Most people are unaware just how close The Chobe is to Victoria Falls – which is surely on everyone’s bucket list! The Falls are at their most spectacular in the months from May through to September when the Zambezi floods with waters from the Angolan Highlands.
For all guests staying at the Pangolin Chobe Hotel for four nights or more, we will include a day trip to see the Falls as part of your stay- Free Of Charge*
If you are feeling like treating yourself to an amazing experience we can even arrange to add on a helicopter flight over the falls in the afternoon!
Perched on the plateau above the Chobe River, and a stone’s throw away from the border of the Chobe National Park sits the Pangolin Chobe Hotel.

Guests staying in any of the 14 beautiful air-conditioned rooms spend the mornings and afternoon out in the National park on our signature photo activities – with DSLR cameras and telephoto lenses supplied free of charge. Each activity if host by an award-winning wildlife photographic host who is on hand to help you capture amazing images in the best year-round photo destination in Africa.
In between the activities we invite you to relax in the hotel, by the pool or on your private balcony interrupted only to feast on delicious meals presented by the chefs! For guests staying for four or more nights, we include the option of a free day trip across to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe – which less than two hours away by road.

When visiting Victoria Falls its always a good idea to have something waterproof to protect your camera from the spray – especially when the falls are at their fullest. There are several vantage points for great shots along the clifftop path but other sections can be rather like standing in a shower!
