The Chobe National Park is located in the North-Eastern corner of Botswana, bordering Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia. The border town of Kasane is the main entry point, with light aircraft flights and road transfers taking visitors into Chobe as well as the other game reserves around the country. The Eastern part of the park tends to be busier with more lodges, which become more remote as you move further West.
The Northern boundary of the park is marked by the Chobe River, where visitors can enjoy sunset river cruises and even some stay aboard boat safaris that make their way up and down the river. The river flows all year, meaning that in the drier months, in particular, the game viewing along the river frontage is superb.
Chobe is renowned for its large herds of elephant (there are around 100,000 in the park in all), as well as having large herds of antelope and zebra and offers the chance for excellent sightings of lion and leopard. Being a National Park, guests game viewing activities are all conducted in game viewing vehicles, with extra excursions such as tiger fishing available in season. It is also an ideal base for visiting Victoria Falls (either the Zambian or Zimbabwean side) for a day trip if you do not have the time to stay there. This will allow you to enjoy a huge range of activities and see The Falls.
Chobe offers a fantastic variety of accommodation, from wonderfully luxurious lodges such as Sanctuary's Chobe Chilwero to more modest options such as Chobe Elephant Camp or Muchenje. You can also stay in Kasane Town itself, where lodges such as Chobe Bush Lodge are great options. For visitors looking for something a little different, The Zambezi Queen and Pride of The Zambezi offer the chance to spend a few nights aboard a specially designed houseboat as it cruises the Chobe River.
