CHOBE NATIONAL PARK HOLIDAYS

Located in Botswana's north, Chobe National Park is the country's third largest national park and boasts one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. It is world renowned for it's elephant population - estimated at 100,000, possibly the largest elephant concentration in Africa.

Established in 1968 and covering almost 12,000 square kilometres, Chobe National Park is the most accessible game country in Botswana. It was in the 1850s when Dr. Livingstone arrived in Botswana and since then scores of visitors have come here to experience the diversity of wildlife and landscapes that Chobe offers.

The beautiful Chobe River supports a diversity of wildlife that is hard to match. The blue water of the river cuts it's way through the Kalahari Basin, bordering the park to the north. The extreme Northeast of the park is known as the Serondela, consisting of lush floodplains and dense woodland, where the Chobe River is a major watering spot. When in flood the array of bird life is excellent with stork, ibis and other waterfowl. During the dry season wildlife takes up residence nearby to take advantage of the permanent water. This provides one of the perfect opportunities to view the large numbers of elephant, giraffe, Cape buffalo and the predators they attract.

Chobe can be divided in to different ecosystems, the Serondela being one of the most visited. Another well known area is the Savuti Marsh which constitutes the western stretch of the park, covering 10,800 km². A relic of a large inland lake, the marsh is fed by the erratic Savuti channel, which is dependent on the unusual tectonic movements that affects Botswana, Savute is a lush paradise of grassland and life-giving waters. Located at the Northwest corner of the park and adjacent to the Linyati River is the Linyati Marsh. Much like the Serondela and Savuti Marsh, the mix of open woodlands, flood plains and lagoons are home to large concentrations of lions and elephants. Hippos wallow in the waters, crocodile laze in the sun and rich birdlife surround the area.
