Best of Botswana Safari Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Kasane Chalets Lunch, Dinner

We depart Livingstone at 8:00am and head for the border to Botswana, where after border formalities, we cross the Zambezi River by ferry, on our way to Kasane. Kasane is a pleasant town situated on the edge of the Chobe National Park and the Chobe River. This afternoon we begin exploring the National Park from the River on a scenic boat cruise. Elephant, hippo and many bird species including the regal African Fish Eagle and Pied Kingfisher can be viewed from the boat while we watch another glorious African sunset.


Day 2: Makgadikgadi Pans / Nata Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This morning we are greeted by the sound of the resident Hippos! After breakfast, we make our way south to the Makgadikgadi Pans (weather permitting) where we get our first glimpse of the semi-arid Mopane woodland scenery. The Makgadikgadi Pans are rumored to be the largest salt pans in the world and present a rare sight of a completely flat, white, vegetation free area, surrounded by plant life only on its edges.


Day 3: Maun Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today we travel to the Maun, the gateway to the Okavango Delta. The town has many shops, markets and modern facilities such as internet cafes. We spend the afternoon at leisure preparing for our trip into the Delta tomorrow.


Day 4: Okavango Delta Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After an early breakfast we depart via 4x4 vehicles to the Delta Region. We drive to a mokoro (local dugout canoe) station where we meet our local guides & polers who will escort us on today's excursion. The Okavango Delta is a huge expanse of water that has travelled from the Kavango River from the Angolan highlands, and fans out onto the upper Kalahari region to form the largest inland Delta in the World. Studded with exotic islands, the Delta is renowned for its incredible variety of bird life as well as many other animals unique to Southern Africa. We explore the channels and waterways by traditional means in a mokoro – this is the local form of transport used to traverse the many waterways of the Delta. In the late afternoon we have the option to observe the Delta from above by taking part in an optional scenic flight.


Day 5: Moremi Game Reserve Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

We head off early for the Moremi Game Reserve. Moremi lies on the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and is home to many different species of Wildlife. It is here that Lion, elephant, buffalo and many other species are often sighted. The Game Reserve itself covers a little over 1000km² and was declared a protected area in 1961 when the widow of Chief Moremi the 3rd feared that the wildlife was under threat due to hunting. We game drive within the park to seek out some of the resident wildlife.


Day 6: Moremi Game Reserve Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

See day 5 for Itinerary


Day 7: Savuti Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Continuing on through the wilderness, we game drive further north-east into the Savuti region. The Savuti is well known for the prides of lion that make it their home. Tonight we enjoy the sounds of the wilderness from deep within the heart of Botswana.


Day 8: Chobe National Park Chalet Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Once through the Savuti, we once again reach the Chobe National Park, entering from the southern side and exploring the more remote inner section of the park. Chobe is one of Botswana's premier game parks, renowned its large elephant herds.


Day 9: Livingstone Chalet Breakfast, Lunch

This morning starts with an early morning game drive into Chobe National Park to explore the river front area by vehicle. We return in the late morning, and make our way back to Livingstone via the Kazangula Ferry. We have the late afternoon at leisure to relax along the banks of the Zambezi.


Day 10: Trip Ends   Breakfast

After breakfast, we exchange addresses and part ways, having just experienced a trip of a lifetime. For those wishing to explore Livingstone, we recommend adding a few days prior to, or after this trip.
