Day Trip to Chobe

Take a day trip to the beautiful Chobe National Park in Botswana. Chobe is well known for its high biodiversity, with extensive river-frontage, floodplains, grassland and dense woodland terrain. It is one of the most game-rich wildlife parks in the country. The Puku antelope may be seen on the floodplains. Birdlife is prolific, especially along the riverfront, including spoonbills, ibis and many types of ducks and waterfowl. Migrant bee-eaters are seen in summer. Chobe National Park is geographically beautiful and makes for a lovely day trip along the river and back inland through the forest and grassland.
