“THE ELEPHANT TRAIL”
Day 1. Sedia Hotel , Maun
Arrive in Maun , the safari capital of Botswana, and overnight in the Sedia Hotel on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis.
Days 2 & 3. Xakanaxa - Moremi Game Reserve
We depart Maun and travel the 5 - 6 hour journey into the Moremi Game Reserve which is situated in the Okavango Delta. Here we will camp in a private campsite in the heart of the waterways of the Okavango Delta. Day 2 takes us on a boat ride on the main channels and lagoon systems of the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta. There is a great variety of birdlife along these channels , and mammals such as the elusive otter and majestic lechwe may be seen. If we are lucky we may even see an elephant cooling off in the clear waters or catch a glimpse of the shy sitatunga. We usually spend most of the day out so we will pack a picnic lunch to be enjoyed in a shady spot in this picturesque part of Moremi. In the evening we return to camp for warm shower and a hearty meal while listening to the sounds of the African bush at night.
Days 4 & 5. Khwai - Moremi Game Reserve
After enjoying our early morning breakfast and clearing our tents we start our journey to the Eastern most extremity of the Okavango Delta. The Khwai area is rich in habitat and wildlife. The animals are attracted to the narrow ribbon of water that provides for some spectacular wildlife viewing. This is an area where lion and leopard may be seen. There is a healthy population of plains game, including, kudu, impala, giraffe and zebra.
Here we will spend our days on game drives and will have a chance to relax and catch up with our diaries during the siesta time of the afternoon of day 5.
Days 6 & 7. Savuti - Chobe National Park
Today we have a 6 - 7 hour journey to Savuti- we will be travelling through wilderness area for the whole journey. This is a day that puts into perspective the sheer size of this wilderness area. S avuti lies in an ancient lake bed that is punctuated with small rocky-hills(kopjes), some of which hold ancient San rock paintings. Here we explore the Savuti marsh and river bed for the abundant wildlife of this timeless place, including its famous elephant and lion population. Wild dog are also regularly seen as well as a large variety of other mammals. Savuti is a favoured area of wildlife photographers and film- makers and many well-known wildlife documentaries have been filmed here.
Days 8 & 9. Chobe River Front - Chobe National Park
Today's journey takes us out of the ancient lake bed and Kalahari basin , through the teak forests that make up the north eastern part of Botswana. For a long part of the journey we will follow in the footsteps of famous missionary and explorer Dr. David Livingstone. We pass through some villages that are recorded by him in his books about his travels. The Chobe river floodplain is undoubtedly one of the greatest wildlife areas on the continent and one is sometimes overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of animals. Here we divide our time between game drives along the river and in the forest and a boat cruise on the Chobe River which is one of the highlights of the trip. We will also have some time to do some curio shopping in the village of Kasane.
