DAY 1- 3: MOREMI/ KHWAI (North Gate
Camping [Lunch x 1, Breakfast x 1, Dinner x 1]

From Maun we depart to Moremi/Khwai, situated in the eastern part of the Okavango Delta, bordering the Chobe National Park on the south-western part of the Park. The Moremi Game Reserve covers almost one third of the Delta. The Okavango Delta is the largest inland river delta in the world and consists of pans, floodplains, lily covered lagoons, grasslands, forests of acacia trees, savannahs and dense Mopane Woodlands. With such a wide variety of vegetation comes diverse spectrum of wild life. Huge herds of impala and tsessebe are found in the area, while in the dry season large herds of buffalo, wildebeest, elephant and zebra flock into the reserve from the Kalahari in search of food and water. The rare sitatunga and lechwe antelope live in the papyrus banks of the waterways. Lions, cheetahs and packs of wild dogs hunt in the open grassland. The reserve is home to over 400 species of birds, including the African Fish Eagle, the Crested Crane and the Sacred Ibis.
Moremi Game Reserve is a wilderness paradise with great game viewing throughout the year. We will camp wild for 1 night at an exclusive campsite at khwai north Moremi Game Reserve, enjoying activities. The magnificent Khwairiver is the hub for some of the most outstanding wildlife viewing both on the Moremi and in the Khwai community area. The camp will be set-up upon arrival at the camp site. The campsite is where you will be having all your meals as well.
Here you will get to do 2 game drives,the first game drive you will do it as you enter the park and the second game drive will be done later in the day after having brunch around 1600/30.That is when you will get to go on your evening game drive.
From the game drive you will find your water ready for your shower and your dinnerready.You will have dinner at 2000hrs. After dinner you can relax around the fire with our staff or you can retire to bed.
We depart to Chobe/Kasane passing through Savuti which is part of Chobe national park. It is called Savuti because a certain chief called sauté used to live there with his tribe. On the way we will see migration of zebras and wildebeest which will be coming back from the Makgadikgadi salt pans after the rains. Tawny eagles can be seen soaring in the sky as we go. The drive is a bit longer from Moremi to Savuti, however the drive is much enjoyable as you will see lots of birds and animals on the way. The scenery is amazing and very African looking, with lots of umbrella thorn, acacia tortilis o bed.
Day3-5:
Arrive in Chobe where you will camp for 1 night. You will also have an opportunity to observe the animals close. Chobe also boasts two antelopes rarely encountered elsewhere in Botswana - the puku and the Chobe bushbuck. The puku, with their shaggy orange-brown coats and V-shaped horns, can be spotted grazing the floodplains. Always on the lookout for predators, a repetitive whistle is used to warn fellow herd members. In contrast, the Chobe bushbuck is nocturnal and rarely forms groups of more than one pair. Rarely seen, this shy antelope, with its short, spiral horns relies on a sharp bark as an alarm call when threatened. Both the puku and the bushbuck have a number of predators to contend with, from lion, hyena and leopard, to African wild dog,
With an incredible wealth of species, Chobe is a heaven for birding enthusiasts. Striking colonies of carmine bee-eaters build their nests in the exposed sandy banks of the river. Water birds, including many species of duck and the rare red-billed pratincole can be spotted in their thousands, and guinea fowl and francolin dart through the grasses on the river’s edge. A quintessential African sound, the haunting call of the fish eagle can often be heard echoing over the Chobe River. With their striking chestnut and white colors, these intensely territorial birds challenge competitors to regular calling duets.
Upon arrival camp will be set-up and after wards you will have your brunch and then a siesta or go for a swim in the lodge you will be camping in. Later on around 15:30 you will depart to Chobe National Park for your game drive. You will return around 1900hrs and find hot water ready for you to take a shower then Dinner at 20:00hrs.
