Day 3 – 5

Moremi Game Reserve – Khwai Community Area, Botswana

Distance approx. 80 km; driving time approx. 3-4h

After a leisurely breakfast you will continue onwards to the Khwai Community Area, which will take approximately 3-4 hours, depending on road conditions. Along the way you will stop to rest and enjoy an invigorating lunchbox. The Khwai River forms a border between the community area of the same name and the Moremi Game Reserve. The following days will be spent exploring the Khwai floodplains by day as well as night. You also have the opportunity to explore the Okavango Delta by mokoro (log canoes). The mokoros are steered by so-called “polers” from the Khwai Community, who know the labyrinth of waterways like the back of their hands. Particularly fascinating are the night game drives, where you will get the chance to spot the nocturnal animals as well as closely inspect the nightly activities of animals seen during the day. These night game drives are conducted in the Khwai Community Area, outside the perimeters of the Moremi Game Reserve, offering a truly unique experience. Dinner and overnight at a campsite.

Day 6 – 8

Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana – Chobe National Park, Botswana

Distance approx. 120 km; driving time approx. 5h

After breakfast has been eaten and the camp has been packed up, you will continue your journey onwards to the Chobe National Park. The next three nights will be spent in the Savute Region of the Chobe National Park, an area rich in wildlife. The national park is well known for its large elephant herds that at times can have as much as 300 animals. Since 2010, the once very dry region, has been receiving a regular stream of water from the Savuti Channel – after a 30 year dry spell! Due to the now flowing water, the region houses a type of migration of zebras, kudus, impalas and wildebeest, closely followed by the predators always hot on their heels. The following days are set aside for game drives in the western part of the Chobe National Park. In the evenings you will head back to your camp for a delicious meal and a cosy evening in front of the campfire with the stars lighting up the skies like diamonds. The sounds of the animal kingdom will take you off to dreamland. Overnight at a campsite.

You will spend the next two days on game drives through the park and on day 10 enjoy a boat safari on the Chobe River. Bumpy roads, dust and detours are long forgotten when speeding along the river shore and getting up close and personal to the animals taking a sip of the refreshing water.
