The 8 Night – Robedi
(8 Nights, 9 Days)
6 Nights Comfort Camping Safari in Botswana, 2 nights Lodge in Victoria Falls
Covering one-third of the Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve is undoubtedly one of the top wildlife destinations in the world. It is set within wildlife management areas, allowing free movement of wildlife across its borders. The Khwai floodplains contrast beautifully with the lush island vegetation of the Xakanaxa area. Herd upon herd of animals come down to drink from the Khwai River, drawing along predators from the woods. The bird life is exquisite.

This day is long, with the expected time of arrival at our camp in Savute around 1700hrs.
Day 4: Chobe National Park
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 Robedi stays 2 nights in the Savute area. In this time you will travel back many years to understand the dynamics of the Savute channel, the Marsh, and its dependent wildlife. Activities: Morning Game drives, Afternoon Game drives (all activities are in open safari land cruisers only)

With time allowing, we will do an introductory game viewing along the Chobe River. This day is long, with the expected time of arrival in camp around 1700hrs.
Day 6: Chobe River Front
The Chobe River essentially is the soul of all of the life found in this northern end of Botswana. In the dry season, there is not another place on earth that has better concentrations of Elephants, Buffalo, Sable, Hippopotamus and many more in one small area. It is truly a world wonder. It is then fitting to finish one’s safari here. The predator life is equally drawn to the riverfront as it follows the prey species to the water side. Both Lion and Leopard are frequently seen here.
