Payment is to be made to your leader upon arrival in cash.

All prices are approximate and subject to currency fluctuations until final payment has been made.

DAY 1 – ARRIVAL DAY MAUN

Today you will meet up with the group at the lodge in Maun at 17:00. Since Maun’s founding in 1915 as the capital of the Batawana people, it has had a reputation as a hard-living ‘Wild West’ town helping the local cattle ranching and safari operations. The name Maun is derived from the San word ‘maung’, which translates ‘the place of short reeds’

Meals Included: None

DAYS 2 & 3 – OKAVANGO DELTA

We drive into the Okavango Delta to the launch station where we boat accross to our tented camp in the heart of the largest inland delta in the world. This amazing environment has large numbers of red lechwe, buffalo, elephant and birds, particularly kingfishers!

Meals Included: 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches and 2 Dinners -Provided by tour leaders with help from the group.

DAYS 4 to 7 – MOREMI

We take an open 4WD into Moremi Game Reserve for fantastic game viewing! Chief’s Island is the largest landmass within Moremi and was the Botswana tribe’s richest hunting ground, before being declared a game reserve by the tribe. We spend 4 days on game drives watching the abundant wildlife including elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion & other game, both in Moremi Game Reserve and in private concession reserves surrounding the park. We return to Maun midday on Day 7 for an evening restaurant meal (own expense).

Meals Included: 4 Breakfasts, 4 Lunches and 3 Dinners – Provided by lodge and tour leaders

DAY 8 – MAKGADIKGADI PANS

We have time for an optional game flight over the Okavango before we head to Nata (own expense). The shimmering saltpans of Makgadikgadi appear as a glaring white, endless plain. When the rain comes a dramatic change takes place as thousands of wildebeest and zebra migrate to the sweet nutritious grasslands and clouds of flamingo feed in its algae rich waters. It is an area of low rainfall so this spectacle only lasts a short while.

Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

DAYS 9 & 10 – CHOBE NATIONAL PARK

The Chobe River is a stunning feature of Botswana and will be the focus of our lodge stay. The Chobe River flows lazily along the northern boundary of the Chobe National Park attracting some of the largest herds of elephant in Africa. An Early morning 4WD game drive in the Chobe National Park and an afternoon game viewing “sundowner” cruise to see the mighty elephant herds return to the Chobe River to quench their thirst.

Meals Included: 2 Breakfasts and 2 Lunches

DAYS 11 & 12 – VICTORIA FALLS
