This is an extremely cost-effective way of enjoying what the Chobe River has to offer. It’s an ideal chance to become acquainted with the immense beauty of the Chobe flood plains (that are more like a lake when the annual floods come in April/May.) The game-viewing is exemplary, as is bird watching. You’ll cruise passed Sududu Island, source of a territorial dispute between Botswana and Namibia. The matter was resolved in 1999 by a ruling (in Botswana’s favour) of the International Court of Justice. Just five square kilometres in extent, the island is game-rich in the seasons when the area is not completely submerged by usual annual floods. The Chobe National Park on the Botswana shore is a wild animal Eden without peer. There’s always animals or birds to be observed.

This is a custom-made vessel built on the Chobe River. This delightful boat affords one a chance to really sit back in comfort with a drink of your choice to hand…as the boat glides through the stark and verdant landscape that comprises the national park and flood plains. Your host will later invite you to participate in a very tasty lunch on the restaurant deck, which is open on three sides for continued animal sightings. There’s always a hippo honking or a croc lurking nearby. The siesta deck is mainly an after-lunch spot to completely relax as the wild, wild world of Chobe comes to you. Sunsets are sublime, as you’ll indeed experience on the gentle cruise back to the jetty. Do enjoy this unforgettable day out in wild Africa!
Flame of Africa’s MD Brett Mc Donald got the idea of creating a floating restaurant on the Chobe River.

It’s so really terrific, really! Don’t miss this one.
Any freshwater angler in central Africa will tell you of the joy of hooking the aggressive tigerfish. This famous species is endemic to Africa and flourishes in the warm waters of the Chobe and Zambezi rivers. Or, you could opt for landing tilapia (bream), which many people enjoy eating because it doesn’t taste very fishy and is delicious fried or grilled.
