1 AFRICAN ELEPHANT

Chobe boasts the largest con­cen­tra­tion of ele­phants in Africa and the world, with a pop­u­la­tion of ap­prox­i­mately 50,000. Dur­ing the dry sea­son these huge land mam­mals con­gre­gate in herds be­side the Chobe River­front. VERY LIKELY

2 AFRICAN LEOP­ARD

This elu­sive big cat is more ac­tive dur­ing the cooler hours, and there­fore is most likely to be seen in the early morn­ing and late af­ter­noon. Keep a close eye on the trees to see one loung­ing on a shaded branch. IF YOU’RE LUCKY

3 SAD­DLE-BILLED STORK

The sad­dle-billed stork is no­table for its black-and-white plumage and bright red beak. While on a wildlife cruise look out for it fish­ing along the river. Other bird species of in­ter­est in­clude the mala­chite king­fisher and fish ea­gle. LIKELY
