In 2008 (three years before Pangolin started) Toby first visited The Chobe with his mother and spent three glorious days onboard what was then called The Nguni Voyager Houseboat. This was a very special holiday for Toby and his mum and was the principal reason he fell in love with the river.
Roll forward to 2015 and the opportunity to buy the Nguni presented itself and he and Guts saw this as the perfect way to be able to offer accommodation along with our signature photographic boats and it was too good to pass up. So they took the plunge and have never looked back. You can also imagine how excited Toby’s mother was when he told her and she was literally the first one to book!
Renamed as The Pangolin Voyager to bring it inline with the brand we have spent a small fortune renovating and improving it from top to bottom to the magnificent “floating lodge” that it is today.
For groups of friends, families or perhaps a photo club on tour this vessel is perfectly suited to the needs of photographers and non-photographers alike who want to have an exclusive experience in one of Africa’s most productive wildlife photography regions.
