Large herds of game are abundant in the Chobe National Park and they tend to make their way to the river and onto the islands to feast on the sweet grass. Puku and lechwe antelopes are common to see on the floodplains.
The park has the highest concentration of elephants in the world and the river is the best spot to watch these giants swim. Hippos and crocodiles like to bask in the sun next to the water along side giraffes and bufalloes. Birding is also excellent along the river with frequent sightings of African darters, fish eagles, kingfishers and other waders and water birds. The African skimmer is often seen, a rare species to see elsewhere.
