Our group is hunting in August and the wives want to go to VF and do the day trip into Chobe. We have read about doing these day trips but are wondering if you need to make a reservation or if you can just show up in Chobe and do the safari. I think our outfitter would be able to take us to Chobe since it sounds like he would likely be coming with us. We want to do the morning river cruise and afternoon game drive but I think we will be staying in VF. The wives might go up a day or two before us if they are bored at camp so that is why we are wondering if we will need reservations or if we would be safe just showing up or not (or at the most having our outfitter call a few days before). Are there several boats that go out in the morning or is it just one boat? I tried contacting Chobe directly but didn't get a response. If there is anything particular you would recommend seeing, doing or place to stay (or avoid) at I'd appreciate any other input also!
