Botswana Deluxe Camping

Experience Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta and various regions of Chobe National Park on this comfortable adventure safari where the different habitats of swamp, wetland, dry woodland and arid plains harbour a rich tapestry of wildlife. From hundreds of birds, to plains animals, predators and large herds of elephant our morning and evening game drives, walks and river trips provide ample chance for encounters with the best Botswana has to offer. The dry Savuti region in Chobe National Park is remote and off the main tourist trail. The river which was dry until 2010, is now flowing and supports large breeding herds of buffalo and elephant. By contrast, the riverine floodplains are always lush and green, supporting another realm of wildlife. Enjoy the ambience of a lingering African sunset, drift off to sleep with the chorus of the bush and be pampered by your ever-attentive crew for seven unforgettable days in Botswana. All the camp chores are taken care of - you just need to relax and make the most of the incredible wildlife opportunities presented.

ItineraryExpand
Day 1
Your guide will meet you at 07h30 at a pre-arranged meeting point in Maun. From Maun you will drive through to Moremi Game Reserve, one of the best wilderness areas of Botswana which covers swamp and dry areas. The next two days will be spent searching for the wide variety of wildlife and birds that this area is renowned for, while absorbing the sounds and beauty of this region. A mokoro excursion will take you along a channel of the Khwai River to view game from another perspective and to experience this tranquil mode of transport. Game drives in the early morning as the sun rises and in the late afternoon as the sun sets will be the norm. Camping will be in private designated campsites with ensuite bush ablutions on every tent.
Day 2
The Moremi Game Reserve covers much of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and combines permanent water with drier areas, giving rise to significant contrasts in habitat. The reserve was named after Chief Moremi of the BaTawana tribe, the local group of people who predominantly lived in this region. These bushmen people were allowed to stay in the area designated for the reserve, hence Moremi is designated as a Game Reserve and not a National Park. Wildlife habitat includes mopane woodland, acacia forests, floodplains and lagoons. Only about a third of the reserve is land, the rest being the waters of the Okavango Delta. It is home to nearly 500 species of bird (from water birds to forest dwellers) and a vast array of other wildlife including buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, jackal, impala, red lechwe and African wild dog. Our time here will provide plenty of opportunity for game viewing and also to enjoy the sounds (and stillness) of the delta. Camping in private designated campsites with ensuite bush ablutions on every tent.
Days 3-4
Chobe National Park, with its diverse and striking landscapes, will be your next destination. As you continue your search for wildlife, you will traverse the drier region of Savuti where bull elephants dot the plains. Savuti is very well known for its predators such as lion, cheetah and even African wild dog. The Savuti Channel has started flowing again after being dry for the last 30 years. The arrival of water is changing the landscape as well as accommodating different species which historically have not been able to survive in the rather arid plains of Savuti. This exciting event has allowed large breeding herds of elephant as well as buffalo to visit the area. Camping will be in private designated campsites with ensuite bush ablutions on every tent.
Days 5-6
You will then head northwards to the Chobe River where your game drives will meander along the banks of the river, followed by the call of the majestic African Fish Eagle. The Chobe River Floodplain is an amazing game viewing area where water attracts large herds of buffalo, elephant, zebra and other herbivores. Due to the proliferation of prey, predators are likely to be close at hand. Sun sets in this region are always spectacular and allow amazing photographic opportunities. While in Northern Chobe, you will participate in a cruise on the Chobe River. This experience allows you to get a closer look at the aquatic animals and birds not easily approached on safari. Camping will be in private designated campsites with en suite bush ablutions on every tent.
Day 7
The safari officially ends at 1200h on Day 7. We are happy to arrange post-tour accommodation, activities and transfers to Livingstone airport or lodges, Victoria Falls airport or lodges at an additional cost.
