3-days 2 nights Chobe trip - where to book?

Hi All,

I am planning the trip to Victoria Falls (Livingstone) , Namibia and South Africa in October.
The part of the plan is to go to Chobe National park for 2-3 days (2 nights) tour. I am looking for the local (Zambia/Zimbabwe/Botswana) tour companies that provide this kind of arrangements.
I found Afrizim offers that, and sent them email a couple of days ago, but so far did not get any response.
Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Chobe safari Lodge or Chobe Game Lodge - both, offer good value for money.

I am looking to be there myself, later this year for a few days!

Chobe Game Lodge is the only lodge in the Chobe itself, so nice to be on site and not have to drive in every game drive. It is a big lodge, but actually really nice to stay in.

It is run by Desert and Delta Safari's. You can contact them on [email protected]

If you are planning to stay in Chobe you can relatively do a day trip to the Falls around 2 hours by car, unless you are planning to see other things than the falls. This will give you more time to view game.

Received the quote from Afrizim:

Return Transfers: Livingstone Hotel/ Chobe Safari lodge /Livingstone Hotel

Hotel/ Lodge Chobe Safari Lodge
Number of Nights: 2

Room Type: Standard

Basis: Dinner, Bed and Breakfast

Activities/ Extras: 2 x Game drives, 2 x River cruises and 2 days National park fees

R 4620.00 = roughly $610 per person

I added the similar service fees from www.chobesafarilodge.com site for comparison and got slightly bigger figure. Does this sound reasonable for this type of accomodation and services? Maybe somebody has the experience with similar itineraries there?

Thanks in advance!

Stayed at Chobe Savanna for three nights last October. Your prices sound similar to what we paid per night with similar activities and return transfers from/to Vic Falls. We saw lots of elephants, crocodiles, hippos, birds, antelope, etc. If you're interested, here are some photos of the Lodge and its facilities: http://www.jmstudio.fotopic.net/c1461488.html
