Chobe National Park is unlike any other national park that you can tour in Africa. It is home to one of the largest concentrations of elephants on the continent, is at the epicenter of Botswana’s great zebra migration, and offers one of the wildest and most authentic safari experiences you will find anywhere. Whether you decide to take a boat safari in the Chobe Riverfront Region to see herds of elephants playing in the water amongst hippos and crocodiles or venture into the wild interior of the Savute Region to see the park’s dense population of apex predators hunt big game, a Chobe National Park safari will leave an imprint on your soul that will be with you for your lifetime. An African safari is truly one of the world’s most incredible travel adventures and Chobe National Park is one of Africa’s most amazing parks to have that experience.

Botswana Entrance Requirements – Passport, VISA, Customs, and Immunization Requirements for Visitors
If you are traveling to Botswana from outside of the country, you should be aware of the Botswana entrance requirements for visitors before you start planning your travel. If you do not meet the passport, VISA, or immunization requirements, you could be denied entry into Botswana. This is not something that I would wait until the last minute to take care of as you might not have enough time to sort out any issues at the last minute should you run into them.
Africa Travel Planning Part 2 – Putting Together an Itinerary
In the second part of my Africa travel planning guide, I am going to outline what our travel itinerary will look like for this trip and start to talk about the logistics of our travel. Instead of booking a comprehensive tour for this trip, we have decided to book most of the travel and accommodations on our own, then use smaller tours for the sights that we would like to see. This means a lot more work planning the travel for me, but it also means that we will see significant savings and have a lot more flexibility to do what we want to do on this trip. This is important because we have a lot that we would like to see and do, and only a few weeks in which to do it. In this guide, I will share my secrets for making sure that I have all of the logistics covered as well as how much we are saving by planning a majority of this trip on our own.

In this Africa travel planning series, I am going to share with you the process I will be using to plan my trip to visit the incredible countries of South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Botswana.

I plan to review with you the different options available to you when planning a trip to Africa, as well as explain why we have made the planning decisions that we have made.
