The Chobe National Park, bordering the Caprivi Strip of Namibia and the Zambezi River, bordering Zambia, is home to breeding herds of elephant in their thousands that line the Serondella , drinking and playing at the waters’ edge. Further inland the park features riverine woodlands and grassy plains and is the only place where the puku antelope can be seen. The plains also feature the rare roan and sable antelopes and are frequented by giraffes, buffaloes and predators including a healthy population of wild dog. In the waters of the Chobe, huge crocodiles bask in the sunshine and huge pods of hippo lie submerged.
Bird-life in the Chobe is almost unparalleled in Africa, especially during November when the migratory birds arrive. Signature species include Pel’s Fishing Owl, African Skimmers, Pied & Malachite Kingfishers and Fish Eagles.
The winter months (April to September) are dry and sunny but still warm during the day (cool at night) whilst the summer months (October to March) are characterised by the arrival of the rains and can be very hot.
