Chobe is divided into 4 distinctly different eco systems: Serondela with its lush plains and dense forests in the Chobe River area in the extreme north-east; the Savuti Marsh in the west about 50km north of Mababe gate; Linyanti Swamps in the north-west and the hot dry hinterland in between. The Elephant population is the major feature of Chobe, estimated at over 100 000.
