Chobe National Park is in the north-east of Botswana, and is best known for its huge herds of elephant and buffalo and the prides of lion that hunt them.

Covering over 11,000km of the northern Kalahari Desert, the park varies from riverine forests, flood plains and marshes to mopane woodlands and rocky outcrops, and boasts the highest concentration of animals in the world. In the green months, the animals migrate to the open grasslands of Savute in search of food, and as the land dries up, between April and November, thousands of elephants come to drink at the Chobe River making for great game viewing. 

Did you know?

  • The best way to see the game here is on a boat safari.
  • Chobe is just a short overland transfer from the Victoria Falls, the perfect add-on to any safari.
  • The Chobe River the only constant source of water in the park other than pumped waterholes making for great game viewing.
  • There is great tiger fishing at the confluence of the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers.
  • Just outside the park is a quadripoint where 4 countries meet: Botswana, Zambia, Namibia and Zimbabwe.
  • The Savute channel flows and dries up seemingly unrelated to rainfall and might be due to movement to underground tectonic plates.
  • There are bushman paintings at Savute.
  • Savute is best during the rainy season where there is a migration of plains games to the channel where they drop their young and the migratory birds arrive.
