Chobe National Park

Renowned as one of the top wilderness reserves in the world, Chobe National Park is home to the largest concentration of elephant on the African continent. The vast elephant population has had a significant impact on the park, thinning out the dense riverine thickets on the banks of the Chobe River. The huge bulk of these majestic animals requires almost 150 kg of fodder each day, with grass, leaves or even tree branches making up their diet. Elephant herds rely upon their matriarch to lead them to the best feeding and water sites, with individuals seldom straying from each other and ready to come to the aid of a family member who is in trouble.

Chobe also boasts antelopes rarely encountered elsewhere in Botswana - the puku, the Chobe bushbuck, and the Sable antelope. The puku, with their shaggy orange-brown coats and V-shaped horns, can be spotted grazing the floodplains.  In contrast, the Chobe bushbuck is nocturnal and rarely forms groups of more than one pair. 

With an incredible wealth of species, Chobe is a haven for birding enthusiasts. Striking colonies of carmine bee-eaters build their nests in the exposed sandy banks of the river. Water birds, including many species of duck and the rare red-billed pratincole can be spotted in their thousands, and guinea fowl and francolin dart through the grasses on the river’s edge. A quintessential African sound, the haunting call of the fish eagle can often be heard echoing over the Chobe River.  

As well as twice daily game drives, activities include boat cruises along the Chobe River, an excellent way of meeting more crocs, hippos and elephants. 

Whilst Chobe NP can be quite busy along the riverfront on the northern sector of the park (though nothing like the Kruger NP or the Maasai Mara in migration season), there are other much more secluded areas around Linyati, further downstream towards the Okavango Delta, where the wildlife is just as intense, but where the higher prices keep visitor numbers right down. 

The northern sector of Chobe is the best place in Botswana, arguably in all of Africa, for a short budget safari if you are prepared to share some of the sightings. We have two-night, three-day camping trips into Chobe for $403 per person low season, $430 high season. Click here for a full itinerary.
