Botswana Camping Safari

Botswana Overland Camping Safari

Day 1 & 2 Okavango Delta

At Maun International Airport transfer to a light aircraft for a flight to Nxabega Airstrip, where a safari vehicle will be waiting to take you to the campsite. Tucked under massive trees, this campsite is situated close to a number of permanent river channels.

Explore the crystal-clear lagoons, islands and waterways by mekoro (dug-out canoe), and enjoy game-viewing walks on the islands. Spend two nights at our campsite in a private concession area with a complement of camp staff to cater for your needs.

Awaken each morning to a chorus of birds or the chattering of monkeys and linger in the comfort of your fully sized bed as you listen to the sounds of your hot bucket shower being filled with steaming hot water.

Day 3 & 4 Moremi Game Reserve

A short flight in a light aircraft takes you to Khwai in the Moremi game Reserve. Covering approximately a third of the Okavango Delta, the Moremi combines permanent waterways with drier areas, creating a reserve filled with unexpected contrasts and diverse wildlife. Its riverine forests, tall mopane woodlands and spreading floodplains fringed with majestic palms make it one of Africa’s most scenic wildlife areas.

The combination of habitats makes Moremi the ideal place for your expedition to combine typical savanna game viewing with leisurely cruises along lagoons and channels, and rich bird watching. Spend two nights camping in the Reserve.

Day 5 & 6 Savute

A long game drive (5 - 6 hours) takes you to Savute in the Southern Chobe National Park, where you will spend two nights camping next to the dry Savute Channel in an area renowned for sightings of lion and other predator.

The landscape around Savute is starkly beautiful, with an arid, almost desert-like feel. Mopane forest gives way to acacia savanna with rocky outcrops. Large areas of marshland that extended from the Linyanti River have dried up along with the Savute River, but several artificial watering holes attract a high concentration of wildlife.

Day 7 & 8 Serondela

Travel to northern Chobe (4 - 5 hours overland game drive), where you will camp for two nights in the Serondela area. This is the heart of elephant country and you may spend many hours watching the huge herds in and around the Chobe River on game drives or private boat cruises. Northern Chobe is renowned for its large variety of bird and animal life, beautiful scenery and magnificent sunsets.

Day 9 Victoria Falls

It is a short drive to Victoria Falls, where you can relax in a spacious suite at Matetsi Water Lodge .With 15 km (nine miles) of exclusive Zambezi River frontage, Matetsi offers an unrivalled river experience to spectacular game viewing and birdwatching. Guests delight in afternoon riverboat cruises and guided canoe excursions along the Zambezi River.

Day 10 Departure

After breakfast at Matetsi, you will be taken to Victoria Falls International Airport by road.
