We were so excited about seeing the Masai Mara but the size was amazing (had seen it on t.v.)It just went for ever & so many species all in close contact, never did we imagine the thousands of Zebra, Wildebeest & Antelope species grazing together. The day we saw the Pride of Lions, Well that was the greatest, From the mature ones to the tiny cubs( no more than 3 weeks old) then as we followed them through the grass lands to a kill site where the female carried her Warthog between the vehicles, the Vultures & 2 Hienas arrived very soon afterwards.The weather was very similar to Australia & we enjoyed the cool mornings. We loved the Lodge, the building its self was ideal open & cool & beautifully designed for the climate. The setting beside the river was perfect , not only from the Dining room but from our accommodation with the balcony out the back over looking the river with crocodiles, Very large & small, monitor lizards, monkeys playing in the trees., a Hippo once ,Baboons storks & the mongoose in the under growth,( PERFECT). Shimba our guide was so good, he didn't mind us asking questions, could explain every thing we ask, & set up a lovely table in a place with a great view for our picnic the day we went to the Mara River to see the Animals crossing.Thank you Shimba. & Thanks to to the Folk in the Kitchen & the Waiters & waitress who served us delightful meals.

We dropped a star only because , having seen the migration in the Masai, Chobe doesn’t quite offer the huge game herds that can been seen on the savannah. However it is still beautiful and, apart from Cheatah we saw everything we wanted to.

Chobe national park is an incredible place that is not too busy and offers some incredible sunrise/sunsets on the backdrop of the Chobe river. It is not too busy with tourists once you are deep enough into the park. The abundance of wildlife is astonishing where you will almost never go more than 5-minutes without at least seeing a herd of Impalas and overall during my visit I saw popular animals such as hippos, crocodiles, lions, zebras, buffalo, giraffes and even on one occasion a leopard. During my visit in June, the temperature varied quite greatly, where during the day it was hot but at night and early morning it would also drop quite low and so packing warmer clothes is advised. However I don't recall seeing a cloud in the sky during my entire stay so it is always sunny during the day and starry at night.

Chobe is more of a longer stretch of land with more open spaces.

Spectacular national park with lots to see
Overall rating

We spent two nights and three days in Chobe national park. Our park ranger drivers were very knowledgeable about the wildlife in the park. They were very cooperative in allowing us sufficient time for taking pictures. The scenery was gorgeous, especially near the river. The accommodations and food were great. Overall our Chobe experience was amazing!

During my visit to Chobe national park, i stayed at Chobe Game Lodge, which was truly amazing: the staff was so attentive, everything was milimetrically planned and the only thing you have to worry about is training your eyes to spot the animals among those amazing landscapes.
the chobe river makes this park quite unique, with spectacular sunsets from the cruises, and also gives space to a lot of birds. On the other hand, chobe is the greatest elephant reserve i have ever seen.
Guides at chobe game lodge were really well trained, and it was specially remarkable how the lodge has invested in electric safari cars, which generate no pollution and, whats even better, make almost no noise and do not scare animals away.
Last but not least, food was 10/10 during my stay.
