Chobe Riverside

As a well-travelled Frommer’s guide writer to the region says, “Chobe is all about the river”. This is where the best, most varied sightings are, she says, and yes, it’s home to the densest concentrations of game. This is especially true in winter, when the lovely sapphire blue Chobe offers a ribbon of opportunity for game to come to drink deeply and cool off. Forest and floodplains line the Chobe River, and besides some semi-permanent pans further south in the park and the Linyanti River, there’s not much other water to be had in dry season. This then, is where the main action takes place. It is a magnet for elephant – sometimes they dot the floodplain for as far as they eye can see – and buffalo. Lucky guests cruising along the river can see lion on the banks, and rotund hippopotamuses slumber and wallow in the shallows. Every so often a slug of a croc will be seen, basking in the sun like all reptiles love to do. This is also virtually the only place in Botswana to find Puku antelope and the Chobe bushbuck.

The mighty Chobe river is a wildlife magnet - especially in the dry season when water is scarce

The Riverside is also close to the most accessible point of entry to the park, the town of Kasane, and is popular with families, couples and solo travellers alike. Lodges and accommodation are scattered along the Chobe River – most establishments are not within the boundaries of the park itself and a couple are even on the other side of the river, in neighbouring Namibia. There is also the option of a tented or mobile safari to consider: operators set up camp – some a lot more luxurious than you might expect – in a private space within the park, which means no rush for the gate on the early morning game drive. The Chobe River is also where the distinctive houseboats moor and where river safaris take place in slipper-shaped craft. This area (also sometimes called Serondela) is a megatick for birders year round. Author of Birds of Botswana, Peter Hancock, recommends the Kasane Rapids to keen birders. “This is the best place in Botswana to see African Finfoot, Half-collared Kingfisher and Rock Pratincole [which nest here]. It is also a good place to see Pel’s Fishing Owl. In addition, there is a large, active heronry at the rapids where significant numbers of Yellow-billed Storks nest annually.”

Highlights

A safari boat cruise. Few parks in Africa can offer this Chobe staple: languid safaris, safely afloat on the blue, blue river, getting crazy close to myriad herds and birds – and from a wonderful vantage point. A languid sunset cruise in one of the nimble river boats that ply the watercourse is a great contrast with rocking about the plains in a vehicle. It would be delicious even without sharing the space with big game. Yet elephant by the hundred can be seen during their social drinks hour, hosing themselves down, applying soothing mud to the skin, and interacting in endless fascinating ways. Crocs, buffalo, hippo and water birds such as spoonbills and kingfishers add to the show …

A sunset boat cruise along the Chobe is an ethereal African experience

Tiger-fishing The Chobe is home to over 90 fish species, but king of them all for anglers is the tigerfish, the fastest freshwater fish in Africa. This vigorous striped predator has an average weight of 10 to 12kg (the record, if there isn’t some fishy exaggeration going on, is a 70kg monster) and they like to fight back. The Chobe is also home to gigantic catfish, or barbel, bream and Zambezi yellow fish. Note: Most lodges practice catch and release.

Tiger fishing is a drawcard for avid anglers

Photographic safaris, another Chobe Riverside speciality: specially kitted-out safari boats for photographers. Photo boats come with swivel seats and arms upon which experts can mount their gear; some of the better outfits even provide the camera and lenses. Guides know both river and photo opportunities intimately and will share their tech knowledge, so snappers have freedom to concentrate on the shots. Dedicated photo trips that combine time on the plains (in a vehicle with bean bag mounts) can also be booked. Excellent for solo travellers and couples.

All things great and small besides umpteen wrinkly elephants, spotted hyena, impala, bushbuck, sable, wildebeest, kudu and giraffe can be seen. In 2017, Travel Africa magazine noted that there were 40 lion in four prides that hunted along the Chobe Riverside. Bird specials (some of which are summer migrants) include osprey, African skimmers and that leopard of the bird world, Pel’s fishing owl. Surprises may include water lilies in the river, the size of the ants, bushbabies in the trees and the eerie squeaks and whistles of Peter’s Epauletted Fruit Bat. Also, remarkable Great White Pelicans that “commute” almost daily from the Chobe River 300km south to feed fish to their chicks on Sua Pan. “Now that’s parental dedication!” says Birds of Botswana co-author Peter Hancock.

Houseboats Happiness is floating on the Chobe at night, the deck washed with starlight, hippos honking and hyenas whooping in the distance. There is a handful of houseboats to choose from. From these floating lodgings, river and game safaris can be arranged (game viewing can of course happen from the deck, but smaller boats will take you out specifically to go game-hunting). These are generally all-inclusive experiences, and popular with families and honeymooners. Meals are of good quality although check whether Halaal and Kosher requirements can be met. The itineraries are relaxed and tailor-made. As some of the craft operate from Namibian waters, there is some extra paperwork.

Good to Know

The kick-off point for most Chobe adventures is the growing town of Kasane, where warthogs cross the main street and residents have found elephant munching through their flowerbeds. Chobe is not fenced, all the better to allow natural migration routes and patterns to play out. Kasane is not the frontier town it once was; the gravel airstrip is now an international airport and you can get just about anything you might need. Most guests will fly here from Johannesburg, South Africa, or via Botswana’ capital city Gaborone, and it is perfectly possible to drive the 1,200km in an ordinary car, although not everyone would wish to. Just past Kasane the Chobe spills into the Zambezi, at the confluence of four countries: Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia. Its waters travel all the way from its original source in Angola, where it is called the Cuando River; it later becomes the Linyanti and then, at Ngoma, the Chobe. At this point it is a convoluted, wide channel, dotted with islands and swampy areas. A ferry crosses the Zambezi at Kazungula. Opposite Kasane is Impalila Island, Namibian territory, where David Livingstone once camped before pressing on to the Victoria Falls. It is possible for guests to walk through local villages to see an ancient baobab tree, alive when Romans still walked the Earth. While eastern Chobe Riverside’s proximity to town may not be a plus for everyone, it does add an extra layer of possibilities to a trip, good for families that need to break up the game-watching regime.

Practical Advice
  • Many lodges – the more luxurious offer private plunge pools and voluminous rooms – charge all-inclusive rates, as do mobile and guided safaris. This includes all meals and standard drinks, park fees, and a couple of activities a day such as guided game drives or cruises. This makes the total less alarming than it at first may seem.

  • There is only one permanent lodge in the park itself at Chobe Riverside (and some mobile outfits), so most game drives vehicles in this area travel to Sedudu Gate for access – and must leave by dark. Being in the park is an advantage as one can linger longer and be first on the scene at dawn.

  • Different lodges cater to different needs for families, couples seeking romance and solo travellers. Note that not all accept children and tots may not be allowed on game drives. Ask about child-friendly accommodations.

  • The area closest to Kasane gets super busy in high season. To try and manage high season congestion at opening time, officials at Sedudu Gate allow tour operators entry for the first hour, followed by day visitors. Guidebook writer and journalist Gill Staden says she “always stays at the western end of the Riverside. That end is quiet.” Gate times from 1 April to 30 September are 06h00 to 18h30; from 1 October to 31 March they open at 05h30 and close at 19h00.

  • The very sandy and slippery clay roads in the park require a 4x4 vehicle. Petrol is only available at Kasane – or Maun. Take a good map; ask about road conditions, and factor in much higher fuel consumption in deep sand says guidebook author and occasional guide Mike Main.

  • More adventurous overland, mobile safari participants and some self-drivers will camp. There is only one public camp site in this area, unfenced Ihaha (GPS: S 17 50. 19; E 24 52. 40). It has 10 sites (avoid the tempting #2 as baboons like to sleep in that shady tree) and simple ablutions with hot showers and flushing loos. These get booked up fast, especially during local school holidays. The DWNP has outsourced the campsite to Kwalate Safaris to run, +267 686-1448; kwalatesafari@gmail.com.

  • The old picnic site on the Chobe known as Serondela has since closed, but it is Botswana-based author Mike Main’s favourite spot in the park. “Not only is it very beautiful,” he says, “but it was here, in the 1930s, that the Susman brothers, foresters who had concessions in Western Zambia, cut timber and hauled it to the crest of the escarpment overlooking the Chobe River. It was loaded onto carts that ran on a wooden railway line down the riverbank.” Main’s African Adventurer’s Guide to Botswana is a useful resource for self-drivers.

  • Tiger fishing permits can be obtained from the Department of Wildlife & National Parks, Kasane, +267 625-0486.

  • Kasane International Airport (+267 625-0133) is the main transit point for Chobe National Park.

Summer - the rains continue. Spectacular cumulus thunderheads build up and explode, drenching the earth in water and sound. For all the energy of the storms, most are over in a couple of hours. Nogatsaa can simply be too wet to traverse at this time.

Autumn - March usually sees the last of the rains and the bush is verdant. A lovely time for those happy to enjoy the space, big skies and landscapes and prepared to spend a little more time on the move looking for good game sightings. Nogatsaa can simply be too wet to traverse at this time. Zebra could be migrating through Savuti at this time.

Chobe in April

Autumn - Zebra and Wildebeest begin their return migrations towards the permanent rivers as water sources and the bush begins to dry out. Savuti and Nogatsaa can see a migration of zebra in April and May. Low temperatures drop below 20°. The last summer bird migrants are on the wing, heading north again until the next rains. A good time to visit Savuti – and the central areas of the park if not too wet.

Chobe in May

Winter - Some say Botswana is the most beautiful country in Africa this month – and it’s still shoulder season, so specials can be found. Temperatures are definitely cooler in mornings and evenings, take layers. Kasane and the Chobe Riverside will be getting busier as high season approaches. Game of all kinds will start to be drawn to water sources and is easier to see, but it’s still a little early to guarantee enormous herds. Nogatsaa can see a mini-migration of zebra and…

Game of all kinds will start to be drawn to water sources and is easier to see, but it’s still a little early to guarantee enormous herds. Nogatsaa can see a mini-migration of zebra and wildebeest in April and May. Towards the end of the month, go tiger hunting – tigerfish that is, “18lb of pure fight”. This is when smaller fishes start moving back from the floodplains to the main river channels. Late May and June see feeding frenzies as tigerfish lie in wait.

Chobe in June

Winter - It’s cold at night and in the early mornings (temperatures can drop close to 0°) so take warm extra layers for game drives, but sunshine is almost guaranteed. It’s the start of high season, so you will be meeting other vehicles on the roads and sharing sightings, especially on the Chobe River. But what sightings!

Chobe is a serious treat for the senses

Winter - It’s cold at night and in the early mornings (temperatures can drop close to 0°) so take warm extra layers for game drives, but sunshine is almost guaranteed. It’s the start of high season, so you will be meeting other vehicles on the roads and sharing sightings, especially on the Chobe River. But what sightings! Day by day there will be more elephant, plus buffalo, crocs and much more. Savute will be dry now, but permanent boreholes attract thirsty animals and competition for the precious water makes for great sightings. Self-driving adventurers can tackle the park’s dirt roads, not always possible in wet season: this is a good time to drive to Nogatsaa, although game will be moving north. It’s also prime time for tiger fishing at the Riverside.

Chobe in July

Winter - The coldest month. Nights can get close to zero, although the days warm right up. The elephant extravaganza continues on the Chobe and Linyanti Rivers. Literally hundreds can be seen at the river at a time, as well as great herds of buffalo. It’s peak high season, which also means more park visitors – so if you want peace, it may be worth heading to the further reaches of the park or the private concessions of Linyanti and Selinda.

Chobe in August

Winter - It’s still cold enough to really need warm layers for early mornings and evenings. Wild dog puppy season! (The Linyanti concession areas are the best place to see them.) And the numbers of elephant at Chobe Riverside proves why Chobe is rated one of the best places in the world to admire the giants.

Chobe in September

Spring - It’s pretty hot by day now, with Kasane temperatures averaging about 30° Celcius. The first bird migrants return: yellow-billed kites and carmine bee-eaters are first back; woodland kingfishers come later. Botswana’s Independence Day is celebrated on 30 September.

Chobe in October

Spring - One of the hottest months in Chobe, with temperatures hitting about 35° to 40°. Elephants will soon start to disperse from the permanent rivers, after which things quieten down a bit in Chobe Riverside. Shoulder season rates kick in, but as there is likely to be little rain, this is still a good month for travellers who like it warm. Good fishing around Impalila Island. Hot nights are also good for sleep-outs and camping.

Summer - Weather is still mostly hot and clear (lows average 20°C; highs 33°C), but “Green Season” begins. The first rains settle the dust (wet, hot African soil smells better than just about anything else on earth). Acacia trees, baobab, sausage tree and apple leaf begin to flower and nutritious grass sprouts up soon after the first showers, triggering calving season.

November/December sees the beginning of the zebra migration: following ancient migration routes they head south from the Chobe River to enjoy the new grasses at Savuti Marsh and the Mababe Depression and will continue on to the pans further south; they return to the Chobe river area by May.

The historic baobabs are ancient trees that dot the landscape

Chobe in December

Summer - Humid, with rain. The wetter weather can bring cooler temperatures, so pack a jacket or jersey. The antelope baby boom peaks: by mid-month, most wildebeest, impala, tsessebe and warthog will have dropped their offspring. Good rains will have soaked the earth and termite alates (the ones with wings, often called flying ants) erupt from the ground, sparking bird feeding frenzies.
