Covering an area of about 4,250 square miles, Chobe National Park is the third largest game park / reserve in Botswana. The Chobe River forms the northern border and in the southwest, the park borders on the Moremi Reserve. The park consists of four main regions, each with its own types of vegetation and geological features.
A safari along the river’s edge gives the opportunity to see a wide variety of wildlife including waterbucks, lechwes, pukus, giraffes, kudus, roan and sable, impalas, warthogs, bushbucks, monkeys, and baboons, along with the accompanying predators such as lions, leopards, hyenas, and jackals.

Known as “the river that never finds the sea”, Okavango Delta in Botswana is a massive inland delta formed where the Okavango River reaches a tectonic trough in the central part of the basin of the Kalahari.
There is something elemental about the Okavango Delta – the rising and falling of its waters, the daily drama of its wildlife encounters, its soundtrack of lions roaring, saw-throated leopard barks and the crazy whoop of a running hyena, the mysteries concealed by its papyrus reeds swaying gently in the evening breeze.
Okavango delta is both a permanent and seasonal home to a wide variety of wildlife including African elephant, Cape buffalo, tsessebe, blue wildebeest, giraffe, Nile crocodile, lion, cheetah, leopard, brown hyena, spotted hyena, springbok, greater kudu, sable antelope, black rhinoceros, southern white rhinoceros, Burchell's zebra, common warthog and chacma baboon.
Notably, the endangered Cape wild dog still survives within the Okavango Delta, exhibiting one of the richest pack densities in Africa. The delta also includes over 400 species of birds, including African fish eagle, Pel's fishing owl, crested crane, lilac-breasted roller, hammerkop, ostrich, and sacred ibis.
