From Victoria Falls is possible to visit the nearby Botswana. Specifically Chobe National Park. An elephant walking in Chobe River Front. Chobe National Park in the north west region of Botswana is renowned for its high density of elephants. On a recent visit, I literally saw hundreds of elephants in just three days. They were swimming across the Chobe River at sunset, prodding their little ones forward on a march through the dry landscape, and casually stripping bark from whatever trees they had not yet destroyed. It is a remarkable national park at any time of year and not surprisingly, Botswana's most visited park. Besides elephants big and small, Chobe is home to all members of the Big 5, along with huge pods of hippo, crocodiles, kudu, lechwe, wild dogs, as well as over 450 species birds. The Chobe River offers wonderful opportunities to watch the sunset as hundreds of animals come down to the river banks for their sundowner. Chobe's proximity to the Victoria Falls and all its available activities, is another added bonus. Here's a brief guide to Chobe National Park, where to stay, what to do, and the best time to visit. Chobe National Park covers an area of 4200 miles and lies north of the Okavango Delta in the north west of Botswana. The Chobe River at the northern end of the park, marks the border between Botswana and Namibia's Caprivi Strip. Here's a detailed map from Botswana Tourism. Chobe is blessed with a variety of habitats ranging from highly fertile floodplains, grasslands and thickets bordering the Chobe River, mopane woodland, forests and scrub.
