The Chobe River rises in the Angola from which it travels under it's Hambukushu name,Kwando. It becomes the Linyanti (named by the Subiya) as it reaches Botswana and finally becomes the Chobe at the border post of Ngoma. The Chobe runs along the northern border of Botswana, meeting the Zambezi and tumbling over the fault-line of Victoria Falls. Towards the end of it's journey, the river becomes a twisting, broad arm of water snaking its way through swampland. The Chobe National Park rests on its banks at this point and is home to a huge number of herbivores, especially elephant. The wide banks and sweet grass attract plains game of all sorts; of particular interest are the swamp antelope, red lechwe. The birdlife here too is extraordinary.
