Chobe National Park Day Trip from Victoria Falls

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. (Please note that Visas may be required for some nationalities). From the border post you will then be transferred to the Chobe River where you will embark on a morning game cruise. The game cruise on the Chobe River brings you close to brilliant bird life, pods of watering hippos, primeval crocodiles and elephants, breath-taking in their sheer number. Lunch will be served after the game cruise. After lunch you will then head deeper into the Chobe National Park in an open game drive vehicle. The afternoon’s land-based safari heads deeper into the Park to spot the elusive big cats that make Chobe their home. After the game drive you will be transferred back to the Kasane border post and then back to your hotel in Victoria Falls.
