Safari Itinerary Summary

Days 1 to 3

On arrival into Maun, Botswana you will take a light aircraft flight to Moremi Crossing a tented camp built on a palm fringed island surrounded by the Moremi's game-rich seasonal floodplains and overlooking Chief's Island. Moremi Crossing is a new style safari camp combining luxury with simplicity. This is a 100% eco-friendly development featuring the latest in solar and waste disposal technology.

Moremi is in the north east corner of the Okavango Delta and was the first wildlife sanctuary to be created by an African tribe and is named after Chief Moremi. The area includes Chief’s Island, a huge expanse of grassland and forest bordered on each side by two rivers. Perfect for game en masse.

It’s a year round destination with rewarding sightings of elephant, buffalo, plentiful plains game including red lechwe and so the predators are present in force: lion and leopard, cheetah, wild dog and smaller nocturnal species such as serval, caracal and the African wild cat. Last and not least, both black and white rhino have been re-introduced, making the Moremi a Big5 destination!

Days 4 & 5

Depart Moremi by light aircraft to Pom Pom Camp for a 2 night stay fully inclusive of all meals and game viewing activities.

The Camp is located on Pom Pom Island in a private concession situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta and on the head waters of the Xudum river system. The area lies on the western boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve and offers superb Okavango scenery and a true Okavango wilderness experience.

Days 6 & 7

The adventure continues by light aircraft flight to Chobe Safari Lodge for a 3 night stay including one guided trip to Victoria Falls.
Chobe Safari Lodge is situated in Kasane on the banks of the Chobe River and shares a border with Chobe National Park. Right on our doorstep is the meeting of four African countries: Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia. Chobe Safari Lodge therefore offers an excellent getaway location to Chobe, Victoria Falls or Caprivi.

The game you would expect to see in Chobe includes: Elephant, Cape Buffalo, Hippo, Giraffe, Red Lechwe, Puku, Kudu, Impala, Sable Antelope, Crocodile, Lion, Leopard,
Hyena, Wild Dog and Jackal.

Moremi Crossing is located near the most southern part of Chief’s Island, on a small palm fringed and treed island called Ntswi which is surrounded by the Moremi’s game-rich seasonal floodplains.

In contrast to the northern Okavango Delta where the waters are fast-flowing and the channels and view is enclosed by high reeds and papyrus, the channels around Moremi Crossing and its sister camp Gunn’s Camp offer far reaching vistas of the Moremi’s floodplain, grasslands and marginal woodlands interspersed with Mokolwane palm islands.

The central Mess area houses a large open plan deck that has spectacular far reaching views over the Boro River onto Chief’s Island.

This half-moon shaped area is built on different levels to give you the feeling of space. Dining room, bar and lounge is covered by a large thatched roof that hugs the ancient riverine tree line and accentuates its most beautiful assets.

Various small private lounge areas are created for comfort, privacy and spaciousness. Within the tree line you will find a nice shaded decked area that leads to the pool.

The whole camp is shaded by magnificent Llala Palms, Giant Ebony, Mangosteen, Sausage and Giant Fig trees.

Pom Pom Camp is a vintage camp and one for the safari traditionalist with an emphasis on the nature experience.  

It is situated in a private concession in the heart of the Okavango Delta on the western boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve. Surrounded by stunning Okavango scenery made up of crystal clear channels and waterways, Pom Pom lies on a permanent lagoon laden with reeds, water-lilies, birdlife and hippos.

Built in traditional safari style all nine tents, including a family (children 8 years +) and honeymoon tent, are spread out under shady trees and overlook the tranquil and scenic lagoon. The tents are set on raised wooden decks with a large shaded verandah at the front. Bathrooms are en-suite and consist of a wash basin, flush loo and shower with a plentiful supply of piping hot water.

One of the jewels of the Okavango Delta Pom Pom Camp is known as much for its “soul” as for the delta swamps it is named after. Decorated in warm earthy tones the attractive open sided main lodge is constructed out of thatch and canvas and comprises a stylish lounge, dining and bar area and small curio shop. To the side of the bar is a plunge pool with loungers making it the perfect place to relax between meals and activities. A boma, sandy terrace with open fire pit, hammocks and easy chairs completes the picture.
