    Chobe National Park. Boat cruises provide close encounters with riverine birds and animals. Look out for the elephants going for their morning drink and the herds of buffalo congregating along the fertile flood plains. Lion, leopard, African wild dog, puku, red lechwe, sable, giraffe and roan antelope are often seen. The Botswana wilderness is renowned for its unusual animal behavior, none more so than the pride of Lions in the Savute region of Chobe National Park that learned to kill adult Elephants. The Elephant-killing Lion pride is well documented on film and image but as yet there is no definitive explanation as to how the behavior came about.

    Situated in the busiest elephant corridor that joins the Chobe National Park and the Hwange National Park, Camp Kuzuma is a private and exclusive safari lodge situated in the pristine Kazuma Forest reserve in the Chobe region of Botswana. Visitors will have the chance to see an abundance of wildlife, including elephants and lions.   “The other elephants turned around to help, but by the time they arrived, more lions had come in and managed to injure the young elephant’s underbelly. The calf remained on his feet for about 40 minutes, but eventually it succumbed to its wounds. The two lions remained on the elephant.

    This well priced itinerary takes in two of Africa's most famous parks the Masai Mara and Amboseli. Witness the raw power of the Acacia studded Masai Mara and the famous wildebeest herds and then move onto the scenically stunning Amboseli National Park where giants roam and Kilimanjaro looms! This is definitely one of our favourite trips in Kenya. CAROL ATKINSONChobe National Park has a huge population of more t elephants. In the hour approaching sunset, vehicles from other lodges are forced to leave the national park as darkness approaches, and along with one other Chobe Under Canvas Land Cruiser we soon have the big cat cameo all to ourselves.

My experience at Chobe national park. Lions rarely prey on elephants. Botswana's Savuti lions, however, switch to preying on elephants during the late dry season (August-November), and the frequency of this has increased in the last two decades (–).

An opportunity to document this phenomenon was made possible with infrared viewing and filming equipment. A pride of 30 lions killed one elephant every three days. .To discover a lion pride feeding on an elephant carcass is to view the aftermath of one of Africa’s truly epic encounters. Northern Botswana’s Chobe Riverfront can feel like the perfect natural arena for fine wildlife encounters – the sandy bank that slopes down to the water’s edge, the vast expanse of water, the endless stream of ungulates drawing near to the water’s edge to drink.
