Wild Botswana

This quality safari features the most amazing and diverse wilderness areas in Botswana. Early morning and late afternoon game drives in open sided 4x4 safari vehicles allow us to get up close to the abundant wildlife. Covering both wetland and dry woodland environments, we have the opportunity to see all manner of mammals and predators with sightings of big cats and elephants, in addition to a host of other animals plus the large variety of bird life for which this region is famous. From gazing at the hippos, crocodiles, buffalo and birds on a relaxing Chobe River cruise, to soaking up the beautiful scenery and magical sunsets whilst the crew set up our private campsite, this memorable trip encompasses the prime highlights of Botswana's premier game reserves.

Day 1
As the group members arrive in the early afternoon, you will be met by your guide and transferred to their hotel. The afternoon is free, to relax and spend at your leisure. Overnight Cresta Maun Hotel or similar (Please note: dinner this evening is at your own expense).
Days 2-4
After breakfast we travel in our open sided 4x4 vehicles to the Khwai area of Moremi. 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.
Days 5-6
This morning we exit Moremi and enter Chobe National Park. Traversing the park we set up camp in the famous wildlife area of Savute, with its periodically flowing channel and abundance of elephants, lion and birdlife. 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
Day 7
Packing up camp, we continue through the park on game drive and set up camp inside the park. A late afternoon game drive is undertaken in the area. Our private campsite is located inside the park where we set up bush toilets and bush showers. Overnight: Serviced Camping
Day 8
An early morning game drive takes us to the exit of the park and to our lodge situated on the banks of the Chobe River. Chobe, with its diverse and striking landscapes, is the second largest in Botswana and is famous for its beautiful scenery, magnificent sunsets, abundance of wildlife and myriad of birdlife. The sunset is enjoyed on a relaxing game viewing boat cruise on the Chobe River. Overnight Chobe Safari Lodge or similar (Please note: Lunch is at your own expense).
Day 9
