Now is the time for exploring Africa with AMA Waterways. Chobe National Park is in the northern part of beautiful Botswana and is home to Africa’s largest elephant population and one of the densest concentrations of wildlife in the world. Embark on a safari of Chobe National Park on the ZAMBEZI QUEEN.
An All-Day Safari
After a full day of exploring the park through the Chobe River, AmaWaterways takes guests along other parts of the park via open-top 4×4 vehicles (the open-tops offering a chance for optimal, unobstructed photographs).
Each method of safari will give you a distinctive perspective and all-around feel for the park. Naturally, driving through the park allows the safari to search a wider span and more easily follow game in motion. It also gives closer consideration to the flora and fauna. The park is so massive it is usually categorized into four subdivisions. The Serondola area of the park, also known as the Chobe Riverfront, is flush with a dense woodland of mahogany, teak and other hardwoods – along with the lush floodplains near the Chobe River.
Another fun feature of this trip is enjoying a delicious picnic-lunch served up under the trees. And you never know, perhaps a few small local guests may be seen nearby or overhead!
