As Botswana’s flagship park, Chobe National Park has the greatest variety of animal and plant life of any of the country’s natural areas. Just an hour’s drive from Victoria Falls and near the borders of Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe, the Serondela section of Chobe National Park is within easy reach of Kasane airport. So this destination can easily be added to a variety of African safaris.
A boat trip on the Chobe River is a must. It typically offers intimate views of adult elephants bathing while their young ones frolic in the shallows. You’ll get unmatched opportunities to spot African fish eagles, kingfishers, bee-eaters, and numerous other birds from the water. Then take to land in search of lions, kudus, red lechwe antelopes, guineafowl, monitor lizards, and kori bustards. Step out of the safari vehicle for a chance to acquaint yourself with Chobe’s remarkable endemic flora.
