Detailed Description of this trip:
The Botswana Explorer is a limited participation camping safari. Visitors travel to some of Africa's most magnificent destinations, like the Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve, Chobe National Park and Victoria Falls. Regular departures operate in both directions between Maun and Victoria Falls. Several of the departures have been set to facilitate combining the Botswana Explorer safari with the Kalahari/Okavango Venture (15 Day Parks of Botswana - Tour Code KO).
This Trip is Recommended for:
Day 1-2 - Maun
Maun, Okavango Delta.
From Maun we transfer by small planes into the heart of the delta.
Here we take out "mokoro" (dugout canoes) to explore the crystal clear channels, islands and waterways, and undertake game viewing walks on the islands.
Our two overnights are spent at our Afro Ventures campsite in a private concession area, with a complement of camp staff to cater for you.
Day 3-4 - Maun
Moremi Game Reserve.
Return flight to Maun.
We negotiate the sandy tracks to Moremi - tucked into the north-eastern sector of the Okavango. The reserve was set aside in 1963 by the Batawana tribe, and is rated as Africa’s most beautiful wildlife sanctuary. Our days are spent on extensive game viewing drives.
Camping out in Moremi Game Reserve.
Day 5-8 - Savuti
Chobe National Park.
We travel up to Savute and spend two nights camped next to the dry Savute Channel.
From November to July huge animal concentrations are attracted to this area, and Savute is excellent for lion and other predator viewing.
From Savute we move up to northern Chobe and camp for two nights at Serondela on the Chobe river. This is the heart of elephant country and here we have an opportunity to spend many hours watching the huge herds in and around the waters of the Chobe River. Northern Chobe has beautiful scenery and magnificent sunsets, with a large variety of bird and animal life.
At certain times of the year we may overnight at different areas of Chobe National Park. Camping in Chobe National Park.
