The Chobe and Linyanti areas offer a different perspective of Botswana’s varied territories whilst still providing a comparable experience to that of the Okavango Delta.
The Chobe National Park has one of the highest concentrations of game found on the African continent and the furthest Northern corner of Chobe National Park lies the Linyanti Marsh, a private reserve considered a hidden paradise for safari enthusiasts seeking exclusive safari experiences.
The park is divided into four distinctly different eco systems: Serondela with its lush plains and dense forests in the Chobe River area in the extreme north-east; the Savuti Marsh in the west about fifty kilometres north of Mababe gate; the Linyanti Swamps in the north-west and the hot dry arid area in between. It is home to huge migrating herds of Elephants (estimated 120 000), Buffalo, Zebras and has a high density of predators including Lion, Leopard, Spotted Hyena and Cheetah.
Lying in the North of the country with the Chobe river bordering Namibia, Chobe National Park is the second largest park in Botswana (10,698 km2) after the Central Kalahari, and one of the world’s last remaining true wilderness area, with a spectacular diversity of flora and fauna.
Bird watching and game viewing can be considered all year around, with January and February making the peak of the rainy season and October the hottest month.
