120,000 elephants roam Chobe – more than anywhere else in the world. It is during the dry season in particular that Chobe impresses, with vast herds congregating at the Chobe and Linyanti Rivers.
The Chobe riverfront is the most accessible safari area, reached easily by road from Kasane. Safari boats ply the river while huge herds of elephant, buffalo, lechwe and puku gather on the banks. If you want to be in the thick if it - head for the river. The forest reserve is a quieter region of Chobe, with far less traffic and stunning views over the river below it.
The Savute region of Chobe is more remote. The 100km Savute channel which mysteriously dried up in 1982, only to flow again in 2008 following heightened rains has once again reached the Savuti Marsh, bringing life to the area. Zebra migrate in December/February time and the rare Klipspringer antelope can also be seen here. This is an unpredictable and exciting safari area.
Linyanti is the region in the north-west of Chobe, home to the private Linyanti and Selinda concessions and consists of lagoons, marshes and mopane forest. Lions are abundant and wild dogs den in the area. This is the place to see big predators.
