Extraordinary Chobe National Park, Botswana

Posted on Thursday, 03rd Jul 2014

Chobe National Park is Botswana’s second largest national park, covering an area of approximately 11 700 square kilometres. It has been said that, it has one of the highest concentration of game found on the African continent. As a result, the Chobe National Park has a truly authentic African feel to it.

The National Park is made up of four different ecosystems: from dry savannas to the vast flood plains along the Chobe River. As the saying goes, “Where there is water there is life”, in this case there is no exception. The Chobe River brings the game reserve to life and serves as the source to the great diversity of wildlife that roams the area.

The Chobe National Park is famous for its massive elephant population, estimated to be around 60 000 elephants. These elephants are migratory and travel in excess of 200 kilometres to the pans in the southeast of the park.

In general, game reserves are popular for their safaris, however the Chobe allows you to step out of the norm and take a river cruise where you can come up and close with hippo, crocodiles and the many species of water birds. Game viewing opportunities in this reserve are extremely high: up to 15 different species of animals are sighted during a single safari outing.

The Chobe National Park is unique in every sense of the word and offers something that is truly African. ATC is a specialist in Southern African travel and would recommend this national park to anyone looking for the ideal authentic African safari experience.For more information and enquiries, contact ATC at sales@atc-sa.co.za
