The Pangolin Voyager is a luxuriously appointed river houseboat comprising of 5 spacious en-suite cabins with double or twin bed arrangements. The private bathroom comprises of a shower, basin and toilet. Alongside the Pangolin Voyager are several purpose built tender boats meaning that guests have plenty of activity options throughout the day. Two of the tender boats are custom built photo boats with camera mountings on chairs that rotate 360 degrees. The middle deck consists of 2 private lounges with a small reference library, communal dining area, galley (kitchen), Captains Bridge, viewing deck and and a barbeque with seating area alongside. The Pangolin Voyager's area of operation is home to over 500 species of birds. the Voyager operates on the Chobe & the Upper Zambezi rivers which are not only well known for their prolific game and birding experience, but also house a couple of surprises beneath the water's surface in the form of Tiger fish, Bream & Barbel. Our guides are local experts on how to land the big one. All meals and drinks are included onboard as well as all the activities including general game viewing, fishing, photography and local cultural experiences.
