Chobe NP

Huge concentrations of wildlife roam the banks of the Chobe River. We spend another night bush camping in the NP with honey badgers mischievously searching our pots and pans for leftovers after dinner.

But first we take a small boat along the river for a game drive with a difference. In an open area of river there must be a few hundred impala intermingled between over 100 elephants covering themselves in the dust and mud from the pools they have created along the waters edge. We leave the boat and eat our lunch just metres away from them - it doesn’t get any better than this!
