Airport transfer included: Maun Airport
You will stay in a dome tent during your safari in Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, Moremi Game Reserve, and Savuti. You will be facilitated with bedrolls, blankets, sheets, and shower.
Upon your arrival at Maun Airport you will be transferred to Makgadikgadi Pans. The camp is situated on the western bank of the Boteti River, north west of Khumaga Village, and about 140 kilometres southeast of Maun.
The eastern bank of the Boteti River forms the boundary of the Makgadikgadi National Park, which stretches away from the riverbank towards its interior of scrubland and mineral rich grasslands.
The Boteti River is the main outflow of the Okavango Delta. This area plays host to the spectacular zebra migrations. You will spend the night at a campsite in Makgadikgadi Pans National Park.
During these 2 days, you will peek out from under a lush green woodland canopy in the Xakanaxa, or third bridge area of Moremi Game Reserve, which is a truly hidden gem. This is the place where Okavango Delta meets the vast plains of the Kalahari Desert.
Mother Nature has created a sanctuary of Mopane forests, open grasslands, seasonal floodplains, and riverine habitats, resulting in one of the most magnificent and welcoming animal environments in all of Africa. You will spend the night at a campsite located inside Moremi Game Reserve.
During these two days you will explore Savuti area of the Chobe National Park famous for the fabled Stolen River. You will spend a night at a campsite inside Savuti.
After breakfast, you will drive back to Maun well in time for flights back home.
The Chobe national park covers about 11.700 square kilometers of the northern Kalahari, much of it impenetrable thorn bush growing on deep sand. It is famous for huge herds of elephant, buffalo, and large prides of lion. You can explore the river that flows both ways and for the mysterious, disappearing, and reappearing Savuti Channel.
The highlight to this area is Chobe’s animal migrations. These animals move in complex, ancient patterns determined by the rain and available food. This park is best explored using a mobile safari.
The great Makgadikgadi Pans that covers 10,000 square kilometers of the Kalahari are nothing but salt. Some are enormous: others are the size of a small duck-pond. Around these area are rolling grasslands and the occasional picturesque palm tree island. There are many special sights within the Kalahari. Magical places where you can pick up tools in the Stone Age, examine the world’s first paintings, or look around and see nothing but the earth’s curvature.
Then at other times you may see vast herds of animals following ancient migration routes, or drive over enormous open plains dotted with endless game. Around January to March, if the rains have well, the pans flood. When this happens, grasses spring to life, flamingos arrive to nest and a huge migration of zebra and wildebeest arrives. This is one of Africa’s great unpredictable wildlife spectacles.
Moremi is lush and varied- a patchwork of lagoons, shallow flooded pans, plains and forests. It is one of Africa’s finest areas for wildlife, with particularly high game densities. The animals found here are numerous and relaxed often allowing vehicles to approach closely. It protects the core of the Okavango Delta. The game reserve encompasses a large area of the Delta’s wetlands and the main dry peninsula that juts into the Delta, known as the Mophane Tongue.
Moremi game reserve got its name from Batawana in 1962 when they set aside a third of the Okavango Delta to protect it for the future.
It is well known as the stage upon which lion prides compete with hyena clans for food and territory. A remote area of the Chobe National Park, it has earned its international reputation for raw, dramatic game viewing thanks to its landscapes, abundant wildlife, and full cast predators. When accessed by air, the Chobe River and Okavango Delta wetlands are viewed clearly.
Its open woodlands provide habitat for large antelope and buffalo herds, preyed on by big cats and wild dogs, while permanent waterholes ensure elephants remain in Savuti all year. The banks of the Savuti are crowded with animals and birds.
During this safari, you will be served daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Bush Baby Calls will also provide you with bottled water and juice.
Please book your flight to arrive at Maun Airport (MUB). Transfer from and to the airport is included. Bush Baby Calls will pick you up from the airport.
