See the Elephants of Chobe National Park
There’s wildlife around every corner in Botswana, and at Chobe National Park you can delve deep into this natural paradise. Chobe consists of four areas - Linyanti, Savute, Ngwenzumba Pans and the shimmering Chobe River. Diverse landscapes of lush floodplains and scattered forests are peppered with small villages of the northern Kalahari Desert where you’re welcomed by locals keen to show you their way of life. The possibilities for wildlife spotting are endless, with huge lion prides, zebra, giraffe and buffalos all present. However, Chobe National Park is best known for its sizeable elephant population. You can be birdwatching from a 4 x 4 when a herd of majestic elephants will slowly wander heavy-footed across your path, trumpeting to each other as they make their way to the river. There are options to stay in the park too, so you don’t miss any of these unique interactions. Ngoma Safari Lodge offers exclusive, 5-star accommodation and is a perfect option for couples and friends. Perched high on the valley’s edge with river and floodplain vistas, you can sip wine on the terrace watching wildlife gather at the watering hole at sunset. Meals are taken around an open fire and if you’re travelling on your honeymoon or with a loved one, staff can organise a private dinner retreat for you. The lodge also offers a host of excursions including cultural trips, river cruises and night safari drives.
