Spending your first two nights camping in the Xakanaxa / Third Bridge area. Exploring the surrounding wilderness on game drives during the day.
3 nights camping in the Khwai Area – Moremi Game Reserve
Following an early breakfast, we pack up the camp and continue our journey to Khwai, stopping for a bush picnic lunch en route. The Khwai River forms the boundary between the reserve and the local Khwai Community Area.
We spend the next three nights camping at a campsite in Khwai area of Moremi Game Reserve. You will also experience a 2½-hour mokoro trip, discovering channels and lagoons at a relaxed pace in a traditional dug-out canoe.
3 nights camping at Savute – Chobe National Park
We head further north en route to Chobe National Park, were we spend the following three nights camping at a pristine bush campsite in the Savute region and exploring the dry landscape on game drives.
Savute is an area that can change dramatically, with the character of the place changing completely depending on the flowing or drying up of the Savute Channel. In 2010, water from the Savute Channel reached the Marsh for the first time in three decades (after a long dry period during which resident lions learned to prey on elephants coming to drink at isolated waterholes). The presence of water can transform these dynamics!
2 nights camping at the Chobe Rivier Front – Chobe National Park
Leaving this parched landscape, we continue our journey north to the contrasting Chobe region of the park. We spend the last two nights camping in a wilderness campsite near the Chobe River, exploring the riverbanks and surrounding flood plains on game drives.
On Day 9 you will enjoy an afternoon boat cruise on the Chobe River which departs from Kasane.
End of your safari
Following breakfast and a short game drive your safari will end in Kasane at around 09h00.
