Chobe

An Elephant Haven Worth Returning To

Chobe National Park is one of those places which having visited once you’ll be desperate to return to time and time again. In fact, we have a number of guests who do just that, returning year after year.

Chobe definitely warrants visiting over and over, as it’s not only rich in wildlife, but also its diversity. The park’s four distinct ecosystems - the floodplains and forests of Serondela, the Savuti Marsh, the Linyanti Marsh, and the hot, dry hinterland of Nogatsaa - are each destinations in their own right, with very different landscapes and wildlife.

The elephant population is a sight to behold. Kalahari elephant are the largest of all elephant, with short, brittle tusks. Numbers have boomed since the early 1990s, thanks to the combination of improved anti-poaching initiatives and the availability of food. In the dry season the best place to spot them is around the Chobe River; in the rainy season they migrate some 200 km to the southeastern part of the park.
 
Chobe’s birding is best in Serondela (which is within easy reach of Victoria Falls). Look out for spoonbill, ibis, stork, and duck in the flooded marsh areas, and for the vibrant southern carmine bee-eater which migrate here to breed.

Accommodation:
Chobe Under Canvas

To experience the true spirit of an African safari, we might suggest a stay at Chobe Under Canvas. The luxurious tented suites are mobile, repositioned throughout the year to be as close as possible to the rich wildlife of Chobe National Park.

Accommodation:
Chobe Princess

With only a select few guests onboard, the Chobe Princess feels as if it’s your very own houseboat. In fact, you can book the entire boat for exclusive use: it is a great way to relax and enjoy this intimate river safari experience.
