Chobe National Park's river

Elephants. Lots of elephants. Chobe Park is famous for having greater numbers of the big beasts than anywhere else. And you’ll know it. They line up to drink from the Chobe River, their clattering and huffing at the water’s edge accompanied by a chorus of birdsong. Other mammals muscle in the action too: buffalo herds visit the river in the early mornings, and where there are young buffaloes, you may just find lions prowling close nearby. And, almost uniquely for the endangered species, Chobe has a healthy population of African wild dogs. Chobe’s riverfront may not be the ultimate in remote safari experiences, but it is as spectacular and diverse as big game viewing gets.
