6-Day Botswana Safari: Chobe, Savuti, and Moremi Exploration

This comprehensive 6-day Botswana safari offers participants a journey through three of Botswana’s most renowned wildlife areas, providing diverse wildlife viewing opportunities and cultural insights.

Duration: 6 Days

Places to Visit: Kasane, Chobe National Park, Savuti, Moremi Game Reserve, Maun


Day 1: Arrival in Kasane – Chobe National Park

Upon arrival at Kasane International Airport, a skilled guide will welcome participants and provide a brief introduction to Botswana’s geography and culture. Kasane, with a population of approximately 9,000, serves as the gateway to Chobe National Park. Begin with a visit to the Chobe Crocodile Farm, which offers insights into conservation efforts for the Nile crocodile. The farm also houses a small museum detailing the cultural significance of crocodiles in Botswana. Proceed to Chobe National Park for an afternoon game drive. Chobe, Botswana’s first national park, covers 11,700 square kilometers and is famous for its large elephant population, estimated at 120,000. In the evening, take a sunset cruise on the Chobe River. The river forms the northern boundary of the park and is a lifeline for countless animals. During the cruise, observe traditional fishing methods used by local communities.

Accommodation: Chobe Safari Lodge

Day 2-3: Chobe National Park – Savuti

Distance: 170km/5-6hrs drive (depending on game viewing stops)

After an early morning game drive in Chobe, depart for the Savuti region of the park. Savuti is known for its predator populations and the now-flowing Savuti Channel, which was dry for nearly 30 years until 2010. En route, stop at a local village to learn about the Basubiya people, one of the ethnic groups native to the Chobe region. The Basubiya are known for their skilled boat-making and fishing techniques.

Spend two days exploring Savuti’s diverse landscapes, including the famous Savuti Marsh and ancient rock paintings at Gubatsa Hills. These paintings, believed to be over 1,500 years old, offer a glimpse into the area’s early inhabitants. Learn about the legendary Savuti lions, known for their ability to hunt elephants. This unique behavior has been documented in numerous wildlife films. Participate in a traditional storytelling session around the campfire, where local guides share folktales and legends passed down through generations.

Accommodation: Savuti Safari Lodge (2 nights)

Day 4: Savuti – Moremi Game Reserve

Distance: 130km/4-5hrs drive (depending on game viewing stops)

Depart early for Moremi Game Reserve, located on the eastern side of the Okavango Delta. Moremi covers almost one-third of the Delta and is the only officially protected area of this unique ecosystem. En route, stop at Khwai village, home to the Babukakhwae (River San) people. Learn about their traditional hunter-gatherer lifestyle and how they’ve adapted to life on the fringes of the Delta.

Arrive in Moremi for an afternoon game drive. The reserve is known for its diverse habitats, from mopane woodland to acacia forests, floodplains, and lagoons. In the evening, enjoy a cultural performance by local San people, showcasing traditional dances and music.

Accommodation: Moremi Crossing

Day 5-6: Moremi Game Reserve – Maun

Distance: 100km/3-4hrs drive to Maun

Spend the morning on a final game drive in Moremi, focusing on areas like the famous Paradise Pools or Xakanaxa Lagoon. After lunch, transfer to Maun, the gateway town to the Okavango Delta. Maun, with a population of approximately 55,000, has grown from a small village to a bustling safari town. Visit the Nhabe Museum in Maun, which showcases the history and culture of the Ngamiland region, including exhibits on the indigenous San people and their traditional hunting techniques.

On the final day, take a scenic flight over the Okavango Delta (optional, additional cost). This provides a unique perspective of the Delta’s intricate waterways and palm-fringed islands.
