Moremi Game Reserve and Khwai Conservancy
This week long adventure starts at Maun airport in Botswana, where you’ll fly over the lush Okavango Delta to Moremi Game Reserve. A luxury safari vehicle will then escort you to the campsite where you’ll receive a welcome drink – one of South Africa’s award-winning wines, craft beer or a famous local liqueur Amarula – and a briefing on daily activities and safety measures. Your glamping accommodation is a luxurious tent with a king size bed, and each tent has bathroom en suite.
You’ll have time to unpack your clothes and then head out for your first game drive in our top-of-the-range 4×4 game vehicle with an expert guide, where you could experience some of the magic of the bush and see elephants, hippos, zebras, giraffes, lion, leopards and even the elusive wild dogs.
Rhino were extinct in the Okavango, but both black and white rhino have been reintroduced in the reserve, although sightings are still rare. All the other Big Five are easily spotted – even the hardest to find, the leopard – are quite relaxed here. Wild dog sightings (a once in a lifetime experience) are some of the best in Africa. The best time to go to see this incredible creature is the middle of the dry season, when the area is most flooded, and food is plentiful, and you can find the dogs denning.
For those who enjoy birding, there are some 500 different woodlands and water birds. Moremi offers very good bird watching year-round, but the best time is during the wet months, from November to April, when summer migrants make the reserve their temporary home. Wildlife viewing is better during the dry months, from May to October, when the brush has died down and the animals are easier to view.
After this, you’ll travel by road from Moremi to the Khwai Conservancy to continue experiencing the wonders of the African bush – the stars, the silence, and the sunsets. Coffee and meals will be served en route to Khwai during the day.
Here we continue with the safari, but will also take you on a Mokoro excursion and a night drive in the brisk evening air to experience the activities of the nocturnal animals.
