The Chobe is of course famous for its elephant sightings and there is no shortage of these.
Watching elephants playing together in water really is a special site and will live with you forever.
Another big herd you will see are fellow members of the Big 5, the Buffalo. Huge herds of Buffalo graze and drink on the sides of the river.
Not a member of the Big Five but by no means less noble is the Sable of which you are also likely to see plenty.
You will not be short of safari photographic opportunity's so be sure to bring extra memory cards! The specially adapted tender boat is ideal to get those perfect shots.

For birders, you are in a for a treat. Warwick Tarboten, a renowned birder, has compiled a list of over 390 bird species that can be seen from the boats and if you include the birds that can be seen on land safaris in the surrounding area's it would be even higher.
