Full Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Maun

On arrival at Maun you will be met at the airport by one of our tour representatives who will assist you to the light aircraft for your flight to the Grasslands Bushman Lodge. At the nearby airstrip you will be picked up and driven to the lodge where you will have a choice of activities for the rest of the day and evening. Enjoy a glass of wine while overlooking a waterhole that attracts a large variety of wildlife during the day and night or go for an afternoon game drive.

Accommodation: Standard Grasslands Bushman Lodge

Day 2: Grasslands Bushman Lodge

All activities at Grassland are very much tailored to guests interests and requests, which means you can decide what activities you would like to do on each day of your stay. Some guests like to spend more time with the bushman while others prefer not to participate in the predator project activities and would rather have a series of game drives. After a busy day enjoy the beautiful sunsets over the Central Kalahari and have dinner under the vast African skies.

Accommodation: Standard Grasslands Bushman Lodge

Day 3: Grasslands Bushman Lodge

Another great day at Grasslands Bushman Lodge. As with most safari camps, you can get up early and go on a game drive before breakfast seeing the animals before the heat of the day sets in. Then relax at the lodge before going out on an evening safari seeing the animals at their most active and playful and witness one of those special African sunsets. Then its back to the lodge for dinner under the stars and chats with fellow guests around a blazing fire.

Accommodation: Standard Grasslands Bushman Lodge

Day 4: Okavango Delta

After breakfast leave Grassland Bushman Lodge and take the short flight by light aircraft to Oddballs' Enclave. The Enclave offers only walking and mokoro, the traditional dug-out canoe of the swamps. Your private guide, who takes a maximum of two guests, was born and raised in the area. He owns his mokoro and will take you out on it in the early mornings and afternoon, to nearby islands where he will walk with you to view game and the spectacular landscape that is the Okavango.

Accommodation: Standard Oddballs Enclave

Day 5: Okavango Delta

The Enclave is a unique experience and offers a change from the traditional safari camps where you are taken around in open top game viewing vehicles. Here you always go out and explore on foot or in the traditional dug-out canoe which is perfect for navigating the swamps of the Okavango Delta. Oddballs Enclave is a small, secluded off-shoot of the Okavango's most famous destination set on a beautiful island with spectacular views across the flood plains.

Accommodation: Standard Oddballs Enclave

Day 6: Okavango Delta

Another full day to enjoy the delights of the enclave. With just five elevated mini Meru tents, each with en-suite facilities, a single or king bed and fine linen, it is perfect for small groups, families and those travellers seeking an intimate atmosphere in which to luxuriate in one of the world's most beautiful settings. Take walking trips around the old-growth forests of the island fringe and enjoy more canoe trips and ensure you make the most of your final day in this special place.

Accommodation: Standard Oddballs Enclave

Day 7: Chobe National Park

This morning there may be time for one or two more adventures in the delta before you say farewell to staff at Oddballs Enclave. You will be picked up and driven to the nearby airstrip for your next light aircraft flight to Camp Savutti, which is just a 20 minute drive from the runway. Here you will stay for the next three nights discovering the delights of the famous Chobe National Park, one of the best game viewing areas in the whole of Botswana.

Accommodation: Standard Camp Savuti

Day 8: Chobe National Park

Rise early today for your first morning game drive through the park and along the fringes of the Channel and March. All the game viewing vehicles are open to facilitate game watching and photography, and your experienced guide will delight in showing you the beauty and diversity of Savut's natural wonders. The area offers superb game and bird viewing in the open areas of Savuti within Chobe National Park and you should see a whole range of wildlife.

Accommodation: Standard Camp Savuti

Day 9: Chobe National Park

Another great day of wildlife viewing in Chobe National Park with morning and evening game drives seeing the animals at their most playful and active and relaxing in between trips. The luxurious Savutti Camp is a wonderful place to get close to top predators and see some or all of the Big Five - lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant. It is also a great place to witness the mass migration of zebra and the area is renowned for its large population of bull elephants.

Accommodation: Standard Camp Savuti

Day 10: End of tour

Today your memorable 10 day safari trip around Botswana comes to an end, but there's time for one final early morning game drive in Chobe National Park before returning to the lodge for a farewell breakfast. Later you are picked up and driven back to the local airstrip for your short flight back to Maun where you can continue your African adventure or catch your flight home. This great three centre safari holiday ticks all the boxes and you are guaranteed to see a vast array of wildlife.
