About the Chobe River and National Park
The Chobe River forms the northern boundary of the Chobe National Park, renowned for its reliable and diverse game viewing. Chobe National Park is in northern Botswana near the vast inland Okavango Delta. The park is known for its large herds of elephant, Cape buffalo, and birdlife which converge along the riverfront.
Safaris are conducted both by boat and on land. This section of the park is best known for its elephant and hippo populations, but the waters attract all manner of game including large herds of buffalo and the lions that prey on them.
Undoubtedly one of Africa’s most beautiful rivers, the Chobe supports a diversity and concentration of wildlife unparalleled anywhere else in the country. And is most famous for its large herds of elephants and cape Buffalo, which during the dry winter months converge upon the river to drink.
Driving the loops that hug the river’s edge, you may see up to 15 different species of animals on any one game drive, including waterbuck, lechwe, puku (this is the only part of Botswana where they can be seen), giraffe, kudu, roan and sable, impala, warthog, bushbuck, monkeys and baboons, along with the accompanying predators lion, leopard, hyena and jackal.
Take a river cruise – and you’ll experience the park, and the animals, from another vantage point. Here you’ll get up close and personal with hippo, crocodile and a mind-boggling array of water birds.
Over 460 bird species have been recorded in the park, making it one of Africa’s premier venues for bird Safaris. Common species to be seen include the Sacred ibis, Egyptian Geese, the ubiquitous cormorants and darters, Spur-winged Geese, pel’s Fishing Owl, carmine Bee-eaters, most members of the kingfisher family, all the rollers, the unmistakable Fish Eagle, the Martial Eagle, and many members of the stork family.
