The meandering Chobe River has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. This is elephant country with vast herds migrating through Chobe and the adjacent Savuti and Linyanti marshes. During the dry season, the elephants are so numerous and thirsty that they provide an awesome spectacle for tourists as they converge on the river. Chobe is a relatively busy area, and at sunset, there can be up to 20 boats out on the water. The park is also very close to national roads, so there is a high concentration of vehicles. The best option for those wanting to escape the crowds is to visit out of season or to stay in some of the smaller, out of the way camps. It is a fantastic area, but a wilderness, it is not.
