Travel to Botswana in the dry season and you will most certainly have your fill of spotting elephants. With the highest concentrations and biggest herds seen from June through to November, it is not uncommon to see 500 elephant on a game drive in certain areas. The two areas with Yellow Zebra suggest visiting is Chobe National Park and the Linyanti reserves.
Elephants in Chobe National Park
Chobe is a national park and can get quite busy during peak season. However, wherever you travel to in the park, you are bound to see substantial herds of elephant in the bush and along the river. Our favourite camp in Chobe, great-value Muchenje Lodge, is well tucked away from the crowds.
Elephants in the Linyanti Reserves
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.
