The Chobe river is an unforgettable sight. It is the lifeline of the local wildlife, and is usually occupied by schools of African Elephants or other packs of indigenous wildlife.
The original inhabitants of this area were the San bushmen. They were nomadic hunter-gatherers who were constantly moving from place to place to find new food sources and habitable lands. Today one can find San paintings inside rocky hills of the park.
The landscape ranges from marshes and wetlands to open savannah plains. During the dry seasons, tourists going on safari get a chance to view warthogs, impalas, zebras, wildebeests and the all too well known African Elephant, of which the park contains a population of over fifty thousand.
The special thing about the Chobe National park is its choice of tour methods. Either enjoy getting off the beaten track in open-sided vehicles for close-up viewing of the indigenous wildlife, or rather cruise along the Chobe River for a similar experience from a more peaceful perspective. If the authentic African feel is what you are searching for, look no further
