Botswana Explorer (Standard)



Standard 3 to 4 star | 6 Nights, 7 Days | Guided Safari

6 night Botswana Safari starting in Kasane ending in Maun

Conrad’s Review; 
This program is a great value for money option. The properties we use offer great game viewing and service for a very competitive price. All the lodges used are situated in prime game viewing locations and offer better game viewing than some more expensive lodges. This program gives you the ideal opportunity to combine the Chobe area with camps in the Okavango Delta that offer you both land based game viewing activities and water based activities. This program allows you to experience 3 diverse areas that encompass some of the best Botswana has to offer.
 
This program is ideal to combine with the Victoria Falls. I suggest you can start this tour with a stay of 2 nights in Victoria Falls at Illala Lodge (At an additional cost) and go from there to Kasane to start your Botswana program.

Tour Description:

DAY 1 – Arrive in Kasane transfer to Chobe Game Lodge 

On arrival at Kasane, you are met by the lodge staff for the short transfer back to the Chobe Game lodge, where you will be staying for two nights.
 
Chobe River
Chobe National Park lies in the northeast of Botswana, teeming with animals, in particular with huge herds of elephant and buffalo. Chobe's animal migrations follow an ancient pattern, only partly understood by man. However, broadly speaking, the game is drawn to the Chobe River during the dry winter season and spreads out to the open grasslands of the Savute marsh and pans during the wetter summer months. The Chobe/Linyanti river system is known for some of the best elephant viewing in Africa in the winter months (May to October), with huge herds of up to 500 or more at the end of the dry season. Lion are common, and almost expected, with buffalo, cheetah and an amazing variety of antelope often sighted. The river is alive with crocodile and hippo and marvellous birdlife, including kingfishers and bee-eaters. Languorous sunset cruises are a specialty of the area

Moremi Game Reserve
The Moremi Wildlife Reserve is protected tribal land, which forms the eastern boundary of the Okavango Delta. It is often described as one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves in Africa. It combines mopane woodland and acacia forests, floodplains and lagoons and this great diversity of plant life attracts the abundance of animal life for which Moremi is so well known. The largest island in the delta, Chief's Island, is located within the Moremi. The Moremi is famous for its predators, both of the mammal and feathered variety. Please note that night drives and armed game walks are not permitted here (given it is a National Park) but the superb quality of the game-viewing more than makes up for this. Game activities will be mostly land-based in the Moremi.
 
Camp Moremi, Fully Inclusive
Camp Moremi is shaded by giant ebony trees and overlooks the Xakanaxa Lagoon, the camp offers a diversity of habitat and animal life, which is unrivalled in Botswana.Here where the Okavango meets up with the vast Kalahari desert, ancient Mopane forests, open grassland and seasonal floodplains have formed. Trained resident naturalist guides will share their knowledge and deep love of the wilderness with you on game drives where sightings of wild dog, cheetah, leopard, lion, elephants and buffalo are possible. The famous elevated Moremi Tree Lodge is the stunning focal point of this camp and houses the luxurious main lounge, a wildlife reference library, dining room and cocktail bar, all cooled overhead by fans. Camp Moremi accommodates only 22 safari guests in beautifully furnished East African-style tents.
