Encountering African Elephants in Botswana

  • Linyanti & Chobe National Park.
  • The largest concentration of elephants on the planet!
  • Game driving, boating and walking safari.

Botswana’s Linyanti reserves (Kwando, Selinda and Linyanti) and Chobe National Park are home to the largest populations of elephant on Earth.

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.

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.

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.
