Chobe National Park river safari

In this African national park, located in northwest Botswana on the border with Namibia, elephants roam free. And they aren't the only ones: here you'll find zebra, buffalo, wildebeest, giraffe... Check out our photo gallery for a glimpse of this natural paradise, home to one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa.

Here, in the Chobe National Park, the heartbeat of Africa is strong. What could be more memorable than sailing the calm waters of the Chobe River, along the border between Botswana and Namibia, at dusk when flocks of colourful birds fly overhead and herds of elephant roam ponderously along the river bank? The great pachyderms may be the most impressive of the local wildlife, but they are certainly not the only ones. The seasonal migration of zebra is a spectacular sight, and there are cape buffalo, giraffe, warthogs, wildebeest and all kinds of antelope, as well as the major predators and a myriad tropical birds, with many migrants visiting from November to March. Join us on a river safari, where the shooting is with a camera, and feel the thrill of discovering Africa with your own eyes.
