13 Chobe NP Via Chobe NP and the famous Savuti swamps your trip continues straight through the wild bush into the direction of Moremi NP. This part of the trip is for the real adventures. The tracks can be quite sandy. Because of the sand the speed is very low. It is advised to drive this trip in the dry season (May-November). The campsites in Chobe and Moremi NP only have basic facilities and are not fenced in. An intense experience when it starts getting dark! Chobe NP leeuwenChobe NP Olifanten
