Chobe National Park
Botswana, especially Chobe National Park, is home to Africa’s largest elephant population and buffaloes.
Fondly known as ‘The Land of The Giants’, Chobe National Park in the north of beautiful Botswana is home to Africa’s largest elephant population and buffaloes. It consists of rich ecosystems, diverse landscapes and an almost unparalleled abundance of wildlife and birdlife all centred around the stunning Chobe River, and in close proximity to a number of Southern Africa’s other safari must-sees.
Chobe National Park sits in close proximity to the borders with Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia, making it a popular and easy day trip destination for visitors from Victoria Falls as well as for those on tours throughout the wider region of southern Africa.
Chobe visit can be conveniently combined with a number of Botswana’s and the wider region’s other unmissable safari gems including the Okavango Delta. The town of Kasane on the border of Chobe National Park has a small international airport and a good array of other services and amenities.
Activities and wildlife
Rwanda has two rainy seasons: the first is from around February to June and the second from September through December. These are separated by two dry seasons: June to September, during which there is often no rainfall at all, and a shorter dry period from December to February. Typically the west and North-west of Rwanda receives more rainfall annually than the South-east and east of the country.
