Botswana Explorer

Explore the great wilderness areas of Botswana at an affordable price, by combining flights and overland drives, with simple but comfortable mobile safari camps… and one incredible splurge at a luxurious permanent tented camp. Visit the wandering waterways of the renowned Okavango Delta, and two very different regions inside Chobe National Park, home to abundant wildlife, including a large population of elephants.  Enjoy game drives, bush walks, boat trips and leisurely rides in mekoros (dug-out canoes). Your final night is spent in the other extreme of accommodations, with private plunge pools, bathtubs and four-poster beds, within sight of the enormous cloud of spray that emanates from the mighty Victoria Falls, one of the world’s greatest wildlife spectacles.  End your stay with a visit to the Falls and a memorable close-encounter with elephants at a nearby sanctuary. 

 

 

 

 

ITINERARY

This safari commences at Maun International Airport in Botswana and ends at Victoria Falls International Airport in Zimbabwe.

Day 1 & 2: Okavango Delta
Upon arrival at Maun International Airport you will be met by a representative from our team, who will direct you to your light aircraft flight to Nxabega Airstrip, where a safari vehicle will be waiting to take you to the campsite. Tucked under massive trees, this campsite is situated in an area with a number of permanent river channels. Explore the crystal-clear channels, islands and waterways by mekoro (dug-out canoe), and enjoy game-viewing walks on the islands. Spend two nights at our campsite in a private concession area bordering the Moremi Wildlife Reserve where camp staff will cater to your needs. Awaken each morning to a chorus of birds or the chattering of monkeys and linger in the comfort of your fully sized bed as you listen to the sounds of your hot bucket shower bring filled with steaming hot water. 
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight: Mobile Campsite 

Day 3 & 4: Moremi Wildlife Reserve
A short flight in a light aircraft takes you to Khwai in the Moremi Game Reserve. Covering approximately a third of the Okavango Delta, the Moremi combines permanent waterways with drier areas, creating a reserve filled with unexpected contrasts and diverse wildlife. Its riverine forests, tall mopane woodlands and spreading floodplains fringed with majestic palms make it one of Africa’s most scenic wildlife areas.

The combination of habitats makes Moremi the ideal place for your expedition to combine typical savanna game viewing with leisurely cruises along lagoons and channels, and rich bird watching. Spend two nights camping in the Reserve, with extensive and interpretive game-drives taking up your days.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 & 6: Chobe National Park – Savute
A long game drive (5 - 6 hours) takes you to Savute in the Chobe National Park, where you will spend two nights camping in an area renowned for thrilling sightings of lion and other predator.

With the enigmatic Savute Channel now once again bringing water to the region after a drought of nearly 30 years, Savute has been transformed. Large areas of marshland have formed along the channel, attracting a wide range of resident game and the accompanying predator species.
