Detailed safari itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Botswana, Travel to Chobe National Park

Welcome to Botswana! You can fly into Kasane airport or travel by road across the border from neighboring Victoria Falls.

You’ll continue traveling to Chobe National Park, where you’ll spend the night amidst the many species of wildlife. As you drive, the sub-tropical woodlands give way to lush, riverine floodplains where vast herds of grazing animals gather to drink.

Day 2: On Safari in Chobe National Park

When it comes to game viewing, Chobe does not disappoint: its home to the world’s largest concentration of African elephants and many other animals. Within the park, the wildlife you see depends on the ecosystem you visit—the Chobe Riverfront in the northeast, the Savuti Marsh in the west, Linyanti Swamps in the northwest, and the dry hinterland in between.

The Chobe Riverfront is a popular destination. Safari boats travel along the river, giving guest’s unparalleled looks at the vast herds of elephants on the banks. By mid-morning, zebra and a variety of antelope replace the elephants. In the afternoons, massive herds of several thousand Cape buffalo congregate on the riverfront. Where there are buffalo, there are predators, so look out for lions, leopards, and hyenas in action. In the water, large pods of hippos gather along the shore while African fish eagles fly over the river, hunting for their next meal.

Day 3: Fly to Okavango Delta

Return to Kasane airport to fly to the Okavango Delta and Moremi Game Reserve. Sitting on the edge of the Okavango, Moremi looks out over the floodplains with accommodations such as spacious tents on raised decks for peak game viewing.

Day 4: On Safari at Moremi in the Okavango Delta

Spend the day on safari at the Moremi Game Reserve, which sits on the eastern side of the Okavango Delta. The combination of year-round swamps and seasonal floodplains leads to unexpected wildlife and geographic features. Mopane woodlands and acacia forests give way to floodplains and lagoons. Most prominent in the area, Chiefs Island and Moremi Tongue lie in the middle of the delta. The bulk of the reserve—roughly 70%—is situated in the Okavango Delta, with only 30% located on the mainland.
Visitors to the area can expect to see animals year-round. Explore the waterways by motorboat to see thousands of breeding herons and storks. Head to the thickly forested upland savannahs to see rare African wild dogs and leopards, cheetah, jackal, impala, red lechwe, and other animals.

African elephants, giraffes, hippos, tseessebe, sitatunga, blue wildebeest, black and white rhinos, warthogs, and chacma baboons all call the area home. Several hundred species of birds also live here, including Pel’s fishing owl, crested cranes, the lilac-breasted roller, hammerkops, and sacred ibis.

Spend your days exploring the area on game walks and relaxing in the peaceful countryside. See wildlife on game drives and motorboat trips or relax by the swimming pool.

Day 5: Depart Botswana

Enjoy one more breakfast before your transfer to the airport to head home or onward to your next adventure. You can connect through Maun or Kasane airport, depending on your itinerary.
