FULL DAY BY DAY ITINERARY
Day 1 and 2 : Leroo La Tau – Makgadikgadi Pans National Park
On arrival at Maun International Airport, you will be met by our representative who will have a name board with your names. He/She will assist you with immigration and customs clearing then check in for your flight to Leroo La Tau, Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. At the airstrip a guide will meet you to drive to Leroo La Tau which takes about 30 minutes through the bush. Enjoy game viewing Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, one of Botswana’s most diverse national parks, also offers sanctuary to the second largest zebra migration in the world during the dry season when the water dries up in the salt pans, they migrate to the Boteti River.Leroo La Tau translates as ‘lion’s paw’, but although the surrounding area features abundant lion, zebra and wildebeest,it also boasts Chobe bushbuck, leopard, cheetah, brown and spotted hyena, impala, kudu, jackal, porcupine, genet and caracal, to name a few. In addition, there is also the possibility of seeing the rare white rhinoceros. Birding is also spectacular, from the rare wattled crane, to saddle billed storks, and a variety of vultures and other birds.


Day 3 and 4 : Camp Moremi – Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta
After your morning game drive and breakfast transfer to the airstrip for your flight to the Okavango Delta and a 20 minute drive through game rich areas to reach Camp Moremi, located on Xaxanaxa Lagoon. Guest activities include morning and afternoon game drives throughout the many different ecosystems that the Moremi Game Reserve has to offer. Explore the Xakanaxa Lagoon and its surrounding channels by boat for a chance to enjoy the picturesque waters of the Okavango Delta, with its kaleidoscope of birdlife.
Experienced guides will introduce you to a whole new world of wildlife; watch a Leopard stretched out lazily in the branches of a Mopane tree, herds of Elephant grazing under a canopy of green or a pride of Lions camouflaged in the long grass. Moremi Game Reserve’s incredible wetlands support a vast number of antelope, including Impala, Kudu and Waterbuck. The majestic Fish Eagle and vivid Malachite Kingfisher are frequently seen and even the rare Pel’s Fishing Owl makes an occasional appearance, to the delight of guides and guests alike.

Day 5 and 6: Savute Safari Lodge – Savute Area of Chobe National Park
A morning game drive will take you to the air strip for your flight over the Okavango Delta to Savuti, an area within Chobe National Park. Your guide will await you to take you to your lodge situated on the banks of Botswana’s fabled “Stolen River” the Savute Channel. Activities are organised around game drives throughout the Savute area in open 4×4 safari vehicles. Many trips will incorporate a visit to the Savute Marsh to give you a chance to see the historic presence of the Savute Channel at the marsh against a backdrop of teeming wildlife. Guests can also enjoy a visit to the ancient San rock paintings at Gubatsa Hills – a small hilly outcrop which forms a prominent landmark in the otherwise flat landscape.

Savute boasts the second-largest summer Zebra migration in Africa; its timing is determined by the rains, but usually occurs between November and December and again between February and April, when the Zebras move from the rivers in the north in search of the rain-ripe grasslands and full waterholes in the southwest of the park. The migration is always followed by large numbers of predators – the Zebra migration is a must for visitors.


Day 7 : Deaparture
After breakfast, and a morning activity time permitting, transfer back to the airstrip for your flight to Maun.
