Chobe National Park
The Chobe National Park is a National Park in Botswana. It was founded in 1967 as the country's first national park shortly after its independence. By extensions in the years 1980 and 1987, the park reached its current size of 10,566 km ². It is part of the planned transboundary protected area Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area.
The national park was named after the river Chobe, which forms the northern boundary of the park. The Chobe comes from Angola; he is called Cuando there. After the river is also named the Chobe District, where the park is located. Chobe is known for the huge elephant and kaffir buffalo herds and forms the southern part of the Puku range.
