Day by Day Overview

Collect your chosen vehicle and you will have time to stock up on provisions.

Days will be spent exploring the Moremi Game Reserve – road conditions depend on the time of year of travel so discuss with your consultant at the time of booking.

The drive up to Savuti from Moremi will be a long day but worth it. Explore the surrounding areas on the lookout for the incredible wildlife that calls this beautiful area home.

Famous for its large elephant population, Chobe also has plenty more to offer. Take a trip in to Kasane and hop on a boat to see the wildlife from a unique perspective.

Ensure you have checked the visa requirements for entry to Vic Falls based on your nationality. The drive from Kasane is an easy 2½ hour drive although the border crossing can get busy during peak season. Once in Vic Falls, you can fill your time with a multitude of activities from the must do tour of the beautiful Victoria Falls to the more daring options of bungee jumping and the flying fox.

Heading south you will have time to explore this remarkable 14,650km² park. There are various pans and pumped waterholes at which you can enjoy some excellent game viewing.

The road down from Kasane to Nata is tarred so it’s an easy drive of around 2 hours. Visit the Nata Bird Sanctuary, just a short drive from the road.

Optional Extension, additional cost of USD 180 pp:

A short drive from Nata brings you to the famous Aardvark that marks Planet Baobab Camp. Here the focus is on the fascinating Makgadikgadi Pans and includes an excursion to visit habituated meerkats. The drive back to Maun is around 2½ hours.
