A wilderness campsite in Chobe National Park will be your accommodation on the fifth and sixth nights.

The accommodation will be camping in en-suite safari tents on a shared basis i.e. two people per tent. Therefore bedding (i.e. bedrolls-mattresses, pillows, sheets, duvet, blankets, etc.) and all the necessary camping equipment (i.e. shower buckets, bush toilets, etc.) will be provided.

Program

This safari officially starts in Maun and is intended to depart early in the morning on the day of departure. It is therefore important that you plan to arrive in Maun the day before the safari starts. A professional guide and / or a representative of Moonstroll Vantage Expeditions will meet you upon your arrival at Maun Airport (MUB).

Day 1: Arrival in Maun and transfer to your lodge / guesthouse

Arrival and pick up at Maun Airport (MUB). This is followed by a road transfer to a lodge / guesthouse where you will spend the night before the start of your safari. Freshen up and settle in. The afternoon is left for you to spend at leisure, to go shopping, and if you wish to take a scenic flight over the Okavango Delta (at an extra cost).

  • Accommodation: lodge / guesthouse
  • Meals and drinks: dinner

Day 2: Leaving Maun for the Okavango Delta (Mokoro)

You will be met by your professional guide early in the morning at your lodge. A short pre-safari briefing follows before you depart Maun for the southern tip of the Okavango Delta. Enjoy an early morning breakfast of coffee / tea, juice, cereals, rusks, fruits, etc. by the riverside upon arrival at the mokoro station.

After breakfast, you will meet up with experienced mokoro polers to board the mokoros. Spend the next few hours watching a variety of aquatic birdlife as you are silently poled along the waterways of the Okavango Delta to one of the islands selected by your poler. From this island, you will set off on foot and go for a one to a one-hour guided safari walk. It is possible to spot game such as elephants, hippos, zebras, etc., during these safari walks.

Having immersed yourself in the spirit of African adventure, your mokoro safari wraps up. You will silently be poled along this watery wonderland back to the mokoro station for a pick up by your safari guide. Thereafter, you head to Moremi / Khwai Concession for a two-night stay at a wilderness campsite.

  • Accommodation: camping
  • Campsite: wilderness campsite
  • Meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 3: Exploring Moremi Game Reserve

Throughout your two-night stay, each day will follow a similar routine; rise just before daybreak for a light breakfast and set off at dawn to discover what promise Moremi holds for the new day. Moremi boasts diverse ecosystems ranging from floodplains, waterways, lagoons, grasslands, and mopane woodlands.

In the mopane scrub, look out for large herds of African elephants, in the waterways for pods of a hippopotamus, while on the open plains you should keep an eye for large herds of the Cape buffalo. You should also look out for predators like lions as well as the raptors such as the mighty martial eagle, the majestic African fish eagle and that incredible aviator, the Bateleur, and many others. Set off once again in the afternoon for more birding and game viewing. Return to camp just after sunset to have a shower and thereafter enjoy a campfire cooked dinner.

Day 4: Leaving for Savuti (Chobe)

Wake up early morning for a light breakfast and set off with your guide for a final two-hour morning game drive inside Moremi Game Reserve. Return to camp at around 08:30 for a fully-cooked brunch.

Shortly after brunch, take a slow game drive through Moremi Game Reserve and head northeast towards Savuti for a one-night stay. You will pass through areas such as “Dead Tree Island” and the magnificent “Dombo Hippo Pools” and stop to enjoy the scenery and antics of the resident hippopotamus.

Savuti is best known for its predators especially lion, cheetah, and hyena. You will search for Savuti’s resident wildlife by undertaking early morning and late afternoon game drives to survey the wide-open grasslands and captivating scenery of the Savuti region.

Another point of interest in Savuti is the Bushman rock paintings, thought to be well over a thousand years old. These are paintings of giraffe, elephant, and eland. If time permits, you will pay these rock paintings a visit.

In the afternoon you will head out again for your afternoon game drive and return to camp just after sunset. Dinner follows before you turn for the night to rest or as you hold some discussions about events of the day around the campfire.

The Chobe National Park encompasses floodplains, swamps, and woodlands, and thus supports a diversity and concentration of wildlife unparalleled anywhere else in the country.

Each day in Chobe will follow a similar pattern; rise just before daybreak for a light breakfast and set off at dawn to discover what promise Chobe National Park holds for the new day.

Day 6: Exploring Chobe National Park and boating

A wake-up call early in the morning and you freshen up with some hot water in the face basin. This is followed by a light breakfast of some coffee, tea, rusks, cereals, bread, etc. Thereafter head into Chobe National Park for your morning game drive. In addition to the riverfront, you will also explore different sections of this wildlife reserve.

Chobe is one of the best places to see and photograph roan and sable antelopes. In the dry season, breeding herds of African elephant seem to be around every corner. On the other hand, the massive herds of African buffalo that inhabit Chobe are constantly flanked by the ever-hungry lions of the Chobe. Puku antelope occurs nowhere else in southern Africa, but only on the Chobe floodplains.

The highlight today is a boat cruise on the Chobe River. This boat cruise gives you the chance to experience the animals of Chobe National Park from another vantage point. Therefore, you might get up close and personal with hippos, crocodiles, and a mind-boggling array of water birds.

  • Campsite: wilderness campsite

Day 7: Departure

Location

The safari is Botswana-based and will take you to Moremi Game Reserve and Okavango Delta, in one of the most diverse and game-rich sections of the delta which will accord you the possibility of spotting the otherwise elusive leopard. You will also visit Savuti which has developed a reputation for being one of the world’s premier predator viewing areas and Chobe with its legendary elephant population. This safari starts in Maun and ends in Chobe.

Maun

Maun, Botswana’s tourism capital, lies on the southern fringes of the Okavango Delta. Snaking its way through Maun, the Thamalakane River welcomes you as it sets the scene and creates the mood of what lies ahead of your safari trip into Botswana’s pristine wildlife destinations.

Moremi Game Reserve

Contained within an area of approximately 3900 square kilometers, Moremi boasts of diverse ecosystems ranging from floodplains, waterways, lagoons, pools, pans, grasslands, and riparian forests, riverine to mopane woodland. This diversity makes Moremi one of the prime game viewing and bird watching areas of the world.

Savuti

Savuti is best known for its predators, especially lion, cheetah, and hyena. One of its greatest mysteries is the Savuti channel which has over the past hundred years inexplicably dried up and recommenced its flow several times.

When the Savuti Channel is flowing, it will carry water away from the Linyanti River and then release it into a vast swampland called the Savuti Marsh, made up of the rolling savannah. This will attract many different species of antelope, zebra, wildebeest, et cetera which will, in turn, attract many predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena and wild dogs.

Chobe National Park

The Chobe National Park, covering approximately 11,900 square kilometers encompassing floodplains, swamps, and woodland, supports a diversity and concentration of wildlife unparalleled anywhere else in the country. Thus, Chobe National Park is an essential wildlife destination while on a safari in Botswana.
