Home to the largest concentration of elephants (estimated at around 50,000), the Chobe National Park is one of the world’s leading wildlife destinations. Chobe National Park is Botswana’s first national park, and also the most biologically diverse. Located in the north of the country, it is Botswana’s third largest park, after the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the Gemsbok National Park, and has one of the greatest concentrations of game in all of Africa.
The famous Chobe River, which forms the park’s northern boundary, provides a permanent source of water for the region’s high volume of wildlife, making the river an important focal point for safari enthusiasts.
