The Chobe National Park is named after the spectacular Chobe River on the northern border of Botswana. The area has a dense and diverse concentration of wildlife, with vast herds of elephant and buffalo and their accompanying predators constantly roaming the area.
Chobe is one of the oldest safari destinations in Africa and David Livingstone first visited the area in 1850. It is made up of four main sectors: the central pans, the Linyanti marshes, the Chobe River and the Mababe Depression. The wet and the dry season are vastly different and from April to November, during the dry season the game migrates to the north and western areas of the park. During the rainy season from December to March, the plains are covered with lush grasses and the area is teeming with wildlife.
