Botswana’s Okavango Delta has many islands amid its meandering waterways but none is larger than Chief’s Island, which lies in the Mombo concession of the Moremi Game Reserve. The ‘chief’ in question was Moremi himself, who ruled this predator-rich part of the Delta in centuries past. On this tour, his historic home base will be the final stop on your 7-day journey through Botswana.
Your sojourn begins on the doorstep of Chobe National Park, where you can enjoy finding the park’s renowned herds of elephants from the comfort of a 9-seater game-drive vehicle or a boat cruise along the Chobe River. Seeing a matriarchal herd cross the water and splash themselves thoroughly with mud is a highlight of any visit to Chobe.
The middle part of your holiday is spent in Moremi, a lush wildlife paradise where sightings of leopards, lions and hyenas are not uncommon. This trip is fully inclusive and suits travellers who have limited time available but who want to be able to see all Botswana’s highlights. This trip can be undertaken from and end in either Kasane or Maun, depending on the rest of your schedule.
