Botswana has been rated by Lonely Planet as top travel destination for 2016 and one of the most visited spots within the country is the Chobe National Park – one of Africa’s greatest safari travel destinations. Established in 1967, the park is home to a rich diversity of wildlife including the highest concentration of elephant in Africa and a variety of unique ecosystems within the park’s 11,700 square kilometer unfenced boundary. The Chobe River forms its northern boundary with four distinct geographical areas in the park: the Chobe Riverfront, the pans, Savute and part of the Linyanti.

With a network of daily flights into Kasane, Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe) and Livingstone (Zambia) together with a well maintained road network for self drivers, Chobe is the ideal Botswana destination to include in your visit to Southern Africa. The region also offers a variety of accommodation options to suit all travelers from budget friendly lodges and remote campsites to luxurious, all inclusive safari lodges, all set within key locations offering you the ideal base from which to experience the very best of Chobe.

Apart from an exceptional safari, the Chobe region offers travelers the rare opportunity to visit local communities in the Chobe Enclave as well as enjoy guided tours through the town of Kasane and Kazangula to experience daily living in Botswana, meet our people and gain insight into our fascinating culture. Having gained independence in 1966 (We celebrate 50 years of Independence on the 30 September 2016) Botswana has one of the most stable economies in Africa and a fascinating story to tell.

Admire the close encounters on a safari... The Savuti pride gave us a warm welcome when entering the park...
