The Chobe is always noisy. Imagine the sight of ten elephants. Imagine ten elephant herds. Now try to picture 100,000 elephants. That’s the world’s largest wild elephant population, marching around the Chobe woodland during the dry season.
Elephants are everywhere. Bachelor males lock tusks. Trunk-swinging babies pass your vehicle. Matriarchs lead their herds to water. Giraffe are equally abundant. There is nowhere better in Africa for encounters with the biggest of all the world’s land mammals.
You will have a private driver and vehicle for a day with the elephants. You’ll see other animals as well, including lots of hippos, but the pachyderms are the most unmissable. Not only are there so many, you can get astonishingly close.
