Crossing into Botswana, the Chobe National Park is known for its huge herds of elephant and Cape buffalo which come out of the northern Kalahari Desert to drink, creating remarkable wildlife spectacular. After Chobe, take a scenic flight over the Desert and the Okavango Delta to stay at Mma Dinare camp set in a private concession adjacent to Moremi Game reserve on the south-eastern side of the Delta.
