Chobe National Park Elephants


Home to Africa’s largest concentration of elephant, the Chobe National Park is fondly and aptly known as ‘The Land of the Giants’. Established in 1968, it was Botswana’s first national park, and measuring almost 11 000 sq km in size, it is the country’s third largest.

Aside from the breath-taking scenery and diverse terrain, a standout feature of the park is the enormous elephant population. Large herds are most visible during the dry season, from April until October, as they congregate around water sources. One such water source is the magnificent Chobe River, which flows along the northeast border of the park. During the rainy season, from November to March, these majestic giants make their way to the southeast stretch of the park, spilling over into northwestern Zimbabwe.

To give you a glimpse of what to expect on an unforgettable Chobe National Park safari, we have put together a photoblog showcasing these gorgeous animals. After all, a picture is worth 1000 words!
