Chobe Savanna Lodge has arguably the best location in the Chobe region. Situated on a Namibian Caprivi peninsular overlooking the stunning Puku Flats of the Chobe National Park, the lodge has uninterrupted 270 degree views of the Chobe River.
Only accessible by boat on the Caprivi floodplain, Chobe Savanna Lodge normally closes for the months of April – July when the waters of the Chobe River make access to the lodge a challenge.
However, while the Zambezi confluence has risen to just below its normal level, the Chobe River is well below its usual volume measuring just over 2.8m lower than last year (Hydrological Services Namibia end of March 2012).
At this stage it’s hard to know why this year’s flood levels are so much lower. The Chobe, or Cuando water system, rises in the central plateau of Angola flowing southeast along the Zambian border. Some 10,000 years ago, the Cuando actually merged with the Okavango River and they flowed south to Lake Makgadikgadi. However, the land in that area was uplifted and as a consequence the Cuando now meets slightly higher ground and breaks up into many channels forming part of the Linyati swamps.
The Cuando then becomes the Linyati/Kwando and continues in its marshy channels across the neck of the Caprivi Strip of Namibia and then widens out as it approaches Chobe Savanna Lodge becoming the Chobe River continuing to form the border between Namibia and Botswana. It then continues east and then is then captured by the Zambezi.
The Chobe River is famous for game safari experiences by boat. Experiencing enormous herds of elephants coming to the water to drink during the day joined by a variety of other animals, bird species in excess of 450 and some of the best sunsets and scenery Africa has to offer!!
