    Itinerary

    Day 1:   Kasane

    Upon arrival at Kasane Airport the lodge representatives will be waiting to transfer you through to your accommodation where you will be spending the next three nights. The only permanent game lodge situated within the famous Chobe National Park, Chobe Game Lodge is Botswana's premier venue for guests looking for a perfect base from which to explore the National Park and the Chobe River. Full ecotourism certification by Botswana Tourism Organisation. Chobe Game Lodge has 47 rooms, all of which are river facing and air-conditioned, featuring overhead fans, complimentary mini bar, en-suite bathrooms and a private terrace. For those guests who demand the ultimate in exclusivity, the Lodge has four river-view suites, each with its own plunge pool and separate lounge area. This deck is the perfect place to relax or explore during your spare time at the lodge, with excellent game viewing, bar facilities, toilets and plenty of areas to just sit back and watch the sunset or the Chobe wildlife parade.

    Enjoy an afternoon game activity before returning to the lodge for a sumptuous dinner.


    Day 2:  Okavango Delta 

    Chobe Game Lodge offers a choice of land or water-based activities and the most complete game experience in the Chobe National Park. Early-morning and late-afternoon game drives are conducted by the expert guides in open-sided 4x4 vehicles to ensure maximum visibility of Chobe National Park’s spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife. Meanwhile, riverside game viewing may be done from small and highly manoeuvrable boats, perfect for morning or sunset cruises. Chobe's diverse wildlife roams in abundance – it is, for instance, home to the largest concentration of elephant in Africa. During the dry season these large herds, as well as vast herds of buffalo, congregate on the fertile flood plains along the Chobe River to drink, bathe and play. There are frequent sightings of lion, African wild dog, puku, red lechwe, sable, giraffe and roan antelope.


    Day 3: Okavango Delta 

    This morning after your last game activity and a delightful breakfast we transfer back to Kasane Airport where you will be whisked away by light aircraft into the Okavango Delta to Camp Okavango. Here you spend another three nights in one of the Okavango Deltas most outstanding lodges. Botswana's magnificent Okavango Delta situated within the heart of the newly declared World Heritage site, is the world's largest inland delta, and is a maze of deep lagoons, large lakes and hidden, meandering channels.  

    To ensure a peaceful and genuine safari experience, Camp Okavango accommodates just twenty-four guests.  There are eleven intimate Safari suites and one Family suite consisting of two bedrooms and each with an en-suite bathroom.  Each of the guest suites have been built on individual raised Saligna platforms and set beneath the thick Okavango Delta vegetation. The en-suite bathrooms have double vanities, double shower and a separate water closet (with a view). The stack away sliding doors open onto a private open-air viewing deck offering beautiful views over the Okavango Delta. This hidden treasure, in the heart of the permanent Okavango Delta, assures its guests of an unparalleled year-round water wilderness experience.


    Day 4: Okavango Delta 

    Water-based activities are conducted by experienced professional guides who will expertly navigate guests through the many meandering, reed-lined waterways. Roam the vast expanses of water from the comfort of a modern motorboat or explore the intricacies of the Okavango Delta the quiet old-fashioned way, in the traditional mokoro (dugout canoe).

    For those wanting to get a little closer to nature, guided bush walks are conducted on a number of the nearby islands, offering an opportunity to track some of the larger land-based species that inhabit this water wilderness. Birding opportunities are outstanding and anglers may put their skill against bream and tiger fish.  Camp Okavango is a water-based camp and game-drive activities, using safari vehicles, are not possible.


    Day 5: Maun

    Today we say goodbye to the majestic Okavango Delta as we head onward to Maun International Airport by light aircraft where you can start preparing for your onward journey home.
