This varied Botswana safari explores three different areas – the Chobe Enclave, a private reserve in the Okavango Delta, and the Makgadikgadi Pans. The itinerary includes a total of 8 days in three safari camps: Linyanti Ebony, Khwai Tented Camp and Camp Kalahari. This trip is a good option for families, as all these camps have family accommodation and cater well to children.
This Botswana safari can also easily be combined with a visit to Livingstone in Zambia or Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe to see the Victoria Falls. See our trips to Livingstone or trips to Victoria Falls for examples of the add-on options, and the costs.
This trip is an individual trip, and can be tailor-made and adapted to suit you.
Starting from Maun, you are flown by light aircraft to the Chobe Enclave, a private concession to the west of Chobe National Park. You'll be based at the small and friendly Linyanti Ebony for 2 nights. Explore the area on day and night game drives in 4WD vehicles, occasional walks with an armed guide, as well as boat and mokoro trips when water levels permit.
After your morning activity, you will leave the camp and take a short light aircraft flight to Khwai Tented Camp, in the Khwai Community Concession just east of the renowned Moremi Game Reserve. You'll be based here for a further 2 nights. In this game-rich reserve, day and night game drives, boating and mokoro trips are on offer. Your guide will keep a keen eye out for the numerous predators and large herbivores that frequent this area.
Your last 3 nights will be spent at Camp Kalahari in the harsh but fascinating environment of the Makgadikgadi Pans. A real highlight here is the meerkat experience - an opportunity to get up close to these exceptionally cute creatures as they forage in the grasses that grown between the salt pans. Other activities include a very good "Bushman experience", quadbiking across the pans (dry season only) and horse riding.
Take a light aircraft flight back over the Okavango Delta to Maun where your safari ends.
