This 7 night Botswana Safari is perfect for first timers offering a very affordable trip whilst staying in two very different and prolific game viewing regions - Chobe and the Okavango Delta.
This Safari starts in Kasane, Botswana, an easy flight from Johannesburg - where you will be met your safari guide in an open 4x4 vehicle and driven to Chobe Elephant Camp on the western border of Chobe National Park.
Spend 3 nights at Chobe Elephant Camp in a Standard Chalet, fully inclusive of all meals and safari activities.
Explore the Chobe floodplains and Chobe River on game drives and boat cruises that will reveal the magnificent animals and birdlife that live here – Chobe is world renowned for its elephant populations. Oher wildlife you would expect to see in Chobe includes: Cape Buffalo, Hippo, Giraffe, Red Lechwe, Puku, Kudu, Impala, Sable Antelope, Crocodile, Lion, Leopard, Hyena, African Wild Dog and Jackal. In these summer months (Nov-March) Botswana becomes a productive wildlife paradise interspersed with vibrant floral displays.
Depart Chobe Elephant Camp by road and a light aircraft flight into the amazing Okavango Delta.
Spend 4 nights in a luxury safari tent, fully inclusive at Pom Pom Camp located on an island in a private concession in the heart of the Delta.
The camp overlooks a lagoon and enjoys spectacular sunsets in this especially beautiful area.
Activities include game drives, both day and night for exciting viewing of nocturnal species, as well as mokoro safaris and bush walks. This is a wonderfully authentic Okavango experience and great value for money.
Depart Pom Pom Camp by light aircraft to Maun Airport to connect with your journey home.
A few days spent at Victoria Falls is a wonderfully relaxing way to start this holiday especially after a long haul flight. Apart from viewing the majestic Falls you can also get out on safari by boat or open vehicle to start spotting wildlife and get your "eye in" before you arrive in Botswana!

To the side of the bar is a plunge pool with loungers making it the perfect place to relax between meals and activities.
