  Itinerary

Day 1 - Livingstone / Kasane

We depart Livingstone at 8:00am and head for the border to Botswana, where after border formalities, we cross the Zambezi River by ferry, on our way to Kasane. Kasane is a pleasant town situated on the edge of the Chobe National Park and the Chobe River. This afternoon we begin exploring the National Park from the River on a scenic boat cruise. Elephant, hippo and many bird species including the regal African Fish Eagle and Pied Kingfisher can be viewed from the boat while we watch a glorious African sunset. (L / D) CAMPING. (Acommodation upgrades available.)
Day 2 - Makgadikgadi Pans. This morning we are greeted by the sound of the resident Hippos! After breakfast, we make our way south to the Makgadikgadi Pans (weather permitting) where we get our first glimpse of the semi-arid Mopane woodland scenery. The Makgadikgadi Pans are rumoured to be the largest salt pans in the world and present a rare sight of a completely flat, white, vegetation free area, surrounded by plant life only on its edges. (B / L / D) CAMPING

Day 3 - Maun

Today we travel to the Maun, the gateway to the Okavango Delta. The town has many shops, markets and modern facilities such as internet cafes. We spend the afternoon at leisure preparing for our trip into the Delta tomorrow. We camp at Sitatunga Camp (B / L / D) CAMPING. (Acommodation upgrades available.)

Day 4 - Okavango Delta

After an early breakfast we depart via 4x4 vehicles to the Delta Region. We drive to a mokoro (local dugout canoe) station where we meet our local polers who will escort us on today’s excursion. The Okavango Delta is a huge expanse of water that has travelled from the Kavango River from the Angolan highlands, and fans out onto the upper Kalahari region to form the largest inland Delta in the World. Studded with exotic islands, the Delta is renowned for its incredible variety of bird life as well as many other animals unique to Southern Africa. We explore the channels and waterways by traditional means in a mokoro – this is the local form of transport used to traverse the many waterways of the Delta. In the late afternoon we have the option to observe the Delta from above by taking part in an optional scenic flight before returning to Sitatunga Camp (B / L / D) CAMPING. (Acommodation upgrades available) Scenic flight options.

Days 5  – Moremi Game Reserve

Leaving Maun behind us, we board our safari vehicle and drive through traditional villages before entering the South Gate into what is undoubtedly one of the top wildlife destinations in Africa.   Moremi Game Reserve.  

Moremi forms part of the Okavango delta and consists of seasonal pans, forested areas, grass plains and permanent swamps and rivers that attract a multitude of wildlife and birds.   Moremi covers and area of 4870 square kilometers and has excellent game viewing.

 We game drive to our private camp site within the reserve in time for lunch.  After a safety briefing and quick afternoon nap, we head out in search of game.  The area is teeming with bird life and wildlife.  It is a prime wildlife area where elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion, and most other game (including eland, kudu, roan antelope, and if you're lucky even leopard) can be seen in abundance.   Moremi Game Reserve is one of the most unforgettable wildlife experiences in Africa!

 On your return to camp, there is time for a hot bush shower before we gather for our evening meal and then move to the campfire and shares stories of the day's adventures. Retreating to the comfort of your tent you can fall asleep listening to the sounds of the African Bush.  (B / L / D) CAMPING.

Days 6 & 7 - Moremi Game Reserve and Savuti Area of Chobe National Park

 The next few days follow on with a very similar routine.   A typical Safari day starts at sunrise, with Tea and Coffee and a light breakfast will be served around the campfire before we head out on an early morning game drive.   The best time of day to enjoy game viewing is early in the morning and late afternoon as most animals are active in the cooler parts of the day.   

Having spent the morning exploring the wilderness, we return to our camp for lunch, before a siesta or just relax with a book and the sounds of the wilderness.

Afternoon tea is served in the cool of the afternoon before you head out into the wilderness once more.  We spend the days game driving and watching water holes as the animals gather to quench their thirst and marvel at yet another African sunset.

On some days we will move camp and with your assistance the safari team will pack down the camp, before we move on to our next site.  When travelling to our next camp the journey is generally an extension of your daily game drives.  A picnic lunch can be shared on the way.   (B / L / D) CAMPING

Days 8 – Chobe National Park. Kasane.

Once through the Savuti area, we continue on into Chobe National Park, entering from the southern side and exploring the more remote inner section of the park.  Chobe is one of Botswana's premier game parks, renowned for its large elephant herds.

Continuing on, we arrive in Kasane in time for Lunch and can enjoy a good hot shower and relax by the campsites swimming pool.  (B / L / D) CAMPING. (Acommodation upgrades available.)

Days 9 – Livingstone This morning starts with an early morning game drive into Chobe National Park to explore the river front area by vehicle. We return in the late morning, and make our way back to Livingstone via the Kazangula Ferry. We have the late afternoon at leisure to relax along the banks of the Zambezi. (B / L) CAMPING.(Acommodation upgrades available.)
