Zambezi River, Kazungula, Chobe National Park
puretravel (en) Feb 09, 2011
The massive Zambezi is the fourth largest river in the entire African continent and makes its way to flow into the Indian Ocean. It flows along many different countries such as Zambia, Angola, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique. An interesting fact is that it flows into Zimbabwe two separate times along its course. This is a great place for Botswana Safaris due to the size of the river, but also due to its location in proximity to the legendary Victoria Falls. Hippopotamus, heron, pelican, zebras, giraffes, and African fish Eagles are some of the great animals that can be spotted here.
Another great Botswana Safaris spot to travel to is Kazungula. This is located on the banks of the Zambezi River. One great fact about this area is that a popular means of travel known as the Kazungula Ferry allows travel between two spots around 400 kilometers wide. This is one of the biggest ferries in the entire area. Sadly, a bridge is going to be created to replace it to due to the difficulty of keeping up with a ferry on a river as powerful as the Zambezi. This is one of the largest points of trade in the area.
One of the best places to visit in Botswana is the Chobe National Park. This is only one of the great areas that the wildlife is allowed to roam free under protection in Africa, but it is popular. This is also the third largest park in the entire country, only smaller than the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and Gemsbok National Park. This was the first national park in the country, and therefore is the most diverse. One of the best things about the Chobe National Park is the large concentration of elephant families that reside there. These draw attention from all over the continent.
