2nd, 3rd, 4th June: Moremi

Contained within an area of approximately 3900 km 2 , here land and Delta meet to create an exceedingly picturesque preserve of floodplains – either seasonally or perennially wet, waterways, lagoons, pools, pans, grasslands and riparian, riverine and mophane forests.

This makes for spectacular game viewing and bird watching, including all major naturally occurring herbivore and carnivore species in the region, and over 400 species of birds, many migratory and some endangered. It is the only Game Reserve inside the World Heritage listed Okavango Delta.

5th, 6th, 7th June: Khwai Community Area

Here you will enjoy a tranquil 2  ½  hour mekoro (dugout canoe) trip whilst here probably early morning. Here we will get as much firewood as possible and load up our water and wood trailer. We have 8 nights before we will be able to purchase firewood again. Small bush TV’s.

The Khwai area of the Okavango lies along the northern boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve. This is an unfenced boundary allowing wildlife to move freely between the woodlands in the wet season when water is plentiful and back to permanent rivers and lagoons in the dry season. The Khwai area offers the same wildlife experience as the reserve with the added advantage of being a private concession which means the ability to do walking safaris and night drives.

8th, 9th June: Savuti

We travel another 3 or so hours North to Savuti, and stay at an exclusive operators site at the other end of the Marsh (which is dry) from everyone else, for 2 nights. This site is about an hours drive North of the office. We can be the first ones in the morning to access Maribou Pan (the only pumped waterhole for miles around) and the marsh.

The Savuti Channel in northern Botswana is a famous waterway in a thrilling state of flux. For a quarter of a century, the Savuti Channel was dry, creating wide-open grassland, home to both quantities and varieties of wildlife and a legendary predator’s enclave. In 2008, the waters returned, and abundant game has congregated and adapted in its wake. The Savute Channel once more became a deep, clear waterway harbouring hippo and aquatic life with myriad varieties of waterbirds. Wildlife, from plains game to a plethora of predators had to adapt to a new source of water and all the opportunities and menaces it brought with it.

Then in 2015 the Channel dried up again and it became a harsh place to visit in the dry season –there are only 2 pumped waterholes in a vast area. There is a site where ancient San rock art can be seen after a small but steep climb. It is humbling to see and puzzle over and causes one to marvel at the people who previously inhabited the area. A beautiful island of 13 Baobab trees is not so well known but makes a wonderful excursion and is a wonderful site to photograph
