Botswana Chobe Safari: Africa’s Elephant Paradise
If there’s one memory that you’ll take away from a Chobe safari, it’s that of elephants. About 120 000 live in and around Chobe National Park, and inconceivable numbers of these gentle giants can be seen crowding the banks of the Chobe River during Botswana’s dry season.Chobe is also one of the best places in Africa to witness the most dramatic predator action – its Savuti region is where lions regularly clash with hyenas and powerful prides famously take down Africa’s biggest game like buffalo, giraffe and even elephants.
Chobe National Park is about the size of Northern Ireland and a haven for the biggest elephant populations on the planet. Chobe offers game drives and river cruises in an unspoilt environment that supports massive herds of not only elephant but also a multitude of buffalo that is unrivalled elsewhere in Africa.
- The Chobe National Park is Botswana’s most biologically diverse park.
- Close-up encounters with huge herds of elephant and buffalo.
- See predators like lion, wild dog, jackal, hyena and leopard.
- Go on a river safari on the Chobe River and experience the famous Chobe River sunset
When to Go?
Most visitors go to Chobe National Park for its famous dry-season game viewing. From May to the end of October/early November, ever-increasing numbers of water-dependent animals (especially elephants and buffalo) are concentrated along the Chobe River as well as in the park’s central Savuti region.
May, June and July are bone-dry with cold nights but temperatures rise rapidly as the rainy season approaches. August, September and October offer sensational game viewing but under very hot conditions.
If you can handle the heat, this is the best game-viewing time for a Chobe safari. The arrival of the rains trigger a dispersal of game from the Chobe River area but the warm, rainy December to March summer months are the best time to visit Chobe for bird watching, the impala birthing season (great for predators!) and to see the Savute zebra migration. Indeed, many safari experts rate early summer as the best time to go to Savute.
