Chobe River Front

The Chobe River supports the largest concentration of elephant found anywhere in Africa and it is not uncommon to encounter herds in excess of a hundred animals. Forming the northern border of the park, Chobe River is lined with lush plains and dense forests where you’ll also find plenty of other animals including large herds of buffalo, and the lions that prey on them.

This is the busiest region of Chobe National Park, and for good reason. Look forward to excellent game viewing and some of the best safari boat cruises in the world!
