Red Lechwe Safari

Superb guiding from three fabulous camps full of character in three contrasting areas for a fabulous safari to the Okavango Delta and Kalahari Desert.

Red Lechwe Safari: Day-by-day

More detailed information of what each day entails, and the various places you’ll stay on the Red Lechwe 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 Moremi by air & 4WD

On arrival in Maun, you'll be met and escorted to your light aircraft for the flight of about half an hour to Banoka Airstrip. Here, a guide from Tuludi will be waiting with an open-sided 4WD for the 15-minute game drive to camp through the lush Khwai Private Reserve.

Tuludi
Days 1-4

Tuludi

3 nights
Full Board & ActivitiesMoremi Game Reserve, Botswana

Tuludi opened in July 2019, and stands in the 200,000 hectare Khwai Private Reserve, bordering Botswana's Moremi Game Reserve to the south, and Chobe National Park to the east. Floodplains dotted with riverine forests stretch as far as the eye can see: the camp is set to have the most spectacular views.

Tuludi opened in July 2019, and stands in the 200,000 hectare Khwai Private Reserve, bordering Botswana's Moremi Game Reserve to the south, and Chobe National Park to the east. Floodplains dotted with riverine forests stretch as far as the eye can see: the camp is set to have the most spectacular views.

When we visited the building site in March 2019 we absolutely loved what we saw. Tuludi is going to be beautiful, offering stunning Okavango Delta scenery and luxury accommodation, and if it's anything like its sister camps Sable Alley and Hyena Pan, the staff will be friendly and attentive, and guides and camp management will be very good too.

We have high hopes for it doing well in the future - so watch this space. See our full report on Tuludi

Day 4

Khwai to Shinde by air & 4WD

The short light-aircraft flight west to Shinde gives you plenty of time for a final morning activity at Tuludi before you head for the airstrip. On touching down near Shinde, scarcely 15 minutes later, a guide will be waiting for the five-minute 4WD transfer across game-rich grassland to camp.

Shinde Camp

Full Board & ActivitiesOkavango Delta Safari Reserves, Botswana

From the moment you arrive at Shinde, just minutes from the bush airstrip, it’s clear you’re in good hands. The team here is one of the most long-standing in the Delta, united in their welcoming approach and their understanding of the environment.

Shinde Camp

From the moment you arrive at Shinde, just minutes from the bush airstrip, it’s clear you’re in good hands. The team here is one of the most long-standing in the Delta, united in their welcoming approach and their understanding of the environment.

And it’s an intrinsically beautiful environment: the tree-shaded camp looking out over open plains, backed by a mosaic of channels. As the dry season progresses, wildlife – both predators and prey – is drawn to the plains, creating a near-Arcadian spectacle. Less visible are some of the aquatic species, though the lucky few may spot the sitatunga. And the birdlife in this part of the Delta is a must.

Exploration – in the hands of a team of experienced guides – is there for the asking, on game drives day and night, motorboat excursions, gentle mokoro trips or on foot. Unusually, options are limited only by your energy – so if you’re up for three activities a day, go for it.

"Can't recommend this camp highly enough"

Alternatively, settle back and watch from the comfort of your traditional tented chalet, or the multi-level structure that culminates in an open-sided dining room up in the trees. Or add a touch of hedonism and make for the pool – with a view, of course. See our full report on Shinde Camp

Day 7

Shinde to the Makadikgadi by air & 4WD

After a brief transfer to Shinde Airstrip, today's flight of a little over an hour takes you from the wetlands of the northern Okavango to the oft-arid expanses of the Kalahari salt pans, perhaps touching down in Maun. On arrival, a 15-minute drive completes your journey to Jack's Camp.

Jack's Camp
Days 7-10

Jack's Camp

3 nights
Full Board & ActivitiesKalahari's Salt Pans, Botswana

Jack's Camp is spread out beneath a grove of mokolwane palm trees, with extensive views across Botswana's immense Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, dotted with patches of grassy savannah and photogenic palm islands. Arid for much of the year, the pans can be relatively devoid of wildlife, but be prepared for unusual surprises. Jack’s is one of Africa's costlier camps, and takes pride in its motto: 'Give them what they never knew they wanted.'

Jack's is a high-quality camp offering a unique experience in a captivating and unusual landscape. Do expect some luxury, romance and remoteness; don't expect electric lights or lots of big game. The close meerkat encounters, the archaeology (yes, really!) and the odd surprise were the highlights for us, and it contrasts strongly with Botswana's lush Okavango – so can really add to a trip. That said, Jack's is expensive, as are the transfer flights to reach it, so many question its value. Given its unique qualities, we find that an impossible question to answer.

Makgadikgadi to Maun by 4WD & light aircraft

There’s usually time for a final activity at Jack's before you head for the airstrip to board your light aircraft for Maun Airport. The flight, of around 40 minutes, takes you over the stark wilderness of the Kalahari salt pans before landing in time to connect to your onward journey.
