Itinerary Breakdown

Upon arrival at Maun Airport, you will be met by your guide and driven to Khwai in a customised game viewer, thus beginning the first leg of your luxury mobile safari. The vehicle is stocked with refreshments, and it is advised to have your cameras ready for possible animal sightings en route.

Arrive at your private camp, setup and ready for you to get comfortable and relax. Unfenced and open to the wild, the BOGA sites used are reserved for safari operators, ensuring an exclusive experience. Tents are spacious Meru-style canvas structures with en suite bush bathrooms, bucket showers, and pit latrines.

A campfire is lit and a scrumptious 3-course dinner is prepared over an open fire and served at the table in the dining tent, accompanied by a variety of beverages and good conversation. After dinner, retire to your luxury tent and fall asleep under the African skies.

Wake up call at 05:30 with strong coffee and a light breakfast before boarding the Land Cruiser and heading out for your first morning game drive in this famous safari destination.

Much the same as in Moremi, the next couple of days will revolve around exciting and unpredictable game viewing along the Chobe River and surrounding areas, afternoon snoozes, and some good eating at the luxuriously equipped campsite.
Our unfenced camps are located at the private BOGA or Hatab sites reserved for safari operators only, so the accommodation is exclusive and spacious, but animals are free to roam where they please. Enjoy the wilderness, and if you’re lucky you’ll be entertained by wandering elephant, impala, kudu, buffalo, and particularly hyena at night!
