Days 1 & 2: Moremi Game Reserve & Okavango Delta

Spending our first two nights camping in the Xakanaxa / 3rd Bridge region, we explore the surrounding wilderness on game drives during the day. The Moremi Game Reserve forms part of the unique ecosystem called the Okavango Delta and Moremi covers up to one third of the Okavango.

Days 3, 4 & 5: Camping in the Khwai Community Area Bordering the Moremi Game Reserve

Following an early breakfast, we pack camp and continue our journey to Khwai. We spend the next three nights camping at a campsite in the community area, exploring the Khwai floodplains on game drives both during the day and at night. Here, you will also enjoy a 2½ hour Mekoro trip exploring the water ways of Khwai which is the most eastern reach of the Okavango river system. Exploring after dark with spotlights offers you a unique opportunity to experience some of the nocturnal animals that are rarely encountered during the day.

Days 6, 7 & 8: Camping at Savute within the Chobe National Park

We head further north en-route to Chobe National Park, were we spend the following three nights camping in a wilderness campsite in the Savute region, exploring the desert-like landscape of game drives.

Days 9 & 10: Camping at Chobe River front within the Chobe National Park

Leaving this parched landscape, we continue our journey north to the contrasting Chobe region of the park. We spend the last two nights camping in a wilderness campsite near the Chobe River, exploring the riverbanks and surrounding flood plains on game drives. Also enjoy an afternoon boat cruise on the Chobe River.

Day 11: Kasane

After breakfast and a short game drive, your safari ends in Kasane around 0900am.
