Day 1–3 Chobe Bush Lodge/Chobe Safari Lodge

Chobe National Park is the second largest national park in Botswana covering 10,566sq km, and has one of the greatest concentrations of game found on the African continent in a region ruled by animals. The abundance of wildlife and the true African nature of the region, offers a safari experience of a lifetime. Your adventure starts in Kasane where you’ll be based for 3 nights. During your stay join a morning game drive (activities shared) exploring the riverfront and Chobe National Park in an open safari vehicle watching out for predators such as lion and hyena. This afternoon head out on a sunset boat cruise along the riverfront, you’re guaranteed to see plenty of elephants as they cross the river and frolic in the water – after all Chobe and surrounds is home to one of the densest populations of this pachyderm.

Day 4&5 Planet Baobab

Your destination today is Planet Baobab. this unique and funky camp is situated just off the main Nata to Maun road, bordering the extensive Makgadikgadi Pans system and there’s a startling change of landscape. Your time here includes the first night in a simple Bakalanga Hut, following a Baobab bush walk and sundowner drink, and dinner. The following morning, after breakfast depart for a village and cattle post visit with a traditional lunch. From here it’s onto the pans for a quad bike activity and overnight trip on the Ntwetwe Pans with a braai (barbeque) dinner and sleeping out underneath the seemingly endless starry skies.

Board a charter flight to Pom Pom Camp, taking in the magnificence of the winding, papyrus–fringed channels that make up one of the world’s greatest wet land wonders, you will be able to see some of Africa’s most celebrated animals from a bird’s eye view 500 FT above the ground. The Okavango is an immense river that never meets the sea, instead its crystal–clear waters spread across the Kalahari Desert, forming Africa’s largest wetland wonder. The Delta is an abundant oasis amid the vast plains and pans of the desert that covers most of Southern Africa. Its waterways are a mesh of meandering and interception channels, creating a haven for Africa’s most celebrated wildlife and you can enjoy game drives, mokoro excursions and nature walks to fully appreciate this superb destination.
