The Livingstone Safari: A fully serviced classic mobile safari in secluded bush camps situated in the famous Botswana Reserves and National Parks. A safari crew travelling in a separate vehicle erects the comfortable camp. A professional safari guide conducts early morning and late afternoon game drives. The guests will have time to relax and absorb the magnificent wilderness atmosphere of our secluded private bush camps. The group size is limited to 8 participants per departure to ensure personalized attention and to maximize comfort.

DAY 1: MAUN - OKAVANGO AREA OF MOREMI
Your guide welcomes you at Maun Airport and we travel to our secluded Livingstone mobile bush camp in the Moremi Wildlife Reserve.

DAY 2: OKAVANGO AREA OF MOREMI
The reserve is situated in the north-eastern corner of the Okavango Delta. It is a pure wilderness area of great beauty, rich green vegetation, palm trees, teeming with birdlife and a vast population of animals. We spend our time exploring the area by boat and 4x4 vehicle during early morning and late afternoon game drives. (full board)

DAY 3/4: MOREMI WILDLIFE RESERVE
We travel to the western part of the reserve today - the Khwai flood plains - exploring the area on the way. We uncover the secrets of this wilderness area on early morning and late afternoon game drives. (full board)

DAY 5/6: SAVUTE - CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
The Savute Marsh is the deepest part of the Mababe Depression and it is the only part to have filled up with water in recent history. Today the marsh is dry and attracts a large population of animals, particularly hyena and lion. The Savute channel has a fascinating history of flooding and drying up independently of good, rainy seasons and flood levels elsewhere, a mystery that has intrigued geologists for many years. Our guide takes us on game drives in the morning and late afternoon. (full board).

DAY 7/8: CHOBE RIVER - CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
After 2 nights at the Savute Channel, we travel northwards and install our bush camp near the Chobe River. Chobe is famous for its beautiful scenery and magnificent sunsets. The largest elephant population (+-30 000) in Africa lives in the region and we may have the opportunity to watch herds of elephant drinking at the river. In November 1855, David Livingstone, with his 114 porters, left the Linyanti / Chobe for the Great Falls east of Sesheke ; the falls of Mosi-oa-Tunya "The smoke that thunders".

DAY 9: VICTORIA FALLS / LIVINGSTONE
We travel to Victoria Falls / Livingstone - without doubt one of the greatest and most unforgettable spectacles, where the waters tumble down in continuous thunder. "Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight" - written in David Livingstones diary. (Hotel accommodation with breakfast)

DAY 10: VICTORIA FALLS / LIVINGSTONE
After breakfast we travel to the airport where the safari comes to an end.
