Chobe

The Chobe River is the arterial life-line that shoulders its way through gigantic teak, jackalberry and mukwa trees towards its confluence with the Zambezi River. Along the way, the Chobe gets tangled up with the Kwando River to form the Linyanti Wetlands - a delta-like area of pristine beauty and exceptional game viewing, especially in the dry months.

Elephants abound along the Chobe River along with the gamut of plains species including buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, wild dog, giraffe, zebra, kudu and so on down the height chart to the rare water-friendly red lechwe and puku antelopes.

Chobe is also near Victoria Falls making the two destinations ideal sight-seeing/safari bedfellows on a circuit that could include many of the other amazing destinations in southern Africa.

In the south of Chobe National Park is Savuti: game viewing destination extraordinaire. The Savuti marshlands offer year-round game viewing with incredible concentrations of wildlife; the famously feuding predators; and the infamous gangs of elephant-hunting lion. If you want to experience the marrow-curdling roar of a lion - Savuti's your place.

If you want to see most of southern Africa's wildlife including giraffe, elephant, zebra, impala, tsessebe, roan, sable, wildebeest, kudu, buffalo, waterbuck, warthog, eland and of course the predators lion, cheetah, wild dog, hyaena, jackal and bat-eared fox... Savuti's your place.

Flowing from the Linyanti Wetlands, the Savuti channel dried up in 1980 leaving a corridor of marsh and grass through the woodland surrounds. After exceptional rains the channel flowed again in 2008 creating a safari stir the likes of which are seldom seen: swimming ostriches, gorging lions and a gaggle of birds all agog at their new-found treasure and raising the big question: has the Savuti channel entered a new era in the inexplicable wet and dry cycle?
