The Chobe National Park is one of the most visited African safari Parks. The Chobe Riverfront is famous for its huge concentrations of African Elephant and Cape Buffalo. During the dry winter months vast herds descend to the River banks to drink. It is one of those unique destinations where the diversity of water and land creates two very different game viewing experiences. The Chobe National Park covers floodplains, swamps and woodland. Your lodge usually gives you the option of river cruises or game drives within the National Park. So you have ample opportunity for some spectacular game viewing, bird watching and African sunsets. The Chobe National Park consists of four distinct geographical areas: the Chobe Riverfront, Ngwezumba Pans, Savute and Linyanti. Accommodation options are generally along the riverfront, in Savute and Linyanti. 

The Chobe is a hive of activity. With plenty of tours and activities available, some people even visiting on a day tour only. Despite the activity, one still feels the remoteness of Africa. Floating down the Chobe River, with herds of animals active along the riverfront, reptile activity in the waters or lazing on the shore and the red African sun setting on the horizon.

Chobe National Park is a super combination with itineraries to Victoria Falls. It also works as a great circuit within Botswana including the Okavango Delta and then one of the desert areas like the Kalahari or Makgadikgadi Pans if you have the time. We have put together some super Botswana safari suggested itineraries including this wildlife highlight. The dry months are a good time to visit as the wildlife congregates along the river for the scarce water.
