A playground for elephant and hippo

Chobe, Botswana

The Chobe River is a drawcard for massive herds of elephant and wildlife best viewed from boat safaris or land-based game drives. Game numbers are higher during the dry season, which runs from May-October, when animals congregate along the river and on the many islands. Although game viewing is still good during the green season, the concentrations of games are lower, however the birding – with the return of many migrant specis to the Chobe area – is spectacular.

Why I love it:  
Chobe is alive with photographic possibility. There’s no way one can return from Chobe without something impressive or different captured in the viewfinder. I particularly enjoy Chobe around late October and November months, with the many migrant birds that flock to the area. Taking time to watch bird behaviour and capturing a bird in flight, catching an insect or showing off a mating dance, is very rewarding.
