The Chobe River demarcates the northern border of Botswana
with Namibia’s Caprivi Strip. Bordered by lush vegetation, this area is filled with wildlife and the scene of many a Namibian luxury safari experience. Exclusive establishments line the banks on the Namibian side of the Chobe, providing tourists with a haven of exploration into the natural riches that this area has to offer.
Elephant are numerous around Chobe, which has the highest populations of pachyderms on Earth, accompanied by hordes of buffalo and masses of zebra and wildebeest. Hippo, crocodile and a great variety of birds are also present, along with giraffe, warthog, hyena, jackal, baboons and the highly endangered wild dog, while lion and cheetah are spotted from time to time. On rare occasions the elusive oribi, puku and grysbok can be seen.
One of the best ways to enjoy the treasures of the Chobe is on an afternoon boat cruise, or better still, on an elegantly equipped Chobe houseboat
, where you can experience the comings and goings along the waterfront without disturbing the game.
