chobe game reserve

 

Famed for its massive elephant populations, big herds of buffalo (matched only by some large lion prides) and incredible birdlife, Chobe National park will leave an everlasting memory. Chobe offers amazing riverfront views with bustling wildlife, undisturbed predators, heavenly landscapes and tranquil smaller more intimate lodges. The most accesible area of the park is the Chobe Riverfront, this is also where you will find the most wildlife. For a more predator- rich area, try the Linyanti marshes. Or if you want off the beaten path, explore the more remote Savuti area. Chobe is African wilderness at its best. It is an area that can be enjoyed by everyone: couples, families, and seasoned Africa travelers.

Best Reasons to visit chobe game reseve

The Chobe is one of Africa’s magical rivers, and the best way to explore Chobe Game Reserve is by boat. In the late afternoon, big herds of elephant and buffalo come to drink at the river, and seeing elephants swim is a real treat. There are lots of hippos and crocs in the river, and the birdlife is just amazing. Predator sightings are easier on a game drive. Lion, leopard and wild dog packs are all present in good numbers. Other mammals that are usually spotted on the shore are bushbuck and puku. Lions often lie in ambush near the river waiting for the right opportunity, but spotted hyena, leopard and cheetah are more easily seen inside the park. Rhinos are not in the park. 

Best time to go: August – October – at the riverfront.

  • Excellent wildlife viewing

  • Four of the Big Five present and easily seen – rhino is absent

  • Ideal for birding, especially waterbirds

  • Game drives and boat safaris available, however most accommodations are outside the park.
