What And Where Is Chobe National Park ?

Chobe National Park is a beautiful park that is situated in the northern corner of Botswana. It is a sizable area that is solely reserved for the roaming of wild animals and is famous for its large elephant and lion populations. It is the third largest national park in the country and is about the size of Northern Ireland. It is so diverse and is home to a lot of different species of Southern Africa.

The park is conveniently close to the borders of Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Zambia making it easily accessible. This region is a top choice for safari fans because of its diverse ecosystems, sceneries, and variety of animals. Through the park, the Chobe River has carved out floodplains and woods.

Why Would You Choose A Chobe Day Trip ?

  • It allows you to save costs as you can get a feel of Botswana without having to spend the night there
  • It is easily accessible, about one and a half hours from Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and 2 hours from Livingstone in Zambia
  • It is an excellent addition to the Victoria Falls experience and complements your trip.

What To Expect On A Chobe Day Trip ?

It is important to note that Chobe can be a full day trip or a half day trip. Here we have explained the full day trip and the half day is the same, except that you will be back soon after lunch.

Around 7 a.m., the bus or transport you are going with will pick you up from where you will be staying and you will begin the journey to the border. Take note that you will be driving through a national park, so keep an eye out for wildlife! You will stand in line at customs upon reaching the border before crossing over to the opposite side, where another bus will be waiting.

Don't worry, the guides will help you through the process, so you don't board the wrong bus or get lost. You will then take a short drive from the border to the hotel you'll be using as your main base of stay. All the hotels that the various suppliers utilize for the day excursion have river entrances so it makes it easier to go straight for a cruise.

You will be cruising on the beautiful Chobe River. If you have cruised on the Zambezi, you will also enjoy this unique and relaxing experience. Elephants may be seen here crossing the river, as well as sizable herds of buffalo. Crocodiles and hippos are also very likely to be spotted!

Lunch will be served when you return to the hotel. After having lunch, you will embark on a 4WD safari into a different area of the park. Then, you'll get the chance to examine the scene from a fresh angle when you go on the game drive in the Chobe National Park. You will have fun spotting animals and enjoying the lovely sunset as you sip on cold refreshments and snacks.

You will then return to the hotel to board the bus after the safari is over. They will drop you off at your hotel so that you get ready to head back to the border. You will be heading back at a predicted time of 17h30.

Animals of the Chobe Region

Chobe National Park is known as the land of the giants due to its large herds of elephants and lion population. The cheetah, wild dog, lion, leopard, and hyena are the main predators in Chobe National Park. Also roving the area in search of water and refreshment are sizable herds of elephant and buffalo. Although the rhino population has been severely reduced, it is slowly but successfully being restored into the park's private portions.

Visa and entry information into Botswana

Most Commonwealth nations, EU nations, the UK, and the US are granted a visa upon arrival to Botswana, which is typically valid for 90 days. You can pay in South African rand, Euros, or British pounds for this, which typically costs roughly $30 USD.

A KAZA visa, if you're qualified, is the best choice if you're traveling from Victoria Falls.

The KAZA visa allows unlimited entrance for 30 days into both Zambia and Zimbabwe as well as one day travel to Botswana because the Victoria Falls are located on both sides of the border between the two nations. As a result, this offers greater value and expedited passport clearance because you only require a stamp.

When is the best time to go ?

The dry season lasts from about May through late September or early October. The ideal time to visit Chobe National Park is around this time. It's best toward the end of the season when the ground is entirely dried out. This draws a large number of animals, including hundreds of African elephants, towards the Chobe River.

The elephants' predators, lions, also accompany the vast herds of elephants.

As a result, traveling during these months offers the best chance to see a diverse range of creatures. By boat on the Chobe River, is such a good time that presents some exceptional up-close encounters with nature.

How much is the activity ?

The Chobe day trip is a Victoria Falls Activity provided for by a variety of companies in Victoria Falls.

The prices usually range from 160 USD to 180 USD but it’s always best to confirm in advance if you would like to make a booking.
