The diverse wildlife offers an amazing opportunity to see some of Africa’s rarest animal species, including waterbucks, lechwes and pukus, as well as giraffes, impalas, warthogs and a wide range of monkeys and baboons. Predators, such as lions, leopards and hyenas, are also frequent visitors of the Chobe Game Reserve.
To get the fullest and richest experience during your visit, take the river cruise and observe the animal life and the stunning beauty of the reserve from a completely new perspective.

Apart from its diverse reptile and animal wildlife, Chobe’s Game Reserve is also known as Africa’s premier safari venues for bird watchers. With more than 460 bird species claiming the area as its natural habitat, the area is packed with common spices such as the Sacred ibis and the Egyptian geese, storks, Martial Eagles and the Fish eagles, as well as most members of the kingfisher family. During the rainy seasons, the Ngwenzumba Pans, located approximately 70 kilometers from the Chobe River, fill up with water and attract a diverse range of wildlife. The woodlands and grassland plains are a favorite breeding ground for Africa’s animals and birds, making the visit to the Chobe Game Reserve a fantastic and one-of-a-kind luxury safari experience.

The excellent birdlife feasts on the ubiquitous fish eagles. Тhe key to this African paradise’s unique and diverse flora and fauna is the unpredictable Savuti Channel, which flows from the Linyanti’s waterways and into the heart of the Chobe Game Reserve park, frequently flooding the Savuti Marsh.
