One of the best wildlife-watching destination in the world, Botswana's Chobe National Park offers an abundance of big game, diverse birdlife and a wide range of wildlife-watching activities by road and river. The Chobe River offers cooling waters for drinking and bathing in the heart of a typically very dry environment. Therefore, this water source is the main attraction for species such as antelope, wildebeest, kudu, puku, bushbuck, waterbuck and warthog. Above ground, you'll spot feathered friends such as fish eagles, wire-tailed swallows, colourful kingfishers and the endangered African skimmer.
