Comfortable mobile camps, utilising spacious safari tents with en-suite facilities, in Botswana's exclusive wilderness areas provide your bases for this adventure exploring the unique Okavango Delta and the extraordinary wildlife experiences of the Chobe, Savuti and Moremi reserves.
This safari through Botswana is led by an experienced and fully trained professional guide. S/he is very knowledgeable and will be able to name all the animals and birds you see as well as most of the plants, often adding tidbits of information that you'd never expected to discover on your wildlife adventure.
Whilst on safari in Botswana, you will stay in 4 x 4 metre walk-in safari tents with en-suite bathrooms. Each tent will be furnished with full-size beds covered with pure cotton linen, soft down duvets and pillows. Bedside lamps, canvas wardrobes, dressing gowns and grooming amenities will create style and comfort to rival those in some of Botswana's most elegant lodges. Each tent will have an en suite bathroom with flush toilet, hand basins, water jugs, mirror, towels, soaps and other toiletries. A romantic al fresco bucket shower is filled at your request with water heated over the camp fire.
In the central area, a much larger marquee tent with metal and canvas camp chairs is set up to provide shade and sheltered dining in the unlikely event of rain. Delicious three-course meals are prepared by the camp chef and served on a beautifully laid dining table in the open, allowing you to enjoy dinner under the stars. When night falls, paraffin hurricane lanterns and a crackling campfire set the evening ambience.
Whilst in Zimbabwe on Day 1 of this safari adventure, you will overnight at the elegant Victoria Falls Hotel situated a short stroll from the Falls themselves.
The Okavango & Chobe Wildlife Adventure is conducted in a custom-built open 4WD safari vehicle that takes a maximum of 6 passengers.
For most of the safari, the vehicle used has roll-up canvas sides for optimal game viewing and is fitted with individual bucket seats, each situated by a 'window'. These vehicles are fitted with charge points for digital cameras and equipment. These will be suitable for using the standard two-pin charger that is usually supplied when you buy electrical equipment. If you do not have a two-pin charger, we recommend you purchase an adaptor. An adaptor to a South Africa plug will work in Botswana and an adaptor to a UK plug will work in Zimbabwe. The plugs on the vehicles are there to be used to recharge necessary items such as camera batteries.
Whilst on the Nxabega Reserve, on Days 8 and 9, the 4WD vehicle used will be open-topped, covered by a canvas sunshade. This type of vehicle also takes a maximum of 6 passengers, allowing everyone a 'window' seat. These vehicles do not have charge points.
