Activities On Offer
Elephant Bay Guided Game Viewing is an evening tender boat activity into the Chobe National Park and Caprivi Wetland areas, to the aptly named Elephant Bay. This natural harbour is away from the very busy river sections and allows you to enjoy the magnificent Chobe Sunset with the possibility of watching elephants playing and swimming in the Chobe River.
Zambezi River Excursion is an absolute must. The Kasai Channel is a small, beautiful waterway that is filled with a huge variety of birds, the occasional hippo and wonderful views of the Caprivi floodplains. It meanders from the Chobe River, ending at the majestic Zambezi River which is an iconic African river.
Guided Fishing (catch and release basis) in over 100kms of the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers for tiger fish, bream and several other fresh water species. The tiger fish is Africas great river sport fish and provides thrilling fun for those looking for an adrenaline surge. It is also a great excuse to spend a few hours peacefully on the waterways watching the birds, hippos and crocs at play. All fishing equipment (conventional and fly), bait and fishing licences are supplied.
Guided Walks on Impalila Island give you an insight into the life of local inhabitants, introduce you to the stark beauty of the area and amaze you with the enormity of the Baobab trees. The end point of the walk is to an ancient (over 2000 years old) Baobab tree which the more energetic can climb to see where Namibia, Zambia, Botswana and Zimbabwe meet, and the great Chobe and Zambezi Rivers converge. You will then be driven by vehicle back to the lodge.
Guided Birding is a must for all enthusiasts as this region is home to over 400 species of birds (in the summer months) including some of those in the ‘lifer’ category. African Skimmers, Rock Pratincoles, African Finfoot, Pels Fishing Owl, African Pygmy Goose and Black Coucals being but a few. So grab your complimentary birding checklist and our incredibly knowledgeable guides will be happy to accompany you on a tender boat through the beautiful Kasai Channel, or on foot on through the lodge grounds and onto Impalila Island itself.
