We can tailor your safari with exceptional Botswana lodges and camps. Include up to three destinations or spend more nights at one or two destinations: Chobe National Park, Savute National Park and the Okavango Delta. A wildlife enthusiast’s dream, Chobe National Park is one of the top wilderness reserves in the world provides an opportunity to see massive herds of elephants drinking at the riverbank – best viewed from a mokoro! The pods of hippos are great to watch as well and you can expect to see some of the best sunsets in the world. From the striking Savute area to the beautiful Linyanti River, this vast landscape is waiting to be explored.
Day 1: Chobe National Park
Transfer from Kasane Airport to Chobe Under Canvas for 2 days. This fully serviced wilderness camp offers spacious East African style safari tent with comfortable beds, teak furniture, quaint bedside lamps and en suite bathroom including a flush loo.
Day 2: Chobe National Park
Morning and afternoon game drives in open 4×4 vehicles with guaranteed window seats and uninterrupted views offer the best opportunity to spot the Big Five. A boat cruise on the Zambezi River should reveal a myriad of wildlife drawn to the water to drink.
Day 3: Chobe National Park > Savute
Light aircraft flight to Savute. Spend two nights at Savute Under Canvas. Savute, a remote and wild corner of the Chobe National Park, is situated south of the Chobe River. The area’s main feature is the mysterious Savute Channel, which flows and dries up in a manner seemingly unrelated to the rainfall. Dry and arid for almost 30 years, animals in the area were sustained by artificial waterholes. With the Savute Channel having started flowing again in recent years, the region has undergone a startling transformation, reverting to its natural lush and marshy state. Large numbers of wildlife have been attracted to this rejuvenated wilderness haven.
Day 4: Savute Channel
At Savute Under Canvas your days are designed to thrill you with intimate wildlife experiences, and your nights to delight you with the romance of canvas under open African skies.
Day 5: Savute > Okavango Delta
Fly by light aircraft into the Okavango Delta, a maze of lagoons and waterways in the heart of the desert. Choose three nights at one of four luxury lodges or tented camp to enjoy a full experience in this wildlife-rich hotspot of Africa.
Days 6-7: Okavango Delta
Activities during these wonderful days include game drives in open 4×4 vehicles, mokoro (dug-out canoe) trips on the waterways, bush walks, bird watching, bush breakfasts and sundowners.
Day 8: Okavango Delta > Maun
Light aircraft flight to Maun to connect to your international flights.
