Chobe National Park
With its unmatched diversity and concentration of game, Chobe National Park is the flagship national park of Botswana. Located in the country’s north east, the park encompasses 11,700 square km of floodplains, swamps and woodlands.
Its northern boundary is the Chobe River, which gives rise to an abundance of wildlife and is famous for attracting large herds of elephant and Cape buffalo, especially during the dry winter season from June – August. During this season, it is possible to see hundreds of elephants in the space of one game drive.
Other common sightings include giraffe, waterbuck, lechwe, the more unusual antelope puku, along with a host of additional grazing species, primates, and predators including leopard, lion, hyena and jackal. Hippo and crocodile can be seen from the comfort of a Chobe River game cruise, which also offers a games’ eye view vantage point.
