Chobe’s Mopane Woodlands

Whilst the Chobe National Park is best known for its eastern floodplains; the park comprises many different vegetation types.  These habitats to the south of the A33 transit road support diverse species not often seen on the floodplains including the shy roan antelope. 

Often overlooked these areas are vast, diverse, unspoiled and very rewarding for the intrepid traveler.  The Mopane woodlands here grow on clay rich ‘black cotton soils’ and support waterholes long into the dry season.
