Chobe

...

... is a very large national park which accounts for a very large swathe of northern Botswana. At 10,700 square kilometres, the reserve forms the heart of a vast wildlife area which stretches south into the Okavango Delta and north into the surrounding countries of Namibia, Angola, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

This area has a reputation for rich wildlife dating back to the earliest reports by explorer David Livingstone and was a famous hunting area from around 1870, until it came under governmental protection in 1967.

The wildlife here can be prodigious, particularly along the Northern Waterfront and around the Savuti Marshes during the peak dry season Jun/Oct.

The main negative is that Chobe suffers terribly from heavy and uncontrolled vehicle traffic. The Northern Waterfront areas around the town of Kasane can become particularly congested and unpleasant, whilst the main overland route also funnels traffic into the otherwise prime Savuti area.
