The itinerary

Chobe Game Lodge - Deck

Chobe Game Lodge

Days 1 & 2

Once you arrive at Kasane International Airport, your guide will pick you up and drive you to Chobe Game Lodge, where you will enjoy a magical stay at the only lodge located inside the Chobe National Park.

Whilst staying at Chobe Game Lodge,  you will be able to choose from 2 daily safari activities: open 4×4 game drives or boating safaris. Look for big herds of elephants drinking, hippos swimming, and crocodiles resting on the riverbanks.

When not on safari, you can relax in the comfort of your family room and enjoy the views of the river and the wildlife from your private deck or take a refreshing dip into the swimming pool.

Boating safari - Camp Moremi

Days 3 & 4:

A light aircraft will take from Kasane to the Moremi Game Reserve. Your guide will be waiting for you at the strip. A short road transfer by 4×4 will take you through the wild areas of the reserve until you reach Camp Moremi.

Over the next 2 days, you will enjoy private game drives led by your expert guide. The Moremi Game Reserve is well-known for its prolific wildlife: lions, wild dogs, elephants, buffalos, different antelopes, giraffes, and varied birdlife. Additionally, motorboat safaris are available to explore the Okavango Delta channels and lagoons.

Between the safari activities, you can relax by the pool or have a siesta whilst the children enjoy camp based activities.
