“OKAVANGO WILDLIFE SAFARI” is an 11 day
non-participation safari that takes in all that the
Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National
Park offers. From the start of the safari on the banks
of the Zambezi and crossing the Caprivi Strip, to the
first days spent on the enigmatic Okavango River on a
Houseboat and a day where guests can experience the
resonant atmosphere of spirituality that inhabits
Tsodilo Hills. A fantastic flight into our remote camp
in Moremi, to the remarkable Game-viewing that the
inscrutable Savuti Channel offers, with the last few
days spent alongside Chobe River watching Elephants, to
the Safari’s end viewing the splendid Victoria Falls.
From recollections of first few nights spent out in the
unique water Wilderness of the Okavango Delta, to the
moonlit sands of Savuti... these images all combine to
leave indelible memories of spectacular Wildlife, of
nights passed on //Kabbo Houseboat listening to the flow
of the Okavango and the tinkling of Bell Frogs... and of
evenings spent around a campfire under billions of

Tonight we board //Kabbo Houseboat, based on the
serene waters of the Okavango River. Guests depart
Livingstone by road transfer (07h00) and we cross into
Namibia over the Zambezi River at Sesheke Bridge. After
customs and immigration formalities, we make our way
westwards, before driving south into Botswana and the
town of Shakawe, which is situated on the banks of the
Okavango River. //Kabbo is a San Bushman word which is a
loose translation meaning “To dream”. The Houseboat
operates in the “Panhandle” area of the Okavango Delta,
Northern Botswana. This area is recognized as being
amongst the quietest and most peaceful in the Delta, due
to its remoteness. Indeed, there are only a handful of
permanent camps and boats operating in this wilderness
area - which makes it ideal for our discerning guests.
(L, D: En-Suite Houseboat Cabin).
Kabbo Houseboat, Okavango Delta. //Kabbo has
tender boats which assist in the activities offered. The
activities available include fishing, bird-watching,
boat safaris and an optional visit to Tsodilo Hills.
Tsodilo Hills is a World Heritage Site
with the richest concentration of San Rock Paintings in
Tsodilo Hills are about 53km southwest of Shakawe in
dry, bush-covered and softly undulating landscape. The
consists of four hills that rise abruptly, to about
400m, from the dry expanse of Bushveld. Having been
inhabited for about 30,000 years, they're one of the
world's oldest historical sites.
The Hills are home to
more than 4,000 San Bushman paintings - probably the
world's most important collection of rock art - perhaps
even more remarkable is the resonant atmosphere of
spirituality that inhabits Tsodilo Hills. Several
walking trails provide helpful routes around the
painting sites. Among the interesting paintings are
paintings of whales and penguins that suggest contact
between the San and other peoples. (B, L ,D: En-Suite
Maun, Sedia Riverside Hotel. Today we take quick and
early drive out of the Okavango Panhandle and journey
and journey south-west into the frontier town of Maun,
to our hotel which has a pleasant eating area with a
welcome swimming pool. The afternoon is at leisure at
the Hotel, which is situated on the banks of the
Thamalakane River. Lunch and Dinner are at guests own
expense. Guests are also able to replenish their drinks
for the next eight days. (B: Hotel).
Our representative who will assist with your transfer
from Sedia Riverside Hotel to Maun Airport and onto a
shared light aircraft, for an exciting flight to Moremi.
Your guide will meet you at the airstrip we take a
leisurely drive to our private Campsite in the Khwai
River area of Moremi Game Reserve. This region’s
diversity of game is astounding and Moremi has quite
rightly been rated as one of the best Game-viewing areas
in the world. Afternoon Game-drive and overnight camping
in Moremi Game Reserve. (B, L, D: Non-Participation
gate, Moremi Game Reserve. Today is spent on early
morning and afternoon game drives. Your guide will
generally spend maximum time on game-drives, depending
on what is seen, trying to cover as much area as
possible. The result of this is guests are given the
best chances of seeing a variety of Wildlife - although
there is of course, the obligatory siesta during the
hottest part of the day. (B, L, D: Non-Participation
Savuti, Chobe National Park. We leave Moremi, crossing
the Khwai Bridge to the northern bank of Khwai River.
There is sometimes a quick opportunity to buy more
drinks in the small village, before making our way to
Chobe National Park. Due to the fact that none of
Botswana’s wildlife areas are fenced, Game can move
freely between these two Wilderness areas, Hippo,
Elephant and sometimes Lion are often found on this
route. Moving through the Mababe depression, we relocate
to Savuti. Game viewing this afternoon takes place along
the fringes of the marsh and surrounding water holes.
The area is best known for large populations of Bull
Elephants-and Prides of Lion that patrol the banks of
this enigmatic channel. (B, L, D: Non-Participation
Savuti, Chobe National Park. Again we have the
opportunity to spend many hours on morning and afternoon
Game drives, as well as an opportunity to climb one of
the 5 hills to see San Bushman paintings, an indication
that this area has always drawn those who have an
affinity to the wilderness. (B, L, D: Non-Participation
Serondella area, Chobe National Park. We journey north
toward the Chobe River, the Second biggest river in
Southern Africa (Zambezi in the largest). Chobe River is
home the world’s largest Elephant herds; large numbers
of Big Game such as Buffalo, Hippo and Lion can be seen
here. Our private campsite is on a Teak forested dune
that overlooks this beautiful river. Game drives are
taken in the afternoons and mornings to find the
remarkable variety of species that are drawn to this
permanent water source. (B, L, D: Non-Participation
Serondella area, Chobe National Park. After an early
start, we take a slow drive along the southern bank of
the Chobe River, where we can find Chobe Bushbuck and
Puku Antelope. In the afternoon, guests might choose to
go on an optional afternoon Boat Cruise along the Chobe
River-perhaps the last river where one has a fair chance
to see Lion and Elephant, Leopard or Wild Dog from the
unique viewpoint of a boat. (B, L, D: Non-Participation
We have a leisurely start this last camping morning and
say fond farewells to our efficient back-up and camp
crew. We head eastwards for the short drive to Kazungula
Border Post, where your guide will ensure that your
transfer back to Livingstone is seamless. This afternoon
is spent exploring one or the truly magnificent sights
on earth-the wonderfully beautiful Victoria Falls-300
feet high and over a mile wide! Witness the power of
nature as an average of 550000 tons of Water thunders
into the Zambezi Gorge every minute. Afternoon at
leisure for optional activities (guests own expense).
Overnight is usually at the Zambezi Waterfront. Please
note that entrance to Victoria Falls is not included in
tour. (B: Lodge).
Victoria Falls, Livingstone-Zambia. After breakfast the
safari arrangements end. Before proceeding with onward
arrangements, guests might want to partake in the
numerous optional activities that are available in this
adventure capital! (B).
