Chobe National Park

Chobe National Park

Located in Botswana’s far north, Chobe National Park is world-renowned for its variety and concentration of wildlife. While it is the third largest park in Botswana, everyone agrees it is the most diverse. The idea of classifying the area as a national park emerged in the 1930s. Desiring to protect the native wildlife in this unique region, the country created the Chobe Game Reserve in 1960, and in 1967 the reserve was officially declared a national park.

The park can be divided into four distinct areas, each with a corresponding ecosystem. The Serondela area (or Chobe riverfront) is in the northeast section of the park and includes the Chobe river and its floodplains. Due to the herds that come here for watering during the dry season (and probably also due to this region’s proximity to Victoria Falls), this is one of the most visited regions of the park.

The Savuti Marsh area is primarily rolling savannas serving as the homeland for most of the park’s wildlife. But large concentrations of wildlife also reside in the Linyanti Marsh area, including the park’s most well known inhabitants, the huge herds of elephant. Lion, hyena, zebra, cheetah, leopard, wild dog, wildebeest, warthog, kudu, impala, hippo, and antelope are just a few of the large land mammals to be found in this wildlife paradise.
