Chobe National Park, in northeast Botswana, has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. By size, it is the third largest park of the country, after the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and is the most diverse. It is also the countries first national park.
The park can be divided up into 4 areas, each corresponding to one distinct ecosystem:
- Serondela area (or Chobe riverfront) situated in the extreme northeast of the park
- Savuti Marsh area situated in the western stretch of the park
- Linyanti Marsh area located in the northwest corner of the park
- Hinterland area situated between Linyanti Savuti Marsh
The park is probably best known for its spectacular Elephant population. It contains an estimated 120,000 Elephants, perhaps the highest Elephant concentration of Africa, and part of the largest continues surviving Elephant population.
