Stay at a riverside safari lodge, savor a sunset river cruise & enjoy fun, self-guided activities (trip does not include In-destination Support).
About Your Trip
Escape the everyday with a well-deserved DreamBreak and enjoy your DreamTrips™ Membership a different way — on your own, instead of in a group! Your DreamBreak does not include an In-destination Support team member so you can create your own adventures, your way.
Travel to northeastern Botswana to Kasane, a tranquil town on the Chobe River. The Chobe sustains a rich variety of wildlife on land and in the water, both in and out of nearby national parks and reserves. Known for its large elephant population, the area is also home to zebras, buffaloes, giraffes, and a multitude of bird, fish and other animal species — making game viewing a popular activity for visitors.
It’s here that you can relish the African bushveld by water with a sundowner river cruise on the Chobe River. Its calm waters are perfect for a boat ride where you can experience all the river has to offer, from birds flying overhead to animals drinking from the water’s edge. Watch as the sun melts across the horizon — a perfect end to the day!
Back at your riverside lodge, explore your surroundings at your own pace during ample leisure time. You can relax by the pool or at the restaurant. Those looking to explore the area can head to Kasane town, Chobe National Park or nearby Victoria Falls (additional fees may apply).
No matter what activities you choose to do, be sure to fuel up to start your day —buffet breakfasts are included throughout your entire stay!

By booking this DreamTrip I understand that the hotel may request a credit card upon check-in. The hotel may request the credit card in order to: a) place a monetary hold of US$50-200; or b) hold for incidental, security or other charges. By booking, I acknowledge having received notice of this potential charge and accept that Rovia™ recommends a credit card rather than a debit or bank card be used in the event the hotel requests the card. I understand that any such request made by the hotel is outside of the control of Rovia and is strictly a hotel policy. Should I have questions concerning the hotel’s policy, I accept responsibility for contacting the hotel independent of Rovia.

Each individual, including each child, who is coming along with you on your DreamTrip is required to have a booking prior to the commencement of the trip.
