DAY 1: KASANE

Arrive at Kasane International Airport from Johannesburg. You will be met at the Airport by a safari guide holding a sign board that reads “MARVELOUS MOBILE SAFARI”. You will then proceed to Chobe National Park, set up camp, do an afternoon game drive and overnight after dinner.

DAY 2: VICTORIA FALLS

Have an early breakfast in the morning, depart Chobe National Park and head to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe where you spend the day sight seeing and enjoying the safari and adventure activities that Victorial Falls has to offer. Kindly note that Victoria Falls has a lot to offer so some activities will be optional as they are not part of the itinerary, but can be done at your own cost.

You will return to Kasane late in the afternoon and head back to Chobe National Park where you will overnight at the same camp.

DAY 3: CHOBE NATIONAL PARK

Chobe National Park is mostly dominated by the Zimbabwe teak, which is very good for making furniture. On the way we will see lots of animals until we get to the Chobe enclave which incorporates five villages. We arrive at Chobe National Park around lunch. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served every day. After a siesta you will go for an afternoon game drive along the Chobe River where we will see big herds of buffalo, elephant, pods of hippos, and prides of lions. Chobe is a unique park because during dry season big herds of animals congregate along the river. You will see elephants swimming from one bank to the other, buffalos crossing to Sedudu Island. Get back from a beautiful game drive, freshen up and have dinner. Bedtime is determined by the last guest.

Wake up the next day, have quick breakfast before departing for a morning game drive which is longer. You will also have an opportunity to observe the animals from close up. Chobe also boasts two antelopes rarely encountered elsewhere in Botswana - the puku and the Chobe bushbuck. The puku, with their shaggy orange-brown coats and V-shaped horns, can be spotted grazing the floodplains. Always be on the lookout for predators, a repetitive whistle is used to warn fellow herd members. In contrast, the Chobe bushbuck is nocturnal and rarely forms groups of more than one pair. Rarely seen, this shy antelope, with its short, spiral horns relies on a sharp bark as an alarm call when threatened. Both the puku and the bushbuck have a number of predators to contend with; from lion, hyena and leopard, to African wild dog. Go back to the camping site after a beautiful drive, have lunch and then go for siesta. At 3:00pm you depart for a beautiful sunset boat cruise along the Chobe river at your own expense. You will come very close to crocodiles and pods of hippos from the boat. We may see lions from the boat, and big herds of buffalo and elephants. We get back to the camping area after sunset and dinner will be served at 8:00pm.

DAY 4: SAVUTI

Have breakfast and depart to Savuti which is part of Chobe National Park. It is called Savuti because a certain chief called Sauté used to live there with his tribe. Tawny eagles can be seen soaring in the sky as we go. The drive is very enjoyable as you will see lots of birds and animals on the way. The scenery is amazing and very African looking, with lots of umbrella thorn, acacia tortilis with giraffe feeding and many more including the most photographed bird, lilac breasted roller, a national bird of Botswana. You will not resist from taking a picture of it, it’s the most beautiful bird in Africa. We arrive in time for lunch; our exclusive camp will be set up and we will camp for one night. Depart for a game drive at 3:30pm, to the beautiful Savuti marsh where we will see vast herds of zebras and wildebeest and also have an opportunity to see pairs of kori bastards which are the heaviest flying birds. We get back to camp after sunset for a lovely dinner around the camp fire. Again the last guest determines bedtime.

DAY 5: MOREMI GAME RESERVE

Have breakfast and depart to Moremi Game Reserve. Moremi game reserve is widely considered as one of the finest wildlife reserves in Africa. It has a diversity of habitats combining acacia forests and mophane woodlands with floodplains and lagoons. Here we will be camping at an exclusive campsite. Our drives will take us to the park’s most beautiful areas such as Third Bridge, Bodumatau and Dead Tree Island. Game is plentiful in these areas. Sightings include elephant, buffalo, giraffe ,lion, hyena, jackal and many different antelopes including red lechwe and the shy sitatunga, a web-footed antelope perfectly adapted to life in the swamps .Wild dog, whose numbers are so rapidly dwindling elsewhere, are regularly sighted in the Moremi Game Reserve. We will camp for two nights.

3:30pm – tea and coffee and depart for a game drive. We will be back from the game drive after sunset. Get back to the camp after a lovely game drive and have dinner at 8:00pm.

DAY 6: MOREMI GAME RESERVE

An early morning wake up call for a shower and then tea or coffee with breakfast cereals and nibbles prepares one for the early morning game drive, leaving camp just after sunrise. The morning drive heads out for game viewing and will proceed through the beautiful scenery of this part of Moremi with a very good chance of viewing buffalo, antelopes and hippos. Come back to the camp for lunch and then have a siesta. After your siesta you will have high tea and resume your afternoon game drive. Come back to the camp before sunset, have a shower and dinner will be served around the camp fire.

DAY 7: OKAVANGO DELTA

Wake up to prepare your small luggage for the Mokoro Overnight Trip in the Delta. After breakfast we depart to the Okavango Delta, here you will meet your local mokoro (dug-out canoe) poler who will serve as your guide. This activity is conducted by local mokoro community guides but our chef and camp assistant come along as well. When we arrive the camp assistant will set up camp under a canopy of trees, we will have lunch, and then it’s time for a siesta. Tea and coffee will be served before you take a guided walk on the island. Traveling by mokoro is undeniably the best way to experience the Okavango Delta. You explore the waterways, and take nature walks where you have the opportunity to track game and get a closer-up feel of this unique environment. Here bird life is spectacular. On foot you are able to have a much more intense experience of the bush, particularly the flora and fauna that might go unnoticed. Guides are experienced in tracking animals and are able to point out interesting sightings of various types of wildlife.

DAY 8: MAKGADIKGADI PANS NATIONAL PARK

Depart for Makgadikgadi Pans National park via Maun immediately after breakfast. You will drive along the A3 road which interconnects Maun and Nata. Upon arrival at the entrance gate, clients will have a chance to do a game drive before they get to their full set campsite. Arrive at the camp site, freshen up and then lunch follows. After lunch you will go for a siesta. After siesta have high tea and then resume your afternoon game drive within the park. Come back before sunset, have a shower and then dinner will be served. Time for bed will be determined by the clients.

Makgadikgadi Pans National Park is one of the largest flat salt pans in the world. During the wet season (November to March), wildlife viewing is excellent, particularly when large herds of zebra and wildebeest begin their westward migration to the Boteti region. Species include gemsbok, eland and red hartebeest, as well as kudu, bushbuck, duiker, giraffe, springbok, steenbok, and even elephant, with all the accompanying predators, as well as the rare brown hyena. You will camp here for one night.

DAY 9: MAUN

After breakfast we transfer you to Maun airport to catch your international flight to Johannesburg.
