  1. Day 1 - 3 MOREMI [lodge Bx2 Lx2 Dx3]

    (B=Breakfast L=Lunch D=Dinner)
    This safari starts at Maun airport where you will be met and after a short briefing, you will board a light aircraft flight to Khwai. You will then be met by your safari guide and enjoy your first game drive to the lodge.
    Moremi Game Reserve is the jewel of Botswana and arguably one of the best wildlife viewing destinations in Africa. To the north of Moremi is a vast wilderness consisting of open grasslands and forest and abundant wildlife.  Our lodge is situated on a large concession in this wilderness, overlooking a waterhole, the thatched deck allows us to watch the animals in the afternoon as they come down to quench their thirst. Moremi’s wide variety of habitats makes it a birdwatchers paradise.  Our days are spent on open 4WD game drives in Moremi GR and on the wildlife concession along the Khwai River.

  2. Day 4 - 5 SAVUTI [mini meru serviced camp BLD]

    We head north from Moremi to the renowned Savuti section of the Chobe National Park.  This is an excellent area for big predators with frequent sightings of lion and leopard, elephant and plains game.  We spend our time on game drives through the dramatic open plains dotted with Acacia, and along the Savuti channel where we hope to see the lions and hyenas that make Savuti an outstanding wildlife destination.  We overnight in our serviced tented camp.  After dinner in our dining tent, fall asleep to the sounds of the African bush.

  3. Day 6 - 7 CHOBE NATIONAL PARK [lodge B--]

    Our next destination is Chobe National Park.  We depart Savuti and head north through the remote wilderness of Botswana to the small town of Kasane and our lodge on the banks of the Chobe River. The following day we head back into Chobe NP on a game drive in the early morning before heading back to the comfort of the lodge during the heat of the day.  The afternoon has a surprise boat cruise on the Chobe River.  This is possibly the most satisfying and relaxing game viewing activity in Southern Africa.  We head into the park on a small game viewing boat and spend the next few hours till sunset floating slowly down stream while watching the wildlife come down to drink.  We get close to the herds of elephants, and have amazing sightings of crocodile, hippo, fish eagle and many more. As the sunsets we head out of the park with some amazing wildlife and sunset photographs.

  4. Day 8 VICTORIA FALLS, ZIMBABWE [lodge B - -]

    We leave Botswana behind and cross into Zimbabwe and make our way to Victoria Falls.  The mighty Zambezi River thunders 100m over the gorge creating a magnificent spectacle.  The spray from the waterfall sustains a rainforest surrounding the falls which is abundant with birdlife and protected in a National Park.  We explore the Victoria Falls on foot with a local guide bringing the Falls to life with tales of the explorers of these ancient lands

  5. Day 9 VICTORIA FALLS - TOUR ENDS [- B - -]

    There is time for one of the variety of optional adventure activities (own expense) before the tour ends.
