Livingstone – Kasane, Botswana
We travel a short distance to Botswana after leaving Livingstone to the town of Kasane – the gateway to Chobe National Park. The Chobe River, which flows along the northeast border of the park, is a major watering spot for big, breeding herds of elephants as well as families of giraffe, sable and cape buffalo. The puku antelope can only be seen in one place in Botswana, the flood plains. Here, birdlife also thrives. During flooding, spoonbills, ibis, various species of stork, duck and other waterfowl flock to this area. Today we partake in an afternoon game viewing cruise on the Chobe River, which is a fantastic way to spot hippo or elephant, and even sometimes buffalo, who all gather at the river’s edge to bathe and to drink.
