Chobe National Park

Sit back, relax, and keep those binoculars handy as you sail the mighty Chobe River, game viewing from the relaxing vantage point of your boat. Chobe National Park is a haven for herds of grazing animals and bird life. Prepare for majestic elephants, frighteningly large crocodiles and glorious birdlife. 

 

Can life get any better? Apparently. Next, we'll hop in an open safari vehicle for a drive through the Chobe Game Reserve with the chance of seeing more wildlife and birdlife, and a gorgeous lunch at a lodge awaits us.... overlooking the Chobe River. Let’s call it the ultimate.
