The park is the second largest in Botswana (11,700 sq km) and named after the river Chobe that forms the northern boundary of the park. The Chobe River support one of the largest concentrations of elephant found anywhere in Africa and it is not uncommon to encounter herds in excess of a hundred. The elephants leave the river for the southern region of the park during the rainy season (December to March) at the time when food and water is freely available inland. Chobe is also famous for its huge herds of buffalo, the Chobe bushbuck, and for being the southern-most point where puku can be seen. The river serves as the main water source for the wildlife and bird life in the area.
Accommodations are in walk-in tents equipped with stretcher beds and all bedding. There is 1 shower and toilet for every 4 guests. The vehicles are custom fitted 4 x 4 vehicles.
The next 2 days will be spent game driving along the incredible Chobe River flood plain to experience an abundance of wildlife. You will also experience the wildlife and birds from the water. This is normally done at lunchtime and a picnic lunch is served just before jumping on the boat.
