Chobe in July
Nights can get freezing, although the days warm right up. The elephant extravaganza continues on the Chobe and Linyanti Rivers.
Literally hundreds can be seen at the river at a time, as well as great herds of buffalo. It’s peak high season, which also means more park visitors – so if you want peace, it may be worth heading to the further reaches of the park or the private concessions of Linyanti and Selinda.
Linyanti’s prime game-watching window period is also the winter months, and the area is known for wild dogs. The dogs den this month, making these sought-after predators easier to find.
