Located in the northwest of Botswana, near the borders of Zambia, Zimbabwe and Namibia is Chobe National Park, the third largest national park to be experienced on Botswana safaris. Covering approximately 11,700 square kilometres (4,517.39 square miles) of floodplains, swamps and woodland, Chobe was Botswana’s first national park.

The original concept for the park began in 1931 with two goals: to protect the abundant wildlife found in the area and to encourage and promote tourism. By 1953 the project had garnered attention from the government and by 1960 Chobe Game Reserve was established. Seven years later the reserve was designated as a national park and in 1975 human activity was exempt from Chobe.

The park is divided into four parts: the Chobe Riverfront, the Ngwezumba pans, Savuté and Linyanti. The Chobe Riverfront is the most visited of Botswana’s big game country and is famed for its buffalo and elephant herds. Ngwenzumba pans are large clay pans that fill up during rainy season, attracting wildlife that move away from permanent water sources on a Botswana safari.

Savuté is located in the interior of the park and while it hosts most of Chobe’s species, it is best known for predators like lions and cheetahs. In Linyanti Marsh birdlife is abundant and there are large concentrations of lions, leopards and hippos. With excellent game viewing opportunities and an accessible location, Chobe National Park is one of the most popular attractions. on Botswana safaris
