Bird Watching
Day 1
You will be met at Kasane Airport and transferred to your game lodge overlooking the Chobe River.
 
Chobe National Park is Botswana’s premier wildlife reserve and is uniquely situated at the confluence of the Zambezi and Chobe Rivers, where four African countries meet – Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia.
 
After checking in to your lodge, enjoy your first thrilling safari drive in an open-top game viewing vehicle accompanied by a ranger. Game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately in this vast game sanctuary and hopefully you will see elephant, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, antelope and other river-based wildlife today. Later dine overlooking the river in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide!
Days 2 To 3
Rise at dawn to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day and enjoy a thrilling open-top game viewing drive  into the great Chobe National Park. This region is home to some of Botswana’s most spectacular wildlife, as well as abundant bird life.
  
Chobe is home to vast herds of buffalo and elephant, as well as numerous other species which roam in profusion and diversity. During the dry season, vast elephant herds migrate from both south and north to congregate in their thousands along the Chobe River – the largest concentration of elephants in the whole of Africa! Also hope to see lion, leopard, cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons and many other interesting animals before returning to your lodge.
 
The rest of the morning is free to relax by the lodge swimming pool before enjoying an optional game viewing boat ride on the Chobe River to give you a completely different wildlife perspective. Tiger fishing can also be arranged on the river.
 
After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way as you have never seen them before – as well as the spectacular Southern Cross.
 
Please note: some lodges provide full day game viewing, combining boat rides with land-based game drives.
 
Day 4
Enjoy a final early morning game drive in Chobe National Park before breakfast and your 15-minute transfer to Kasane Airport for your light aircraft flight to Savuti.
  
You will be met at the landing strip and transferred to your lodge in Botswana’s premier land-based game park, situated on the vast Savuti Plains surrounded by open savanna and camelthorn trees. After settling in, enjoy an afternoon game drive with your ranger to view elephants and other wildlife.
Days 5 To 6
The Savuti Plains offer world-acclaimed game viewing – including the famous Savute lion prides, leopard, wild dogs, bull elephants, black-backed jackal, bat-eared foxes, hyena, cheetah, tsessebe, kudu, impala, ostrich and much more.
 
The summer rains bring a feast for lion, hyena and cheetah, as migrating zebra and wildebeest assemble in a chaotic pattern on the marsh. Cape buffalo herds arrive and migrant birds swell the resident population of over 300 different species, making this a bird watchers delight. Carmine bee-eaters perch on the back of kori bustards, red-crested korhaans plummet from the sky in daring mating displays and marabou stork roost in the trees whilst woodland kingfishers sing you to sleep.
 
Game drives are conducted twice a day (early morning and late afternoon) in open-top safari vehicles. Each evening enjoy Savuti’s enchanting sunsets, before dining overlooking the waterhole.
Day 7
After some final game viewing on the Savuti Plains, transfer to the landing strip for your
light aircraft flight to your game lodge in the heart of the permanent Okavango Delta.
 
You will be met at the landing strip and transferred to your Okavango Delta game lodge. Settle in and relax in this pristine water wilderness and enjoy game viewing under spectacular blue African skies before dinner.
Days 8 To 9
The seasonal Okavango Delta is flooded annually by the Okavango River, which flows inland from Angola into the dry sands of the vast Kalahari – never finding the sea, but instead forming a huge inland delta whose waters are absorbed by the desert.
 
Comprising 6,000 square miles of crystal clear channels, serene lagoons and a myriad of islands, the Okavango Delta forms a natural oasis that sustains a vast variety of wildlife and birds of all descriptions. The waters are at their height from July to October, forming an amazing wetlands ecosystem that is one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.
  
Activities at your lodge centre on early morning and late afternoon game viewing and bird watching, with experienced local guides. These include exploring the delta by mekoro canoe and river craft, as well as guided nature walks on the islands of the delta to track some of the larger species that inhabit this water wilderness - including buffalo, hippo and elephants. Optional angling for tiger fish and wild bream is also available.
  
In the evening relax around a blazing fire under balmy African skies, whilst exchanging notes about your game sightings.
Day 10
After a final game drive, transfer to the landing strip for your light aircraft flight to Maun Airport and your flight home.
