Recommended Vegan friendly Restaurant Chobe Safari Lodge Restaurant
Place to stay Chobe Marine Lodge
Best time to visit For the biggest volumes of game July-October is a perfect time to visit. October is the driest month and sees large congregations of animals but it is also very hot. For experiencing birdlife, December to March is good time to visit. Chobe is quieter (people numbers) in December – March which would give you more private game viewing. Once it gets to the busier high season (July-October) then vehicle numbers increase. A lot of the newborns appear November/December time. Thee bush is a lot greener and the cloud formations with the rains (December-March) can make for some great photography.
