July 1st, 2nd and 3rd: Chobe

Pied Kingfisher-  Jane Bettenay

You’ll be collected from the airport (or hotel). Accommodation before the tour departs can be arranged for an extra cost

The first glimpse of the Chobe River is always breathtaking. The Chobe River is famous for its large herds of elephants and Cape Buffalo, which during the dry winter months converge upon the river to drink.

The river is host to a stunning array of animals and a 3-hour boat cruise is taken to take advantage of this. If lucky you will see Elephants swimming in close proximity to you, in addition to the normal pods of slumbering Hippo’s, Red Lechwe, Crocodile, Impala, Kudu, Puku (this is the only part of Botswana where they can be seen) and numerous other animals you can view. The site we stay in here is a completely undeveloped. Everything must be taken in; even water and nothing may be left behind, so it remains pristine. The site offers an untouched wilderness experience, within a few hundred metres from the Chobe River, you can watch stunning sunsets with a backdrop of elephants and buffalo a few minutes away from our tented camp.


July 4th, 5th and 6th: Savuti

Ulinda L:C at Savuti Bridge
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 congregated and adapted in its wake. The Savute Channel once more became a deep, clear waterway. 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.

In 2015 the Channel dried up again and once again wildlife is adapting to a harsh life without water. 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.


July 7th, 8th and 9th: Khwai, Okavango Delta

Baby Elephant Botswana Green Season
Khwai concession is a community-run private reserve adjacent to the Moremi Game Reserve, divided from it by the Khwai River. The river attracts high concentrations of thirsty wildlife. Away from the river and plains is thick mopane woodland dotted with pans that attract many animal species and where we often spot wild dog.

The Khwai Community is running this area and all fees paid here go into the local Community providing schools, scholarships, water pumps and more. We stay at Magotho in a site well spaced from others under the shade of immense Acacia Trees.
The game viewing is superb, as good as in Moremi, and in addition to the normal game drives we are allowed out of the vehicle (responsibly of course) and to drive off road at your guides discretion, great at Leopard sightings. You will enjoy a tranquil 2 ½ hour mekoro (dugout canoe) trip whilst here, very relaxing.

July 10th: Departure

After a final game drive & breakfast, we drop you at either Maun Airport or Maun Town for your onward travel.

This itinerary costs US$4050 per person for the 9 nights. This is inclusive of all accommodation and camping equipment, a professional driver/guide and staff, transport, national park fees, daily game drives, taxes, a roundtrip airport transfer and all meals and drinks.
