access we could get to animals by river rather than by car. I jokingly told...More

We booked a three night/four day cruise on the Chobe Princess 2 in order to experience a somewhat more relaxed way to view many animal than the land-based safaris. There were only eight passengers on the boat which made it very comfortable. The rooms were...More
