Best time to visit Chobe National Park

Timing is of the essence when it comes to an extraordinary experience on safari in Chobe National Park, as the best time to visit would be from May to October, which is the dry season. Clear skies and low chances of rainfall promise to bring forth conditions best suited for gaining maximum exposure to wildlife, as animals will gather around lessening water sources for both plentiful and spectacular sightings. With much reduced vegetation and short grasses, it is very easy to spot the elusive lions and leopards against the dry landscape. Apart from that, the Chobe River, a life-line in the literal sense of the word for the inhabitants of the park, becomes the centre of activity of wildlife including large herds of elephants, buffaloes, and antelopes who water by its river and graze along its banks. This is the meaning that the cooler temperatures characteristic of this season shall make game drives and excursions in Chobe very comfortable for visitors, presenting the possibility to experience the splendor of its diverse ecosystems in full and to observe the raw beauty of nature.
