Chobe National Park on the northern boundary of the Chobe River, is home to an exciting variety of large mammals and over 450 bird species.
Chobe is renowned for having the highest concentration of elephants in Africa with truly impressive herds gathering during both the wet and dry season.
Chobe comprises four main areas: the Chobe river frontage, the central pans around Nogatsaa, the Linyanti wetlands and the famous Savuti region that includes the Mababe Depression.
In Livingstone you will visit the worldfamous Victoria Falls.
Kafue National Park extends to the west of the Kafue river, a landscape diverse in habitat and wildlife.
Miombo woodland and grass plains dominate the environment, sustaining large herds of buffalo and zebra, wildebeest,
sable and hartebeest. The river's blue-green waters are fringed by a narrow strip of lush forest, a riverine wonderland that is home to a superb array of birds - giant kingfisher, African darter and finfoot, purple crested loerie, stork, crane and fish eagle.
The river terraces and the marshlands beyond sustain herds of elegant red lechwe, an antelope species that was threatened with extinction but has now made a remarkable recovery.
The Batoka Gorge, downstream from Victoria Falls, well-known for white-water rafting, is a superior Zambezi wilderness, and the home of rare bird species such as the Taita Falcon.
The gorge is home to a plentiful variety of wildlife.
