ELEPHANT LOVER’S PARADISE
Chobe National Park is an elephant-lover’s paradise! Undoubtedly one of Africa’s most beautiful rivers, the Chobe supports a diversity and concentration of wildlife unmatched anywhere else in the country.
During the peak dry season (July to October) the riverfront is famous for its large herds of elephants and Cape buffalo, which during the dry winter months converge on the river to drink, bathe and play! Hundreds of elephants can be seen at a single sighting, and the views are best enjoyed from a boat cruise where you can also get up close and personal to hippos and crocodiles. During the wetter summer months (December to April) smaller herds of elephants are still around, but this is when the area is at its most beautiful, and this is the best time to see the Chobe’s phenomenal birdlife.
The park encompasses a diverse landscape of floodplains, swamps and woodland, and many activities can be enjoyed within the area. Morning and evening boat trips on the Chobe River are a highlight, and avid fishermen can try their luck in key fishing areas outside the National Park. Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls is also a short drive across the border – you can visit the Falls for a day-trip, or go for a few nights to get your fix of adventure.
