To the north-east of the Okavango Delta are the Chobe and Linyanti areas, embracing a variety of habitats, such as marshes, waterways, riverine forests, dry woodlands and grasslands, and sheltering diverse species of wildlife. Chobe National Parkis one of Africa’s biggest wilderness areas, spanning 12 000 square km and home to some of the biggest herds of elephant on earth. Here during the rainy season, tens of thousands of plains zebra share the marshes with wildebeest, tssessebe, giraffe and herds of buffalo. Adjacent to Chobe, the Linyantiarea offers opportunities to explore vast untouched wilderness areas off the beaten track.
Within the 125 000 hectare private Linyanti Concession bordering Chobe National Park’s western boundary are three small camps, DumaTau, Kings Pool and Savuti, which offer true wildness, remoteness and space. Visit here to view abundant herds of plains game, predators, and in the dry winter months, enormous herds of elephant. Chobe Chilwero is a wonderful base from which to explore the Chobe National Park itself with its huge elephant herds and scenic drives and boat cruises along the Chobe River.
