Elephants. If there's one memory that you'll take away from a Chobe safari, it's that of elephants. Some 70 000 of them live in and around the Chobe National Park, and huge numbers of them can be crowding the banks of the Chobe River and Savuti Channel during the long dry season.
And elephants are just the start: if you've ever wanted to see Africa's teeth and claws in action then this is as good a destination as you're likely to get. Chobe is where lions regularly take on herds of buffalo and clash with packs of hyenas; it's the setting for a spectacular summer zebra migration, to see wild dogs hunting and abundant bird life. Put simply, a Chobe safari holiday offers some of the best, most close-up game viewing in Africa.
Go on game drives and river cruises to see big game and big predators interact in a dramatic, unspoiled environment. Wildlife enthusiasts and photographers will relish the density and diversity of Chobe's wildlife while the luxurious and exclusive nature of Chobe safari accommodation means it's an ideal destination for romance - ask us about a Chobe honeymoon and we'll recommend the most idyllic and romantic lodges.
