Here we will also do a short safety briefing about what to do when you are encountered with the iconic African wildlife like elephant and lion.


day 2 to day 4: The wetlands of the Okavango Delta. In Maun we stay the first night in our vehicle's rooftop tent to get used to them and we prepare ourselves for an adventurous sleep-out for two nights on an island in the middle of the Delta. You can only get there by the old-fashioned way; the “Mokoro Canoe”. The Delta is a true safe-haven for water-birds, fish, frogs and hippo and is one of the last real fresh water-wilderness areas of the world. Back in Maun we get well our deserved hot showers and book into a comfortable tented chalet. 
 
day 5 to day 8: The jewel that is Khwai. We will drive in half a day to the beautiful Khwai Community Reserve. An area teeming with wildlife. Our driving skills and the strength of the 4x4 vehicles will be tested and we plan to stay at the wonderful Mogotho community campsite for 2 nights. This site is problably the most beautiful in Botswana and has no running water nor electricity.  From there it is just a short drive to Khwai Bush Camp where we all our wishes will be completely cared for. We spend two nights at the luxury Khwai Bush Camp. We will go out on Game Drives and Mokoro trips together with one of the best field guides of Botswana. 
 
day 9 and day 10: The legendary Savuti marshes. We drive from Khwai to the Savuti. It’s slow going on the deep sandy roads situated on top of an ancient dune. The Savuti marshes are one of the most well-known wilderness areas in the world due to the many famous nature documentaries that where filmed here. When the rains are right, the marshes fill to the brim with wildlife and we spend two nights here in our rooftop tents at the Savuti campsite. Watch for a very curious honey-badger that often strolls through camp in the evening or early morning. Game Drive’s are done in our own vehicles and we will just visit water-pans excited to see what magic wildlife moments will happen there.
 
day 11 and day 12: Chobe National Park. The Lenyanti is a quiet and often overlooked corner of Chobe National Park. It is beautifully wild and has extensive views over a vast riverine area. We are staying two nights at the luxurious Lenyanti Tented Bush Camp, close-by Namibia's Caprivi strip. The area is known for its open vistas, large herds of Cape buffalo and always present elephants. Wildlife viewing from our private deck just can’t get better!
 
day 13 and day14: Kasane and Victoria Falls. It will take us a days drive to Kasana, where we will set-off for a magical sunset boat trip on the Chobe River. The next day we will visit one of the seven wonders of the world and discovered by the famous Dr. Livingstone;  the majestic Victoria falls! Bring extra dry clothes for the return trip! The falls are just over the border from Kasane inside Zimbabwe. We stay two nights at Senyati Camping site not far from Kasane. Wildlife often visits the campsite here at night and we need to use our torches to walk around at night.
 
day 15 to day 18: Makgagdigadi Pans National Park. We expect to see incredible big salt pans and some massive herds of migrational Zebra. The park is a days drive away from Kasane and we stay at the famous Baobab planet campsite in the little village of Gweta. From here we will attempt to reach mysterious Lekhubu Island. The island is only reachable depending on the rainfall and road conditions. Picture ancient granite boulders with a Baobab forest in the middle of nothing, the massive Sua salt pan. A few Baobab’s on the island look like giants being frozen in wood, arms reaching up into the heavens. Getting there is not easy, but well worth it.
 
day 19 and day 20: Our return to Maun. We head back from the Makgadigadi Pans, Nxai Pan campsite to Maun in an easy morning drive where we stay in a tented chalet in Maun. In the PM there is a possibility for a last flight over the Okavango Delta before we return our 4x4 vehicle and depart for the flight back home. What an adventure it was!
