Botswana Adventure: 16 Days from $5,350

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Our Fully Serviced Camping Botswana Adventure invites you to sit back, relax and take in the amazing scenery of southern Africa while we take care of ALL of your chores! Unlike the majority of Overland companies that make guests work for their supper (cooking, cleaning, setting up camp), our Fully Serviced Camping Safaris are exactly that: fully serviced. You won’t have to lift a finger as we prepare your meals, secure your tent and make sure we don’t leave a mess.

Days 5 and 6: Khwai Area Of Moremi Wildlife Reserve

An early start takes us to Maun – the gateway to the Delta and Moremi Wildlife Reserve. We change vehicles to our open sided 4×4 vehicles and arrive at Moremi by lunchtime. After lunch we enter the park and travel to the Khwai area. 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 4×4 safari vehicles. Our private campsite is located inside the park where we set up bush toilets and bush showers.

After an early morning game drive we exit Moremi and travel back to Maun. The afternoon is free for a 1 hour scenic flight over the Okavango Delta (own expense).

Day 8: Okavango Delta/Maun

Today we enjoy a Mokoro excursion into the Okavango Delta. Depart Maun at 07h30 for a 1-2 hour road transfer, depending on water levels, to the mokoro boat station where we will be introduced to a mokoro poler who will be our boatman and guide throughout the excursion. We enjoy the Delta by mokoro and nature/game walks before our mid-afternoon road transfer back to Maun.

Days 9 and 10: Chobe River – Kasane

We continue through Botswana to Kasane and our camp is set up on the banks of the Chobe River. Chobe is famous for its beautiful scenery, magnificent sunsets and abundance of wildlife and birdlife. The following day sunset is enjoyed on a relaxing game viewing boat cruise on the Chobe River. Optional morning game drive in the Chobe National Park (own expense).

Days 11 and 12: Victoria Falls “Mosi-Oa-Tunya” – The Smoke That Thunders

Travelling South we make our way to the Tuli area of Botswana. The Tuli area is rich in archaeological heritage and beautiful San rock art sites have been discovered alongside numerous archaeological sites dating back from the Stone Age.

Scattered artefacts are still being discovered across the reserve. It is also a great game area that is unfenced as to preserve natural migratory patterns.

We camp on the banks of the Limpopo River. Day 14 we enjoy a guided morning game walk and a late afternoon/evening game drive.
