LODGE ATTRACTIONS

CHOBE NATIONAL PARK The Chobe National Park covers an area of approximately 10 700 square kilometers.Established in 1961 with the first Game Warden, Mr. Pat Hepburn, appointed in April 1962. It is home to the largest concentration of Elephants in Africa, estimated at 45 000. Indigenous to the park is the puku and Chobe bushbuck.

Other game such as lion, leopard, buffalo, cheetah, kudu, giraffe and an abundant bird life of approximately 450 species, add theatre to the magical kingdom. Serondela Camp, 10 kms west of the park gate, is Chobe's most accessible campsite. According to game drivers, Serondela was once an inhabited village, which was uprooted and shifted to Kasane when Chobe became a national park. By day, campers are under constant surveillance by cheeky baboons, who long ago learnt that all the best pickings come from tents and backpacks. One of the best ways to enjoy the riverfront is to take a river trip in the late afternoon, when the hippos amble onto dry land and the riverfront fills with elephants heading down for a drink and a romp in the water. A Chobe visit will probably entail a cruise or game drive, during which you will have an excellent chance of observing lions and cheetah, and by day, the water is full of hippos, which submerge at dawn and emerge at dusk. Buffalo are present in their thousands, and amid the scrub live numerous giraffes and zebra.
