This is not a cruise! At most they sail between moorings, but we did not even travel that far. We have been on at least 12 safaris, and thought a river cruise would offer a new perspective. We found that in addition to not moving from Chobe Park (where we had already spent 3 nights), the boat offered more cramped accommodations, and the food and wine was not as good. They offered boat rides on the Chobe River. We had done that several times during our stay at the beautiful Chobe Chilwero Lodge. They offered one game drive in Chobe Park. We had already done that numerous times. They are not a cruising river boat. They are just a hotel on the water that offers accommodations inferior to what you can get if you stay on land at Chobe Park. Service was minimal compared to what we experienced at every safari lodge.
