Enjoy venturing into Botswana on a mobile camping safari staying at Meru style walk-in tents at wilderness campsites. Discover Botswana’s world famous Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta system in the world, and explore the Moremi Game Reserve on game drives. Travelling in 4X4 safari vehicles, ideal for game viewing, you will be expertly guided through the African bushveld.
Day 1 to Day 2 - Moremi Game Reserve
On arrival at Maun Airport you will be met and provided with a snack pack before you meet your pilot for your stunning light aircraft scenic flight over the Okavango Delta and Chief’s Island. This flight gives you a fish eagle’s eye view of this amazing ecosystem. When you land at your remote bush airstrip within the Moremi Game Reserve, your guide will be waiting to transfer you to your mobile camp – with a game drive enroute. The friendly, attentive staff will help you feel immediately at home and brief you on what to look forward to on your safari. The magic of a mobile camp becomes apparent as the sunsets and you enjoy drinks around the fire before a starlit dinner and a great night’s rest after falling asleep to the sounds of the African bush.

Explore the surrounding wilderness on game drives during the day. The Moremi Game Reserve protects around a third of the entire Okavango Delta ecosystem – some 5 000 square kilometres.
Serviced camping in an en-suite tent on a mobile safari in the Moremi Game Reserve.
Day 3 to Day 5 - Khwai River
Following an early breakfast the camp will be packed up before continuing your journey to Khwai, stopping for a picnic lunch enroute. The Khwai River forms a boundary between the reserve and the community area. You will spend the next three nights camping at a campsite in the community area, exploring the Khwai floodplains on game drives both during the day and at night. Here, you will also enjoy a 2½ hour Mokoro Trip exploring the water ways of Khwai which is the most eastern reach of the Okavango river system. (BLD)
Exploring after dark with spotlights offers you a unique opportunity to experience some of the nocturnal animals that are rarely encountered during the day. It is important to note that night drives are not permitted within the national parks and reserves. These activities are conducted outside the boundaries of the Moremi Game Reserve in the Khwai Community Area.
Serviced camping in an en-suite tent on a mobile safari in the Khwai Community Area.
Day 6 to Day 8 - Savute
Head further north enroute to Chobe National Park, were you will spend the following three nights camping in a wilderness campsite in the Savute region, exploring the desert-like landscape on game drives. Never has there been a better time to visit Savute! The water from the Savute Channel reached the marsh for the first time in 30 years in 2010 winding its way from the North. Savute has for the last 30 years been an extremely dry area and lately its claim to fame has been the lion and elephant interaction as they come for the few drops of water that remain in the waterholes.

On Day 10 you will also enjoy an afternoon boat cruise on the Chobe River which departs from Kasane. (BLD)
