- Chobe National Park
usually part of a larger itinerary
A Chobe safari is usually part of a larger itinerary in Botswana. The Chobe National Park lies close to the Okavango Delta and Moremi Game Reserve; together the three destinations make for a wonderfully diverse and rewarding safari. Slightly further afield lie Botswana’s Kalahari reserves, offering a dramatic contrast to the Chobe Park’s more watered landscapes. Victoria Falls is just across the border from the Chobe River, and short-flight connections to South Africa mean you can easily add on Cape Town or the Kruger.
Africa’s favourite city is home to Table Mountain, Robben Island, Boulders Beach penguin colony and Cape Point. Elegant wine estates lie just out of town and there’s shark-cage diving and whale watching. In summer you’ll enjoy beach weather and festivals too. Fly direct from Maun, Botswana’s travel hub, or travel via Johannesburg.
Whether you go overland camping or fly-in accommodated, you’ll have the chance to combine Chobe with the teeming wetlands of the Okavango Delta. We recommend a camp in the deep delta for water-based activities plus a land-based one in Moremi Game Reserve or adjoining private reserve for game drives.
The Smoke that Thunders lies less than 100 kilometres from the Chobe River. You can visit Victoria Falls on a day trip from your Chobe River lodge but it’s easy to add one or two nights there onto your Chobe safari. Victoria Falls has accommodation for every kind of traveller and Africa’s widest range of adventure and safari activities.
