Home to a population of over 80 000 elephants, Chobe is one of the best places on the planet to view these giant pachyderms in their natural environment. Great herds of buffalo hunted by large prides of lion, a notable zebra migration and the aqautic pods of hippo alongside sinister crocodiles make this a game viewing spectacle. The Chobe River is most popular for its boat-based game viewing and fishing for the predatory Tigerfish. There are a number of hotels and safari lodges on the periphery of the park and several bush camps and remote camping sites within the park. Self-drive and guided safaris take place in the park where one can get intimately acquainted with Africa's larger mammal species. Chobe is also situated close enough to Victoria Falls to do day trips and is well worth a visit for those heading in to the area. For those looking for a true wilderness experience, the Savuti and the Linyanti areas are phenomenal and host incredible concentrations of wildlife.
