Chobe and the Delta (Desert and Delta)

This classic Desert & Delta safari gives you the opportunity to see many iconic species in the wilds of Botswana. Visit the famous Chobe National Park, wonder at the wildlife of the Moremi Game Reserve and explore the delights of the Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland delta and a wildlife haven.
**Desert & Delta have seven lodges in this area and you can combine your favourites to make a safari to suit you - see below for further fantastic combinations.

Privileged to have many properties within Botswana’s National Parks and Game Reserves, Desert & Delta Safaris is committed to working with the Department of Wildlife and National Parks to ensure the preservation of the unique habitats within both these and their private concessions. Desert and Delta continue to focus on the Rhino Conservation Botswana Reintroduction and Relocation Programme's great work within the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park as a key environmentally focused program to fund and donate towards - something your stay will directly contribute to. The Real Africa Trust's Explorers against Extinction campaign has worked to raise awareness about the rhino relocation in Botswana and the threats faced by this iconic species. We have pledged to fund a new anti-poaching dog squad to help protect Botswana's precious rhinos and are delighted to say that we have now raised enough to purchase two triple role Belgian malinois pups and fund their training with ASA. The dogs are due for deployment to the Okavango in summer 2018. You can find out more on our 'News' and 'Conservation' pages.

Safari Itinerary

DAY 1 - 2

Chobe National Park
On arrival at Kasane International Airport, in the Public Arrivals Hall you will be met by a representative from Chobe Game Lodge and will be transferred to the lodge arriving in time for afternoon tea. Following afternoon tea you will enjoy your first afternoon game activity. You will return to the lodge in time to freshen-up before dinner. The Chobe National Park, which is the second largest national park in Botswana and covers 10,566 square km, has one of the greatest concentrations of game found on the African continent. Its uniqueness in the abundance of wildlife and the true African nature of the region, offers a safari experience of a lifetime. The park is divided into four distinctly different eco systems: Serondela with its lush plains and dense forests in the Chobe River area in the extreme north-east; the Savuti Marsh in the west; the Linyanti Swamps in the north-west and the hot dry hinterland in between. A major feature of Chobe National Park is the elephant population currently estimated at around 120,000. The Chobe elephant are migratory, making seasonal movements of up to 200 km from the Chobe and Linyanti rivers, where they concentrate in the dry season, to the pans in the southeast of the park, to which they disperse in the rains.

DAY 3 - 4

Okavango Delta
On arrival at Camp Okavango Airstrip, you will be met and transferred to camp arriving in time for lunch. After lunch enjoy a short rest before your afternoon/evening game activity. Botswana’s magnificent Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland delta, is a maze of deep lagoons, large lakes and hidden, meandering channels. During the annual flood season the Delta covers a vast area of over 16,000 km² before shrinking to less than 9,000 km² in the dry season. Trapped in a basin of parched Kalahari Desert sand, the fresh water oasis attracts wildlife that depends on the permanent waters of this unique environment. Camp Okavango, an enchanting and authentic African safari lodge situated on the remote Nxaragha Island at the heart of the permanent Okavango Delta, assures an unparalleled year-round water wilderness experience.

DAY 5 - 6

Moremi Game Reserve
On arrival at Moremi Airstrip, you will be met and transferred to Camp Moremi, arriving in time for afternoon tea. Following afternoon tea, you will enjoy your first afternoon/evening game drive, and return to camp in time to freshen-up before dinner. Peeking out from under a lush green woodland canopy, Camp Moremi, in the Xakanaxa area of Moremi Game Reserve, is a truly hidden gem. At the point where the life-giving waters of the Okavango Delta meet the vast plains of the Kalahari Desert, Mother Nature has created a sanctuary of Mopane forests, open grasslands, seasonal floodplains and riverine habitats, resulting in one of the most magnificent and welcoming animal environments in all of Africa.
