PANGOLIN VOYAGER HOUSEBOAT
There is simply nothing more relaxing than cruising down one of Africa’s most iconic and game filled rivers
and the Pangolin Voyager is the perfect vessel.
The Chobe river is the natural border between Namibia and Botswana and the Pangolin Voyager is actually
based on the Namibian side of the river with the Chobe national Park as the opposite bank. The Chobe is
unique in that it flows in both directions at different times of the year depending on the flood in the mighty
Zambezi with which is converges a few kilometres further downstream.
The houseboat has five cabins which can be configured as double or twin beds. Each has an ensuite shower
and toilet as well as air conditioning. Please be aware that the aircon is controlled centrally to cool the
cabins throughout the day and night when you are most likely to be in your room but cannot run 24/7 as we
predominantly rely on solar generated battery power.
The middle level is where you will find the living and dining areas where all the meals are served and a wellstocked
bar is located. Large glass sliding doors offer a wonderful view of the river as we cruise between our
three moorings. Most cruising takes place after the morning game activity and during brunch and the midday
sun – which is best enjoyed on the partially shaded upper deck.
Alongside the Pangolin Voyager we have an eight-seater photo boat along with another tender boat for
general game viewing and transfers. Each of the seats on the photo boat have a detachable arm and
camera gimbal and can rotate 360 degrees. In addition to photography and game viewing we also offer the
opportunity to visit a local village where most of the crew come from.
The boats tend to go out at first light and again a few hours before sunset. Teas, coffees and cold drinks are
packed for the morning session and ice cold beverages of your choice for the afternoon.
The captain and his crew are on hand to help make your stay and experience onboard as comfortable and
relaxing as possible.
