There is a relatively limited network of game drive tracks around the Chobe Riverfront, with off-road driving not permitted, so it is virtually guaranteed that you will see other vehicles on your drives. However, there is also little chance that you will leave Chobe dissatisfied by the volume of wildlife you have seen on game drives. Morning drives are excellent, as the bush slowly wakes up and wildlife emerges to face the day, often at its most active in these cooler hours.

Along the way there are frequent stops to view animals, learn about the flora and fauna from your guide, take photographs and enjoy refreshments. Most of the tracks cling closely to the riverbank, although some routes veer into the riverine woodland where some of the more nervous antelope hide away from the big predators. Dry season game viewing by the river is sensational, with vast herds of buffalo and playful elephants gathering at the water and curious lions speculatively watching the potential bounty. There is perhaps not the same diversity of species that you will see in the Delta and Linyanti areas, but the scale of some of these big game encounters is undeniably impressive.
