About Chobe National Park

Chobe National Park is the second largest park in Botswana and stretches out across an area of 10,566 sq km. With sections of marshland, flood plains, savannah, grassland, woodland and two rivers, the park is incredibly diverse and makes up some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. The San Bushmen originally inhabited the park and hunted throughout the area. In 1932 a non-hunting area was set up and eventually, in 1957, Chobe became the first National Park in Botswana. Both driving tours and boat excursions along the river are popular ways to see the indigenous game of this park.
