Home to the largest concentration of elephants in Africa, the Chobe National Park is one of Africa’s leading wildlife destinations. The famous Chobe River, which forms the Park’s northern boundary, provides a permanent source of water for the region’s large animal populations – the focal point for safari enthusiasts from around the world.
The diverse ecosystems in the park play a vital role in hosting a wide variety of animals. Large herds of buffalo and zebra, prides of lion, leopard, giraffe, kudu and the elusive wild dog are just a few of the species that can be seen while on safari in Chobe.
The combination of the ever-present Chobe River and the diverse vegetation make the park home to more than 450 species of birds, making it a must-visit destination for birding enthusiasts.
The ability to enjoy watching these vast numbers of animals from a safari boat is what makes a visit to the Chobe River an exceptional experience. On the river you will have the opportunity of witnessing this remarkable wildlife parade from the small, maneuverable safari boat equipped with deck chairs and sundowner drinks.
A trip to Botswana is not complete without a visit to the Chobe Riverfront. As the only lodge in this region inside the Chobe National Park, Chobe Game Lodge is the ideal base from which to explore the diversity of this world-renowned destination.
