Day 3 & 4: Chobe National Park

This morning you will be picked up for the road and boat transfer to Chobe Chilwero Lodge, set in a private reserve at Chobe National Park where you will begin your African safari. Covering an area of about 4,250 square miles, the park is the third largest game park/reserve in the Botswana. The Chobe River forms the northern border and in the southwest the park borders on the Moremi Reserve. The park consists of four main regions, each with its own types of vegetation and geological features. The area in the Chobe River flood plain is known as the Serondela region and is famous for its huge herds of elephant and buffalo. Hundreds of the huge animals can be seen coming down to drink at the river in the dry season. Enjoy thrilling guided game drives in open-sided 4X4 safari vehicles that bring you to the heart of Africa’s largest concentration of elephants, as well as hippos, buffalo, antelope, lions and other creatures that gather on the banks of the Chobe River. Or join one of the acclaimed guides on a wondrous water safari on specially adapted motorboats. Because this is a national park, no walking or night drives are allowed.

Two nights at Chobe Chilwero. All meals and local drinks included.

Day 5 & 6: Okavango Delta

You will be transferred to the Kasane airport today to meet your light aircraft over the Okavango Delta to your first safari camp in this aquatic wonderland. The location of Stanley’s Camp offers some of the best game viewing in the Okavango, including the rare and elusive wild dog. Explore on mokoro canoe excursions (subject to water levels), exclusive bush dinners, and game drives in customized, open 4 x 4 safari vehicles – including night drives. Guests also have the exclusive option of walking safaris with an armed professional guide.

Stanley's Camp

Two nights at Stanley's Camp. All meals, drinks, laundry and game activities are included; elephant experiences are on own account.

Walking with Elephants

A optional activity at Stanley's Camp is the remarkable opportunity to walk with a small herd of elephants in the wild. Jabu, Thembi and Morula are African elephants that were orphaned nearby and adopted by Doug and Sandi Groves. The elephants 'take' guests on long walks, foraging in the area in absolute safety. They show travelers how they look for food, strip leaves from branches with their long trunks and take showers in the lagoons of the delta. What better guide to the African bush than a fully-grown African elephant? Even Botswana's famously brilliant guides bow to these elephants' innate knowledge and bush-sense. This activity includes a leisurely paced walk with a trio of semi-habituated elephants, observing and interacting with them, and a picnic lunch in their company.

Day 7, 8 & 9: Okavango Delta

Today you will be transferred by light aircraft to Chief's Island, one of the many islands created by the seasonal floodwaters of the Okavango in the exclusive Mombo Concession of the Moremi Game Reserve. This region is known as the “predator capital” of Africa and is considered to have the finest game viewing in Botswana including the Big Five. The island was named after Chief Moremi, the hereditary king of the area who used the lands as his royal hunting grounds. The vast number of animals who congregate here make it easy to understand why the area was put aside for the chief. It was Moremi's people, the Tawana, who turned it into a reserve where animals are protected. Activities include safari game drives & seasonal mokoro excursions, subject to water levels.

Chief's Camp

Three nights at Chief's Camp. All meals, local drinks and game activities are included.

Day 10: Depart

Enjoy one last breakfast in the Botswana wilderness today and perhaps one more safari activity before being transferred back to the airstrip for the flight Maun and your onward connections in Southern Africa or on home. Breakfast.
