Brilliant way to start our holiday in Botswana. Bird & wildlife is excellent & viewing from Namibian side has the advantage of being quieter. Highlight was a family of otters at the rapids but no shortage of elephants, giraffe, hippos & buffalos!
We were able to cover large stretches of the river in small fast boats. Guide extremely knowledgeable & staff were excellent as was food & accommodation.

Nguni's area of operation boasts home to over 500 species of birds. Nguni operates on the Chobe & the Upper Zambezi rivers which are not only well known for their prolific game and birding experience, but also house a couple of surprises beneath the water’s surface in the form of Tiger fish, Bream & Barbel. Our guides are local experts on how to land the big one. Nguni's prime fly fishing season opens in May and continues on through until August. During this season the river has dropped after its flood and the fish are hungry. Any fly fisherman's dream. During the months of November through to February fishing methods range from spinning, drift bait, trolling and fly fishing for the more experienced fisherman. ... more less
