When we all do Botswana, we have the urge that Chobe/Serondela is just an entry point and the real places to go to are Savute, Linyanti and Moremi. I was wrong - Serondela had a lot to offer. All the animal sightings are pretty much...More

We used the parking arrangements as per their website and instructions. I asked their representative if it was safe. All three of our vehicles was broken into. Afterwards my guides found out that they could have made much safer arrangements. This is very suspect.

I don't think there is an animal in this part of Africa that we haven't seen in the Chobe National park. Large families of elephants, prides of lions (one of them devouring recently hunted buffalo), buffalos, impalas, kudus, hippos, crocodiles, baboons, variety of birds etc,...More

We came here our last full day in Africa and were amazed at the number and variety of animals we saw. There were herds of elephants nearly every 20 minutes or so--some just crossing the road, others crammed under the shade of a tree, taking...More

The guide here was outstanding, showing hidden birds, snakes, and hippos. Two hours was just about the right time on the boat. We saw some hippos head off an attack from a croc.

After visiting 5 parks in Southern Africa, this was my favorite. Spent the morning on a "river" safari. We had a "birder" in our group and he thought he was in "heaven". He was able to identify more birds in this three hour river safari...More

Chobe is a must see and easily accessible from livingstone in Zambia. We saw buffalo, elephants, lions, warthogs, hippos, giraffes, baboons, and much more. The guides were excellent and the tour was top notch. Incredible safari experience!!!!!!!!

Great Reserve, beautiful setting. Lovely lion sightings and beautiful view points over the Chobe River. Only thing spoiling it was GP registration cars! Too many vehicles at sightings.

I truly think this is the greatest safari experience in Africa. The setting, the guides, the proliferation of flora and fauna are spectacular. The lodges range from budget (well may that's an oxymoron...they're all pricey) to extravagant. We chose the "mid-level" and they were quite...More
