BOTSWANA CAMPING SAFARI
A 14 day small group, participation camping tour. Safari through the wilderness of Botswana: experience the Okavango Delta by traditional dug-outs and the abundant wildlife of Moremi Game Reserve and Savuti; explore Chobe National Park by boat and end your adveture with the sensational views of Victoria Falls!
Day 1 JOHANNESBURG to KHAMA RHINO SANCTUARY (camping)
The tour departs from Johannesburg at 06:30, heading north into Botswana. We pass Serowe on our way to the Khama Rhino Sanctuary, a beautiful 4300 hectare reserve situated on the Kalahari sandveld. The reserve has several natural waterholes and provides prime habitat for white rhino, zebra and wildebeest. The tour’s first game drive takes place around the open grassland of Malema and Serwe Pans.
Included meals: lunch and dinner
Day 2 MAUN (camping)
The tour makes its way through the Kalahari to Maun, the gateway to the Okavango Delta. Situated on the banks of the Thamalakane River, Maun is a vibrant frontier town. We prepare here for the Delta excursion. After camp is set up, the rest if the afternoon is free for relaxing next to the swimming pool.
Included meals: breakfast and lunch
Day 3, 4, 5 OKAVANGO DELTA (camping)
Expert local guides will take us deep into the heart of the Okavango Delta on ’mekoro’ (dug-out canoes). The Delta forms as water flows from the Angolan highlands over the flat Botswanan Kalahari Desert sands, creating a lush, green oasis for birds and wildlife. We will camp wild on remote islands in this pristine, dynamic environment, and enjoy bush walks, bird watching and swimming in the crystal clear water.
Camping with our local guides will enable us to learn more about their lifestyle and culture. We return to Maun in the late afternoon of day 5 and have time for an optional (at own expense) game flight over the Okavango, which will reveal a different, and dramatically beautiful, aspect of the Delta.
Included meals: breakfast x3, lunch x3, dinner x2
Day 6,7,8,9 MOREMI & SAVUTI (camping)
We have 4 nights in these conservation areas with time to explore the various habitats. We will spend our time on game drives watching the plentiful wildlife including wild dog, elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion and a large variety of other game.
Moremi Game Reserve is rated one of the leading wildlife areas in the world, and we venture into this oasis with our open 4WD vehicle enabling once in a lifetime game viewing! Grasslands, floodplains, forests, lily lagoons and winding water channels combine to form a huge variety of game viewing habitats.
Moving north over the sand ridge and into the Mababe depression we arrive at the Savuti Marsh. This open grassland area attracts large herds of zebra and wildebeest, which in turn draw the magnificent lion prides for which Savuti is renowned. We camp wild in the central Chobe National Park at either Savuti or Zwei-Zwei.
Included meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner
Day 10 – 11 CHOBE NATIONAL PARK (camping)
The Chobe River winds lazily along the northern boundary of the Chobe National Park, attracting some of the largest herds of elephant in Africa. In the early morning light we set out to search for game, returning to camp for brunch. The late afternoon game viewing sundowner cruise is a highlight, as we see immense elephant herds returning to the Chobe River for water. We camp at Kasane on the Chobe River for night 11.
Included meals: breakfast x2, lunch x2, dinner x1
Day 12 – 13 VICTORIA FALLS / LIVINGSTONE (Waterfront Adventure Village Rooms)
Overnight for 2 nights in Zambia near Livingstone town on the banks of the Zambezi River. Here we will enjoy a dazzling walk through tropical vegetation to the very edge of the “Mosi oa Tunya” or “the smoke that thunders” – the mighty Victoria Falls. Here there will be opportunities to white water raft on the famous Zambezi River, bungi jump, or take a “flight of angels” (all at own expense).
Included meals: breakfast x2
Day 14 LIVINGSTONE
Tour ends at 08:00, after breakfast. Transfers to local airports are available upon request.
