It has since dried up and left salt pans, which suppress growth of vegetation. Yet during the rain season the salt pans attract many species of birds and wildlife.

Clearly wildlife habitat is diverse in Botswana. From the delta to the Kalahari desert, the grasslands and savannas where grazers are mostly found. The Chobe National Park lies close to the confluence of the Chobe river and the Zambezi River, the fourth biggest in Africa. The park is 11 000 sq km and has the largest concentration of the African elephant, close to 205 000.

Overview

This 6 day Tour will take you through one of the best safari country in the World ,Botswana. The Chobe national park with an area of 11 700 sq km is home to huge herds of elephants and ape buffaloes alongside other grazers and browsers like kudus, giraffes, mountain zebras, impalas, bush pigs and many more. As usual, these also draw a lot of carnivores as well including lions, leopards, cheaters, and other cats. The food web would not leave out scavengers like vultures and hyenas. It’s the concentration of an animal kingdom, the most common ones found in Africa.

This extends into the Savuti Game reserve further into the wilderness as you navigate the Kalahari sandy roads. This together with the Moremi game reserves are sandwiched between the Chobe river and the Okavango river. Although dry naturally, the concentration of game here is high owing to the abundance of food and water in the Okavango delta and the Chobe river.
