Day 2: Maun - Khwai River

After breakfast we leave Maun and reach the Mokoro station after a short drive. From here, we will float in Mokoros through the thick vegetation of the Okavango Delta discovering a variety of birds and wildlife. Unlike other Delta’s in the world, it flows into the Kalahari Desert without reaching the coast, which makes it unique. After this exciting excursion we make our way to camp which is close to the famous Khwai River. We will enjoy dinner and embark upon a night game drive - a fantastic opportunity to spot some of the nocturnal animals that are difficult to see during the day.

Day 3: Khwai River

Today we spend a full day in the Khwai area. Enjoy an early morning game drive and sunset game drive, spotting a variety of game that frequent this region that borders Moremi and Chobe. Khwai is renowned for its large concentrations of mammals and it is not unusual to see many types of wildlife during just one game drive, including elephant, buffalo, cheetah, lion, leopard and wild dog. Birdlife can also be viewed in abundance with exceptional sightings of wildfowl and raptors.

Day 4: Khwai River - Maun

After having explored the Khwai area we now head into the famous Moremi game reserve known as one of the most beautiful and varied reserves in Africa with an unprecedented concentration of wildlife. The full day is spent in the unspoiled nature of the Moremi Game Reserve. After our wildlife experiences in the Moremi Reserve, we head back to Maun.

Day 5: Maun - Makgadikgadi & Nxai Pan NP

After breakfast we head on to Nata Lodge, which is close to the Makgadikgadi Pans. En route we will stop at the Nata Bird Sanctuary. The Nata River delta feeds the Sua Pan in the Nata Sanctuary and forms the breeding ground for a host of water birds including pelicans and flamingo in their thousands, transforming the shore line into a pink haze blending into the western sky. With a little luck you will witness this wonderful spectacle today

Day 6: Makgadikgadi & Nxai Pan NP - Chobe N. P.

Today we make our way to Chobe Safari Lodge on the Chobe River. Once we have reached the Lodge and settled into our accommodation, we enjoy the rest of the afternoon on a sunset cruise on the Chobe River. Here we can watch elephants, hippos, lions, crocodiles and a variety of birds and more without having to even reach for our binoculars!
