Download Departure Dates: 10 Day Botswana Explorer Camping Safari

Day 01 & 02: Okavango Delta

Upon arrival at Maun International Airport you will be met by a representative, who will direct you to your light aircraft flight to Nxabega Airstrip, where a safari vehicle will be waiting to take you to the campsite. Explore the crystal-clear channels, islands and waterways by mekoro (dug-out canoe), and enjoy game-viewing walks on the islands.

Spend two nights at our campsite in a private concession area, bordering the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, with a complement of camp staff to cater for your needs.

Day 03 & 04: Moremi Wildlife Reserve

A short flight in a light aircraft will take you to Khwai in the North Gate region of Moremi Wildlife Reserve. The first protected area in Africa to be established by local people, the Reserve is rated as Africa’s most beautiful wildlife sanctuary. Spend two nights camping in the Reserve, with extensive and interpretive game-drives taking up your days.

Day 05 & 06: Chobe National Park – Savute

A long game drive (5 – 6 hours) takes you to Savute, renowned for lion and other predator viewing, where you will spend two nights camping next to the dry Savute Channel. Huge animal concentrations are attracted to this area and its artificial watering holes in the dry season.

Day 07 & 08: Chobe National Park – Serondela

From Savute, move up to northern Chobe (4 – 5 hours overland game drive), where you will camp for two nights in the Serondela area. This is the heart of elephant country and you may spend many hours watching the huge herds in and around the waters of the Chobe River on game drives or private boat cruises. Northern Chobe is renowned for its large variety of bird and animal life, beautiful scenery and magnificent sunsets.

Day 09: Victoria Falls

It is a short drive from Chobe National Park to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, where you can enjoy The Elephant Camp, after a tour of the Falls (entrance fee to the Falls is included in the safari fare). Enjoy a sunset cruise along the banks of the Zambezi river and view the spectacular scenery that is nature’s own sanctuary and home to the ‘laughing hippos’, ‘singing birds’ and the ‘snapping crocodiles’. This tranquil cruise offers exceptional photographic opportunities and delightful canapés and sundowners to toast the glorious African sunset. The Elephant Camp also offers close interaction with wildlife – in particular elephant at the Wild Horizons Wildlife Sanctuary. All guests staying at The Elephant Camp will have an opportunity to meet the Wild Horizons elephants.

Insider’s tips – The Elephant Camp
  • Indulge in a relaxing spa treatment on the viewing deck of your suite, followed by a daring outdoor shower while taking in the distant views.
  • Asks your hosts to arrange sundowner drinks (with their famous gin and tonic, of course) at the head of the gorge, whilst listening to the rushing waters of the Zambezi River far below.

Day 10: Departure

After a scrumptious breakfast at Elephant Camp, you will be taken to Victoria Falls International Airport by road.
