Chobe National Park 
For a varied game experience consider visiting the Chobe National Park in Botswana.
Chobe National Park is a short drive from Victoria Falls  and is the most accessible and frequently visited of Botswana’s wildlife reserves. The Chobe River is most famous for its large herds of elephants which during the dry winter months converge upon the river to drink. On a Chobe River boat cruise wildlife from a different perspective, where herds of animals converge on – or even in - the water to drink; hippos and crocodiles are right there below you or on the banks and the birdlife is sensational. Open-sided boats provide superb photographic opportunities. 
Within the park itself wildlife abounds. Aside from the finest opportunity ever to witness the greatest elephant population density in Africa, expect to see antelope species, kudu, roan, sable and impala plus warthog giraffe, monkeys and baboons along with the accompanying predators -  lion, leopard, hyena and jackal.

Speak to an Expert


The Victoria Falls River Lodge was beyond our expectations.  The cabin was large and luxurious with a huge bed and room big enough for almost all the grandchildren (if they had come).  We had great food and service, and a spectacular river cruise.  The game drive guide was very good and knowledgeable about the birds.  This was a thing with me, so I did not mind not seeing as many elephants, lions, etc.

Thank you very much,

Aryeh and Sheila
