Accommodation

The camp will consist of a dining tent as well as dome tents with bedrolls with toilet and bucket shower cubicles to share. You will stay for two nights in Chobe National Park, two nights in Moremi Game Reserve, and two nights in Khwai. The minimum occupancy per campsite is one to two persons, with the average of eight persons.

Camping in the great outdoors is a truly an amazing experience but it does come with a few risks. Botswana is very lucky to have animals roam free with over 30% of Botswana’s landscape dedicated to wildlife and staying in these wild places is a true privilege. Due to this, it is recommended that you are extremely vigilant during your time in camp. You never know who will come to visit. Night time is particularly important, as your eyesight is not as well adapted to twilight as the furry friends.

  • Type of accommodation: Mobile tent

Additional information

It is highly recommended to invest in a good pair of binoculars. The Nikon Monarch 10 x 42 is great value. You will be spending many hours each day watching and photographing Botswana’s wildlife.

A decent DSLR is recommended with a wide-angle lens and a zoom lens. Wildlife viewing, birding, and photography require huge amounts of time and patience. Each morning, you will take a tea and coffee box for a mid-morning break served with biscuits or rusks.

Some days, you will carry a picnic lunch which is allowing you to stay out all day. Morning and evening light is most favored by photographers, however, Botswana’s beautiful light allows for photography, birding, and game viewing all day long.

You will get up early and start the morning pre-dawn to experience silhouettes and backlit scenarios from a photography perspective and it is also the time that the predators are most active. Evening sunsets are great opportunities for light and landscapes as well as predatory behavior.

Location

Chobe National Park

Famous for high concentration of Elephants, Chobe National Park covers almost 4.250 square miles (11000 square kilometers). It is situated about 80 kilometers from Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe and Zambia). Lions are seen fairly here. A variety of wildlife can be witnessed or seen here, including hippos, red lechwes, Chobe bushbucks, warthogs, and many more.

Moremi Game Reserve

Moremi Game Reserve covers much of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and combines permanent water with drier areas, which create some startling and unexpected contrasts. Some prominent geographical features of the reserve are Chief's Island and the Moremi Tongue.

In Moremi Game Reserve, one can experience excellent views of savannah game as well as bird-watching on the lagoons. There are also thickly wooded areas, which are home to the rare African wild dog and leopard. To the northeast lies the Chobe National Park which borders the Moremi Game Reserve.

Although just fewer than 5,000 square kilometers (1,900 square miles) in extent, it is a surprisingly diverse reserve, combining Mopani woodland and acacia forests, floodplains and lagoons. Only about 30% of the reserve is mainland, with the bulk being within the Okavango Delta itself.

The Moremi Game Reserve, although not one of the largest parks, presents insights and views even for the most experienced of travelers. It is home to nearly 500 species of bird (from water birds to forest dwellers), and a vast array of other species of wildlife, including buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, jackal, impala, and red lechwe.

African wild dog, Lycaon pictus, is resident and has been the subject of a project run in the area since 1989; thus this species is often seen wearing collars emplaced by researchers. The Moremi area contains one of the most significant extant habitat areas for the painted wolves of Africa (wild dogs).
