Chobe Travel Guide
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT A CHOBE SAFARI
Botswana is one of the safest countries to visit in Africa and a world-class safari destination.
Almost half of Botswana's land has been allocated as protected wilderness and national parks, so animal life abounds. Before you embark on your journey, here are the relevant health and travel requirements to consider.
Let's make the trip of your wildest dreams come true!
Half-day and full-day game drives are also on offer, as well as private river cruises that cater to focused interests such as birdwatching in the early mornings. Day trips to the iconic Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and tiger fishing trips along the Kasai channel in Namibia are also easily arranged with pick-ups from our front door. Then there’s the new boat trip that takes you underneath the modern marvel of the Kazungula Bridge and our marvellous candle-lit dinner cruise.
January offers sublime skies, sunsets with colourful clouds, baby animals and beautiful birding thanks to all the migrant visitors that flock for the abundance of food. We also love it when we can use the river road inside the national park, when the Chobe River sits a little lower.
July to October are high season, and the riverfront area attracts more visitors. It can be dry and dusty, but the wildlife is highly concentrated around the river because waterholes have dried up. This makes for unrivalled game-viewing both on the river and via game drives. It is also a colder time of year and can be a more comfortable time to travel.
