Chobe National Park - Botswana

Chobe is famous for its countless herds of elephant and buffalo. In the woodlands, visitors can see kudu, Chobe bush-buck, sable antelope and zebra.  Giraffe browse the crown of acacia trees, while cheetah, leopard and lion are often seen.  More than 250 bird species inhabits the park.
Fishing conditions for barbell, bream and tiger fish are superb.
Most of the roads in the Chobe Riverfront area are in very good condition and can be negotiated with an ordinary sedan.

It is possible to observe game from your campsite as they move daily from the forest to the riverbed to quench their thirst.
Large numbers of breeding elephant herds make a spectacular view.
Warthog has made the campsite its home. Uninterested in human presence, they will carry on with their daily activities - gathering food, nursing their young, and playing around.  Never approach them.  They still remain wild and could be very dangerous.
Lion frequently visit the campsite.  They won't harm you if you stay at your campsite and not wander around after dark.  Always keep your tent zipped up and never sleep outside.
Due to the large concentration of game, the Chobe River Area is a paradise for predators.
The Chobe lion is a good example thereof.

Most of the lodges in and around Kasane offers game viewing excursions on power boats and barges on the Chobe river, allowing you to come close to the animals.
This could be very exciting and most rewarding for the keen photographer.
Late afternoon cruises are available to allow you to savor the sunset with an ice cold sun-downer among hippo and elephant.
