In celebration of last month’s Women’s Month (August), we are extremely proud and excited to announce that the Chobe Game Lodge all-female guiding team were featured in a Sunday edition of the New York Times in a wonderful travel piece titled – Yes, It’s Her Safari written by Hillary Richard. The article was printed in the 27 August edition of the New York Times on the front page of the travel section. For those who missed it, there is an online version of the article available on their website. The online article is titled The Wonder Women of Botswana Safari.
Hillary visited Chobe Game Lodge to experience first-hand what it’s like to be guided by our team of female guides who have made their mark in the industry and call the Chobe National Park their home.
Chobe Game Lodge began its female guide recruitment policy back in 2005 when it employed it’s first two female guides. Today, the entire guiding team consists of women – all professionally trained, passionate and ready to show you the wonders of the Chobe National Park.
While on safari with us, Hillary immersed herself in her safari discovering exactly what it is about the Chobe National Park that makes it one of Africa’s most iconic safari destinations. From early morning game drives to late afternoon river safaris on the Chobe River, she did it all, enjoying some exceptional sightings along the way.
But it wasn’t only about the guides and wildlife encounters that caught Hillary’s attention, she also took the time to learn more about Chobe Game Lodge, the lodges unique history and its strong focus on responsible tourism.
