Chobe National Park Okavango Delta

Okavango & Chobe

This package includes a 3 night African wildlife safari in Chobe National Park followed by a 2 night Okavango Delta safari in the natural wonderland & rich waterways of the Delta.

Chobe National Park is 11,000 sq km in size and is home to Botswana’s most varied wildlife. Your lodge is located on the riverfront strip along the northern tier of the park and this area contains the largest concentration of wildlife. Chobe is famed with having the largest concentration of elephant in Africa but also have large herds of buffalo and regular sightings of lion, wild dog, puku, red lechwe, sable, giraffe and roan antelope. Your package includes daily game drives in the park and river cruises and game viewing by boat.

The Okavango Delta is a natural phenomena where the 1430km Okavango River rises in central Angola, then flows south east through Namibia and into Botswana. Here 18.5 million cubic metres of water annually spreads like an open hand across the flat landscape, eventually losing itself in 16,000 sq km maze of lagoons, channels and islands. In this desert country the mass of water attracts an abundance of bird and other wildlife and is one of the major natural attractions of Africa. Your lodge will provide the perfect sanctuary after your game viewing activities including guided walking safaris and mokoro (dug out canoes) excursions.
