Wake up early to take a beautiful trip to the famous Chobe National Park. You will notice when we drive the vegetation changes from time to time. Along the way you get mophane woodland and acacia tortilis. Chobe National Park is mostly dominated by the Zimbabwe teak, which is very good for making furniture. On the way we will see lots of animals until we get to the Chobe enclave which incorporates five villages. We arrive at Chobe National Park around lunch. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served every day. After a siesta you will go for an afternoon game drive along the Chobe River where we will see big herds of buffalo, elephant, pods of hippos, and prides of lions.

You will experience the magnificent vast open space of the salt pans driving towards the look out point and with luck you will find the flamingos who come to breed in the winter. It is one of the greatest breeding sites for lesser and greater flamingos in the world. There are more than 150 other bird species to be found such as pelicans, stilts, korhaans, bustards and spoonbills. Birding tours in Africa give you an experience of both wildlife, primate and culture tours because birds are found in all these habitats. The birds are abundant and generally easy to see in their habitats in both protected and unprotected community land. Our bird watching tours will take you across the country traversing different bird habitats with professional bird guides. Other wildlife to be seen here includes springbok, ostriches, jackal, oryx, hartebeest, wildebeast and kudu

 

DAY 7: MAKGADIKGADI (GWETA) 

The Makgadikgadi forms part of the Kalahari Basin, located in the central region of Botswana and consists of a number of pans. The area it covers is about the size of Portugal. It was an enormous lake in the ancient past but when that dried up these dazzling white pans were all that remained. The Makgadikgadi is extremely arid and waterless for most of the year and it is hard to see how anything can survive, yet you'll see evidence of stone-age habitation and spot smaller creatures that have adapted to life in such extremes. When the rains do come, the pans are totally transformed, attracting abundant game, predators, thousands of Pink Flamingos and other astounding bird species. You will camp here for two nights. You will get a chance to camp out in the open and watch the sun as it rises and goes down. In the evening you will enjoy star gazing, it is an 
amazing experience you will never forget. “You'll enjoy a unique sense of freedom here in the Makgadikgadi pans”. 

DAY 8-9: LEKHUBU ISLAND 

Wake up early and head for Lekhubu Island immediately after breakfast. Lekhubu Island is a rock outcrop which was submerged in the waters of the great Lake Makgadigkadi which was one of the largest lakes in Africa. Kubu is a Setswana name for hippopotamus, while Lekhubu means a rock outcrop. 

About 10 000 years ago the Lake Makgadikgadi dried up and Lekhubu was left, an island surrounded by miles and miles of white salt. Research indicates that climatic changes and earth movements over thousands and thousands of years caused this dramatic change to take place. Low rock walls on the southern side of Lekhubu Island date back to the great Zimbabwean empire. 

Packed lunch will be served along the way. Upon arrival, clients will be taken for a game drive and later return to camp for a shower and dinner before heading to bed. 

DAY 10: RAKOPS VILLAGE 

Rakops, also called Tsienyane, is a village located in the Central District of Botswana. It is positioned SouthWest of Makgadikgadi Pan, which is a large salt pan in the middle of the dry Savanna of North-Eastern Botswana. Activities here include cultural tours around the village as well as cultural dancing, story telling of the people who live here. Enjoy a cultural experience and learn about the history of the San people. You will camp here for one night. 


DAY 11-12:  CKGR 

After breakfast we depart to Central Kalahari Game Reserve, which covers an area of 52 000 square kilometers. The region of vast open plains, salt pans and ancient riverbeds is home to large herds of springbok, gemsbok. Blue wildebeest, red hartebeest and the largest of all antelopes, the eland. Made famous by Mark and Delia Owen in the book Cry of the Kalahari, we will camp here for two nights. During our stay here we will track the black maned lion of the Kalahari. African wild dogs, cheetahs, brown hyenas can also be found following their prey in this unmated wilderness. The black maned lion of the Kalahari has a dominant colour, its adaptation is very high and therefore it can survive in harsh conditions. 

Wake up at around 06:00 for a light breakfast and then head out in search of honey badgers and jackal whilst keeping a look out for lion, cheetah and wild dog. Return to camp for lunch, and a siesta. In the afternoon, a trip to the famous Deception Valley, campsite of the unorthodox Owens during their research and where their book, The Cry of the Kalahari, was written. The valleys are a unique ecosystem within the Kalahari and one 
can expect to find large concentrations of springbok and gemsbok on the verdant beds of sweet desert grasses. Meerkat abound and there is always a good chance of brown hyena and some unexpectedly good birding. 

Deception Valley hosts huge herds of gemsbok, springbok, wildebeest and hartebeest, as well as giraffe, brown hyena, warthog, wild dog, cheetah, leopard, lion, eland and meerkat. Game viewing is best between December and April, when the animals tend to congregate in the pans and valleys, attracted to the area by the flush of sweet grasses that flourish in the ancient valley following the rains. Time will be spent exploring Deception Valley, visiting the Deception Pan and an excursion to the Piper Pan area searching for other intriguing desert species. 

DAY 13-14: MAKGADIKGADI NATIONAL PARK 

Depart for Makgadikgadi National park. You will drive along the A3 road which interconnects Maun and Nata. Upon arrival at the entrance gate, clients will have a chance to do a game drive before they get to their full set campsite. Arrive at the camp site, freshen up and then lunch follows. After lunch you will go for a siesta. After siesta have high tea and then resume your afternoon game drive within the park. Come back before sunset, have a shower and then dinner will be served. Time for bed will be determined by the clients. 

Makgadikgadi Pans National Park is one of the largest flat salt pans in the world. During the wet season (November to March), wildlife viewing is excellent, particularly when large herds of zebra and wildebeest begin their westward migration to the Boteti region. Species include gemsbok, eland and red hartebeest, as well as kudu, bushbuck, duiker, giraffe, springbok, steenbok, and even elephant, with all the accompanying predators, as well as the rare brown hyena. 

DAY 15-16: NXAI SALT PANS 

We will then depart for Nxai Pan National Park. It takes about 4 hours to reach the salt pans. We will bring packed lunches and snacks with us. Upon arrival, we will set up camp, and there will be time for you to relax and refresh yourself after the trip.

The game drive will include a trip to Baines Baobabs. Baines Baobabs were named after the famous 20th century painter and explorer who painted this unusual group of baobabs during his journey through southern Africa in 1862. The baobabs stand on the edge of a large salt pan that, although dry for most of the year, transforms into a massive sheet of water dotted with water lilies during the rainy season from December to March. During those wet months, water birds abound at the lagoon and create a spectacle of great beauty. We will drive back to camp in the evening, just in time to relax and take a shower before a superb dinner cooked over an open fire.

Made famous by Mark and Delia Owen in the book Cry of the Kalahari, we will camp here for two nights. During our stay here we will track the black maned lion of the Kalahari. African wild dogs, cheetahs, brown hyenas can also be found following their prey in this unmated wilderness. The black maned lion of the Kalahari has a dominant colour, its adaptation is very high and therefore it can survive in harsh conditions. We will camp here for two (2) nights.

 

DAY 4: CKGR 

Wake up at around 06:00 for a light breakfast and then head out in search of honey badgers and jackal whilst keeping a look out for lion, cheetah and wild dog. Return to camp for lunch, and a siesta. In the afternoon, a trip to the famous Deception Valley, campsite of the unorthodox Owens during their research and where their book, The Cry of the Kalahari, was written. The valleys are a unique ecosystem within the Kalahari and one can expect to find large concentrations of springbok and gemsbok on the verdant beds of sweet desert grasses. Meerkat abound and there is always a good chance of brown hyena and some unexpectedly good birding.

 

Deception Valley hosts huge herds of gemsbok, springbok, wildebeest and hartebeest, as well as giraffe, brown hyena, warthog, wild dog, cheetah, leopard, lion, eland and meerkat. Game viewing is best between December and April, when the animals tend to congregate in the pans and valleys, attracted to the area by the flush of sweet grasses that flourish in the ancient valley following the rains. Time will be spent exploring Deception Valley, visiting the Deception Pan and an excursion to the Piper Pan area searching for other intriguing desert species. 

Back to camp for dinner and an early night to prepare for tomorrow’s day out.

 

DAY 5: MAUN 

Wake up to have breakfast before heading to Maun. Maun is the gate way to one of the best wildlife experiences you will ever have, a safari in the unforgettable Okavango Delta. Maun has grown rapidly from its early days as a small rural frontier. A town with good shopping centers has now spread along the wide Thamalakane River. It now boasts hotels and lodges as well as car and 4x4 wheel drive vehice hire outlets. However, it retains a rural atmosphere and, as befitting its role as a hub of the Delta's safari industry, travelers pass through here on their way to the Okavango Delta. It is the southernmost part of the Delta and boasts a river tributary of the Okavango called the Thamalakane River. We will be staying in a lodge for a night on bed and breakfast basis. Lunch and dinner will be at your own expense. After checking into the lodge that afternoon you can take a scenic flight over the Okavango delta from Maun Airport over the Okavango Delta at your own expense. Keep a look out for hippos and crocodiles in the water ways. Observe how the water channels maender their way through the delta in ever changing paths as this dynamic water system evolves. The vastness of this pristine wilderness is breathtaking!

 

DAY 6: OKAVANGO DELTA 

Wake up to prepare your small luggage for the Mokoro Overnight Trip in the Delta. After breakfast we depart to the Okavango delta, here you will meet your local mokoro (dug-out canoe) poler who will serve as a your guide. This activity is conducted by local mokoro community guides but our chef and camp assistant come along as well. When we arrive the camp assistant will set up camp under a canopy of trees, have lunch, after that it is time for a siesta. You can also take a swim in the clear waters of the delta. Tea and coffee will be served before you take a walk on the island. Traveling by mokoro is undeniably the best way to experience the Okavango Delta as you explore the water ways, and take nature walks where you have the opportunity to track game and get a closer-up feel of this unique environment, here bird life is spectacular, on foot you are able to have a much more intense experience of the bush, particularly the flora and fauna that might go unnoticed. Guides are experienced in tracking animals and are able to point out interesting sightings of various types of wildlife. We camp in a remote campsite for one night.

You can relax and unwind in the camp, refresh and take dinner under the milky way starlit skies after which the guides and polers will narrate cultural stories and entertain you with traditional dances which display animal tracking techniques and gathering methods for traditional medicinal purposes. Guests interested in astronomy will be treated to one of the most expansive displays of stars on earth, before retiring in cozy tents for the night and drifting off to the sounds of the wild.    

 

DAY 7: OKAVANGO DELTA 

An early morning game walk will be available for interested persons, returning to the camp when ready to enjoy breakfast. After breakfast, the mekoros can be taken again to enjoy the channels, the intricate veins of waterways which interconnect the lagoons, or take a guided bush walk before having lunch or snacks. In the afternoon, the guides will take you in the mekoros to a safe location where swimming is possible in the waters of the Okavango Delta, followed by a chance to learn how to pole a mokoro using the gnashi. Time can be taken to relax and have a drink. After the bush walk, you can relax and unwind in the camp, refresh and take dinner under the milky way starlit skies after which the guides and polers will narrate cultural stories and entertain you with traditional dances which display animal tracking techniques and gathering methods for traditional medicinal purposes. Guests interested in astronomy will be treated to one of the most expansive displays of stars on earth, before retiring in cozy tents for the night and drifting off to the sounds of the wild.

 

DAY 8: MOREMI GAME RESERVE 

Have breakfast and depart to Moremi Game Reserve. Moremi game reserve is widely considered as one of the finest wildlife reserves in Africa. It has a diversity of habitats combining acacia forests and mophane woodlands with floodplains and lagoons. Here we will be camping at an exclusive campsite. Our drives will take us to the park’s most beautiful areas such as Third Bridge, Bodumatau and Dead Tree Island. Game is plentiful in these areas. Sightings include elephant, buffalo, giraffe ,lion, hyena, jackal and many different antelopes including red lechwe and the shy sitatunga, a web-footed antelope perfectly adapted to life in the swamps. Wild dog, whose numbers are so rapidly dwindling elsewhere, are regularly sighted in the Moremi Game Reserve. We will camp for two nights.

 

DAY 9: MOREMI GAME RESERVE 

Wake up at around 06:00 for a light breakfast and then off to a game drive. After lunch game viewing continues and before sunset guests will be taken back to the campsite where they will have time to refresh, have dinner and spend a night under canvas tents.

 

DAY 10: SAVUTI

Have breakfast and depart to Savuti which is part of Chobe National Park. It is called Savuti because a certain chief called Sauté used to live there with his tribe. Tawny eagles can be seen soaring in the sky as we go. The drive is a bit longer from Moremi to Savuti, however, the drive is much enjoyable as you will see lots of birds and animals on the way. The scenery is amazing and very African looking, with lots of umbrella thorn, acacia tortilis with giraffe feeding and many more including the most photographed bird, lilac breasted roller, a national bird of Botswana. You will not resist from taking a picture of it, it’s the most beautiful bird in Africa. We arrive in time for lunch; our exclusive camp will be set up and we will camp for 2 nights. Depart for a game drive at 3:30pm to the beautiful Savuti marsh where we will see vast herds of zebras and wildebeest and also have an opportunity to see pairs of kori bastards which are the heaviest flying birds. We get back to camp after sunset for a lovely dinner around the camp fire. Again the last guest determines bedtime.

 

DAY 11: SAVUTI 

We will have early morning tea, coffee and rusks then depart for a game drive along the Savuti channel. The area looks very unique as there are lots of tall trees along the river where animals like to hang around in the shade. We will also drive to the Savuti marsh where we may have an opportunity to track the cheetah because of the vast open grassland, their mostly preferred habitat. Get back for brunch after a long drive, have a shower, launder your clothes and have a siesta. Depending on individuals, sometimes some people update their diaries. At 3:30pm you will have tea and coffee then depart for a game drive, which will be our last game drive in Savuti. We will be back from the game drive after sunset which will have been enjoyed under the baobab tree (adonsonia digitata), an indigenous tree found in Africa. It is nicknamed the upside down tree because the branches look like roots when it is dry or doesn’t have leaves. Get back to the camp after a lovely game drive in time for dinner. 

 

DAY 12: CHOBE NATIONAL PARK 

Wake up early to take a beautiful trip to the famous Chobe National Park. You will notice when we drive the vegetation changes from time to time. Along the way you get mophane woodland and acacia tortilis. Chobe National Park is mostly dominated by the Zimbabwe teak, which is very good for making furniture. On the way we will see lots of animals until we get to Chobe enclave which incorporates five villages. We arrive at Chobe National Park around lunch. You will be camping for two nights. After a siesta you will go for an afternoon game drive along the Chobe River where we will see big herds of buffalos, elephants, pods of hippos, and prides of lions. Chobe is a unique park because during dry season big herds of animals congregate along the river. You will see elephants swimming from one bank to the other, buffalos crossing to Sedudu Island. Get back from a beautiful game drive, freshen up and have dinner.

 

DAY 13: CHOBE NATIONAL PARK 

Wake up the next day. Have quick breakfast before departing for a morning game drive which is longer. You will also have an opportunity to observe the animals from close up. Chobe also boasts two antelopes rarely encountered elsewhere in Botswana - the puku and the Chobe bushbuck. The puku, with their shaggy orange-brown coats and V-shaped horns, can be spotted grazing the floodplains. Always be on the lookout for predators, a repetitive whistle is used to warn fellow herd members. In contrast, the Chobe bushbuck is nocturnal and rarely forms groups of more than one pair. Rarely seen, this shy antelope, with its short, spiral horns relies on a sharp bark as an alarm call when threatened. Both the puku and the bushbuck have a number of predators to contend with; from lion, hyena and leopard, to African wild dog. Go back to the camping site after a beautiful drive, have lunch and then go for a siesta. At 3:00pm you depart for a beautiful sunset boat cruise along the Chobe river at your own expense. You will come very close to crocodiles and pods of hippos from the boat. We may see lions from the boat, and big herds of buffalos and elephants. We get back to the camping area after sunset and dinner will be served at 8:00pm. Time for bed will be determined by the last guest

 

DAY 14: CHOBE NATIONAL PARK

Wake up to a light breakfast. After breakfast you will be transferred to Kasane International airport for your flight to Johannesburg. Shake hands at the Airport and goodbye.

DAY 2: 

RHINO KHAMA SANCTUARY 

The Khama Rhino Sanctuary (KRS) is a community based wildlife project, established in 1992 to assist in saving the vanishing rhinoceros, restore an area formerly teeming with wildlife to its previous natural state and provide economic benefits to the local Botswana community through tourism and the sustainable use of natural resources.  Covering approximately 8585 hectares of Kalahari Sandveld, the sanctuary provides prime habitat for white and black rhino as well as over 30 other animal species and more than 230 species of birds. Here, you will get to track Rhinos by following their tracks and learning a few tricks about the wild. This activity is very interesting and is conducted in the mornings only accompanied by our qualified guides. The purpose of the activity is not only to find the rhinos, but also to learn some survival techniques and habits that these animals have adopted in their evolution. This activity starts at 06:00am and clients are advised to wear appropriate footwear and bush-coloured clothing.

 

Clients will head back to the campsite and will be served brunch. Later in the afternoon, there will be a game drive where clients will get a chance to see animals such as black rhino, white rhino, impalas, giraffes, black bcked jackal, steenbok antelopes, blue wildebeest, zebra and ostrich. When back at the campsite clients will be served dinner. Time for bed will be determined by the last client.

 

DAY 3: 

LEKHUBU ISLAND

Wake up early and head for Lekhubu Island immediately after breakfast. Lekhubu Island is a rock outcrop which was submerged in the waters of the great Lake Makgadigkadi which was one of the largest lakes in Africa. Kubu is a Setswana name for hippopotamus, while Lekhubu means a rock outcrop.

 

About 10 000 years ago the Lake Makgadikgadi dried up and Lekhubu was left, an island surrounded by miles and miles of white salt. Research indicates that climatic changes and earth movements over thousands and thousands of years caused this dramatic change to take place. Low rock walls on the southern side of Lekhubu Island date back to the great Zimbabwean empire. 

Packed lunch will be served along the way. Upon arrival, clients will be taken for a game drive and later return to camp for a shower and dinner before heading to bed.

During our stay here we will track the black manned lion of the Kalahari. African wild dogs, cheetahs, brown hyenas can also be found following their prey in this untamed wilderness. The black manned lion of the Kalahari has a dominant color its adaptation is very high and therefore it can survive in hash conditions.

 

The reserve has a variety of geological formations formed by changing climate over thousands of years. The Okwa River, now dry once fed the lake Makgadikgadi. Today this ancient fossil river forms a huge and beautiful valley in the southern part of the reserve, the open grasslands that spring of life with the coming of the rains support abundant game.

Deception Valley is the reserve’s most famous location. This is a long, broad inter-dune valley running roughly north–south; it's thought to be the bed of a fossil river. During and after good rains this is carpeted in luscious green grass that attracts dense concentrations of game.

DAY 2 & 3 

TSODILO HILLS B,L & D 

You will drive to Tsodilo Hills with a packed lunch that will be served on the way. Arrive in Tsodilo Hills and head for a guided walk on the hill then back to camp for dinner. Each morning, the day begins with a shower, breakfast, and then start your safari with a resident guide all the way to the hills to do rock climbing. Tsodilo Hills is a rare and unique place with an atmosphere of intrigue and mystery. The word Tsodilo is derived from the Hambukushu word 'sorile' which means sheer. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is located in north-western Botswana. It gained its World Heritage Site listing in 2001 because of its unique religious and spiritual significance to the local people, as well as its unique record of human settlement over many millennia. It is believed that Bushmen painted more than 4500 rock paintings against the magnificent stone faces of the hills. The Hills consist of four large pieces of rock, rising unexpectedly from the dry expanse of the desert. The Bushmen referred to the bigger rock as the 'male', the smaller one is known as the 'female', and the smallest one as the 'child'.

The people of Hambukushu believe that their god, Nyambe, originally lowered their tribe and livestock to earth on the female hill. There is nothing much to see, especially game, but leopard trails are often spotted but not easy to be see as they hide out in the bushes. Steenbok, Kudu, and duiker are most common wildlife spotted around and within the bush. Bird watching is reasonable especially when you spend some time in the area doing your check list. Common birds species include Yellow billed Hornbill, grey louries, melba finches.

 

Activities which can be done in Tsodilo are rock climbing as a guided tour with the legendary bushmen who are knowledgeable about the history of the area. Later during the day, you will come back to the camp to have lunch as well as a siesta. Later in the afternoon, you will transverse and explore the area to have time to interact with the local people.

DAY 5

SAVUTI 

 Your safari will begin in the morning with a warm shower, have breakfast then you depart to Savuti where you will have the opportunity to see some of the game along the road. Your arrival time to the camp will be determined by what you see on the way. Upon arrival at the camping site, lunch will be served, then its siesta time. After a siesta have high tea and resume your afternoon game drive. Later before the sunset you will drive back to the camp, have a warm shower and then dinner will be served. Bedtime is determined by last guest. You will camp here for one night only. 

DAY 6

CHOBE NATIONAL PARK 

Have quick breakfast before departing for a morning game drive which is longer. You will also have an opportunity to observe the animals from close up. Chobe also boasts two antelopes rarely encountered elsewhere in Botswana - the puku and the Chobe bushbuck. The puku, with their shaggy orange-brown coats and V-shaped horns, can be spotted grazing the floodplains. Always be on the lookout for predators, a repetitive whistle is used to warn fellow herd members. In contrast, the Chobe bushbuck is nocturnal and rarely forms groups of more than one pair. Rarely seen, this shy antelope, with its short, spiral horns relies on a sharp bark as an alarm call when threatened. Both the puku and the bushbuck have a number of predators to contend with; from lion, hyena and leopard, to African wild dog. Go back to the camping site after a beautiful drive, have lunch and then go for a siesta. At 3:00pm you depart for a beautiful sunset boat cruise along the Chobe river at your own expense. You will come very close to crocodiles and ponds of hippos from the boat. We may see lions from the boat, and big herds of buffalos and elephants. Bedtime is determined by last guest.

 

DAY 7

Wake up early have breakfast and depart to Kasane International Airport where you will catch your flight back home. Travel safe hope you enjoyed your time with us.

Very little wildlife exist here during the harsh dry season of strong hot winds and only salt water, but following a rainy season the pan becomes an important habitat for migrating animals including wildebeest and one of Africa's biggest zebra populations, Flamingos and the large predators that prey on them.                                                                                                                                                                                Wonderful morning and afternoon game drive inside the Makgadikgadi Pans.
