General Information

Chobe Safari ElephantsYou can tell people that the magnificent Chobe River sustains the largest population of African Elephants in the world.  You can talk about the phenomenal experience of being on a photography boat on the river and observing the frantic behaviour of a herd of elephants as they cross the river fifteen meters in front of you.  You can share the emotions you experience as you hold your breath while the little ones disappear sporadically under the water before their mothers and siblings lift them again and again to the surface.

You can describe the adrenalin rush of capturing images of hippos at eye-level or tell of the Pied Kingfisher hovering overhead before diving with astonishing accuracy to catch tiny fish for their chicks.

You can laugh out loud when describing the comical behaviour of a troop of Chacma Baboons as they cross the river from an island to the mainland.

Somehow your efforts to convey Chobe’s magic will always fall short of the real experience.

So, whenever people ask me to tell them about the wonders of Chobe, I always start with a little family story.  My wife Veronica used to say that one-day her ashes should be scattered over the Serengeti, but once she experienced the Chobe many years ago, she changed her mind and decided that Chobe should be her last resting place.

Photography on Chobe is a very intimate experience.  You tend to slow down and watch the dramas of nature unfold before your eyes.  However, it is not only a mammalian paradise.   The abundance of bird life will provide photographers of all levels with unbelievably exquisite photographic opportunities.


  • World’s largest concentration of Elephants
  • Elephant and Buffalo crossings from June onwards when the water level starts to drop
  • From September Inter-Africa and European birds arrive to breed
  • Exceptional bird photography yearly from March to November
  • Rest of the year is good for mammal and reptile photography as they concentrate around the water
  • There is no bad time to visit the Chobe.
