Spotted-necked Otter Safari

Spotted-necked Otter: In full

This Botswana safari concentrates on two areas in and around the Okavango Delta. You’ll spend 3 nights at Duma Tau right on the edge of the Linyanti Swamps, and then 3 nights at Tubu Tree - a large, dry island on the Jao Reserve with access to large acacia and mopane woodlands. This itinerary offers a superb overview of two of the main river systems in Northern Botswana and some beautiful environments typical of the unique inland delta in which they are found.

This Botswana safari can also easily be combined with a visit to see the Victoria Falls. See our trips to Livingstone for examples of the add-on options, and their costs. The trip is an individual trip, and can be tailor-made and adapted to suit you.


Days 1-3

3 nights at Savuti Camp (full board & activities) | Kwando-Linyanti area, Botswana

Savuti Camp overlooks the Savuti Channel - bone dry for decades, it started flowing again in 2008Starting from Maun, you'll be flown by light aircraft over the Okavango Delta to a remote airstrip on the banks of the Savuti Channel. A game drive through woodlands takes you to your base of the next 3 nights’, Savuti Camp.

Days 4-6

3 nights at Tubu Tree Camp (full board & activities) | Okavango Delta Safari Reserves, Botswana

The main area at <b>Tubu Tree Camp</b> is raised on wooden decking.A 40 minute light aircraft flight takes you to the Jao Reserve. You’ll then drive though woodlands and seasonal flood plains – rich with game and birdlife – and usually reach camp in time for afternoon tea and an afternoon safari activity. The game sightings from Tubu are generally the best in this reserve, and whilst mokoro and boat trips are usually possible when water levels permit, the focus here tends to be on dry-land activities, like game drives. So there is sure to be plenty to see during your 3 nights at Tubu Tree.

Day 7

You’ll probably have time for a morning safari drive before taking a light aircraft flight (usually about 40minutes) from Tubu to Maun – where your safari ends.
