Chobe National Park
Arrive in Kasane and transfer to Chobe National Park, renowned for its massive herds of elephants. The Chobe River is popular with these magnificent creatures coming down to the water’s edge for a refreshing drink. If you’re lucky you might even see them swimming, using their trunks like a snorkel. Admire the gorgeous golden sunsets on an evening river cruise, then, once the sun is down, don’t forget to look up into the darkness at the millions of stars, unblemished by light pollution. Finally, set the alarm for your early-morning game drive, where you can hope to see buffalo and zebra, and if you are lucky you might hear the roar of a lion or two.
