Botswana - Chobe National Park

Botswana’s Chobe National Park is an expansive, varied and unmissable treasure.

Best known for its enormous elephants, which roam the grasslands in herds of hundreds, the park is also one of Africa’s greatest destinations for wildlife watching.

Drawn to the area by the wetlands of the Chobe River, the concentration of game is one of the densest on the continent and is especially vibrant during the dry season from April through October.

The sheer diversity of mammals that congregate around the river will impress those who approach by four wheels, but travellers keen on getting even closer to the wildlife should take a boat up the river. Adventurers looking for a more authentic experience will be keen to take to the water in a mokoro, Botswana’s traditional canoe, so they can glide past the buffalos, hippos and giraffes refreshing on the banks.

The scale of the Chobe National Park means it’s an expanse of contrasts. Travellers that head south to Savuti will feel like they’re on the most African of sarafis with the landscape recast as dusty terrain, torched grass and terrific orange sunsets.

Here, the plains become the prowling grounds of the big cats with lions, cheetahs and leopards all on the hunt for migrating zebras, wildebeest and impala. Botswana has riches for all.
