Gweta – Kasane
We make our way to Chobe National Park close by to the town of Kasane. In the afternoon, feel free to embark on a game drive through the Park, or perhaps an afternoon Chobe River Sunset Boat Cruise (50USD) where you will have the incredible chance to spot hippo, and crocodiles, and to observe the plenty elephants splashing in the water.
Chobe National Park is the first national park of Botswana and is located along the Chobe River. It contains one of the highest populations of game in all of Africa, and is one of the world’s last remaining large wilderness regions. In terms of size, the Chobe NP is the third biggest reserve in the country, sporting the most diverse and fantastic fauna and flora. The Park is most well-known for its magnificent elephant concentration, and with more than 120,000 of the species, the reserve has the biggest elephant population in the continent. Majority of these mammals are part of the biggest surviving elephant concentrations in the world. The numbers of elephant have risen dramatically since 1990, with Kalahari elephants inhabiting the Park (the biggest known elephant species). During the rainy seasons, the elephants embark on a 200 kilometre migration to the southeast area of the Park.
