The Land of the Elephants at Chobe Safari Lodge

Aptly known as ‘The Land of the Giants’, elephants are abundant and rule the wilderness in Botswana’s Chobe National Park. While guests at Chobe Safari Lodge and Chobe Bush Lodge have little trouble spotting  these majestic elephants on a normal day, the recent hot, summer days have made for some magnificent sightings at the waterholes.

Elephants love for water

Elephants and water go together like Timone and Pumba. It is no secret that elephants love water, but the real question is why?

Turns out, the refreshing dips not only cool the gentle giants off during the scorching hot days, but swimming also helps ease joint pains. Most of the time, however, these water babies are just enjoying themselves in the water! ‘Wrestling’ with other family members, diving under and using their trunks as snorkels – sometimes ellies just want to have fun!

Elephants at Chobe River

Elephants frequently visit the Chobe River to enjoy the plentiful water – drinking, bathing and playing in it. The sounds of joyful trumpets and delightful squeals of baby ellies fill the air when they are splashing around.

This is Chobe recently shared their excitement on Instagram about their splashing friends.

In the heart of all the elephant action

Chobe Safari Lodge is located in the heart of all this ellie action as it is situated in Kasane, on the banks of the Chobe River. Sharing a border with Chobe National Park, it’s the perfect paradise to spot Chobe’s elephants in their natural environment. Guests can often spot elephants from a boat on a river cruise, or on game drive, or even from the deck at Chobe Safari Lodge.

Under One Botswana sky received some great pictures from our Magic of Botswana Photo Contest capturing these magical elephant moments.
