Chobe National Park is located in the far north of Botswana where the four countries of Namibia, Zambia, Botswana and Zimbabwe meet. This area is also where the Zambezi and Chobe rivers converge and during high rainfall the Zambezi River actually pushes the Chobe River back and as a result a vast marshland is created which gives it a unique African ecosystem with immense biodiversity compared to anywhere else on the continent. Chobe is famous for its large concentrations of big game and hence has become a very popular safari destination. Animals you are likely see on a Chobe camping safari  include elephant, buffalo, crocodile, hippo, giraffe, kudu, zebra, lions, leopard and many others. Chobe National park also has a large variety of bird species.

Most accommodation in this area of the Chobe National Park (Chobe Riverfront) is situated in the town of Kasane, details of which you can read here Chobe Riverfront Accommodation with only one expensive luxury lodge inside the park itself - Chobe Game Lodge.

This lack of accommodation within the park makes the Chobe camping safaris such a popular option. These camping safaris are by no means luxurious but they are perfectly comfortable - if it's game viewing and an authentic safari experience at a reasonable price that you are seeking then these camping safaris are just for you.

The mobile safari operators have privately designated campsites inside the park that are not accessible by the normal public allowing you a more private an exclusive safari.

There are some mobile safari operators that go beyond Chobe and into the Okavango Delta and other regions, offering packages that encompass the best of Botswana.

Good Afternoon Boo,
Just wanted to let you know that we are now back in Swaziland and had an incredibly fun time enjoying Victoria Falls! All the activities lived up to the hype and I would like to thank you for all your help in organising a busy but full holiday for us! Everything went smoothly from the moment we arrived to the time we left.
Also wondering where you prefer to have your reviews written?
Thanks again!

Fantastic Itinerary
by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
Dear Boo
We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
Best wishes
