The Chobe National Park covers a large area of the northern Kalahari...
... and is dominated by the Chobe River, which is popular with herds of animals, and people.
Half- and full-day drives in open-topped 4WD vehicles ...
... can get you close to the riverfront's large herds of zebra, buffalo, sable...
... some of Africa's largest congregations of elephants ...
... and some of large prides of lion which are common here.
Chobe's birdlife is excellent, with many species from the entertaining pied kingfisher ...
... to the large African fish eagles, which are very common along the river.
We think that the best way to observe the Chobe's wildlife is often from a boat ...
... from where you can also enjoy the most spectacular sunsets.
Far south of the Chobe River, in the dry heart of the national park, lies the Savuti area ...
... famed for the huge open grassland that was once the Savuti Marsh.
It's big game country: herds pass through Savuti for nutricious grasses and permanent water.
Lots of the game at Savuti is transient, but large prides of lion are permanent residents here ...
... as are some exceedingly large packs of spotted hyena.
Whilst on the open grasslands of the dry Savuti Marsh, cheetah are occasionally seen.
