Day 1: Chobe

When you arrive at Kasane Airport, you will be met by a guide from Chobe Game Lodge.  He will transfer you by road to your home for the next three nights in the Chobe National Park. Depending on your arrival time, lunch or an afternoon snack will be served. You’ll have time to relax, admire views of the Chobe River and enjoy a quick dip in the pool. Then it’s safari time! Climb aboard the open Land Rover and prepare for excitement. As well as the herds of elephants synonymous with Chobe, you can expect to see zebra, buffalo and giraffe and keep a look out for lion and leopard. You’ll be back for a yummy dinner.

Day 2 & 3: Chobe

The thrills continue over the next two days. The choice of activities is excellent, especially for families, and you’ll find yourselves enjoying not only game drives, but also boating on the river. Of course you can just relax by the pool and let the staff look after you – this is a holiday after all!

Day 4: On to the Okavango Delta

After breakfast you’ll be driven back to Kasane Airport to board a light aircraft to the Okavango Delta. Your next camp, Camp Okavango, is in the heart of this beautiful area.  You'll be met at the airstrip and it's a short drive to camp. Camp Okavango is surrounded by the beauty of the Okavango Delta. You’ll arrive at lunchtime and receive a warm welcome from the friendly staff. Fully refreshed, you’ll embark on an afternoon game walk in a tranquil area of the the delta, undisturbed by the sound of engines, it’s sure to be an afternoon to remember.

Day 5: Okavango Delta

Today presents another opportunity to explore either by mokoro (dug out canoe) or on foot. It really does give you a chance to get down to the nitty gritty of nature and discover some of the smaller critters that are a vital part of this eco-system. Your guides will be with you every step of the way, sharing their incredible wealth of knowledge on both the fauna and the flora of the region. It's educational without even realising it! This evening, enjoy a tasty meal before turning in and falling asleep to the tinkle of the tiny painted reed frogs.

Day 6: On to Moremi Game Reserve

You'll be fully into the swing of life on safari by now.  Today, after a morning excursion it's back to the airstrip for a short flight to Xakanaxa Airstrip in the Moremi Game Reserve. You'll be met by your guide and taken back to camp where you can settle in.  With game drives and motorised boat excursions your safari experience continues. Birding in this area is excellent, especially during the spring and summer months when the migrant species are present. 

Day 7 & 8: Explore Moremi

You have two full days to explore and enjoy the variety of wildlife that Moremi has to offer. Days usually start at sunrise with a cup of tea or coffee and a light breakfast before you head out to see what fresh tracks are out there to follow. You'll stop for a tea break along the way. On returning to camp, depending on the time, you'll have brunch or lunch and then it's siesta time (or pool time if you prefer). Afternoon tea is next on the agenda then you'll head out on another safari. Dinner is usually enjoyed under the stars before you turn in for a good night's sleep.

Day 9: Onward journey

After your final morning activity (time permitting) and breakfast it’s time to pack your bags and bid farewell to the camp staff as you’re homeward bound. Keep your eyes peeled on the way to the airstrip for some last minute wildlife sightings. You’ll be waved off at the airstrip by your guide and fly to Maun and pick up your onward travel arrangements.
