Witness huge herds of Elephants in Chobe
Take to the plains of Chobe National Park in Northern Botswana, the elephant capital of the world, on a game drive to remember.
Leave as dawn breaks or in the dusky late afternoon when herds of strolling elephant make their way to the banks of Chobe River and nearby waterholes to drink, splash and cool off.
Your guide has all the know-how to find elephant on the move and with more than two thirds of Africa’s pachyderm population, you can’t go wrong.
This is especially true in the dry season (June to September). Stop for a late morning cup of coffee or an early evening cocktail as elephants meander past before returning to base.
Enjoy sundowners and wildlife on a boat cruise
Leave your lodge at dusk to sail down the shimmering Chobe River.
Gently pass the wading pods of hippo and the sharp-eyed crocodile as your guide leads you on a scenic boat cruise.
In the golden afternoon light, spy massive herds of elephant and buffalo, and big cats who leave their shady turf for a drink, African painted dog panting after a chase and birdlife galore. This is the perfect time to whip your camera out!
Clink your cocktails as the sun dips below the horizon before returning to the jetty – and spotting all the nocturnal wildlife you can on the way.
Capture your best shots on a photographic cruise
Board the photographic safari boat for a sail down the Chobe River worth more than just a few snaps.
The boat was designed with 360° swivel seats for capturing those spur of the moment shots when a hippo emerges from the depths or an elephant splashes into the shallows.
There is an on-board expert to give you tips of how to frame and capture the perfect picture. Your time of departure depends on the time of year but it always makes good use of the golden hour.
The dry season is a winning time to go when the long grasses have been chomped down and the river is flowing.
When you need a break, enjoy refreshments on the lower deck.
Track Chobe's wildlife on a game drive
Embark on a game drive as dawn appears or dusk approaches, where the wildlife of Chobe is on full display.
Your knowledgeable guide knows every hot spot and secret perch so they’ll steer your experience in the right direction.
This region of Botswana is home to the largest concentrations of elephant in Africa so you’ll be treated to herds marching across the plains and stopping by the river.
Keep your binoculars ready to spot the flick of a leopards tail and ferocious yawn of a lion.
Stop for sustenance beneath a leafy acacia before heading back to your lodge with plenty of stories to tell.
