Journey Highlights

Okavango Delta

Located in the Kalahari Desert, the Okavango Delta is home to an abundance of wildlife in a setting of natural beauty.

Khwai Community Area

Without a doubt Botswana's most scenic location, offering an abundance of wildlife in the heart of one of the continent's wildest places.

Kasane

Located in the north-eastern corner of Botswana, Kasane is perfect for game drives, sunset cruise down Chobe River and a Day Trip to breathtaking Victoria Falls.

Mokoro Safari

A Mokoro safari is a relaxing way to get in touch with nature and come face-to-face with wildlife.

Itinerary

Upon arrival at Maun Airport, you will be met and transferred by light aircraft (scheduled service) to Oddballs Camp.

Oddballs Camp is located in the heart of the Okavango Delta, a world heritage site and a spectacular ecosystem. The Okavango Delta is the second-largest inland delta in the world and is famous for its breath-taking scenery and abundant wildlife. The seasonal floodwaters which are present from around May – September, transform the Delta into a myriad of waterways and floodplains. In the low flood season, October – April, there are still areas of permanent water within the Delta and wildlife becomes more concentrated around the last remaining waterholes. Whatever the season that guests travel in, the Okavango Delta is a destination that is a highlight on most safari enthusiasts’ bucket lists.

Oddballs offers accommodation in simple but tasteful Meru tents elevated on wooden decks to capture perfectly the delta views. Shaded by palm trees, the tents are all en-suite, with outdoor showers for some added adventure.

The main area of the camp is furnished with comfortable seats with viewing decks overlooking the sweep of the delta, a perfect place to relax in between activities over a glass of wine or just catching up with other guests and share your delta experiences. Activities are water-based, and include mokoro trails, and island bush walks.

  • 2 nights Oddballs Camp, Okavango Delta  
  • Dinner, breakfast, lunch, and activities

After breakfast depart via scheduled transfer by light aircraft to Khwai, where the next three nights are spent at Saguni Safari Lodge.

The Khwai Concession is a large area dominated by mopane forests on the north eastern edge of the Okavango Delta. The Khwai Concession is an 1800km (180 000 hectares) area, belonging to the local community, which is situated next to the Moremi Game Reserve. The area used to be a hunting concession but is now actively managed as a conservation area.

The local community now runs eco-tourism initiatives, to actively conserve the environment and manage the wildlife in the concession. The Khwai River flows through the concession – it is the first major water source that animals migrating down from the Linyanti concession encounter and there is always a high concentration of game along the river.

The area is made up of sweeping grasslands, riparian forests and floodplains. The floodplains are flooded most of the year and there are lagoons covered in blue and white water lilies. The riverine woodland consists of camelthorn, knobthorn, appleleaf and great stands of Leadwood trees.

The name ‘Saguni’ is a bushman name for Khwai, meaning “an area with an abundance of game and spectacular sights” and this lodge certainly lives up to its name. The accommodation consists of 8 Luxury River Tents and 9 Forest Tents. The tents are spacious and furnished in a classic style ensuring that time between activities is spent relaxing comfortably. Enjoy the area on thrilling day and night game drives.

  • 3 nights Saguni Safari Lodge, Khwai – Fully inclusive
  • All meals, fees and activities

After an early morning activity, you will be transferred by scheduled light aircraft to Kasane, followed by a short road transfer to Chobe Safari Lodge.
Chobe National Park is a true wildlife paradise and one of the best national parks in Southern Africa. It is also home to the highest concentration of elephants in Africa, experienced in its true enormity on the banks of the Chobe River. The Serondela area (or Chobe riverfront), situated in the extreme Northeast of the park, has as its main geographical features lush floodplains and dense woodland of mahogany, teak and other hardwoods.

The Chobe River, which flows along the Northeast border of the park, is a major watering spot, especially in the dry season (May through October) for large breeding herds of elephants, as well as families of giraffe, sable and cape African buffalo.

The flood plains are the only place in Botswana where the puku antelope can be seen. Birding is also a highlight, especially during the green season (November – March) when many migratory birds arrive in the area. When the river is in flood, spoonbills, ibis, various species of storks, ducks and other waterfowl flock to the area. This is likely Chobe’s most visited section, in large part because of its proximity to Victoria Falls. The town of Kasane, situated just downstream, is the most important town of the region and serves as the northern entrance to the park.

Chobe Safari Lodge is situated in Kasane on the banks of the Chobe River and shares a border with Chobe National Park. It is the oldest lodge in Chobe and was established in 1959.

Enjoy boat cruises and game drives within the spectacular Chobe National Park, as well as a day trip to the mighty Victoria Falls which is just a 2-hour road transfer away.
