The land of the giants Chobe National Park

Covering nearly 7,000 square miles, the Chobe National Park holds the title of Botswana’s first – and probably most famous – national park. Drawn to the Chobe River, swathes of migrating elephant herds congregate along its banks from as far afield as Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. On a safari tour of Chobe, game drives, river cruises and luxury living are the order of the day.


Along the western fringes of the Chobe National Park, you’ll find one of Africa’s best-known big game areas, Savuti. Its seasonal marshes, fed by the wiggles of the Savuti Channel, attract dazzles of zebra, trailed by stealthy lion prides, cheetah pairs, ambitious leopards, and breeding herds of elephants that stream in during the rainy summer months.


The Kwando river flows southwards from Angola into the Linyanti swamp. Below the swamp it is known as the Linyanti river, and further east it becomes the Chobe river. This river (with three names) is the northern most border of Chobe National Park and home to clouds of migrating carmine bee-eaters. Famed for its thriving wild dog population and leopard sightings, the Linyanti’s grasslands, cathedral-like mopane woodlands and riverine forests attract an impressive range of rarities from sable and roan antelope to all the big cats, so that every game drive is a treat.
