Introducing Chobe National Park
Chobe National Park, which encompasses 11,000 sq km, is home to Botswana’s most varied wildlife. The riverfront strip along the northern tier, with its perennial water supply, supports the greatest wildlife concentrations, but when they contain water, the lovely Savuti Marshes of the Mababe Depression in western Chobe also provide prime wildlife habitat and attract myriad water birds. Rarely-visited Ngwezumba, with its pans and mopane forests, is the park’s third major region, and Chobe’s northwestern corner just touches the beautiful Linyanti Marshes.
The northern park entrance lies immediately west of Kasane and is accessible to conventional vehicles. However, to proceed through the park or approach from Maun, you’ll need a high-clearance 4WD. Due to mud and flooding, Savuti may be inaccessible from January to March.
