BOTSWANA HIGHLIGHTS, GAME VIEWING SAFARI

The classic Botswana safari. Botswana is one of the true, remaining wilderness areas in Africa. 35% of the country is dedicated to conservation and Botswana has the 2nd largest area (in percentage terms) allocated to nature, of any country in the world. This is a country committed to conserving its abundant wildlife. Botswana is also home to one of Africa’s great natural attractions – the Okavango Delta, a wetland within a desert. See the estimated 70,000 Elephants in the huge and varied Chobe National Park (well, not all of them), especially as they migrate up to 200kms. This itinerary can start or finish in Maun or Kasane and can operate in either direction. It is also just a suggestion and can be extended, or if you are tighter on time you could combine just two camps and areas.

YOUR TRAVEL ITINERARY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Mokoro through the channels in the Okavango Delta.
  • See the huge herds of Elephants in Chobe National Park.
  • Enjoy an exclusive big game safari in amazing Botswana.
  • Fly between lodges in classic Out of Africa style.

YOUR TRAVEL ITINERARY PACKAGE

Your adventure will start in Kasane (or Maun), easily accessible by road from Victoria Falls in 1½-2 hours. A light aircraft transfer (approx. 40 minutes) will take you to the Savute area of Chobe National Park. Savute Safari Lodge is known for its excellent predator viewing and large herds of elephant, and your stay here is 2 nights.

Established in 1968 and covering almost 12,000 square kilometres Chobe National Park is located in Botswana's north and is the third largest national park in Botswana. It boasts one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa and is world renowned for its elephant population - estimated at 70,000, possibly the largest elephant concentration in Africa. The Savuti Marsh region, which constitutes the western stretch of the park, covers 10,800 km². A relic of a large inland lake, the marsh is now fed by the erratic Savuti channel. Savuti has rich grasslands, savannah woodland and a large variety of trees and other vegetation, and is home to large concentrations of lions and elephants. Hippos wallow in the waters, crocodile laze in the sun and rich birdlife surround the area.

TRAVEL TIPS FOR BOTSWANA

LET US GUIDE YOU...

This is the classic Botswana fly-in Safari, combining all of the best elements of a safari in Botswana. The Savute region is (for want of a better phrase) the 'posh' end of Chobe National Park and the scene of some of the best safari action in Africa. This is the home of the lions that have learned to hunt Elephants, as seen on David Attenborough's Planet Earth!

And then the Okavango Delta, unique as the only inland delta in the world. Explore the waterways & channels in a traditional mokoro (canoe) or powerboat, and look for the animals from a unique perspective.

This itinerary is priced on using the camps of Desert & Delta Safaris, surely one of the friendliest companies in Africa, but there are alternatives too. Botswana is a very special destination.
