Itinerary

Day 1: We will pick you up anywhere in Maun and transfer you to “The Old Bridge” and check you in to an en-suite tent for the night for dinner bed and breakfast.
Day 2: Meet after breakfast at around 8:00 and have time for a quick cup of coffee or tea in a wonderful riverside setting while meeting our guide to discuss the safari.
We depart from there in our safari vehicle for the drive to Moremi, driving time varies a bit depending on the condition of the road, it usually takes an hour before you start viewing game and about 1 hour 45minutes before reaching Moremi South Gate.
We then head to the West onto the open plains of the “Black Pools” area for a 7 hour game viewing drive en-route to camp. Our guide will choose a good shady place to stop and set up our picnic lunch. This area boasts some classic seasonal and permanent swamp landscapes and is a good area in which to view Cheetah, Buffalo and Wild dogs.
We arrive at our site near 3rd Bridge late afternoon to find our mobile safari camp set up.
On each day that we transit from one site to another our crew drives ahead to move and set up camp before our arrival. The sites we use are all exclusive operators sites that are not shared with other groups.
The tents we use on this safari are 3m x 3m walk-in dome tents, each one has one or two comfortable stretchers with bedrolls depending on whether you are sharing or not. Each bedroll is made up with a fitted cotton sheet, duvet and pillow. Each tent has an attached canvass enclosure to the rear with its own shower and toilet area.
After we have arrived at the camp and have been shown to our tents to settle in our staff would have organised some warm water for the showers and will have the preparations for a three course fire-cooked meal underway.

Day:3 On this day we go out for a full day game drive exploring the intricate network of game drive roads in Moremi with a packed picnic lunch. We stop at the Mokoro staion at Mboma Island for a 2 hour mokoro ride for those of us who wish to spend a little time gliding along some of the Okavango waterways.

Day 4: Our wake up call is at 5:30 for tea or coffee and cereal, we then go out for a 2 hour game drive arriving back by 8am for a cooked breakfast. By 10am we depart from 3rd Bridge for a slow gameviewing drive through the north of Moremi to Khwai. This will take up most of the day as we can then visit areas such as “Dead tree Island” and “Dombo hippo pools” with a picnic on the way. Our crew will have time to lable our tents and bedrolls, dismantle camp and get ahead of us.
We will arrive at our site at Magotho in the late afternoon to familiarise ourselves with our new bushcamp. We can then take a short drive down to watch the late afternoon and sunset unfold over the Khwai river before enjoying our third night around a campfire.

Day 5: On our full day in Khwai we will go on a very early to mid morning game drive and spend the middle of the day to mid afternoon resting in camp. We will then go out for an afternoon and evening game drive with a little night time gameviewing for the chance to spot nocturnal animals. We will arrive back for dinner around 8:30pm.

Day 6: Our wake up call is at 5:30 for tea or coffee and cereal, we then go out for a 3 hour game drive arriving back by 9:00am for a cooked brunch. By 10:00am we depart from Magotho for a last meander along the Khwai river to give our crew time to pack up and move on. We then head for Chobe South Gate and on to Savuti for some afternoon game viewing. Savuti is famous for the full array of preditors that inhabit its wide open landscapes. In such a dry landscape they are here to hunt animals drawn to the waters of the Savuti channel which flows from Linyanti to the Savuti marsh.

Day 7:Our wake up call is at 5:30 for tea or coffee and cereal, we then go out for a 5 hour game drive arriving back by 11:00am for a cooked brunch. After brunch and a couple of hours in camp we head back out for another game drive from 2:30pm to sunset.
Arrive back in camp at last light for our last campfire feast on this safari.

Day 8: Wake up call at 5:30am Coffee/tea and a cooked breakfast. Depart camp at around 7am for a 5 hour drive to Kasane including a last look around the Savuti area on our way. We then end our safari in Kasane at around 12 o’clock at “Coffee Buzz”, next door to the “Kalahari Tours” office for your transfer to Victoria Falls, or to start your northern Chobe Safari.
