Notes on the Chobe river, South Central Africa


  • B.F. Bradshaw


The accompanying map of the Chobe river is taken for about 40 miles up from its mouth, and drawn from memory, as I had no instruments with me, and went into that part of the country more with the intention of hunting and obtaining natural history specimens, than making geographical explorations; but having travelled more or less for the last six years either along the bank of the river or in a boat, its peculiar course naturally made a very great impression upon me, more especially as I have been living at nine different places along its course, for periods varying from two weeks to more than four months. The portions of the river not coloured I have not visited, but I think the supposed course marked to be about the correct one.
