Chobe National Park
Chobe National Park, the second largest park in Botswana is known for its predator population and magnificent game viewing. Located along the Chobe River, it is home to the largest concentration of Elephant in the world. The park covers an area of 11566 square kilometres. There is an estimated 60,000 elephants living in the park, it is divided into three distinctive eco-systems, Serondela, Savute and Linyanti.
A lot of animals like lions, herds of buffalos, families of elephants, Impala and Puku (an antelope unique to this area), are possible sightings. Also take a river cruise and you’ll experience the park, and the animals, from another vantage point. Here you’ll get up close and personal with hippos, crocodiles and a mind-boggling array of water birds. The Serondela area (or Chobe riverfront), situated in the extreme north-eastern section of the park, has as main geographical features lush plains and dense teak forests. The Chobe River, which flows along the north-eastern border of the park, is a drinking spot for elephants and buffalos at dry season. The famous bee-eater is also spotted here, along the river. This is probably the most visited park section, partly because of its proximity to the Victoria Falls. The town of Kasane, situated at the river, is the most important town of the region and serves as northern entrance to the park
