Northeast Day 4d – Chobe Game Drive

ChobeGame01

Chobe became a game reserve in 1960 and it was in 1967 upgraded to be Botswanas first National Park. Today it is Botswanas second largest National Park and covers more than 10 000 sq km. It is divided into four parts. One of these is “Chobe River Front” that we had seen from the river and was now to see from the land side with a lot of animals…
