Itinerary

Chobe National Park

A sunrise game viewing boat cruise is enjoyed on the Chobe River. After breakfast we travel in our open sided 4x4 safari vehicles into the Chobe National Park. Our private campsite is located inside the park where we set up bush toilets and bush showers. Late afternoon we enjoy a game drive in the area in search of the many wild animals coming to and from the river to cool off. The sounds of the nocturnal animals can be heard while enjoying dinner around the campfire in our private campsite where we set up bush toilets and bush showers. Overnight: Serviced Camping

Savute region in the western area of the Chobe National Park, with its periodically flowing channel and abundance of elephants, lion and birdlife

Traversing the park we set up camp in the famous wildlife area of Savute. It constitutes the western stretch of the park. The Savute Marsh is the relic of a large inland lake whose water supply was cut a long time ago by tectonic movements. Nowadays the marsh is fed by the erratic Savute Channel, which dries up for long periods then curiously flows again, a consequence of tectonic activity in the area. We undertake afternoon and morning game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles in search of the animals inhabiting the area. The sounds of the nocturnal animals can be heard while enjoying dinner around the campfire in our private campsite where we set up bush toilets and bush showers. Overnight: Serviced Camping

Khwai Area of Moremi Wildlife Reserve

Packing up camp we exit Chobe and enter Moremi Game Reserve on a game drive. Moremi Game Reserve is one of the best wilderness areas of Botswana, and covers swamp and dry areas. This is a pure wilderness area of great beauty, with rich green vegetation, palm trees, teeming with birdlife and a vast population of wild animals. We enjoy early morning and late afternoon game drives exploring the reserve in open 4x4 safari vehicles. We will spend time searching for the wide variety of wildlife and birds that this area is renowned for while absorbing the sounds and beauty of this region. Our private campsite is located inside the park where we set up bush toilets and bush showers. Overnight: Serviced Camping.

To Maun

An early morning game drive takes us out of the Park to our lodge situated in the town of Maun.
