Chobe National Park

Chobe National Park, in northwest Botswana, has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. By size, it is the third largest park in the country, and is the most diverse. It is the country’s first national park.


This area, the Serondela, situated in the extreme Northeast of the park, has as its main feature a lush floodplain and a dense woodland of mahogany and other hardwoods.

The Chobe river, along the Northeast border of the park, is a major watering spot for large breeding herds of elephants, families of giraffe, sable antelope and cape buffalo.

Birding is also excellent here. Large numbers of carmine bee eaters are spotted in season.

When the river is in flood, spoonbills, ibis, and various species of stork, duck and other waterfowl flock to the area.

This is probably the most visited park section, partly because of its proximity to the Victoria Falls.


The Savuti Marsh area, 10,878 km² large, constitutes the western stretch of the park (enter via Mababe Gate — see my Machaba web page).


The Linyanti Marsh area, located at the Northwest corner of the park and to the North of Savuti, is adjacent to Linyanti River. See my Selinda web page).
