The Chobe and Okavango Delta in Botswana

The Chobe River, situated in the Chobe National Park, is known for the extremely large herds of elephants as well as a prolific variety of other wildlife and birdlife found along the riverbanks. The Chobe River hosts daily boat cruises and houseboat safaris, offering a different kind of game-viewing experience. The inland Okavango Delta is the most famous destination in Botswana, sought-after for the density of wildlife found here. Game-viewing can be conducted by boat cruises or specialized mokoro (dugout canoe) safaris, which this country is renowned for.

The Kazinga Channel and Murchison Falls in Uganda

The Kazinga Channel, a natural channel that connects Lake George and Lake Edward, has become a popular attraction due to its magnificent wildlife sightings. Be on the lookout for Nile crocodiles, hippos, monitor lizards, buffaloes, and elephants. There are about 60 species of birds that can be sighted during the boat cruise.
