Aardwolf Safari

Two sister-camps within private concessions bordering Moremi Game Reserve offer access to excellent game, varied landscapes and a range of land and water-based safari activities. A great-value safari in one of Botswana’s best wildlife regions.

Aardwolf Safari: Day-by-day

More detailed information of what each day entails, and the various places you’ll stay on the Aardwolf Safari. Everything we do is completely tailor-made so while this is an idea which works well, we’ll always design an itinerary just for you.


Day 1

Starts: Maun Airport

Day 1

Maun to the Khwai River by air & 4WD

On arrival in Maun, you'll be met and escorted to a light aircraft. It’s a scenic flight north-east, of about 30 minutes or so, to the Khwai River. There a guide from Machaba will be waiting with an open 4WD for the 20-minute game drive through lush riverine vegetation to camp.

Days 1-4

Machaba Camp

3 nights
Full Board & ActivitiesMoremi Game Reserve, Botswana

Elephants peacefully grazing the Khwai floodplains in front of Machaba conjure up something of a safari idyll. The permanent water, fringing Moremi Game Reserve, is key to the year-round appeal of this classic tented camp, whose setting – backed by a narrow tract of woodland – attracts wildlife aplenty.

The permanent water, fringing Moremi Game Reserve, is key to the year-round appeal of this classic tented camp, whose setting – backed by a narrow tract of woodland – attracts wildlife aplenty.

Guests, too, are very much at home here. The tents are substantial, but still very much tents, their shallow porches opening straight out on to the sandy soil, with the river just beyond. This is no place for fancy decking.

Instead, rush mats and oriental-style rugs are spread across the floors, topped with comfy chairs and sofas and a mix of wooden furniture to create a decidedly homely feel.

While folding directors’ chairs and metal-framed beds add an authentic stamp, creature comforts are by no means lacking. The beds are huge – and supremely comfortable. Big round mirrors hang above his and hers basins in the bathrooms. White tablecloths rule in the dining area. And there’s a lovely circular pool with a view (and just a bit of decking).

"Again excellent site, accommodation, food and welcome."

To wander along the sandy paths – lit at night by storm lanterns – is to accentuate the feel of the bush. That sustainability is taken seriously here is a big plus. See our full report on Machaba Camp

Leaving Machaba mid-morning, you'll board your light aircraft for a scenic flight south over the Delta, landing at Qorokwe Airstrip after around 15 minutes. A guide will be waiting to take you to Gomoti Plains, a half-hour 4WD game drive, keeping an eye out for wildlife throughout the journey.

Opened in April 2017, Gomoti Plains Camp is located in a private, community-run concession (NG32) in the south-east of Botswana's Okavango Delta. Overlooking a tributary of the nearby Gomoti River, and surrounded by riverine forest with tall, elegant fan palms, leadwoods and knobthorn trees, this classic safari camp is in a beautiful location and has a good diversity of wildlife.

"The camp was excellent, and appeared to be well run"

Our expectations were high when we first visited Gomoti Plains Camp in October 2017 and we haven’t been disappointed yet. On our most recent visit in March 2019 we were still thoroughly impressed with the quality of the camp, the level of service and the diversity of wildlife in the area. It's a modern classic camp, well designed, comfortable and relaxed – and very well-priced for what it offers. Being in a private concession, the game-viewing experience is also relatively exclusive, making for a winning combination. See our full report on Gomoti Plains Camp

Day 6

Gomoti Plains to Maun by 4WD & light aircraft

There may well be the opportunity of a final activity at Gomoti Plains, before you head to the airstrip for the all-too-short hop back to Maun. Make the most of the brief wilderness views, before landing in Maun in good time to check in for your onward international flight.
