The highest concentrations and biggest herds can be seen in the dry season, from June through to November. It is not uncommon to see 500 elephant on a game drive in certain areas.
Chobe is a National Park – consequently it is far busier than the Linyanti’s private reserves. However, our favourite camp in Chobe, great-value Muchenje Lodge, is well tucked away from the crowds.
The Linyanti reserves offer a much more exclusive experience, plus off-road driving. We use all three regions here, but we have chosen Lagoon Camp and Kings Pool Camp as our middle- and top-end lodges – both are truly superb and located within seriously good reserves.
