Chobe also boasts two antelopes rarely encountered elsewhere in Botswana - the puku and the Chobe bushbuck. The puku, with their shaggy orange-brown coats and V-shaped horns, can be spotted grazing the floodplains. Always be on the lookout for predators, a repetitive whistle is used to warn fellow herd members. In contrast, the Chobe bushbuck is nocturnal and rarely forms groups of more than one pair. Rarely seen, this shy antelope, with its short, spiral horns relies on a sharp bark as an alarm call when threatened. Both the puku and the bushbuck have a number of predators to contend with; from lion, hyena and leopard, to African wild dog. Go back to the camping site after a beautiful drive, have lunch and then go for a siesta. At 3:00pm you depart for a beautiful sunset boat cruise along the Chobe River at your own expense. You will come very close to crocodiles and pods of hippos from the boat. We may see lions from the boat, and big herds of buffalos and elephants. We get back to the camping area after sunset and dinner will be served at 8:00pm. Time for bed will be determined by the last guest.
