Chobe – Stepping Under the Sky
Today you begin to understand the endless romance that sits in and under the African sky. Once in Johannesburg you will find yourself soaring through the day once more on a short journey to Kasane, Botswana. The town sits next to Chobe National Park, a mixture of elegant river, remarkable floodplains, and vibrant trees, where the landscape is equally as dynamic as the wildlife it houses. The entire park encompasses more than 19,700 square miles and is home to the largest concentration of elephants in Africa, numbering around 30,000.
From the graceful shimmer of sunlight along the riverfront to the swaying trees, you feel nothing but comfort within the charming landscape. When you come to Kubu Lodge, you find the majesty of the river at your doorstep, overlooking the sensational landscape from the restaurant or from your private balcony. Your room offers you the combination of romantic seclusion and the majesty of wildlife that stretches along the riverbank; from hippo to elephant, impala to buffalo, you can witness the elegant display of nature within the luxuries of the lodge.
In the late afternoon you can climb aboard a river cruise and venture out onto the water. The sunset brings a stunning wash of oranges and reds to the horizon while you watch over the boat to find wiggling ears and popping bubbles within the stretch of grassy marsh at the center of the wide waterway. The hippos sit submerged, soaking their bodies and protecting their delicate skin from the remaining sun as you watch the last of the day’s light retreat.
