Chobe National Park

Day two of our safari was a whole day visiting Chobe National Park, culminating in a river trip in the afternoon. 

Chobe National Park is located in Botswana’s north eastern district. The Chobe river forming the park’s northern border with Namibia and Zambia. It is flanked in the south west by the Okavango delta and Moremi game reserve, and the Chobe forest reserves which run parallel to the Zimbabwe border in the east.

In addition to the animals, we saw many exotic birds including the following :-

While the birds shown above are beautiful, the sight of vultures feeding on an elephant carcas was very impressive.

The highlight of the day was undoubtedly the trip on the river Chobe where we saw hippos crocodiles and dozens of elephants.
