It is easily reached by road from the Victoria Falls in Zambia or Zimbabwe, or by flying in from Johannesburg to Kasane Airport, which is close by.
This is one of the oldest safari areas visited by Dr. Livingstone in the 1850′s. A beautiful grassland reserve that has gained international fame for its abundant elephant and buffalo populations that congregate in large herds. With an estimated population of 40,000 to 60,000 elephants, these gentle giants are constant companions and during the dry season they line the banks of the Chobe River offering excellent photographic opportunities. In addition, you are likely to see herds of buffalo and possibly even roan and sable antelope.
In the rainy season (Nov – Apr) the game is much less concentrated at the river as the wildlife spread throughout the greater area of Chobe National Park due to availability of surface water from nearby pans. This assists the vegetation on the river banks in recovering from the massive herds that are attracted to the area in the dry months. The summer rains bring beautiful wild flowers, exquisite scenery, impressive bird life and an abundance of young animals usually born around November/December. The spectacular Chobe sunsets alone are worth a visit to the area.
Safaris are conducted in the reserve by vehicle or by boat, sunset safari cruises along the river are very popular, when large numbers of animals come to drink at the river bank. The national park can be quite busy with a number of different lodges bringing guests in for game drives.
Please note that activities are restricted within the national park in accordance with government rules and regulations: these include no driving off-road, no walking and no driving after dark.
