We offer you our river voyager, Nguni, which is custom made, for your African safari. Our area of operation is within a water wilderness and we offer a boat and guide per room, so you can have a choice of either;
Taking a safari on the Chobe River, Concentrating on the photographic opportunities of an environment considered the Jewel of Namibia, having a fishing trip with a “ happy ending “, or simply travelling through a piece of Africa in distinctive comfort and style.
Nguni is an owner run operation and would like to bring Africa’s’ premier, elephant viewing, tiger fishing and Sunset destination just a little bit closer and from our viewing deck a lot, lot closer.

Nguni Voyager Activities:
All activities will be conducted from tender boats. Each cabin will have its own tender boat and guide where possible, however staying aboard Nguni is an activity in itself. From the elevated position of the viewing deck you have a birds eye view of the surrounding floodplains and waterways.
Game viewing will take place on the Chobe River. Viewing game from the water is a memorable experience, the game does not feel threatened from a water born source therefore the photographic opportunities are exceptional.
The rivers have an enormous fish resource and therefore are home to magnificient water birds. Some of the iconic species of the area such as the African Fish Eagle, Mallachite Kingfisher, African Jacana and African Skimmer can be viewed easily from Nguni.
Visitors are able to experience their lifestyle by simply observing as they tend to their daily duties or be more participatory as guests in one of their villages. Here we have the opportunity to understand how they live their way of life.
The floodplain and wetland areas of the Zambezi and Chobe have a diverse ecological makeup. The opportunity to take guided walks is available over varying distances and within different habitats. The walking is comfortable as the terrain is reasonably flat and is not exclusively for the energetic.
