What to Experience in Botswana

Chobe

The Chobe National Park is the second largest park in Botswana covering 10,566 square Km . Chobe is definitely a year round destination which offers guests a safari that includes sighting of vast herds of migratory Elephant herds numbering over 120,000 as well as large concentrations of predators. 

The park is divided into four very different eco systems from lush plains and dense forests found along the Chobe River in the North East, the Savuti Marsh areas in the West and Linyanti Swamps in the North -West as well as the dry areas in between. Chobe is truly unique as it provides a perfect habitat for a wide range of wildlife and it the perfect base from which to start your Botswana Safari or combine this experience with that of Zambia and Zimbabwe due to their close proximity.

Savuti

Savuti is an area famous for its large lion and spotted hyaena populations and is often described as one of the best wildlife-viewing areas in Africa today due to its high concentrations of wildlife present during all seasons.

The Savuti Marsh is a large lake cut off from its main water supply and is fed by the Savuti channel, This area has also given rise to the famous Okavango Delta and is filled by seasonal rains which bring hundreds of birds and thousands of migrating Zebras which provide a feast for predators.  We suggest a minimum of 3 nights in this area to allow yourself time to experience all the Savuti has to offer.
