Chobe National Park FAQs

Is it safe to visit Chobe National Park?

Chobe National Park in particular, as well as the rest of Botswana, are both considered to be safe for tourists. According to the Global Peace Index Report of 2021, Botswana is the third safest African country to visit.

While flying from one lodge to the next is the most convenient and safest option, Botswana is also a popular and safe self-drive destination. Visitors staying in Kasane should check road conditions before traveling to Savuti or Linyanti.

Is a trip to Chobe National Park well worth it?

The answer is a resounding yes. Chobe is one of the best sites in Africa to watch wildlife year-round, but especially during the months of April to October when the animals gather along the riverfront. Chobe is home to the most elephants on the continent.

Should I worry about Malaria in Chobe?

In the late rainy season, from January to April, it is strongly suggested that visitors to Chobe take antimalarial medication.
