What to expect?
The safari kicks off in the Linyanti and Savute regions of the Chobe National Park. The Linyanti River and Savute Channel provide permanent water to the region, providing sanctuary to thousands of elephants that gather here in the winter months. The Savute has long been synonymous with some of the best predator viewing in the country, including a terrifying pride of elephant-hunting lions.
Following this, the safari relocates further north into the Okavango Delta. This portion is characterised by bigger, permanent channels. Field trips are a mix of water-based, mostly on boats rather than Mokoros, and land-based. This area is renowned for varied and high densities of the game and excellent predator sightings, particularly Buffalo and Lion interactions.
The third stop of the safari is in the ‘Wet’ Delta, a section that is permanently flooded. It consists of a magnificent forested island, overlooking crystal clear waterways and is criss-crossed by deep channels and lush vegetation. Field trips are largely water-based, namely on boats or Mokoros with amazing opportunities to witness the Sitatunga antelope and Pel’s Fishing-Owl.
The safari concludes in Chief’s Island, a huge area of waterways, plains, and forests. Due to its slightly higher elevations, the high flood waters never reach quite as high as Chief’s Island, which makes it one of the best ‘Dry’ safari destinations in the area. Chief’s Island has incredibly high concentrations of plains game and their predators – setting the stage for intense predator interactions. Field trips are almost exclusively on foot or in game drive vehicles.
This experience is truly unique and allows you to get up close and personal with both the land-based and water-based animals. You won’t want to miss this one!
