Botswana’s first National Park Chobe, is the third largest park in the country. Home to four of the ‘Big Five’, the Chobe River attracts one of the biggest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. Particularly well known for its spectacular elephant population, the park is home to an estimated 50,000 of these wonderful animals. With several distinct ecosystems the habitat ranges from lush floodplains to dense woodlands and rich grasslands. With the river the focus of this area, Chobe is easily accessible and combinable with other destinations like Victoria Falls, a comfortable 90-minute drive away, or into the Okavango Delta on a scenic 90-minute light aircraft flight. Experience both game drives and river cruises in one place. Alternatively really immerse yourself in the tranquility and stay for a night or two on the water in a unique and delightful houseboat.
