Chobe National Park
Chobe National Park is a true wildlife paradise and one of the best national parks in Southern Africa. Just one peek at the variety of wildlife and lush vegetation and you will be mesmerized forever!
The gateway to Chobe is Kasane, a small town near the borders of Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia. Kasane accommodation offers hotels, tented camps and luxury lodge accommodation.
Guests can transfer from Kasane to their respective accommodation in and around Chobe National Park. Accommodation in the park include wild unfenced camping, eco-lodges, tented camps and luxury lodges.
Chobe National Park is extremely lush because of the many waterways. The Chobe River flows through the park and draws many animals and birds during the dry season.
Boat cruises and game drives along the river are very popular. The natural environment of the park allows for excellent photographic experiences.
Abundant Wildlife & Birdlife
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 Different Perspective
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.
