The Chobe National Park is host to the worlds largest elephant population at an estimated 50,000 elephants. It is famous for its large herds of elephants, buffalo’s and zebras. There are also huge prides of lions in the park. Chobe National Park is home to some of the most diverse species of animals in the world. Chobe is also known to have over 460 bird species, making it one of the world’s premier destinations for birdwatchers. The Chobe River is one of the only rivers in the World that flows in both directions. During the dry season the river flows East. But during the rainy season the flow of the Zambezi River pushes upstream to make the Chobe River flow West.Your day will begin with a transfer from your hotel in Victoria Falls to the Kasane border post.
