We wanted to spend a full day on the river to do bird and wildlife photography as well as find soem specific bird species as part of a birdwatching exercise. Most trips offered are for 3 hours in the morning and another three hours in the evening, so we were referred to Steenbok Safari's by Gerard Meygaarden. The cost of the trip was P2250-o excluding food and drinks and included the park fees. Moabi met us at the Chobe Safari Lodge at 08h00 ( we were 10 minutes late ) and were introduced to our skipper and guide Charlie.
Charlie did an excellent job to get us around, helping to find the birds we wanted to spot and to position the boat for photography something he does about 4 times a year for specialised trips. The boat we used was a smaller one with a V-hull and therefore quite unstable for photography if one is not used to it. If a more stable boat si required, specify before hand so that a more flat bottomed boat can be provided. we got exactly what we specified for two people with different but overlapping needs and we could do exactly what we wanted without being encumbered by a large group of people. Charlie also keeps a sharp eye on the hippo's and although eh brings you as close as possible, he always he your (and his) safety at heart.
