Chobe National park is Botswana's first and most diverse national park. We entered the park on a little motor boat on the Chobe river which runs through the park. After about 3 hours of game viewing on the boat, we hopped on some open sided Land Cruisers to find more animals off the bank of the river. At one point, we drove into a lush valley right out of the opening sequence for the Lion King. Within our view, there were hundreds maybe thousands of animals roaming around and in the deep waters of the Chobe. Before we entered the park, our guide guaranteed elephants, most guides are reluctant to guarantee their clients seeing a particular animal, but in this case it was a safe bet. Chobe is known for its massive elephant population. In fact, it's turning into a bit of a problem. The land cannot support the current number of elephants. Many of the plants and trees that contain needed nutrients for the elephants are being depleted. The elephants are an amazing sight. Watching an entire heard swim across the river using their trunks as snorkels was one of the most memorable experiences of our trip.
