Quick guide to Botswana


Located in the northern Kalahari region; Chobe National Park covers about 11,700 square kilometers, and consists mainly of dense thorny bush emerging from deep alluvial soils. A well-worn safari circuit, made famous by the massive herds of elephant and buffalo and significant prides of lion that have become skilled at to hunting large herbivores.

The Chobe River apparently flows in both directions and holds the secrecy of the Savuti Channel which vanished in recent time.

The highlight to this safari area is Chobe's animal migrations. The animals move with the available food and water in the district, exhibiting the ancient patterns of time. Many head for open plains to the south and east during the rainy months (December to March). Then, eventually, from April to November, as the land dries out and the heat builds, the animals migrate back to the great rivers of the north and west.
