“Siamo entusiasti del safari, John ha organizzato per noi. Il suo equipaggio ha costruito il campo con cinque stelle Ambiance (ottimi menù di 3 portate, tavole decorate con cura, letti morbidi, doccia e servizi igienici per tenda, ecc). John guida in sicurezza il veicolo attraverso ogni palude e trova paesaggi ed animali, di cui non abbiamo mai sentito parlare. Egli amorevolmente ci ha mostrato il suo paese e le conversazioni attorno al fuoco ci manca oggi. John, possiamo consigliare con entusiasmo come una guida!”
Translated to english: “We are excited about the safari, John arranged for us. His crew built the field with five stars Ambiance (excellent 3-course dinner, tables decorated with care, soft beds, shower and toilet tent, etc.). John safely guides the vehicle through every swamp and find landscapes and animals, of which we have never heard. He lovingly showed us his country and conversations around the fire we lack today. John, we can recommend with enthusiasm as a guide! “

Day 1, 2, and 3: Khwai, Moremi Game Reserve
Day 4, 5, and 6: Savute, and Chobe National Park
You are woken up early in the morning on day 4. After breakfast, we head out for game viewing along the Khwai River. We later leisurely head to Savute, with a picnic lunch along the way. Time allowing we may do another introductory game viewing in and around the Savute Marsh before we get into camp. This day is long, with the expected time of arrival at our camp in Savute around 1700hrs.
Savute is a small channel of water that breaks out of the northern water system called Linyanti that itself divides Botswana from Namibia (Caprivi). The channel flows almost due east and then cuts through the dunes or sand ridge that once marked the edge of a gigantic lake that linked the Okavango and the Makgadikgadi pan complex. The Savute Marsh has been fed erratically over the past 100 years, without any pattern in time, but obviously in response to floods and dry seasons, from different sources. When the channel flows, Savute is paradise in itself. Giant heads of Elephants, Buffalo and Antelope are common residents. It is perhaps when the river Stops or suddenly starts flowing after many years of absence that Savute is most dramatic.
The LeSome stays 3 nights in the Savute area. In this time you will travel back many years to understand the dynamics of the Savute Channel, the Savute Marsh, and its dependent wildlife. Activities: Morning Game drives, Afternoon Game drives (all activities are in open safari land cruisers only)

When Dr. David Livingstone first set his eyes upon the falls, he penned down in his diary “Scenes so beautiful they must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”, this was in 1851.
