Short on time? This is a perfect excursion into the Moremi or Khwai concession (depending on campsite availability at the time of booking). Khwai never fails to surpass expectation with its beautiful meandering river, that creates the northern border of the Moremi Game Reserve.
Moremi Game Reserve, lies on the eastern part of the Okavango Delta. It’s varied landscape creates perfect territory for all species of game.
Likely to see: elephant, zebra, giraffe, buffalo, lions, leopard and wilddog
For those REALLY short of time, this is a perfect trip to see the world renowned Moremi Game Reserve. Departing at 6am from Okavango River Lodge with a light breakfast served as you enter the park at South Gate. Game drive along the south western part of the reserve, visiting Xini Lagoon and the area of Bodamatu with a picnic lunch en route before meandering back home.
Likely to see: elephant, zebra, giraffe, buffalo, lion, leopard, wilddog, hippo and loads of birds.
Optional add on: Return back to Maun by scenic flight from Xakanaka Airstrip.
Three days, two nights mobile safari with extra time to find the elusive leopard or to find the wild dog’s or maybe a lion kill. The longer time spent in the bush the more you will see and experience. Study the stars and listen to more stories from your guide. The bush is soul soothing, and if you have the time this trip is the most favourable – no regrets!
Likely to see: elephant, zebra, giraffe, buffalo, lion, leopard, wild dog, hyena, hippo, kudu, waterbuck, impala, warthog, lechwe.
Optional add on: Another night, why not? The bush is addictive!! We can create tailor made itineraries just for you!
Here you really can retrace the steps of your ancestors (still no pith helmet though!). Thomas Baines, an English artist and explorer, discovered ‘Baines Baobabs’ in 1862, which lie south of Nxai Pan National Park. This park is 140 km from Maun travelling on a tar road.
Nxai Pan, together with the Makgadikgadi Pan they boast the largest salt pans in the world. Offering a different landscape experience from the Delta. This area peaks in our green season, December – April, where wildlife is more abundant.
Likely to see: gemsbok, hartebeest, cheetah, lion, giraffe, zebra, jackal, springbok.
Optional add on: Why not combine this mobile safari with a mobile safari into Moremi/Khwai. Vastly different but complimentary at the same time this combined mobile safari highlights the best of what northern Botswana has to offer.
“First, we just wanted to emphasize how well organized everything was from the beginning to the end. Thank you for that! Also, we never lacked anything - food was very good and always more than enough, the camping equipment was superb (the bucket shower and uber-funny bush toilet were actually more luxurious than we expected) and tents as well as beds were very comfortable . We found Gideon to be an outstanding guide. Make sure to keep him! Pini took so very good care of us on both trips and grew to be a friend. Make sure to keep her as well! :) ” — Tim Schenider, 2 day Khwai, May 2016
