The safari was incredible!
ADVENTUROUS SAFARIS IN THE CHOBE
The Chobe River runs along the northern border of Botswana, creating a beautifully serene area and an inviting habitat to wildlife.
To the South of this, Chobe National Park covers an extensive part of northwestern Botswana, situated around the area of Kasane and the banks of the Chobe River and incorporating the Savute marshland to the northwest of the famed Okavango Delta.
Chobe National Park is well known for the migration of animals across its extent, as wild game moves freely over a large area to follow the rainfalls and areas of abundant food that they bring.
While the Chobe River itself is not as good a destination for seeing the big cat predators as some other areas of Botswana, it is legendary for its strong concentration of large herds of elephant, amongst a variety of other notable African plains game.
There are also game cruises available on the river itself, where one can peacefully float along the river observing many types of wildlife as they approach the riverbanks looking for water and respite from the afternoon heat.
Some very pleasant lodges exist around this area with great views of the river, but for the overall experience of a remote and wild Africa, and from our experience in this area: it is great as a combination with other areas, but if your'e limited for time we definitely prefer the Okavango Delta and Selinda areas, lying only slightly to the south.
