Detailed Itinerary:

Days 1&2 Chobe Safari Lodge or Chobe Bush Lodge, Kasane

Your safari starts in wonderful Chobe where your lodge lies by the banks of the Chobe River.  Join guided activities into Chobe as game drives in open vehicles or boat cruises along the river where you’ll be a witness to the spectacle of herds of elephants crossing the waterways, game drinking from the banks of the river and perhaps predators lying in wait.  Listen to the grunts of the hippos and the watch out for the stealthy crocs.

Day 3&4 Kwando Lebala Camp, Kwando River

From Kasane Airport, transfer by light aircraft to Lebala, hidden in the southern portion of the extensive Kwando wilderness of 232,000ha, Lebala means wide open spaces, and the area is a labyrinth of waterways, reed beds, islands and floodplains, bush, scrub and trees. Excellent general game abounds the broad plains creating spectacular scenery, adorned with herds of plains game and the ever–attentive predators. The Kwando concession is home to more elephant than the entire country of South Africa. Game drives are rewarding and you may be lucky to see elephants, lion, cheetah, leopard and perhaps one of the packs of wild dog that frequent the area. Two nights fully inclusive Lebala means ‘wide open spaces’ in Setswana and the scenery is dominated by vast plains with scattered palms and tree islands backed by wooded savannahs. This wild expanse contrasts with the casual understated elegance of the camp itself. This special ecosystem is home to a wide variety of Africa’s plains game such as zebra, wildebeest, impala, giraffe and tsessebe and also provides refuge to lechwe, waterbuck and the shy sitatunga

Days 5&6 Mma Dinare/Rra Dinare, Okavango Delta

A further scenic flight to the Okavango Delta taking in the magnificence of the winding, papyrus fringed channels that make up one of the world’s greatest wet land wonders. You will be able to see some of Africa’s most celebrated animals from a bird’s eye view 500 FT above the ground; the Okavango is an immense river that never meets the sea. Instead, its crystal–clear waters spread across the Kalahari Desert, forming Africa’s largest wetland phenomenon. The Delta is an abundant oasis amid the vast plains and pans of the desert that covers most of Southern Africa. Its waterways are a mesh of meandering and intercepting channels, creating a haven for Africa’s most celebrated wildlife.  Explore the tall palm islands, dry open plains, meandering channels and lush floodplains of the Okavango on memorable game drives, mokoros and nature walks with the chance to see nature close–up in this unique environment.

Days 7&8 Moremi Crossing, or Gunn’s Camp, Okavango Delta

It’s a shorter flight  as it takes you to the water–based camp. On this tour you’ll spend 4nights in the Delta to ensure you experience both a land–based and water–based camp, offering a range of activities.  Here, your nights are spent overlooking the legendary Chiefs Island bordering Moremi Game Reserve enjoying boat cruises and mokoro excursions gliding silently through channels and watching game at eye level – look out for the jewel–like reed frogs, often small but beautifully marked and coloured, blending into their background and clinging to the rustling reeds.

Day 9&10 Tau Pan, Central Kalahari Game Reserve

Your final destination takes you on a flight to Tau Pan in the Kalahari Desert – the camp sits on the ridge of a dune with views across the desert – watch out for black–maned lions – there’s a pride that reside near the lodge. Join game drives and activities into the surrounding habitat – it’s a complete contrast to what you’ll see in the following days and see desert–adapted game including oryx, springbok and much more.

Day 11 Maun – onward flight

After breakfast you’ll fly from camp to Maun and continue with onward connection

How we rate our safaris

Namibia, Botswana and some other African destinations do not have a set star system that is familiar worldwide to many countries, however, as this is widely used, we have tried to replicate this format to give you an idea of the level of comfort during your safari. For example, a mobile camping tour in Namibia is given 1* and luxury accommodation increasing to 5*. Depending on your tour, there may be a bit of a mix of levels of comfort so please check if you are not sure.

1* or 1–2* Rated Safaris – Camping tours:

These are generally scheduled/small group or self–drive safaris (though a private–guided safari can also fall into this category if you wish to camp); the scheduled trips generally involve client participation where you may be expected to put up/take down your tent and assist with camp chores, dome tents and a ground mattress is supplied. For self–drive options this will often mean roof tents on the vehicle and all camping equipment. There may be the occasional night in simple accommodation but majority of nights are spent camping and most camp sites will have shared ablution facilities. If there is a good mix of both camping and accommodation, this may be rated at 1&2*. These are the most basic level of safaris offered and scheduled safari group sizes vary according to the trip and company – 1* tours are the most affordable option and geared for adventurous travellers who do not mind a bit of discomfort.

Accommodated Safaris

Standard/Mid–range safaris 2–3.5*

Standard accommodation style trips generally have no camping included (though on occasion with a specific activity such as a Delta or Serengeti excursion, or perhaps hiking, a couple of nights may be included). As a general rule this is not the case. With most small group/scheduled tours accommodation is generally 2/3* level – clean and affordable but generally without too many frills; rooms will have en–suite facilities, most will offer air con/fans in the rooms, swimming pools etc (not guaranteed), restaurant/bar facilities, though location can be a little further away from main place of interest this option offers excellent value for money for those seeking a bed each night! We try to indicate on each trip the level of comfort for the particular tour

Superior/Luxury Safaris 3.5–5*

A superior style of accommodation. Most lodges at this level will have air–conditioning or fans in the room though some accommodation establishments are technically “camps” as they may be partially build of canvas – these “camps” are permanent fixtures, generally built on a platform, and will have full and comfortable facilities – the occasional trip may have a more basic night or two involved depending on location to ensure clients can fully appreciate the region they are experiencing. Service is generally very good and most places (outside of towns/cities) will have just a few rooms/chalets. Tours in this bracket include very small group safaris (up to 8 clients), self–drive and private–guided options which are tailored to suit you. The luxury options offer a high standard of accommodation, facilities and service in the region with attention to detail – some “camps” /lodges will have private guides and vehicles, but all accommodation is the best available with personalized service and a quality or unique experience perhaps unavailable elsewhere or in a more moderate price bracket. Tours include fly–in safaris, self–drive and private–guided options.

Please note: this is a guideline only and each destination can vary – some areas in Southern Africa do not always have 5* accommodation (there are limited hotels outside of cities that have the same * grading accommodation) but will be best in the area, have limited volume of rooms and some of the best locations and experiences for clients that is outside of the normal “tourist/travel” route. This can include exclusive conservation regions and emphasis is place on clients having a unique experience rather than offering hairdresser type of facilities that may be found is hotels in cities in other countries. Please also remember that some of these locations can be remote so wifi may not always be available, nor a huge menu range.
