Botswana’s first, and also the most biologically diverse national park, Chobe is famed for being home to the world’s largest and densest herds of gigantic elephants. And not just limited to elephants, Chobe also boasts one of the highest game concentrations in Africa. Located far off in the northeastern part of the country, Chobe's elephant population is estimated to be around 50,000, which seems to have been escalated since 1990 from a few thousand. The elephants here are of Kalahari descent, known to be the largest in size among all recognized elephant populations. Featuring a fragile, short tusk, these massive pachyderms are usually spotted near the Chobe riverfront during the dry months. In addition to the mighty elephants, Chobe also hosts Cape Buffaloes, lions, hippos, zebras and the rare Roan antelope and Oribi antelope, plus 440 bird species. Enjoy luxury camping, endless safaris and exploring the wetlands by houseboat in the 3rd largest game reserve of the country.
