Chobe National Park is in northern Botswana near the vast, inland Okavango Delta. It's known for its large herds of elephants and Cape buffalo, which converge along the Chobe Riverfront in the dry months. Lions, antelopes and hippos inhabit the woods and lagoons around Linyanti Marsh. The floodable grasslands of the Savuti Marsh attract numerous bird species, plus migrating zebras.Chobe is surely the best place in Africa to see elephants, particularly in the water. Individual herds sometimes number in the hundreds and there are an estimated 120,000 elephants in total in the park. There are equally large herds of buffalo to be found. In fact, both can often be seen outside the park boundaries wandering around the outskirts of Kasane itself, unperturbed by traffic or people.The park also offers great lion and leopard sightings, while the river has an unbelievable abundance of hippos and crocodiles and an almost inconceivable wealth of birdlife, including a number of particularly rare species that are highly sought after by top wildlife photographers. This is just a small glimpse of what Chobe has to offer.A trip to Chobe is not complete without a boat trip on the beautiful river itself. This allows you to see most of the park’s interesting wildlife and birdlife from a different perspective. Aside from the allure for birders, being on the river is the best place for budding photographers to take spectacular images of the vast herds of elephants on the river’s lush green banks and islands or even crossing the river.Chobe and the other highlights of the region can also be enjoyed through exclusive fly-in safaris, while other safari offerings also incorporate scenic flights as well as mokoro canoe excursions on the Delta, and even white water rafting trips on the mighty Zambezi..
