Chobe in August
It’s still cold enough to need warm layers for early mornings and evenings. It’s wild dog puppy season, and the Linyanti concession areas are the best place to see them. The number of elephants at Chobe Riverside proves why Chobe is rated one of the best places in the world to admire these giants.
It’s still high season, which means more park visitors and more elephants – so if you want peace, it may be worth paying extra and heading to the further reaches of the park or the private concessions of Linyanti. The Selinda Spillway may have enough water for mokoro paddling.
There’s a catfish run in the Kasai Channel, and it’s still a good time for tigers.
