After breakfast, you will be transferred by road to Chobe Elephant Camp (Standard Option) or Ngoma Safari Lodge (Superior Option) for two nights. (NB private transfer for Superior Option - transfer may be shared on Standard Option).
 
Chobe Elephant Camp is located high on the edge of a rocky ridge overlooking the famous Chobe River. This uniquely designed lodge has been built to take advantage of the incredible views overlooking the sweeping floodplains while offering a comfortable refuge from the harsh African conditions.
 
Ngoma Safari Lodge is situated within the Chobe Forest Reserve bordering the western edge of Chobe National Park and overlooking the Chobe River. All 8 river facing suites have spacious internal and external living areas, a bath, an inside and outside shower, an open lounge and a private splash pool. Each suite has a view of the river offering the opportunity to see the famous Chobe elephants, migrating zebra or buffalo grazing on the floodplain below (depending on the season).
 
The Chobe River Front is a remarkable wildlife area due to the permanent water source of the Chobe River. The spectacle of all the animals coming to drink and frolic at the water's edge is one to behold. It is an area famous for its abundance of elephants, a variety of predators and, in addition, you are likely to see herds of buffalo and possibly even roan and sable antelope.

After a morning activity (time permitting) and an early breakfast, you will be transferred by road to Kasane Airport for the charter flight to Machaba Camp (Standard Option) or Kanana Camp (Superior Option) for 2 nights.
 
Machaba Camp is situated in the game rich Khwai area, on the eastern tongue of the Okavango Delta. The camp is built in the classic 1950’s style, with 10 luxury safari tents, en-suite bathrooms and romantic outdoor showers. All the tents are situated on the ground and the pathways to the tents meander between the large riverine trees. Activities offered include night and day game drives as well as mokoro excursions. 
 
Kanana Camp is set in the south western delta amongst grass covered islands formed by fertile eroded termite hills dotted with fig, palm and jackal berry trees. This traditional camp has an intimate and personal atmosphere with just 8 tents built among spectacular shady trees of ebony, acacia and sausage tree. The main lodge area is on raised decking encircling the trees and offers a dining and sitting area, a cocktail bar and a refreshing plunge pool. Activities at Kanana include day and night game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles, game viewing on mokoro excursions, guided walks, fishing, motor boating and sunset cruises. The waterways are lined with reeds and dotted with papyrus and tree islands in this picturesque and tranquil part of the delta.
 
 
Day 7 & 8: Okavango Delta
 
After an early morning activity (time permitting) and breakfast, you will be transferred to the airstrip for the charter flight to Gunn’s Camp (Standard Option) or Shinde Camp (Superior Option) for 2 nights.
 
Overlooking the legendary Chiefs Island and bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, Gunn's Camp is one of the few remaining luxury, vintage safari camps. Set under leafy palms and African Ebony to blend naturally with its unique surroundings, Gunn's Camp achieves a fine balance of comfort without isolating guests from the sights and sounds of the wilderness. The accommodation area is connected to the main camp via raised wooden walkway crossing the wetlands and magically lit by a series of fairylike lanterns. Guests have access to the elevated bar, lounge and dining room, campfire boma and swimming pool. Activities on offer are motor boat cruises, mokoro excursions and guided walks which allow you to experience the beauty of the unique Okavango Delta. 
 
Shinde is a magical hideaway in the wildlife abundant Shinde private concession, nestled within the shade of ancient jackal berries, water figs and knob thorns and built in a remote and exclusive setting on the edge of the permanent waters of the northern Okavango Delta. It is surrounded by clear waterways teeming with birdlife and game, and offering a wide variety of activities all year round. The camp consists of eight large en-suite safari style tents on timber decking furnished in elegant African style. Shinde also features a dining area, boma and a swimming pool. Activities include game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles which offer some of the finest dry land game viewing in Botswana with regular sightings of lion and leopard, exploring the water ways in mokoro, guided nature walks, night drives, motor boating and sunset cruises.
 
The Okavango Delta is one of the world's largest inland deltas situated in the middle of the largest stretch of continuous sand in the world - the Kalahari basin. This oasis in the middle of the desert is a rich yet fragile ecosystem, providing a life source for an incredible variety of wildlife. A wealth of species have adapted to the contrasting conditions created by living in the harsh Kalahari desert which is transformed annually with the arrival of the delta flood waters originating in Angola.
 
 
DAY 9: Travel to Maun
 
After an early morning activity (time permitting) and breakfast, you will be transferred to the airstrip for the charter flight to Maun Airport.
