Tour Plans

Day 1

Makgadikgadi Pans (Nxai Pan) ( Afternoon Game Drive)

You will be picked up at the Maun Airport and we depart for our first day of safari early in the morning, and head to the Makgadikgadi Pans, a stunning area known for its myriad of Salt Pans. Today we are going to explore the Nxai Pan, one of the largest of the many topographic depressions in the region. Herds of zebras and wildebeest can be seen grazing after the rains come, and the pans are also home to many antelope species, such as the gemsbok and eland. After a day admiring the wildlife and scenery, we depart for camp for some dinner and stargazing.

Overnight Camping

Day 2

Makgadikgadi (Kumaga) (Morning Game Drive to Kumaga, Afternoon Game Drive)

After our first night of camping, we depart a little deeper into the Kumaga Pans, where herds of elephants are plentiful. This area is quite magnificent, and the salt flats stretch for miles covering an area almost as large as Switzerland. Get your binoculars out, as this is a great area for bird watching, as some 350 species cover the area. After our final day in the salt pans, we have one more night at camp before we make our trip to the delta.

Overnight Camping

Day 3

Makgadikgadi/Okavango (Morning Game Drive to Okavango, Afternoon Mokoro)

As we depart for one last game drive out of the Makgadikgadi Pans, we head back towards Maun before making the quick drive to the Mokoro Station, our launching point to the Okavango Delta. We meet our captain and load up the mokoro, traditionally a wooden canoe pushed through the high grass waters of the delta. Keep your eyes peeled for herds of wildebeest and the occasional family of elephants, as well as many different species of exotic birds on our way to camp. If time allows, your guide will take you on a short walk before our big dinner and rest.

Overnight Camping

Day 4

Okavango/Moremi Game Reserve (Morning Game Walk, Mokoro to Station, and Drive to Moremi)

Up bright and early this morning, we depart for a game walk after a hearty breakfast and coffee. After a few days in the Land Cruiser, it feels good to stretch our legs and navigate through the wilderness. Your really on safari now as we search for our prey on foot, stalking the herds of Zebra and Wildebeest just like the many big cats that call this area home. After a good morning of solid game watching, we depart on our mokoro ride back to the station, and hop in the jeep for a drive to the Moremi Game Reserve. This area boasts impressive wildlife and it's breathtaking wilderness, with picturesque views of floodplains, lagoons and grasslands will have you mesmerized.

Overnight Camping

Day 5

Moremi/Khwai Concession (Game Drive out to Khwai Concession and Afternoon Game Drive)

After packing up our camp, we now depart for a game drive out to the Khwai Concessions. Once we arrive, we will depart on a 2 hour boat ride through the Khwai Concessions, an area that will delight with its diverse beauty comprising of a stunning landscape of forests, lagoons, floodplains and islands teeming with wildlife. Game viewing is excellent year-round as resident species such as the lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant, and countless others roam this impressive landscape. Tonight we have the option for a night drive in the Kwhai if you are feeling adventurous.

Overnight Camping

Day 6

Khwai Concession/Savuti (Game Drive out to Savuti and Afternoon Game Drive)

After a good cup of coffee and a hearty breakfast, we depart on towards Savuti, hoping to see some last minute wildlife as we make our way through Khwai. Our afternoon will consist of a good game drive exploring the array of wildlife and wilderness that Savuti offers. Savuti is well known for its' predators, most notably its' resident lion and hyena population, and if we are lucky we may just get up close and personal.

Overnight Camping

Day 7

Savuti (Morning and Afternoon Game Drive)

As the Savuti area is vast, your guide will opt for either a full day trip or a combined morning and afternoon drive, depending on where animals are concentrated. The plains are always a highlight and the area is known for its great concentration of predators. We also have the option to make a short climb to see some Bushman rock paintings, beautiful vistas from the hill, and are back in camp after sundown.

Overnight Camping

Day 8

Savuti/Chobe National Park (Morning Game Drive out to Chobe, Afternoon Game Drive)

Unfortunately, our final day of safari has arrived. As we pack up camp, we get ready for a final game drive out to our last destination, Chobe National Park. Our afternoon consists of exploring the Chobe Game Reserve, where we will make an extensive game-drive along one of the densest populations of game in Africa. Not only do animals such as the antelope and giraffe roam the plains while natural predators like the lion run wild, but this area has one of the largest population of elephants in the world. After a full final day of game drives, we depart for Kasane and your next adventure.
