    That same evening we heading out onto the Chobe River for a cruise and to watch the sunset.
    Lucky for us we were there way before the sunset and so we saw tons of great wildlife whilst sailing down the river with a beer in hand!

    I LOVE the hippos! Check out these who were just chilling out in the waters that evening!

    Soon enough we started spotting the herds of elephants that Chobe National Park is famous for!
    They tended to hang out near the waterholes, but as you will see in the photos we also came across them inland too!

    Our 1st Elephant of the day!

    by kentishgirl Written Feb 8, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Soon enough a huge elephant comes strolling across the plain by the waterhole!
    He knew we were there but totally refused to look at us! It was as if he came wandering across knowing that we were all eagerly waiting there with our cameras to spot him!

    Waterholes

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    You just know that when you come across a waterhole you will find plenty of wildlife!
    They are either bathing or feeding, and here we were in Chobe - known as the land of elephants, and we still hadnt spotted one!
    So we headed straight for a huge waterhole........and found lots of cute little dancing antelopes.

    Kudu

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Botswana Wildlife wise was different to Eastern Africa, this is classed now as Southern Africa and some of the animals here wont be found in the East and vice versa.

    Greater Kudu for example are found in southern Africa and not so much in eastern so straight away we made a new find in this cute Kudu frolicking in the trees.

    by kentishgirl Written Feb 8, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Not long after arriving in Chobe National Park we made our first spot of the day.
    A little Warthog wandering along.
    When they walk its like they are skipping - bless them - I am fond of Warthog, they are quite an ugly animal but have such a cuteness about them!

    Entering Chobe National Park

    by kentishgirl Written Feb 8, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Armed with cameras, spare batteries, sunscreen and hats we made our way by jeep into Chobe National Park.

    As usual when you enter a game park - you must go through the boring registration process first at the gates.

    To be honest, by the time we arrived in Chobe I was a little "gamed" out! I never realised that was possible, but the animals as always made my eyes light up and I realised that I could watch game everyday for the rest of my life and still enjoy it! LOL.

    Savuti Area, more elephants

    by sachara Updated Oct 15, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After our first visit at the waterplace a drove around in the area for a while. We didn't see many animals, so we returned at the same waterplace.

    It was still a coming and going of many groups of elephants. It was very fascinating. So we we stayed at that place till the sunset.

    After driving around not far from the Savuti Camp we visit a waterplace. Allready from a far distance we saw the elephants. We approached at a distance of 10M. It was amazing to see about 40 elephants, splashing and pushing in the water.

    Suddenly two huge elephants started a fight just in front of our car. It the most breathtaking event of my trip!

    Do a boatcruise

    by gonzo747 Written Oct 13, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The good thing about a boatcruise is that you can get close to elephants which are next to the water.
    On land it's pretty dangerous to get that close.
    There are many crocodiles and hippos in the water

    Elephant Bath

    by Zanzibargirl Written Aug 25, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chobe being the home of the worlds largest population of Elephant - of course lived up to the expectations. The highlight elephant viewing of the day was on the riverboat cruise in which I got to see a soal bull elephant with lost tusk frolicking in the waters of the Chobe River. Washing itself, spraying itself and enjoying the sunshine before the afternoon rain.

    Chobe Boat Ride and lunch

    by Zanzibargirl Written Aug 25, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Also organised through backpackers Bazaar was what turned out to be a private riverboat tour for two. It included lunch and was extremely comfy with lots of room to move. I even had a kip on board on the way back wilst through hazed eyes watching the hippo surface in the rain. But before the rain hit the highlight was watching the elephant bull bathe. Absolutely awesome.

    Chobe Game Drive

    by Zanzibargirl Written Aug 25, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chobe of course is one of the best places to do a game drive in the world and one way to see it is to hop into one of the 4wd vehicles that allow you to get the best possible viewing action of the Elephants that Chobe is known for plus the many other animals that inhibit this massive national park. I booked the game drive out of Vic falls as a day trip with a company called Backpackers Bazaar. They organised transfers, the vehicle and our cruise. See further tips and travelogues for more details.

    Chobe river sunset cruise 5.

    by K.Knight Written Dec 26, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the end of another exciting day in Africa, and the end of the Chobe river sunset cruise, it was time to bid a final farewell to the hippo's who seem to dominate and own this place! These animals were so thick in places you could have walked across the river without getting your feet wet!

    Life does not get any better!
