Chobe

 

Chobe National Park, in northern Botswana, has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa.

The park can be divided up to several areas, each with distinct ecosystems and wildlife:

1. The Chobe, which flows along the Northeast border of the park, is a major watering spot for large breeding herds of elephants, as well as families of giraffe, sable and cape buffalo.. Birding is also excellent.

2. The Savuti Marsh area constitutes the western stretch of the park. At dry seasons, visitors see warthogs, kudus, impalas, zebras, wildebeests and elephants. At rainy season rich birdlife is evident.

3. The Linyanti Marsh, located at the Northwest corner of the park contain two rivers with woodlands and lagoons. Visitors will find large concentrations of lions, leopards, wild dogs, Roan antelopes, Sable antelopes, hippopotamuses and elephants.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.

Wildlife and Plants
The park has one of the largest and best-protected concentrations of game in Africa:

With an estimated 50,000 elephants, it has perhaps the highest elephant concentration of Africa. At dry season, these elephants sojourn in Chobe River and the Linyanti River areas. At rain season, they make a 200-km migration to the southeast stretch of the park.

The region is also covered with extensive savannahs and rolling grasslands, which makes wildlife particularly dynamic in this section of the park. This is the area to see packs of lions and other predator species, as well as zebras and other herbivores.

Birdwathing. When the marshes fill, it is possible to flood spoonbills, ibis, various species of stork, ducks and other waterfowl.
