Spring Hare Safari: Day-by-day

More detailed information of what each day entails, and the various places you’ll stay on the Spring Hare 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: Kasane Airport

Muchenje Safari Lodge
Days 1-4

Muchenje Safari Lodge

3 nights
Full Board & ActivitiesChobe National Park, Botswana

Set high on an escarpment within the Chobe Forest Reserve, Muchenje Safari Lodge overlooks a seasonal floodplain and the Chobe River, with Namibia's Zambezi Region (formerly the Caprivi Strip) in the distance. From this peaceful spot, about 50m west of the bustling town of Kasane, this traditional lodge has the advantage of running game drives in a relatively quiet area of the Chobe Riverfront.

Whilst the Chobe Riverfront as a whole is a busy area, Muchenje is in a relatively quiet location, and is one of our favourite lodges here. It won't be to everyone's taste and if you are looking for luxury, there are better options. However, for knowledgeable guiding, hospitable hosts, great views and a relaxed atmosphere all set within comfortable surroundings, Muchenje offers excellent value for money, and we're happy to recommend a stay here for a few nights.

Savute Safari Lodge
Days 4-7

Savute Safari Lodge

3 nights
Full Board & ActivitiesChobe National Park, Botswana

Perched on the banks of the Savuti Channel within Chobe National Park, Savute Safari Lodge offers a good location from which to explore the nearby Savuti Marshes. Comfortable without being luxurious, the camp enjoys views over the Savute Channel and its two pumped waterholes, which – especially during the dry season – attract vast numbers of elephant to drink in the afternoons and evenings.

Savute Safari Lodge has a down-to-earth feel and attracts an eclectic mix of guests who enjoy great hospitality, friendly staff and some excellent guiding, all in a top game-viewing region, particularly during the dry season. The lodge itself may not suit those wanting a more bushcamp feel, but the dining area overlooking the channel and nearby waterhole is a big plus. The region also offers a good contrast to the Okavango Delta, although a greater number of visitors than in the private reserves can make it feel less exclusive.

Pom Pom Camp

3 nights
Full Board & ActivitiesOkavango Delta Safari Reserves, Botswana

Situated on Pom Pom Island, on the western side of Moremi Game Reserve, Pom Pom Camp overlooks the reed-fringed Pom Pom Lagoon, which is covered with water lilies and popular with hippos. Renovated in early 2012, this nine-room tented camp lies in a very scenic area where swathes of floodplain grasslands are dotted with small islands of Acacia woodland – typical of many people’s image of the Delta.

Pom Pom Camp is a good, reasonably economic, option to enjoy the Delta’s scenic environments and great birdwatching. The game here is variable, so come for some of the Okavango Delta’s loveliest scenery and mokoro trips. And if you approach the 4WD safaris with moderate expectations you might just be surprised! The camp’s ambience is laidback and friendly but we felt that the service fell short of the attention to detail shown by other similar sized Delta camps. See our full report on Pom Pom Camp
