Chobe Under Canvas Game Viewing and Wildlife Activities
Chobe National Park consists of 11 700 km2 of pristine wilderness, bordered in the north by the magnificent Chobe River. All sides are protected by wildlife management areas and forest reserves allowing for the free movement of game. Chobe National Park is one of the best wilderness reserves in the world and is home to the largest concentration of elephant. Throughout the year, herds of buffalo and elephant can be seen drinking at the river’s edge with their numbers rising into hundreds and thousands during the dry season. Two species of region-specific antelope occur here, the puku and the Chobe bushbuck, which cannot be seen in other parts of Botswana except on the Chobe riverfront. Due to the variety of the Chobe vegetation and geological features, this magnificent wildlife sanctuary offers extreme contrasts and an incredible variety of wildlife. Birdlife is prolific in Chobe, with many water birds making the Chobe River their home.
