Safari trip in Northern Botswana

On this ten-day mobile tent safari which leads through northern Botswana, you will experience the landscape and wildlife of the impressive Okavango Delta and the species-rich Chobe National Park on daily bush excursions.


Arrival and orien­ta­tion in Botswana

Via O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg you will fly to Maun where you should arrive no later than 11:30 AM on the day your safari starts. You will be welcomed at Maun Airport and given further information for your immediate charter flight to Moremi Game Reserve. On arrival at the airstrip you will be met by your guide and transferred to the mobile safari camp in the picturesque Xakanaxa region. Here you can settle into your tent before setting off on a game drive later in the afternoon.


Activ­i­ties during the safari trip

A safari day typically includes one activity in the morning and one activity in the afternoon. On this safari, you will mainly experience game drives in open 4x4 vehicles. However, bush walks and mokoro tours in Khwai and a boat trip on the Chobe River on the last safari day are also offered. Each activity is accompanied by an experienced guide.


Most animals are most active in the early morning hours. Therefore, you will start your day very early as well, meaning that you will leave with your guide at sunrise to the wilderness of Botswana. On foot, by car or in a boat you will have the opportunity to discover the flora and fauna of the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park. Wildlife that might cross your path include elephants, lions, buffalo, leopards, wild dogs, cheetahs, hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, zebras and a variety of antelope and bird species.


In order to not be exposed to the blazing midday heat, you will return to camp in the late morning, enjoy lunch together and gather new strength during the following siesta. In the afternoon, after some coffee and tea, you will head out again into the unique natural landscapes. After certainly further wonderful animal sightings and possibly even a "night drive" you will return to your accommodation and have dinner together. Sitting around the campfire and enjoying a cold drink, the day finally comes to an end.


Accom­mo­da­tion during the safari

You will spend the nights in the mobile safari camp of our partner which has high wall 4x3m safari tents. These are connected to a 2x3m bathroom tent and a 2x3m covered area in front of the tent. The tents are equipped with solid base camp beds made up with mattresses, sheets, duvets and pillows. In the bathroom there is a bucket shower and a safari-typical long drop toilet. Towels are provided. For showering water is heated in a bucket over the fire. Showering can be cold, warm or hot at the guests' request. In general, safari guests can take their shower as they wish but in general, the guide withholds the right to limit water use and showering depending upon the availability of water. Oil/paraffin lamps are placed on the veranda and in the bathroom, and in the sleeping tent there is also a rechargeable LED light. You will be provided with meals and selected drinks each day of this trip.


Free time as a safari guest in Botswana

The siesta, which starts after lunch and lasts for several hours, can be used until the early afternoon as a break for napping, reading or for animal watching in front of your own tent. After dinner there is also some time left that guests can use for themselves.

    3. Chobe National Park

    Chobe National Park is the oldest national park in Botswana. It was founded in 1967, shortly after Botswana became independent from the United Kingdom. Due to gradual expansions, the park covers an area of more than 11,700 km² today. The region is particularly known for its huge elephant herds. Especially during the dry season the grey giants gather around the water holes of the park. In 2009 a new record was set when around 30,000 elephants were counted in Chobe.

    Among elephants, numerous other large mammals can be found here, such as lions, hyaenas, cheetahs, leopards, zebras, giraffes, hippos and warthogs. Furthermore, the rare African wild dog is at home in Chobe, just like the endangered bushpig. Chobe National Park is a perfect destination for wildlife and safari enthusiasts who would like to observe Africa's rich fauna in its natural habitat.
