Livingstone to Maun
10 days / 9 nights Serviced Camping and Accommodated Safari

Discover the true heart of Africa on a traditional-style safari in northern Botswana. Travel ‘off the beaten path’ into the bush to a land of beautiful scenery and abundant wildlife. Tune into the ebb and flow of the waterways, the seasons, and the migration patterns of Africa.

Highlights

Livingstone Zambia • Chobe River • Linyanti Private Concession • Moremi Private Concession • Okavango Delta Private Concession

Africa presents a landscape of constant change. Herds of game move with the seasons in search of water and grazing, and predators follow the herds, making for a wildlife ‘circuit’ like none other. On this tour, we will explore the vast variety to be found within Botswana, from the sandy savannah and stark land of the Kalahari desert, to the wetland environs of the Okavango Delta, to the grand elephant herds of the Linyanti. The ‘circle of life’ is readily apparent as you journey through the diverse landscape and explore deep into the bush.

Our camps are varied as well, providing you with contrasting safari experiences throughout this tour. We utilize a combination of serviced mobile camps as well as lodge accommodation, both of which are chosen with attention to your comfort, prime game viewing location, and a rich African experience.

You will tour with a professional, experienced guide who possesses both immense local knowledge as well as a passion for the beauty that is found in Africa. Many guides are also photographers, and all will be able to share some tips to take home photographic memories of your time on safari. In fact, the hardest part of this tour may be saying goodbye at its end.

Itinerary

Day 1: Livingstone, Zambia

Upon your arrival in Livingstone, Zambia you will be met and transported to Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Known locally as ‘The Smoke That Thunders’, Victoria Falls is 1,708 metres wide and drops 103 metres into the Zambezi Gorge. This is the largest falling sheet of water in the world!  This evening, you will enjoy comfortable accommodation in a tented camp.

Accommodation: The River Club or similar    Meals: [L, D]

Day 2: Livingstone – Chobe – Linyanti

We depart Zambia after breakfast and cross the Kazungula border into Botswana. At this point, the four countries of Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe all meet. We begin our time in Botswana with a boat cruise on the Chobe River, always a highlight among visitors to Botswana. A light lunch is served, and you are likely to spot puku (antelope), elephant herds, hippos and crocodiles in the water, as well as a large variety of birdlife.

In the afternoon, we will drive into the Linyanti region, passing from the river landscape to savannah and from forest to plains. As we drive, you will be able to see into Namibia’s Caprivi Strip across the Chobe and Linyanti Rivers. Just as we come close to Linyanti, you will begin to see the local game that inhabits this area.

Accommodation: Fully serviced en-suite tented camp Meals: [B, L, D]

Day 3: Linyanti Private Concession

This is a day dedicated to game viewing, both on foot and in our custom built safari vehicles. The Linyanti is blessed with a permanent water source, meaning that wildlife herds will remain here even in the dry season.

Accommodation: Fully serviced en-suite tented camp Meals: [B, L, D]

Day 4: Linyanti Private Concession

Today is a second day of exploration in the Linyanti. By now, you will probably have begun to notice the patterns and habits of the game as they go through their daily rhythm. In addition to large mammals, this is also a prime location of birds including the African fish eagle, hamerkop, and secretary bird.

Accommodation: Fully serviced en-suite tented camp Meals: [B, L, D]

Day 5: Linyanti Private Concession – Khwai Adventurer Camp

We will travel today on a light aircraft to our next camp near the Moremi Game Reserve. We will be lodging at Khwai Adventure Camp, located on a private concession just north of the Khwai River. The Moremi is world-renowned for its variety of game, and activities center around game drives and Mokoro canoe experiences.

Accommodation: Khwai Adventurer Camp Meals: [B, L, D]

Day 6 and 7: Khwai Adventurer Camp

We are on safari in and around the Moremi Game Reserve for two days, affording the opportunity for several game drives in custom built safari vehicles during both the morning and the evening. You are also encouraged to participate in nature walks and Mokoro excursions. In the midday heat, it is ‘siesta’ time to relax in the camp.

Accommodation: Khwai Adventurer Camp Meals: [B, L, D]

Day 8: Khwai Adventurer Camp – Xigera Mokoro Trails Okavango Delta

Another light aircraft flight today brings us to the Xigera (pronounced Kee-je-ra) area of the Moremi Game Reserve. Xigera is part of the Okavango Delta and consists of water channels dotted with small islands, making a marshy habitat for many kinds of animals and birds. Safari is possible here both on foot and Mokoro canoe.

Accommodation: Xigera Mokoro Trails           Meals: [B, L, D]

Day 9: Xigera Mokoro Trails Okavango Delta

We venture out by Mokoro today to some of the vegetated islands of the Okavango Delta where we will explore the islands by foot, allowing for close-up viewing of birds and game. You will be amazed at the contrast between the seeming contrast of the Xigera, yet the abundance of life that is found in the water channels of the Delta.

Accommodation: Xigera Mokoro Trails           Meals: [B, L, D]

Day 10: Xigera Mokoro Trails Okavango Delta – Maun
