Tour Description:

DAY 1 – Arrive in Kasane transfer to Chobe  Lodge 

On arrival at Kasane, you are met by the lodge staff from the short transfer back to the lodge, where you will be spending 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 speciality of the area. 
 
Chobe Chilwero Lodge, Fully Inclusive
Chobe Chilwero is named for its panoramic views over the river, islands and floodplain. The 15 spacious and exquisite cottages each have a large sunken bath, indoor and outdoor showers, a private sala in a balcony or garden, fans and air-conditioning. The beautiful thatched main lodge comprises a stylish and contemporary lounge and dining room linked by spectacular viewing decks. There's also a secluded pool, library, wine and fine cigar cellar, spa and beauty therapist.

Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta is exceedingly beautiful. A jewel in the middle of the Kalahari Desert, the Okavango Delta is Africa's largest and most beautiful oasis - an isolated, lush green paradise with some of the richest wildlife in the world.

Accommodation is a traditional safari experience with eight luxury safari tents, all en suite, delightfully furnished in 1940's style with expansive views over the beautiful floodplains. The central lounge/dining area is a large open tent with wooden floors, antique furniture and oriental carpets.

DAYS 5- Charter Flight to the Moremi  

 After your final morning activity and a hearty breakfast, you flown by charter plane to your next game lodge situated in the Moremi region of the Okavango Delta.
 
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.
 
Chief's Camp - Fully Inclusive
Chief's Camp in the Okavango Delta, is part of the exclusive Mombo concession in Moremi, an area of unsurpassed predator sightings with a breeding pack of wild dog nearby, plenty of lion, cheetah and leopard - and now white rhino too. The lodge is tucked under a shady grove of trees, overlooking a seasonally flooded plain. Game activities are land-based, with makoro excursions mid-July to mid-September. Chiefs Camp also has a Euro-chopper (at an added cost) which can be pre-booked or booked in camp for game-viewing flights with special pivot seats in staggered formation to gain the best photographic opportunities.
