Did you know?

Chobe National Park is on a wide-ranging seasonal water system that starts up north on the borders of Zimbabwe, Caprivi and Zambia at the Savute-Linyanti floodplains, and continues down to the Okavango Swamps where it pans out into the famous Delta.


  • Elephants swim across the Chobe River using their trunks as snorkels when the river is flooding in summer
  • Chobe is one of the 4 top national parks in Botswana which has dedicated nearly 50% of its space to conservation of wildlife and landscapes
  • The Chobe riverfront is at its busiest just before the rains come in October/November because the animas are thirsty and skittish, and lean predators are vying for a bite
  • Chobe luxury lodges are popular with tourists from all around the world thanks to their huge sunny decks with wilderness views, 5-star service and amazing lavish amenities in rooms and living areas
  • Kasane is the cute town buzzing with people on their way somewhere: to Vic Falls, Livingstone, into the Delta and to the Savuti Swamps up north. Where would you be going?

Come and discover Botswana with us, a premier African travel destination made for excellence in game viewing.

Chobe River for Boat Cruises

Romantic sundowner boat cruises are the diamond in Botswana’s Chobe tiara. It’s famous for its elephants, especially during the Botswana dry season, May through to October, when the huge mammals come down in herds to drink and play. Fish eagles fly across your vision to catch their evening fish meal and antelopes mingle with zebra in a phenomenal blend of textures, bush sounds and visual imagery. View this wide expanse of water, floodplains, forests and sand ridges from a boat or 4×4. 

Imagine sipping a cold beer on a houseboat at dusk? This dream can come true if you plan your prime safari holiday for the dry season when animals congregate here. Chobe River’s famous elephant herds are waiting to fill your lenses with wonder. 

Chobe Savuti for Floodplains

Picture the massive Chobe River spreading into wetlands up north, where the boundaries of Chobe Park meet the Caprivi Strip of Namibia, Vic Falls in Zimbabwe and Zambia’s massive Zambezi River. This is the awe-inspiring floodplain region of the Linyanti-Savute marsh and channel, a major water source for Chobe and the Okavango Delta just south of this extensive protected area. 

It is hard to believe that for nearly 30 years, this incredible water source actually dried up – but it has since thankfully started flowing again. Wildlife and landscapes suffered in this drought. To this day, water pans dry up in the hot summers of May through to October but thank goodness for the creation of three artificial waterholes where animals congregate and go about life as usual. Lions come to prey on easy pickings, and you can see them clearly in the more barren landscape.
