Large-spotted Genet Safari

A luxury safari exploring the Okavango Delta and Linyanti–Savuti, two of the best wildlife viewing areas in Botswana, staying at three top camps renowned for their guiding for a first-class experience.

Large-spotted Genet Safari: Summary

Large-spotted Genet in a nutshell

This nine-night luxury safari focuses on the Okavango Delta and Linyanti–Savuti, two of the very best wildlife areas in Botswana. The trip is split equally between three excellent camps – Splash Camp and Chitabe Lediba which are in the Delta, and Savuti Camp.

This safari will give you ample chance to spot the larger predators with cheetah, wild dog, lion and leopard occurring in good numbers here, along with a thriving elephant population, giraffe, hippo and all manner of antelope species.

The superb wildlife viewing is complemented by some of the best guiding in Botswana. In the Delta, the focus will be on game drives and taking to its lagoons and channels by boat and mokoro canoe. Savuti Camp is in a private reserve which means you can explore on night drives and walking safaris.

Fly between camps on light aircraft for an incredibly scenic bird’s eye view of the landscapes and landforms down below. The Okavango’s intricate waterways interspersed with palm-dotted islands are best appreciated from the air and larger mammals such as elephants and huge herds of buffalo are also often seen.

Splash Camp

Days 1-4

The smart Splash Camp, opened in June 2018, is located in a prime game-viewing area of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, bordering Moremi Game Reserve. The whole camp affords great views over a large pan, which attracts game all year round.

Chitabe Lediba

Days 4-7

Chitabe Lediba is situated on an elevated island within the private Chitabe Reserve, a fairly dry area towards the south of Botswana's Okavango Delta. Largely surrounded by the Moremi Game Reserve, it is generally regarded as good for game year-round – and the camp's focus is solely on drives rather than water activities.

View full itinerary

Savuti Camp

Days 7-10

Savuti Camp is about 30km due west of the Savuti Marsh, and the famous Savuti area of Chobe National Park. It stands in the private Linyanti Reserve, which covers 1,250km² and has within it three private camps. In the north, beside the Linyanti River, the environment is like the Chobe riverfront: open floodplains beside the water, an adjacent band of riverine forest, and then dense (mostly mopane) forests stretching away south.

Various: from 30 minutes to half a day.

Low-flying, agile and offering superb views, helicopters are an ideal way to move around the Okavango Delta.You can use them instead of fixed-wing inter-lodge transfers or as an addition to other wildlife watching activities, and of course, helicopters can hover to allow that perfect pic, whereas fixed-wings can’t.
