Today is the start of your 11 day safari with us. We will collect you in Kasane town and game drive you through Chobe National Park (River front) to your camp site. The park is the 2nd largest in Botswana (11,700km²) and named after the river Chobe that forms the northern boundary of the park. The Chobe River support one of the largest concentrations of elephant found in Africa and it is not uncommon to encounter herds in excess of a hundred. The elephants leave the river for the southern region of the park during the rainy season (December to March) at the time when food and water is freely available inland. Chobe is also famous for it’s huge herds of buffalo, the Chobe bushbuck, and for being the southern-most point where puku can be seen. The river serves as the main water source for the wildlife and birdlife in the area.


The next 3 days will be spent exploring the Chobe   river and its floodplains on game drives and one of the days a lunch boat cruise, which are the best ways to get the most out of this park.



Today the camp will be moving from Chobe to the Savuti area. It will be an early start for everyone as the camp staff have to set down camp, move and set it up again in Savuti. Staff will go ahead and do this. As for us we will game drive with a packed lunch and arrive in Savuti at the camp site on sunset & then relax by the bush TV (fire place) and discuss the next days movements.


The Savuti area is a prime game viewing destination and covers almost 5,000km² in the south west of the Chobe National Park. The area offers great game viewing at certain times of the year.  The Savuti Channel has a fascinating history of flooding and drying up independently of good rainy seasons and  flood levels elsewhere - a mystery that has intrigued geologists and other researchers for many years.


 The channel dried up in 1885 and started flowing again 1967 to 1982. Dry 1982 until 2009, where it flowed again for a few years. It is currently dry but is still a phenomenal place to visit with great game drives along the open chanels and grasslands.


The next days will be spent game driving around the Savuti area. Here we will get to see our first hills where some of them have San paintings. We will break it into a morning and afternoon game drive with a nice siesta in the middle. There are plenty of birds and animals to see in this area. This area is famous for its large bull elephants and lions but one must always keep an open mind and enjoy whatever we encounter.



Today we rise early, have a light breakfast and do another full day game drive with packed lunch while staff set down camp for us and move it to Khwai.


The Khwai area is part of the Okavango Delta and is separated from the Moremi Game Reserve by waters out of the delta, the Khwai river. This is the currency of life for all the animals in this area and due to the dry outer surrounding they are all drawn to the river. 


 The next 3 days will be spent in this area as the river and its seasonal floodplains are central to all drives where one can find abundant wildlife and bird species. Game activities include game drive, night drives and a great optional extra being a 3 hour Makoro trip, which is a wonderful way to investigate the waterways with your poler guide. * Please note the seasonal fluctuations and flow of the delta cannot be predicted and so please enquire if this activity is available for the time of year you are travelling.
