Journey Highlights

Fully Serviced Camping Experience

Letaka Tented Camp is located in the midst of Botswana’s wilderness. Expect comfort and exceptional cuisine.

Guided Walking Safaris

Experience nature on foot with your guide. These walking safaris offer a memorable way to see the African bush. Take a walk on private land that allows you to be more adventurous.

Chobe River Boat Cruise

Chobe boat cruises are one of the best ways to experience Botswana. Cruise amongst elephants that frequently cross the Chobe River, while on the water's edge, hippos and crocodiles bask in the sun.

‘Big 5’ Game Viewing

Safaris simply cannot be complete without the 'Big 5', and Botswana's natural beauty and steadfast commitment to wildlife and conservation offer a wide range of such options.

Itinerary

After your arrival at Maun International Airport you will be met by Mack Air for your charter flight at approximately 14h00 to the Xakanaxa airstrip in Moremi Game Reserve where you will be met by your guide.

Your first three nights are spent in the Xakanaxa region where you explore the surrounding wilderness on morning and afternoon game drive excursions.
From the air, only the larger animals are easily seen. Once you land in Xakanaxa and board your land cruiser, the smaller game animals can be found.
This is a good day for raptors with African Hawk-Eagle, Gabar Goshawk, Shikra, Little Sparrowhawk, Dark Chanting Goshawk, Tawny Eagle, Lesser Spotted Eagle* and Steppe Eagle* all inhabiting the mopane and adjacent woodlands.

  • Overnight at Letaka Tented Camp – Fully inclusive
  • All meals, fees, and activities

Moremi lies on the eastern extremity of the Okavango Delta. Habitats here range from wide-open floodplains, marshes, lagoons, papyrus fringed channels, woodland and savannah. As a result of the extremely variable habitat, the diversity of both wildlife and birdlife is excellent.

Moremi is amongst the best game reserves in Africa for viewing the endangered African wild dog. Xakanaxa is home to a resident herd of several hundred buffalo, at least 4 prides of lions as well as breeding herds of elephants.

The swampy areas of Xakanaxa are home to African Rail, Coppery-tailed Coucal, Black Coucal, Red-chested Flufftail, African Crake to name but a few.

Following an early morning breakfast, you take a slow drive through Moremi Game Reserve north-east towards the Khwai Community Area. The day’s journey follows this watercourse, passing the magnificent Dombo Hippo Pools in the morning, stopping to enjoy the scenery and the antics of the resident hippo.

The western mopane veld is home to mostly breeding herds of elephants whilst the eastern reach of Khwai is home to some impressive old bulls. Be on the lookout for leopard, cheetah, serval and lion and common predators along this route.

  • Overnight at Letaka Tented Camp – Fully inclusive
  • All meals, fees, and activities

The Khwai River forms a boundary between the reserve and the community area. Spend the following two nights camping at an exclusive campsite in the community area, exploring the Khwai floodplains on game drives both during the day and at night. Exploring after dark with spotlights offers you an opportunity to experience some of the nocturnal animals that are rarely encountered during the day.

You will also have the opportunity to explore the surrounding wilderness on foot (please note that this activity is seasonal based on rains and grass height, your guide will determine the safety of walking in Khwai). In addition enjoy a mokoro to witness Botswana’s flora and fauna up close.

  • Overnight at Letaka Tented Camp – Fully inclusive
  • All meals, fees, and activities

Head further north en route to the Central Chobe region, exploring the desert-like landscape of game drives. A fascinating day drive looking at some of the evidence of the Paleo-Lake Makgadikgadi that dried up some ten thousand years ago.

The Mababe Depression is a birder’s paradise. The nutritious grasses that grow on the rich soils provide excellent seeds for an impressive array of estrildid and viduids. Among these are the magnificently coloured Violet-eared Waxbill, Black-cheeked Waxbill, Village Indigobird, Shaft-tailed Whydah and Paradise Whydah.

  • Overnight at Letaka Tented Camp – Fully inclusive
  • All meals, fees, and activities

Unlike the vast majority of the country, Central Chobe is not a totally flat landscape. Large outcrops of volcanic rock reach up out of the Kalahari sands, towering over the endless savannah. These hills provide a habitat for a completely different array of small wildlife, birds and plants. The Savuti Marsh has been the stage for many of the most dramatic wildlife documentaries in Africa. The wide-open country, good ungulate populations, and particularly strong prides of lion and hyaena clans make for dramatic wildlife interaction and excellent viewing opportunities.

  • Overnight at Letaka Tented Camp – Fully inclusive
  • All meals, fees, and activities

On your final day on safari, leave Central Chobe early to travel along the Chobe River arriving in Kasane where you will stop for a picnic lunch before taking an afternoon boat cruise to end the safari. As today is a long day we recommend either spending a night or two in Kasane at Chobe Safari Lodge or two nights in Livingstone at Taita Falcon Lodge or Victoria Falls at Ilala.
