You’ll drive via the village of Kachikau and then take the 4×4 tracks through the Chobe Forest Reserve via Gcoha Gate. On arrival you will prepare lunch in Savute. A wonderful feature of the area are the hills that dominate the landscape and are home to a few San Bushmen paintings - easily accessible on your afternoon game drive. A healthy population of leopard live in the hills, with the best time to see them at dusk or dawn. The Savute Marsh is a paradise for birds and animals. Camping in Savute.

Today you will depart Savute and drive to Moremi Game Reserve (4-5 hours). Local conditions will dictate your arrival time in Moremi, with a well-deserved lunch served. The afternoon will be spent on a game drive.

Today venture out into the Okavango Delta in search of game. You will take a mokoro (dug-out canoe) trip through the many channels and waterways. Your local poler will punt you through the water as you sit back and relax. The Delta is a huge inland water system dotted with thousands of islands that are a haven for a diverse array of wildlife. This is a unique environment where dry land and water collides. You will spend 3-4 hours in the delta and return to Maun between 2-3pm. Optional activities include a scenic flight over the Okavango Delta in a fixed-wing aeroplane or helicopter. Alternatively, a horse ride can be arranged. A scenic flight is highly recommended as it gives you a bird’s eye view of the Okavango Delta. Camping in Maun.

You may also explore Nxai Pan. The last night is spent sleeping out under a blanket of stars. Camping in Makgadikgadi.
