2 Nights Chobe Savanna Lodge, Chobe River / Caprivi
6 Nights Letaka Mobile Tented Safaris, Moremi Game Reserve & Khwai Community
2 Nights Xugana Island Lodge, Okavango Delta





Upon arrival into Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met and transferred by road to Victoria Falls Safari Lodge for a two night stay.

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is set high on a plateau which forms a natural boundary to the unfenced Zambezi National Park and is just four kilometers from the majestic Victoria Falls. This deluxe 72-roomed African Lodge prides itself on hospitality and first-class cuisine rivaled only by uninterrupted views and magnificent sunsets. The lodge offers accommodation in luxurious rooms with private balconies and bathrooms, duplex-style suites with views overlooking the waterhole.


Victoria Falls town lies on the southern bank of the Zambezi River at the eastern end of the Victoria Falls. It is a lovely tourist town which is easy to explore on foot and which offers a wide range of activities from the challenge of white water rafting and bungee jumping, to the awe-inspiring elephant back safaris and sunset cruises. It has something for everyone.

The Victoria Falls are one of the natural Seven Wonders of the World and is the largest sheet of falling water on earth – a spellbinding and mesmerising spectacle. The sheer mass of water cascading down the 100m drop across nearly 2km makes a thunderous roar and creates a magnificent spray of water that can be seen for miles – hence the local name ‘mosi oa tunya’ meaning ‘the smoke that thunders’.

DAY 3 & 4: CHOBE SAVANNA LODGE, Chobe River/ Caprivi

After breakfast, you will be transferred by road from Victoria Falls Safari Lodge to Kasane Immigration for onwards boat transfer to Chobe Savanna Lodge for a 2 night stay.

Chobe Savanna Lodge overlooks the vast floodplains of the Chobe National Park’s Puku Flats. The lodge offers guests a hideaway for those looking for an exclusive Chobe River experience. The lodge is relaxed and informal, set in a classic African Savanna environment with sweeping vistas surrounding the lodge. The focal point of the lodge is a thatched open sided main building which commands a 270 degree view over the Chobe River and beyond to the Chobe National Park.

Guests have a choice of game viewing by boat and sunset cruises on the Chobe River, nature walks  and a cultural excursion to one of the surrounding local communities. Here guests can observe the deep-rooted traditional life styles of the people. The activities are done by resident professional guides, whose intimate knowledge will make for an unforgettable experience.


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, particularly in the dry season (May – Oct) where water is scarce away from the river. 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.

In the rainy season (Nov – Apr) the game is much less concentrated at the river as the wildlife spread throughout the greater area of Chobe National Park due to availability of surface water from nearby pans. This assists the vegetation on the river banks in recovering from the massive herds that are attracted to the area in the dry months. The summer rains bring beautiful wild flowers, exquisite scenery, impressive bird life and an abundance of young animals usually born around November/December.

DAY 5 – 10: LETAKA TENTED MOBILE SAFARI, Moremi Game Reserve

Following breakfast, you will be transferred from the lodge to Kasane Airport for your onward flight to Xakanaxa Airstrip in the Moremi Game Reserve.

Your guide will meet you upon arrival at the airstrip and take you to your private pre-erected camp. The following 7 days will be spent exploring the Moremi Game Reserve and surrounding areas on game drives. Your 6 nights will be split between two different locations within the reserve and the neighbouring Khwai community area.

Letaka Safaris mobile tented safaris are exclusive (maximum 9 guests), comfortable and fully serviced providing the perfect balance between adventure and relaxation.

Guests are accommodated in spacious (3m x 3m), walk-in wilderness safari tents with large windows, a private bathroom en-suite and a shaded veranda. The tents are furnished with two single beds, complete with comfortable mattresses, duvets and pillows (bed and bath linen are provided). The en-suite bathroom includes a hot water bucket shower, traditional long-drop toilet and hand basin.

There is a dining tent where meals are served but due to the excellent weather and skies often dinner is served beneath the stars. All meals are prepared by the camp chef, dinner is 3-course.

Each tent has an oil/paraffin lamp on the veranda and in the bathroom and within the tent itself, a LED rechargeable camp light is supplied along with a side table in the sleeping area and in the bathroom.  Although each tent has lighting and there are lamps strategically around the camp for navigation, an essential tool for your safari is a headlamp which lets you read a book at night in your tent or catch up with your safari journal as you listen to the sounds of the wild outside.

As well as a professional guide you will also be accompanied by a back up team consisting of a chef and camp assistants who are there to make your safari even more enjoyable.  The camp staff set-up and break down camp as required as well as carrying out various daily camp chores ensuring guests enjoy total relaxation on safari.

Letaka Safaris vehicles are spacious and comfortable, ensuring guests enjoy the best possible game viewing experience. All vehicles are fitted with inverters and strip plugs allowing guests to charge batteries whilst on safari with us using the ac charger that came with your appliance.

Letaka Safaris use Hospitality and Tourism Association of Botswana Sites (HATAB) within the National Parks and Game Reserves which are exclusive wilderness sites and can only be booked by members of HATAB. There are no fixed buildings or facilities at these sites and the entire camp is erected and removed by the supply team.

A detailed itinerary for the mobile safari is available on request.


Moremi Game Reserve is a rich and diverse wildlife sanctuary, encompassing the Okavango Delta. The reserve is unfenced and its boundaries are defined naturally by river systems. The vegetation is varied, with dry land complemented by permanent and seasonal swamplands, resulting in an excellent diversity of both wildlife and birdlife. There is a network of game drive routes through the reserve as well as access to the permanent delta waterways in Xakanaxa where boating can be enjoyed.

Moremi is amongst the best game reserves in Africa for viewing the endangered African wild dog. Xakanaxa is home to a resident herd of several hundred buffalo whose range covers the territories of at least 4 prides of lion which may often be seen flanking the ever moving herd. Breeding herds of elephant move between their browsing areas in the mopane forests and the fresh water of the Okavango. Red lechwe are one of the more unusual antelope species commonly found here. Game is more concentrated around the permanent water during the dry season (Apr – Oct) with it becoming very hot in the later months.


Moremi Game Reserve is surrounded by wildlife management areas of the Okavango, with no boundaries between the concessions and the reserve allowing wildlife to move between the woodlands in the wet season when water is plentiful and back to permanent rivers and lagoons in the dry season. The prior inhabitants in the area (the River Bushmen) were moved to the periphery of the reserve, establishing Khwai village near the North Gate exit of the park. The Khwai area is managed by the community through the Khwai Development Trust. This area offers the same wildlife experience as the reserve itself. A key advantage of being outside the reserve is the freedom to do walking safaris and night drives as the area is not governed by the same rules.

The vegetation is varied, with dry land complemented by permanent and seasonal swamplands, resulting in an excellent diversity of both wildlife and birdlife. Game is more concentrated around the permanent water during the dry season (Apr – Oct) with it becoming very hot in the later months. The rainy season (Nov – Apr) invigorates the lush scenery with wild flowers, dramatic thundershowers, spectacular sunsets and the birthing season brings great predator and prey interaction.

DAY 11 & 12: XUGANA ISLAND LODGE, Okavango Delta

Following the morning activity (time permitting) you will be transferred by light aircraft to Xugana Island lodge  for a 2 night stay.

Xugana Lagoon is widely recognised as the most spectacular permanent water site in the entire Okavango Delta, which itself is Africa’s largest and most awe-inspiring oasis. Xugana Island Lodge is situated on a private concession and takes full advantage of this magnificent site. An expansive deck and al fresco dining area overlooks the vast, pristine body of water that makes up the permanent Okavango Delta.

The lodge accommodates only sixteen guests in large, raised, reed and thatch lagoon-facing chalets, with en-suite facilities and private viewing decks optimally placed on the shaded fringe of the island.


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.

The Okavango wetland encompasses Moremi Game Reserve and surrounding regions divided into areas known as Private Concessions. These concessions are wildlife management areas, carefully administrated to balance the growing community’s development and conservation, whilst empowering citizens through sustainable tourism. Many of the exclusive lodges in Botswana are situated within these concessions in the delta, providing an unparalleled wildlife experience – exclusive and remote, avoiding mass tourism and exploitation.


After breakfast you will be transferred by light aircraft to Maun Airport for your onward travel arrangements.
