A boat trip on the Chobe River on a winter morning

In the vicinity of the Chobe River Camp the reeds and papyrus as well as the tall trees which characterise the banks of the other rivers on Namibia’s north-eastern border are absent. On Botswana’s side the Chobe River is lined by a range of hills with numerous large trees and an abundance of animals.

Our guide, Nelson Sabata, not only has a keen eye for antelope and crocodiles, but also for the countless bird species which dwell on the open grassy spaces well-camouflaged and at times motionless.

Pratincoles are easily detected on the dark ground. Jacanas, sometimes called Jesus birds, are foraging for food on the banks. Several stork species, like the Yellow-billed Stork and the Saddle-billed Stork, are resting on the riverbank.

At the end of July, during a boat trip in the morning, a total of 31 wetland bird species were counted along the Chobe River and within two days altogeth 97 bird species in and around Chobe River Camp. Only a few migratory birds were seen because at that time of the year most of them still linger in the northern hemisphere. 

For more information on the wetland bird count on the Chobe River please have a look at Namibia Outdoor.
