CHOBE NATIONAL PARK & CHOBE RIVER

Safari in spectacular Chobe!

The Chobe National Park established in 1968 covers 11,700 square kilometers and is situated in the northern most part of Botswana. Park stretches from the tip of northern Botswana to the fringes of the Okavango Delta. It has a wide range of distinctive landscapes, from the emerald floodplains of the Chobe River to the sweeping grasslands of the Savuti Marsh and skeletal leadwood trees in the Savuti Channel.
Encompassing swamps, floodplains and woodlands it is the third largest Park or Reserve in the country after Kgalagadi Transfontier Park and the largest of them all the Central Kalahari Game reserve.

With such varied environments and habitats there’s a magnificent array of wildlife. A profusion of palatable grass species attracts a variety of herbivores, including wildebeest, impala, kudu, waterbuck, giraffe, and tsessebe. The puku is found, as is the endemic Chobe bushbuck. Predator sightings are good, with leopard, cheetah, wild dog, and large prides of lion that hunt elephant. From servals to side-striped jackals, the list is endless.

All that said, Chobe is most famous for its elephant and buffalo populations, both of which can herd in mammoth proportions. With an estimated 40,000 to 60,000 elephants, these gentle giants constantly surround you. In the dry season the Chobe River sees thousands lining the banks and crossing the water. Boat trips at this time provide excellent photograph opportunities.

The Chobe River forms its northern boundary and in the extreme south-west it borders the Moremi Game Reserve. The riverfront is a markable wildlife area due to the permanent water source of the Chobe River. Most wildlife activity occurs along the banks of the river - especially during the drier winter months (May – October) when animals congregate at the river to quench their thirst. The spectacle of all the animals coming to drink and frolic at the water's edge is a sight t behold! Birding enthusiasts will find the riverfront a fantastic destination at this time with more than 400 species of birds, including migratory species and numerous birds of prey.

Chobe River Area Camp

Chobe safari days!

Located on a rocky hilltop with the Chobe River below, the endless plains of the Kalahari Basin disappear into the horizon: the sense of timeless space is worth a pocketful of gold any day.

Opting for a statelier imprint, perhaps complimenting its commanding view, the camp eschews the standard timber and thatch tented camp style so popular in Botswana and East Africa. Instead you can expect rough-finished sandstone walls, corrugated tin roofs, timber beams, polished floors and a quirky old-world farmstead feel that is right at home in the African bush.

Large well-spaced chalets, along the ridge and each one taking in that magnificent view. Rustic-looking they may be but inside they are anything but. Luxurious beds, en suite bathrooms - complete with indoor and outdoor showers - and a private deck turn your room into a palace. The screed floors, sand-filled walls and deep shade provide natural cool in the Kalahari.
The main lodge also salutes the glorious view with seating areas galore including a large wooden deck in front and teak Morris chairs and day beds from which to enjoy both view and icy drink. With just 24 guests at any time, dining is an elaborate table d’hôte affair made less formal by using individual tables.

And then the wildlife! This where you come to see elephants. And lions, leopards, wild dogs, buffalos, hyenas, giraffes, hippos, crocodiles, vultures, roan and sable antelope, birds by the bucket load and much, much more. Guided game drives and river safaris happen twice a day and you can also visit the local village and take a guided walk through the bush.

Full-board accommodation in 10 double rooms and 1 family room; en suite bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers; private balcony; swimming pool; dining area; viewing deck; bar; lounge

ACTIVITIES
Lots of options available! Game drives in open safari vehicles into Chobe National Park; river safaris in delta boats; birding; village visits and bush walks!

VICTORIA FALLS

7th wonder of the world!

Click for activities

The Victoria Falls – Now in it's 150 millionth fantastic year - Reaches Its zenith in about May each year. It’s a truly awe-inspiring experience – the sight, the sound, the smell; the humbling feeling that here indeed is Nature’s Supreme Masterpiece. No photograph can begin to depict the reality…and nothing prepares you for your first sight. .

The Victoria Falls presents a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe - the largest sheet of falling water in the world and significant worldwide for its exceptional geological and geomorphological features and active land formation processes with outstanding beauty attributed to the falls i.e. the spray, mist and rainbows.

David Livingstone, was the first European to see the Victoria Falls in 1855. The Scottish explorer, is believed to have been the first European to view the falls, and he named them Victoria Falls in honor of Queen Victoria.

Known locally as Mosi-Oa-Tunya or "the smoke that thunders" because of the spray made by the mass of water dropping 100 meters below in the gorges. 50 Years later, missionaries and traders settled in the small Zambian town of Livingstone and the railway bridge over the Zambezi was built.

Wonderful comfortable king-sized (or twin) beds are draped with top-quality cotton bed linen and canopied with mosquito netting. From your bed, you can watch the sunrise tint the sky pink through the sliding glass doors.

HWANGE NATIONAL PARK

Safari in the Hwange!

In the nineteen century this land was the royal hunting reserve of Mzilikazi and his successor Lobengula. It was declared a game reserve in 1928 and with neighboring Robins Game sanctuary, become a national park under the National Park Act of 1949. Originally Robins Game sanctuary belonged to H G Robins, a cattle rancher. Because his herds were constantly under attack by lion and leopard, Robins turned the ranch into a wildlife preserve. Later in exchange for a new house and a water supply he gave the sanctuary to the government.

Situated in the south west of Zimbabwe between Bulawayo and Victoria Falls. There are two distinct geographic zones, neither are able to support viable agriculture. The flora of the well-drained northern area, part of the Zambezi watershed, is dominated by mopane and mixed Terminalia, which is distinctly different from the rest.

Covering more than 5,863 square miles or 3,607,738.,569 aces it has more animals and a greater variety of species -107- than any other park in the country, and more than 400 species of birds.
Water remains the single most important management factor in Hwange's continued existence - absolutely vital to the survival of what is perhaps Africa's single largest concentration of elephant. The constant maintenance of the artificial but natural looking water pans, complete with resident hippo's and crocodile, has been a major factor sustaining this ecological treasury. Without them Hwange national park would return to the empty wasteland it once was, animals would die in their thousands.

HWANGE CLIMATE
Winter Months - Mid May, June, July, early August, although the days are warm with beautiful blue skies, the evenings can get extremely cold and temperatures below freezing are not uncommon, so definitely bring warm clothing. It's cold I promise you!
Summer months - September through to May. Hot to extremely hot days and warm evenings.
Rainy season - Generally between late November and April although the occasional rain can occur out of these dates

BEST GAME VIEWING MONTHS
August, September, October and early November are by far the best months for game viewing in this park. Water becomes extremely scarce and the animals congregate around the few pumped waterholes. Sitting patiently and quietly at one of these water holes will reward you with very good game viewing.

During the rainy season from late November through to April, a completely different park emerges to that of the dry season. Parched savannahs turn into lush fields with an abundance of grazing. The animals disperse and game viewing becomes limited. It's called the green season and has its own magic as this is when the park and all the animals rejuvenate themselves, feeding like crazy on the abundance of food. Newly born animals can be seen everywhere and the birdlife is absolutely prolific.

Hwange National Park lodge

Big game safari!

This tented lodge is situated in a 5,000 acre private concession inside the Ngamo Forest on the edge of the remote and unspoilt southeastern corner of Hwange National Park. Bomani is famous for its massive herds of elephants - hundreds can be spotted in a day on safari in the dry season - as well as it's unique and diverse landscapes, from impressive forests of teak and other hardwoods to some of the largest savannah grasslands in the Park.

These wide-open plains attract an abundance of plains game which also encourages a considerable number of large predators: the lions' roars can often be heard from camp; several leopard territories surround the plains, wild dog den in the area in winter, and during the dry season it's not uncommon to spot prowling cheetah and hyena. Once, rolling Kalahari sand dunes covered the area, but over time the rains turned the desert into an enormous lake. Today, the dry, expansive plains are dotted with natural water pans and Ilala Palms, offering a peaceful sanctuary to the countless herds of wildlife that call the area home.
