Location: Chobe National Park, bounded by the Chobe River in the north of the country, covers 10,566 square km.
It has one of the greatest concentrations of game on the African continent, including the world's largest elephant population, estimated to be around 120,000.
A highlight of any safari to Chobe is definitely a sunset cruise down the Chobe River, watching huge herds of
elephants and other game congregate along the water's edge as the setting sun bathes the river and surrounding bush in a luminous, golden glow.
