Chobe National Park
Chobe is the country's most diverse park in biological terms. It's divided into the Serondela, the Savuti Marsh, the Linyanti Marsh and hinterland regions, each with something different to explore.
Chobe is classic big game country where great herds of buffalo and elephants roam. Chobe is the first National Park in Botswana and offers four distinct ecosystems. It is also famous for wandering leopards and large elephant herds.

Best time to visit Chobe National Park
Visit us at any time of the year
Botswana enjoys markedly different seasons that attract different types of wildlife, meaning that any season is an excellent season to visit us.
The Celsius ranges from 18-31 degrees and daily afternoon thundershowers mean the landscape is rich in greens and blues. The wildlife is spread out in good numbers and all migrant bird species are present.
The air is drier and the temperatures dip ever so slightly. The wildlife is starting to concentrate on water systems. There is very good all-round viewing however most of the migrant bird species have now gone north.
The temperatures drop to zero degrees at night but are a warm 25 during the day. There are large wildlife concentrations around water sources and the vegetation is thinning, which makes for excellent visibility.
The hot parched land lies in anticipation of spring’s first rains. Animals are drawn closer to permanent remaining water sources and the first migrant birds return. The first rains make for good wildlife viewing.
