Cruise The Chobe In Style
Our luxury CHOBE STYLE cruiser offers two decks of couch- style seating and whether topside or below there’s 360-degree viewing to search for the vast herds that comprise Africa’s greatest collective gathering of elephant.
She’s perfect for private or corporate groups of up to 18 guests, enabling an intimate camaraderie as the vessel gently navigates along a 3-hour-long route that encompasses the game-abundant banks and inlets of the fabled Chobe River,- where the ‘Famous Four’ (elephant, buffalo, lion and leopard) gather instinctively along with giraffe and zebra and a wide variety of large and small buck species. Enjoy close encounters with honking hippos and lurking crocodiles as the boat glides along the expansive Chobe flood plains.
The possible presence of at least 460 bird species promises a pure nirvana for twitchers…and binoculars are a must to make the most of observing their quaint individual behaviours and characteristics. Our crew is close at hand to offer warm hospitality and attentiveness, whilst later serving finger snacks and delicious hors d’oeuvres.

On board: Our professional guide will host you all day. Flame of Africa’s own CHOBE STYLE river cruiser offers VIP-style luxury and comfort, with toilet facilities and Cash Bar.
Enjoy: The CHOBE STYLE is a luxury cruise with soft, comfortable seating. Open on all sides, the game and bird viewing is exemplary from the Chobe River’s most luxurious cruiser. You’ll find your host attentive and eager to please. Get his attention and he’ll be with you in a jiffy. The Chobe flood plains are magnificent in their expanse and beauty. From the boat you can see what’s going on around you all the time.
The CHOBE STYLE is of a dimension that it can venture into smaller creeks for closer access to wild animals and birds, which congregate in these ideal conditions in great numbers throughout the year. Hippos and crocs are in sight most of the time.
When: This luxury cruise departs three times a day from the Cresta Mowana Resort in Kasane every day of the year.
Where: Meet your professional guide at the Cresta Mowana Resort reception and he’ll escort you to the jetty directly below the hotel.
Time: The first cruise of the day departs at 08:00. There is a midday departure at 12:30 and another at 15:00, which enables one to enjoy a glorious sunset and traditional ‘sundowners’ on the way back to the hotel jetty.
Minimum Guests: The cruiser will depart with a minimum of two guests and can carry a maximum of 18 guests.
What to Pack? Binoculars will always enhance any game-viewing experience and will be a real boon for bird lovers, who will be more than thrilled with the many species that come and go in this region. You will of course come with long lenses for greater distance images. Don’t forget extra batteries. Sunscreen and lip balm are more than helpful in these dry conditions and carrying ‘wet wipes’ are ideal for freshening up your face, neck and hands. Sunglasses will soften the glare – especially in the middle of the day. Do bring along small packets of tissues. In cooler months (periodically late May through September) we advise bringing a jacket, jersey or shawl. We offer blankets and ponchos.
