Let us customise this sample itinerary to make your dream safari

Overview

This 7-day itinerary combines two of the best safari destinations in Botswana, the Okavango Delta and the Chobe National Park. This is a specially designed Trip with a Purpose that contributes travel spend to the upliftment of local communities, while you enjoy unforgettable cultural activities.

The journey begins at Chobe Game Lodge, the only permanent lodge situated on the banks of the Chobe River within the Chobe National Park. It is an elegant, five-star, fully eco-tourism certified safari lodge where you will spend your days seeking out the Big Five and exploring the landscape by either vehicle or boat. There are healthy populations of predators here including lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah. You will also have an opportunity to visit the local pre-primary school which facilitates children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

You will then move on to Camp Okavango, where you will explore the Okavango Delta’s winding, reed-lined channels and thick riverine forests, looking out for large mammals including elephant, giraffe and buffalo. While staying at Camp Okavango, you will enjoy a helicopter ride over the Delta’s pristine waterways and visit the local village, Eretsa. This is where you will meet with the local community and delve into their lives and practices, living alongside some of Africa’s wildest areas and some of its wildest inhabitants.

 

Why Is This a Trip with a Purpose?

  • Visit Kazungula Children’s Ark outside of Chobe, a small pre-primary school that caters for children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
  • Early morning flight from Camp Okavango to Eretsa village, where a farmer will educate you on farming practices alongside wild areas, as well as talk about life in the village – a unique local perspective.

Itinerary

Day to day

Your trip begins in the city of Maun. On arrival, a guide will be there to greet you and transfer you to Chobe Game Lodge. An icon in the Chobe area, it is the only safari lodge that is situated within the Chobe National Park. Right on the Chobe River, a luxury boardwalk deck is where you will have unhindered views of this wild landscape. The lodge retains a nostalgic ambience and is set in a beautifully manicured garden. Put your feet up and revel in mystic African touches from Bedouin-style lanterns to big lounge areas.

When staying at Chobe Game Lodge, dedicated guides (mostly made up of local women) will take you on thrilling excursions to encounter some of the wildest inhabitants, from the river swimming elephants to the endangered African wild dog. You will join on open-sided 4X4 vehicles or on one of the solar-electric powered safari boats.

During your stay, you may also have the unique opportunity to visit the Kazungula Children’s Ark, a small pre-primary school that caters for children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Learn how people have adapted to living in such wild places and gain a fascinating insight into the different cultures of the Botswana people – the life and soul of the country.
