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.

Customer Feedback

Brilliant service and so helpful
by Sally (Blisworth, U.K.)
I stumbled across Victoria Fall Guide by accident, but I am so glad I did. Tony and Boo were so helpful, advising us on the best activities for us as I have mobility issues, and arranging our itinerary and booking everything. I had no worries about using them, or sending a very large payment to someone I didn’t know. Everything they booked for us was so well organised, pick ups on time, knowledgeable and friendly guides, clean transport. We did the walking tour of the falls, the sunset dinner cruise, full day at Chobe, the team, lion encounter and the helicopter and every single one was faultless. We were also due to do the lunar rainbow but unfortunately it was cancelled, however boo arranged the refund immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are so grateful to them for making our special holiday even more so.
