Covering about 11 700km squared of the northern Kalahari, it is characteristically known for its thorn bush and the large concentrations of game. The park is divided into four ecosystems, namely Serondela, Savuti and Linyanti with the hot and dry hinterland in between.
Famous for huge herds of wildlife, specifically of the elephant, buffalo and large prides of lions, this area used to be a prime spot for hunting. Now with conservation efforts overshadowing the sport, Chobe National Park is a place to view wildlife and connect with nature. The Chobe River runs through the park for about 60km, providing excellent game viewing opportunities. The animals here migrate in complex and ancient patterns according to rainfall and the availability of food. The Savuti Channel is an open and nutritious grassland where many animals pass while migrating annually. In addition to migrating wildlife, some of the game here have set territories and can thus predictably spotted with some patience.
You can expect to find almost all of Africa’s indigenous wildlife – if you’re lucky. Safari is advised for game viewing, however, some of the lodges are located in prime positions where wildlife can be conveniently viewed from the porch while sipping on morning coffee or nightcaps. Zebras are usually spotted in large herds, accompanied by bucks of all sorts, giraffe, tsessebe, warthogs buffalo and elephant. In addition hyena, wild cats and meerkat, leopard and many birds to name but a few of the animals that roam throughout this land.

Choose from a variety of types of accommodation ranging from luxurious guest lodges, safari camps, tented camps and self-catering chalets, to budget friendly guest lodges and tented camps.
