Chobe National Park on Botswana’s north west border is a pristine wilderness of open plains, baobab trees, ancient woodland, swamps and flood plains and is home to the greatest concentration of game in the entire southern African subcontinent. One of Africa’s most beautiful rivers, the Chobe River forms the Park’s northern boundary. Victoria Falls is only 100 km away, so many people combine a safari in Chobe with a visit to the Victoria Falls.
The Chobe riverfront area is most famous for its large herds of elephants and buffalo, which come down to the river in huge herds to drink during the dry winter months. During this season, one may see hundreds of elephants at one time. Other species include waterbuck, lechwe, puku (this is the only part of Botswana where they can be seen), giraffe, kudu, roan and sable, impala, warthog, bushbuck, monkeys and baboons, along with the accompanying predators lion, leopard, hyena and jackal. Over 460 bird species have been recorded in the park, making it one of Africa’s premier venues for bird Safaris.
A highlight of Chobe is taking a river cruise, which allows you to get up close with hippo, crocodile and a mind-boggling array of water birds. You also get really close to animals that come down to the river.

I assist the tour consultants in the preparation of the travel documents that are presented to their clients upon arrival in Africa. Based on the itinerary that the tour consultants send me, I draw up the travel vouchers and print out any air tickets. I also compile a folder of interesting tourist information and detailed maps of the areas the clients will be visiting and write detailed travel directions from one point to the next. I have never managed to get a client lost!
