The Chobe National Park established in 1968 covers 11700 square kilometres and is situated in the northern most part of Botswana. Encompassing swamps, floodplains and woodlands it is the third largest Park or Reserve in the country after Kgalagadi Transfontier Park and the largest of them all the Central Kalahari Game reserve.
The Chobe River, which is without doubt one of Africa’s most beautiful rivers, forms its northern boundary and in the extreme south-west it borders the Moremi Game Reserve.
The ancient desert, the wildlife of Damaraland and Etosha, the bounteous wetlands of the Caprivi, Chobe and the Okavango Delta and of course the wonder of Victoria Falls, it will be hard to pick a favourite.
The Okavango Delta is an impenetrable network of waterways and flood plains in Botswana covering an area the size of small country.
The Chobe Riverfront: is the most accessible being situated close to the town of Kasane which has an international airport. Good tar roads link to Francistown, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, Livingstone in Zambia and Namibia.
Savute: lies within the interior of the Chobe National Park and offers a complete contrast to the water rich Chobe Riverfront and Linyanti areas with an almost desert-like appearance.
Okavango Delta, crammed with every conceivable species of bird and beast, the delta is an Eden of excess offering amazing game viewing and birding in a scenic and tranquil African wilderness. The quintessential delta experience: gliding in silence through the waterways on an African-style gondola carved from a single tree.
Nogatsaa is the least utilised area of the Chobe National Park with currently no accommodation or camping options available. Mobile safaris can be tailor-made by certain companies who do have access to some sites. Unlike the sandy soils of Savute, the soils of Nogatsaa are mostly clayey giving rise to several natural pans, these mostly dry up during the dry season apart from a few which are artificially topped up by boreholes. This source of water attracts hundreds of elephant and other game species.
