Day 1

Maun - Tour Starts

Maun - Tour Starts

Today, you will meet up with the group at the lodge in Maun at approximately 17h00. Since Maun’s founding in 1915 as the capital of the Batswana people, it has had a reputation as a hard-living "Wild West" town helping with the local cattle ranching and safari operations. The name "Maun" is derived from the San word "maung", which translates as "the place of short reeds".

Main Destination:
Maun (City, Botswana)
Accommodation:
Island Safari Lodge
  • Mid-range lodge located in or near Maun
Meals & Drinks:
  • Meals at own expense
  • Drinks not included

Day 2-3

Okavango Delta

Okavango Delta

We drive to the launch station in the Okavango Delta where we board our mokoros and head to our tented camp in the heart of the largest inland delta in the world. This amazing environment has large numbers of red lechwe, buffalo, elephant and birds, particularly kingfishers. One of the best experiences in the Okavango Delta is to be poled along reed-lined channels in a mokoro (dug-out canoe). Sit back and relax as the water gurgles gently under the mokoro while your skilled poler points out the fauna and flora. We spend 2 nights in the wilderness in a tented camp in the Okavango!

An essential part of your safari is some camping participation. From carrying your own bag to cleaning your window and packing the truck in the morning – it’s all part of your adventure. When everyone puts in a little effort, the trip will run smoothly. The tour leaders provide the meals and we ask that you help with the washing up (on rotation).

Main Destination:
Okavango Delta (Botswana)
Best Time To Visit July to October (Best wildlife viewing)
High Season July to October (Higher rates apply but not busy)

Day 4-7

Moremi Game Reserve

Moremi Game Reserve

We take an open 4 WD into Moremi Game Reserve for fantastic game viewing! Chief’s Island is the largest landmass within Moremi and was the Batswana tribe’s richest hunting ground before being declared a game reserve by the tribe. We spend 4 days on game drives watching the abundant wildlife including elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion and other game, both in Moremi Game Reserve and in private concession reserves surrounding the park.

For an extraordinary wildlife experience, we have a session in an underground hide. As the only water source in the area, wildlife is attracted to this waterhole, particularly the large bull elephants. You are so close to these magnificent creatures that you can hear them breathe!

On day 7, we return to Maun at midday and go to a restaurant for dinner (own expense).

Day 8

Makgadikgadi Pans

Makgadikgadi Pans

We have time for an optional game flight (own expense) over the Okavango before we head to Nata. The shimmering saltpans of Makgadikgadi appear as a glaring white, endless plain. When the rain comes, a dramatic change takes place as thousands of wildebeest and zebra migrate to the sweet nutritious grasslands and clouds of flamingo feed in its algae-rich waters. It is an area of low rainfall, so this spectacle only lasts a short while.

Please note: Due to high rainfall in the area over the last few years, there is water in the section of the pans we visit.

Main Destination:
Makgadikgadi Pans National Park (Botswana)
Best Time To Visit All year (Areas are best at different times)
High Season July to October (Higher rates apply but not busy)

Day 9-10

Chobe National Park

Chobe National Park

The Chobe River is a stunning feature of Botswana and will be the focus of our lodge stay. The Chobe River flows lazily along the Northern boundary of the Chobe National Park, attracting some of the largest herds of elephant in Africa. Go on an early morning 4 WD game drive in the Chobe National Park and an afternoon game-viewing “sundowner” cruise to see the mighty elephant herds return to the Chobe River to quench their thirst.

Chobe National Park (Botswana)
Best Time To Visit August to October (Best at the riverfront area)

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
