Chobe National Park

Elephant paradise

Chobe National Park is bordered by the Chobe River in the north and covers more than 10 000 km. It is home to the largest concentration of elephants on the continent. 

The park was created in 1968 and is representative of the diversity in Botswana. The banks of different rivers attract large groups of animals and flocks of birds in places like the Savuti Marshes and the Mababe Depression. The landscapes range from arid plains to swamps and from areas of acacia bushes to mopane trees. You will see crocodiles, many elephants, waterbuck, impalas, hippos and many other animals. The park is accessible to all types of vehicles, but you can travel around more freely and easily in a 4x4. 

The park has 3 zones. Linyanti is a swamp area that attracts about 450 bird species and boat or canoe excursions can be organized to make the most of this area. Northern Chobe is the busiest region and is an amazingly green eden with the highest concentration of African elephants. Savuti is the least frequented part of the park, but it is equally beautiful and unique. You must use a 4x4 vehicle for this area.
