Chobe in Botswana has one of the largest concentrations of game in the whole of the African continent. It is also one the world's largest remaining wilderness areas and offers the most diverse array of wildlife out of all of Botswana's national parks.
Chobe is located in the very northeast corner of Botswana and only a short 90 minute drive from Victoria Falls. Chobe is probably best known for its large herds of African Elephants, but this is just the tip of the iceberg - witness the great Zebra migration, marvel at the myriad of predators roaming the open plains, birdwatch for hours on end and go on escorted game walks with knowledgeable guides.
The Chobe Region around Kasane is where some of Botswana’s most well known safari lodges such as Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero and Chobe Game Lodge can be found. Here the river is at its widest and most tranquil and surrounded by floodplains, sandridges and forest. This area is easily accessible from Victoria Falls. Upstream and west of Kasane is the Linyanti Region and Savuti Region. Remote and usually only accessible by light aircraft, this area is much quieter and more secluded and is well known for its plentiful and abundant numbers of predators and general wildlife.
