We set out early today, 07:30, for our adventure in Chobe National Park, considered one of the best game parks in Botswana. We travel to the border post (don’t forget your passport) and once through there we head to the Botswana entry gate, stopping en route to step on a sanitised mat to prevent Foot and Mouth disease entering the country. On arrival in Botswana we transfer to an open safari vehicle for the trip to Chobe National Park and for game viewing in the park. We are headed for the northern section of the park, where the Chobe RIver forms the border in the north. Our adventure begins with a river cruise into the park providing an opportunity to view the many waders and animals that frequent the river banks, as this is a major watering spot, particularly in the dry season. This area is know for its dense woodland, which has attracted herds of elephant resulting in a huge elephant population.
We take a welcome lunch break at the Chobe Game Lodge, where a buffet awaits us. A complimentary drink and tea or coffee is served with lunch.
Feeling revived we set out on our afternoon game drive. Apart from the many elephants we are sure to see, we can expect to see animal species, including buffalo, giraffe, kudu, roan and sable, impala, warthog, bushbuck, monkeys and baboons, along with the accompanying predators lion, leopard, hyena and jackal. Be sure to have your cameras ready and binoculars if you have them. It’s also advisable to have sunscreen and a hat for this 3 hour game drive in the hot, afternoon sun.
