Moremi Game Reserve, the Okavango Delta, and Chobe National Park

Overview

On this signature WT adventure—one of the last true mobile safaris in southern Africa—we enjoy a staggering abundance of wildlife encounters as we track game by 4WD vehicle, riverboat, and, a Botswana specialty, mokoro (dugout canoe) in some of southern Africa’s most alluring landscapes. The vast savannas and woodlands of Chobe National Park, home to the world’s largest herds of elephants; the ornithologist’s paradise of the Okavango Delta, an exquisite wetland of lagoons and islands; the amazing spectacle of Victoria Falls—our safari is the way to experience Botswana’s wonders, topped by a combination of lovely lodges and private mobile tented camps. No one else gets you this close to the action—and in such comfort! And since Botswana has so much to offer, we’ve created several seasonal expeditions to experience the full spectrum of its enchantments. Join us on safari and experience a rare connection with the natural world.

Itinerary at a Glance

Days 1-3
Moremi Game Reserve / Private Camp

Moremi, in the northeastern portion of the Okavango Delta, is an exquisite wetland of lagoons and islands. Explore by open vehicle and by boat, looking for tsessebes, Burchell’s zebras, ostriches, and predators including lions, wild dogs, and spotted hyenas. Our ruggedly comfortable mobile camp (you’ll even have your own tent steward) sits on the edge of mopane forests in a lovely setting of secret pools and open grasslands with no one else around.

Days 4-5
Okavango Delta / Xugana Lodge

Xugana Lodge offers comfortable accommodations in reed-and-thatch chalets overlooking a tranquil lagoon in a remote western corner of the Okavango Delta. Our explorations on foot, by motorboat, and aboard a mokoro canoe take you in search of an amazing array of birdlife and animals including lechwe and the shy sitatunga, both semi-aquatic antelopes.

Days 6-10
Chobe National Park / Private Camp / Livingstone

A charter flight whisks you to Chobe, a legendary elephant refuge, with by far the single largest concentration of elephants in the world. Unforgettable moments here include golden-red sunsets along the Chobe River, thousands of elephants browsing in thick acacia woodlands, buffalo herds on open plains, and the cry of the African fish eagle piercing the air. Depart on Day 10 via Livingstone, Zambia—or extend your adventure at Victoria Falls, where the mile-wide Zambezi River drops 300 feet into a sheer chasm to create its thundering cascade.
