After a hearty breakfast at the campsite, you will leave Moremi Game Reserve and head for the Khwai Concession, a community-run eco-tourism initiative, and a superb example of conservation tourism at its best. As the first port of call for animals migrating from the Linyanti Reserve, the riverbanks and dry savannahs of this area are abundantly populated with roan and sable antelope, as well as buffalo, zebra, and giraffe. The concession’s elephant herds are widespread, as are the different predator groups such as lion, leopard, spotted hyena, cheetah, and the endangered African wild dog. You will have the opportunity to experience all of this during your stay in the Khwai Concession. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided on this day.

Today you will leave the Khwai Concession, and head to Savuti. Experience the contrasts of Botswana’s wilderness as you safari around this region of the Chobe National Park. The Savuti is famous for a river that suddenly stopped flowing due to shifts in the Earth’s crust. The river is now flowing again, and has made the desert landscape lush once more. During game drives, you will see several prides of lion, as well as black-backed jackal, bat-eared foxes, tsessebe, kudu, impala, and ostrich. During the summer months, thousands of zebra and other antelope species migrate to this area, offering a feast for the local predators. If you are here during this time of year, you will witness this incredible phenomenon. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided on this day.

On the 10th day of your incredible trip, you will have the chance to explore more of Chobe, heading towards the Chobe river front. This area, which is mostly covered in ever-green vegetation, is well known for its large herds of elephants and cape buffalo, which converge along the riverfront during the dry months. Lion, antelope and hippo inhabit the woods and lagoons around Linyanti Marsh, so keep an eye out for them during your drives. The flood-able grasslands of the Savuti Marsh also attract numerous bird species, so if you’re a keen bird-watcher, bring your binoculars today! Enjoy a spectacular sunset boat cruise in the evening before heading back to camp. All meals are included on this day.
