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

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