Overview

Our Botswana Highlights safari starts in the town of Victoria Falls, home to not the highest or the widest, but the largest waterfall in the world. The bustling town of Victoria Falls also offers a range of optional activities for those wanting a dose of adrenaline. If you would like to visit the falls and view the Mosi-Oa-Tunya, we suggest building in a day or two extra into your holiday package and arrive a few days before your safari beings. Leaving Victoria Falls, we head to the border of Botswana and set up on the banks of the Chobe National Park, where we will spend the afternoon viewing animals from the comfort of a safari river boat. The Chobe National Park is undoubtedly the country’s most beautiful and popular nature and wildlife reserve, making it a popular tourist attraction in Botswana. There will be an opportunity for an optional safari drive in the Chobe National Park if you wish to explore the park from the land. Next we set off for a full day of safari driving through the Savuti Game Reserve in specially designed open 4×4 safari viewing vehicles. Savuti Game Reserve is a unique area bordered by the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park and is renowned as a big game area and known for having the largest concentrations of wildlife in Southern Africa. Our journey leads us onto Moremi Game Reserve, situated on the eastern side of the Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland delta, a labyrinth of lagoons, lakes and hidden channels covering 17 000 square kilometres. Water levels and temperatures fluctuate significantly from season to season so no two experiences are ever the same. We will spend two nights just outside the Moremi South Gate entrance which allows us a vantage point of entering the reserve for our afternoon wildlife safari drive. Polers will also guide your mokoro through the waterways and a nature walk will keep us entertained, before we end our safari in Maun.

Day 04

Savuti Game Reserve

You will be separated from your Nomad truck for the next 2 nights and it is therefore important that you pack/gather your personal belongings which you may need, before we depart camp today.  Please pack lightly and only take what you need for the following two nights.  The Savuti Game Reserve is a unique area bordered by the Okavango Delta to west and Chobe National Park to the east.  Savuti is renowned as a big game area and known for having the largest concentrations of wildlife in Southern Africa.  Today we will spend most of our day travelling through the Savuti Game Reserve in search of the species that roam the plains.  Offering habitats from wetland, open water to the grasslands and Savannah woodland, we hope to see as many species of fauna and flora possible.  This afternoon we will arrive at our camp in the Greater Moremi Game Reserve Area.

Heading out early, we transfer by safari vehicle, to the poling station, where we will meet the polers who will be escorting us into the Delta.  The polers will steer us through the serene area of narrow, reed lined channels which open out onto beautiful lagoons.  Reaching one of the many islands, a nature walk may be taken with your pole and after the walk, we return by mokoro through the channels back to the poling station.  While the mokoro trail is not primarily a game viewing activity, a variety of game may be spotted in this pristine wilderness area, including elephant, giraffe, kudu, impala and zebra.   After lunch, we will return to Moremi Game Reserve for our afternoon game drive which will be conducted in open 4×4 safari vehicles.  The game viewing routes chosen during the afternoon by the professional guide may vary especially when high floods are experienced as certain roads may be closed or impassable.
