Chobe National Park is Botswana's first and most biologically diverse national park. Known for it's large elephant populations (~50,000), it is also rich in birdlife, giraffe, buffalo and sable populations. I had the opportunity to spend the night in the bush, where that evening will be remembered as the most WILD night in my life. We went to sleep with the roaring of lions, trumpeting of elephants, and grunts of buffalo in the background, to be woken up at 3am with a large buffalo herd migrating through and all around our camp. Unforgettable! Our guide also toured us down the Chobe River and pointed out many different bird species. Part of his training was to learn the calls of over 300 birds.
