Please note: As the safari starts at 1300hrs on Day 1 you will need to pre-night in Chobe/Kasane. Okavango exploration Safaris can assist with pre-safari arrangements.
An optional scenic flight over the Delta is available, but due to time constraints will have to be done on the day of your arrival, before the safari starts. If you are interested in doing this activity, please confirm with your guide when arriving.



Your guide will meet you at 1300hrs at a pre-arranged meeting point in Kasane and take guest to the camp site. You will drive through to Chobe National park, one of the best wilderness areas of Botswana which covers swamp and dry areas(D)

 DAY 2 : Boat cruise early in the morning. In the afternoon guests will spend time searching for the wide variety of wildlife and birds that this area is renowned for while absorbing the sounds and beauty of this region. Boat cruise in the early morning as the sun rises and in the late afternoon as the sun sets will be the norm.
Camping will be in private designated campsites with ensuite bush ablutions.D)



Chobe National Park, with its diverse and striking landscapes, will be your next destination. As you continue your search for wildlife, you will traverse the drier region of Savuti where bull elephants dot the plains. Savuti is very well known for its predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah and even African wild dog. The Savuti Channel has started flowing again after being dry for the last 30 years. The arrival of water is changing the landscape as well as accommodating different species which historically have not been able to survive in the rather arid plains of Savuti. This exciting event has allowed large breeding herds of elephant as well as buffalo to visit the area. Camping will be in private designated campsites with ensuite bush ablutions on every tent.

Beginning of 2015, both South Africa and Botswana officially communicated that they shall not require the yellow fever vaccination certificate for travelers coming from / going to Zambia. However, beware that regulations could change again without prior notice.

For all our safaris, it is COMPULSORY to take out travel insurance covering for: cancellation and curtailment, medical situations, baggage, emergency evacuation.

Okavango exploration  Safaris does not provide travel insurance.

Okavango exploration  Safaris can assist you to sign up for the Okavango Air Rescue membership. The service provides medical evacuation from isolated areas of the bush by a medically equipped helicopter and emergency doctor, ensuring smooth and swift operations. International insurance companies are not always familiar with the practicalities of dealing with emergencies in the Botswana bush, which can add to delays in obtaining medical care. Although the OAR membership is not compulsory and does not replace an international medical insurance and evacuation (which remains compulsory with or without OAR membership), we highly recommend to sign up for the OAR membership which is only BWP175 / USD 17 / EUR 15.

Please note that you will be required to provide your insurance details prior to your arrival so we can liaise with your insurance company in the shortest amount of time in case of an emergency. Required details include: medical evacuation insurer’s Name, medical evacuation policy number, 24-hour contact number of Medical evacuation insurer (must be able to phone it from Botswana – USA 800 numbers don’t work from here).




Departures are guaranteed as soon as 4 guests have confirmed on a safari. Maximum 9 participants
