Floating down the river in one of these houseboats, which vaguely resemble Mississippi steamboats that got lost somewhere in Angola, gives a new, aquatic twist to the ‘mobile safari’ experience. The craft depart from Seronga, and should be booked well in advance. Expect some amazing birding and riverside wildlife viewing. The boats accommodate six to 20 people.
Petrol and food costs extra but a crew is included; check the website.
