Day 1 - September 9, 2019
A scenic flight from Maun to Moremi kicks
off your safari. After meeting your ‘bush pilot’
you will fly over the Okavango World Heritage
site. From the air there is a good chance
to see larger animals such as elephant and
hippo, as well as witnessing the legendary
‘flood’ from Angola. On landing in the bush
you will be met by your guide, Andrew, and
taken on your first game drive to camp.
Day 2 - September 10, 2019
We wake you up early in order to give
us the best chance of seeing the nocturnal
animals such as lions and leopard. After
a light breakfast “on the run” we depart
camp and explore the Moremi area of the
Okavango Delta. Late morning, we will
return to camp and have a hearty lunch
consisting of an English breakfast and
In the heat of the day we siesta, read and
generally do what the animals do - avoid
Following high tea, we head out again
tracking Africa’s most elusive animals.
After a traditional sundowner we night
drive back to camp using a spot light to
illuminate the eyes of nocturnal animals.
This is a perfect way to see otherwise
elusive species such as hyena, genets,
bushbabies and maybe even a leopard!
Back at camp we enjoy another fire and
excellent dinner before bedtime.
Day 3 - September 11, 2019
Today we will experience the Okavango
by boat in Xaxanaxa Lagoon. The deep
water brings a contrast in habitats,
vegetation and big game. Hippos and
crocodiles abound. The boat is a smooth
and relaxing ride and you will get to enjoy
a delicious packed lunch.
When the afternoon heat starts to bite we
take a slow drive back to the comforts of
Day 4 - September 12, 2019
It is moving day so an early start is again
essential. The team goes on ahead with
the camp while we spend a leisurely day
traversing the Okavango wilderness.
Time is on our side so today is a good
opportunity to take lots of photographs
and spend time watching animal behavior.
A bush lunch is taken in a quiet spot
surrounded by nature.
In the afternoon we move out of Moremi,
over the Khwai bridge and into the Khwai
Conservancy. This is Bushman land
and we pass through their village before
heading to our newly set up camp. After
a hot day, a cold gin and tonic awaits by
Day 5 - September 13, 2019
After a hot cup of coffee we spend the day
exploring the open flood plains and small
channels of the Khwai Conservancy. An early
start, is followed by a game drive in search
of Okavango specials such as Red Lechwe
and cheetah. Sit back and relax in the shady
camp before going out for sundowners as it
Day 6 - September 14, 2019
This morning, we head out for a game walk
around the Khwai concession. Walking in
the bush is a great opportunity to look at
the smaller things that are not noticed from
the vehicle. Animal tracking, wild flowers and botany are amongst the highlights. On
discovering a large animal we approach
using wind direction and careful observation
of the landscape to ensure we pass
After lunch we experience the Okavango
by Mokoro (traditional dug-out canoe).
We take a short drive to the Mokoro station
on the Khwai River
Here you will be met by your “polar” who
will slowly take you through the shallow
floodplains of the Delta. We avoid deeper
waters that are frequented by hippos and
crocodiles. Your mokoro trip lasts for roughly
two hours and is a great chance to relax,
experience the crystal clear water and enjoy
some bird and game watching.
Day 7 - September 15, 2019
Today we leave the Delta and move north into
the Chobe National Park. The road takes us
through the Mababe Depression which once
formed the lower end of the Savute Marsh.
We have lunch under a large Acacia tree and
enjoy the open savanna view. Elephants,
giraffe and warthog are common in the
area along with the resident Hornbills who
cant wait for us to leave so they can eat the
Our journey takes us then to Savute - a
famous predator area. By now the team have
taken down the camp in the Delta, driven all
the way and set it up once again in Savute.
On arrival you find exactly the same camp
and team - in a totally different environment.
Day 8 - September 16, 2019
Today we explore the vast plains of the
Savute Marsh. The marsh fills up with water from the channel on a generational basis
and can dry up at anytime. Its sweet grasses
attract vast herds of elephant, buffalo and
antelope. Ghosting the herds are lions,
leopards and African Wild dogs, we spend
the morning tracking them!
We are now back to the familiar safari
routine of morning breakfast, a hearty lunch
followed by a siesta, afternoon tea and a
three course supper under the stars.
Day 9 - September 17, 2019
Savute is home to a series of rocky outcrops
known as the Gobatsaa Hills. On one of
these hills the ancient Bushmen people left
their mark through a series of rock paintings.
We spend time scrambling up the hill on foot
to examine the rock art. The paintings are
on a sharp ledge with breathtaking views
over the Savute Channel and the endless
Day 10 - September 18, 2019
There is time for one more game drive enroute
to the airstrip ‘Savute International’
and your next destination. A drive through
the savannas of Savute with the likelihood of
some farewell elephants is the perfect way to
finish off the safari!
