The Chobe supports a diversity of concentrated wildlife which is unlike anywhere else in the country. It is not uncommon to see hundreds of elephants during this time making their way down to the river to drink, bathe and play. On a game drive exploring the water’s edge you may encounter a number of animals at any one time including puka, lechwe and waterbuck, which can only be found in this part of Botswana. The river offers a fantastic avenue for game viewing, but it is not the only way to explore and see animals in the park. A river cruise allows a different vantage point as onlookers get the chance to see crocodile, hippo and other aquatic animals up close. There is also a large array of aquatic birds to be found.
