Elephants of Chobe, Chobe, Botswana

Chobe National Park


  • One of the largest concentrations of game in the African continent, particularly elephant
  • Safari by boat as well as by vehicle with open floodplains around the river
  • A great destination to connect with Victoria Falls and Livingstone


Although one of Botswana’s busiest parks, Chobe is definitely worth a visit for its sheer number of different habitats and immense big game population. The park stretches from the northern tip of Botswana to the outskirts of the Okavango Delta with the Chobe River running along the border to the north, separating it from Namibia. From the floodplains that surround the river, to the grasslands of the Savuti March, a unique abundance of wildlife and birdlife can be seen here. Vast herds of elephant, sometimes five hundred or so strong, frequent the water’s edge making game viewing by boat spectacular. 

Most accommodation in the area is on the riverfront itself, as well as in the Savuti area to the west with its rich marshlands. Access to the area is easy, with direct flights into Kasane from Johannesburg a four times a week. Road transfers are possible from neighbouring Victoria Falls and Livingstone making it ideal for those limited on time wanting a short safari, or for a stopover on route to the Okavango Delta.
