Spend the next two nights at Chobe Bakwena Lodge on a fully inclusive basis. Guided game viewing activities are included – either game drives or a river cruise along the Chobe Riverfront. The river cruise is a highlight of many a visitor’s trip to Botswana and the Chobe riverfront is very good for game viewing, with many loop roads.
