For the more adventurous of heart there is a scenic flight over the Okavango Delta (own expense). The day ends with a relaxing sundowner drink at the pool, and a meal in the lodge restaurant, (own expense) celebrating the start of the journey. [camping - - -]|
Day 2 – 5 MOREMI & SAVUTI
|4wd open vehicle We have 4 nights in these conservation areas with time to explore the various habitats. We spend our time on game drives watching the plentiful wildlife including wild dog, elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion & other game.
Moremi Game Reserve rates as one of the leading wildlife areas of the world and we take our open 4WD vehicle into Moremi for fantastic game viewing! Grasslands, floodplains, forests, lily lagoons and winding water channels combine to form a 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 herds of zebra and wildebeest, which in turn draw the large lion prides for which Savuti is famous. The waterhole near camp is also a favorite drinking point for many elephant and the sunsets here are fantastic. [camping BLD]
Day 6 – 7 CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
|4wd open vehicle The Chobe River flows lazily along the northern boundary of the Chobe National Park attracting some of the largest herds of elephant in Africa. In the early morning we search for game and return to camp for brunch. The late afternoon game viewing “sundowner” cruise is a highlight as we see the mighty elephant herds returning to the Chobe River to quench their thirst. We camp at Kasane on the Chobe River for night 7. [camping Bx2 Lx2 Dx1]|
