Chobe National Park is a popular safari destination for Victoria Falls visitors.
To get to Botswana from Livingstone, Zambia you need to take bus to Kazungula Ferry, which will take you accross the Chobe river to Botswana. Safari usually consists of two parts, they first take you on a Chobe river cruise to see hippos and crocs and then a game viewing drive for the big five.
The ferry. This is the only place in the world where four countries meet at one point. The countries are Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana.

A leopard with a cub! You can’t see it in the picture but I saw it! It’s very rare to see leopards as they’re usually very shy, not to mention the one with a cub!
You can run but you cannot hide from a Zambian taxman. He’ll get you on land and water
On our way back to Livingstone we saw a small heard of rhinos and two armed rangers guarding them 24/7. This is good but not good enough as the rhinos are still getting methodically exterminated. The number of poached rhinos grows from year to year and in 2014 has reached a record number of 1020 in South Africa alone! Where is this world going…
