Picture yourself on Botswana's serene Chobe River listening to the soothing sounds of nature. A gentle breeze cools your face while you watch the abundant wildlife grazing on the riverbanks. That very moment is when the allure of Africa enthralls you.
Here are three things that make Chobe the ultimate destination for romance:
#1 Spectacular Chobe Sunsets
There is nothing quite as picturesque as a Chobe sunset. Watch the sun paint the African sky with a range of bright, mesmerising colours, ranging from orange to red and purple, as it slowly descends below the Chobe skyline. Observing the last rays of sun making the water sparkle as they touch the river surface is a truly spectacular affair.
#2 Fine Dining Onboard a Safari Boat
Those of us who love a little romance certainly know that an intimate dinner is an instant way to create that special ambiance. Watch the Chobe River drift gently by as you sip your wine and linger over desert onboard the Zambezi Queen or one of its sisters, The Chobe Princesses. Dining onboard a safari boat with the stunning African scenery as your backdrop is certainly fine dining at its best.
#3 Memorable Safari Moments
Chobe is famous for its elephants. Watching one of Africa’s most lovable creatures - the vast herds gathered at the water’s edge, and babies splashing and playing - is an experience that needs to be shared. For close-up game viewing set out by boat, snuggled up next to your partner while watching a herd swim across the Chobe River.
It's a moment the two of you will never forget, as the magic of Chobe works its way into your heart.
