Chobe National Park
WHY TRAVEL HERE?
  • Chobe National Park is a great, untamed wilderness, with four distinct eco-systems.

  • Situated in the north-east of Botswana, it takes its name from the Chobe River on the northern boundary.

  • Frederick Courtney Selous wrote after his visit to Chobe, “I never enjoyed any part of my wanderings (in Africa) so much”. 

  • Along the river are magnificent Natal and Pod mahogany trees, African star-chestnut, baobabs and black monkey orange, the fruit of which is highly sought after by baboon and kudu. 

  • Renowned for its large populations of elephant and buffalo, with breeding herds of up to 300 strong.

  • Lion and other predators are attracted by the availability of prey. 

  • The shy Chobe bushbuck, lechwe, puku, oribi and Sharpe's grysbok are some of the more unusual animals that can be sighted amongst those which are more common. 

  • Serondela Reserve is a birders’ paradise with an amazing diversity of over 440 species, including the rare long-toed and white crowned plover, African finfoot, rock pratincole and half-collared kingfisher.

  • Chobe River is a prime spot for fishing, particularly for tiger fish.

  • Chobe’s close proximity to Zimbabwe means it is an ideal base from which to visit the magnificent Victoria Falls.

  • Best time to go is usually the dry, cooler months of May to September. The heaviest rainfall months are from December to February.

  • Preventative and prophylactic measures should be taken for malaria.
