The Pangolin Voyager sleeps a maximum of 8 guests for the ultimate safari experience along the Chobe River. From US$2500.00 p/n (fully inclusive)

The Pangolin Voyager is more than a houseboat, it is a floating lodge, operating on the Chobe and Upper Zambezi Rivers. It is an exclusive experience affording you privacy and the opportunity to experience the surrounding wildlife-rich floodplains.

What is unique about the Pangolin Voyager is that each cabin is allocated its own tender boat and river guide to explore the endless waterways. You are free to create your own itinerary, from game viewing, birding, photography, cultural visits or walking through one of Africa's prime wildlife environments.

The 5 cabins are located on the bottom deck and are tastefully decorated with soft stone textures and handmade linen. Guest may choose cabins with either double or twin beds – all have private en-suite bathrooms with a shower, basin and toilet.

The middle deck comprises of the lounge, dining area, open air decks, galley (kitchen) and Captains Bridge. This area affords panoramic views of the surroundings and unequalled game viewing opportunities.

The communal dining area on the Pangolin Voyager is where all your sumptuous meals are served, and also a great place to hold meetings should this be required.  The Zambezi Voyager pays special attention to the culinary delights served.  A professional chef has developed the menus and they change as the seasons do. Tea, coffee and refreshments are available from the bar throughout the day on this deck.

The open air deck offers a choice of cooling off in the cold water Jacuzzi or watching the African sunset whilst being serenaded by the night sounds.

Top deck or the viewing deck has a seating area to leisurely sip sundowners or soak up the warm African sun on the sun loungers. In the evenings, this top viewing deck becomes prime position to familiarise oneself with the spectacular African night sky...

Tailor made to suit clients’ needs - there are no set departure dates and passengers can board on any day for any length of time. Passengers are collected by tender boat from Kasane Immigration and taken to join the Pangolin Voyager houseboat wherever it is moored.

The floodplain and wetland areas of the Zambezi and Chobe rivers have a diverse ecological makeup. The opportunity to take guided walks is available over varying distances and within different habitats. The walking is comfortable as the terrain is reasonably flat and is not exclusively for the energetic.

Cultural Village Visit

Pangolin Voyager has formed warm relationships with many of the Namibian villages who are welcoming to all clients. On a typical village visit clients are shown around and introduced to the various village life elements by one of the headmen and are encouraged to ask any questions they may have. After the tour through the village, the locals then put on a small dance and encourage the guests to join them. Small beaded necklaces and other curios are for sale afterwards.


After a day out on the river, clients can either return to toast Africa on the viewing deck, accompanied by some sumptuous snacks prepared by our on-board chefs, or head out onto a private tender boat with their guide and snap up some African sunset shots while drifting leisurely on the water.
