Initial investigations by authorities on both sides of the Botswana / Namibia Border suggest that an exceptionally large buffalo herd was grazing in Namibia when they stampeded into the Chobe river. 

The cause of the stampede is still uncertain and under investigation, however initial indications are that they were being chased by a pride of lions. It is estimated

that more than 400 animals drowned due to the massive movement of buffalo trampling, and falling from steep river banks.

Carcasses have largely been removed, most being harvested by community members who live along the river in Namibia.

This is not an unusual occurrence as mass drownings have occurred before in the Chobe River notably off Sedudu Island.
