Chobe National Park

The place to see elephants

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Botswana holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

Life in Botswana’s first national park is supported by the beautiful Chobe River. With cape buffalo gathering to quench their thirst alongside hippos, crocodiles and water birds, a river cruise is a must. The park is also home to diverse wildlife such as giraffes, impala, warthogs, monkeys, baboons, lions, leopards, hyenas and jackals.

Chobe National Park is Botswana’s most visited park and is also famous for magnificent game drives, where it’s possible to become surrounded by hundreds of elephants crossing your path to drink at nearby watering holes. Take a boat cruise down the Chobe River to get close to the water-dwelling birds and animals, or drive the loop along the river’s edge to see giraffe, kudu, puku, lechwe, lion and leopards. One of the world’s premier birdwatching habitats, with over 460 bird species recorded, Chobe is the ideal spot to discover sacred ibis, Egyptian Geese, spur-winged geese, and the colourful carmine bee-eater.
