Chobe is one of the provinces in Northern Botswana bordering Zimbabwe in the east and Namibia & Zambia to the north. A larger area of Chobe is protected land for wildlife and as such Kasane, the capital of the district, serves as the residential area for the local communities. The first inhabitants of Chobe were the San Bushmen. Their rock paintings can still be found in the park. Other tribes joined them in the early 20th century.
The major attraction is the Chobe National Park. The Chobe River, which flows along the Northeast border of the Chobe National Park is a major watering spot, especially in the dry season for large breeding herds of elephants, giraffe, sable and cape buffalo. Birding is excellent here with large numbers of carmine bee eaters spotted in season.
The park is also close to the Victoria Falls. Elephants living here are Kalahari elephants, the largest in size of all known elephant populations.
