Day 2: The Old House, Chobe River Front


Chobe River Front

The Chobe River forms the northern boundary of the Chobe National Park, renowned for its reliable and diverse game viewing. Safaris are conducted both by boat and on land.  This section of the park is best known for its elephant and hippo populations but the waters attract all manner of game including large herds of buffalo and the lions that prey on them.


Notes

On arrival in to Kasane you will be met and transfered to The Old House Lodge. 

The Old House is a small family owned and run guest lodge situated in Kasane. Overlooking the Chobe River and within walking distance to town. Your room is air conditioned with en-suite bathroom, tea and coffee making facilities, small electronic safe, mosquito nets, safe and mini fridge. 

The Old House is a great place to relax for the afternoon to get over your journey, meet your fellow guests before setting off on safari the following day. The lodge has a Restaurant and bar. Offering 3 family rooms, 4 double rooms and 3 twin rooms. 


Consultant Notes

You may find that other guests on safari are traveling on the same flights . 

You can choose to arrive earlier and spend a couple of days at the Near by Victoria Falls, if you would like to explore this idea simply contact the office for ideas and advice.

Travel days require an early start, pack our bags and leave camp to have breakfast somewhere scenic.  Following breakfast we game-drive towards our next camp stopping for tea/coffee and cookies and later for a relaxing lunch under a shady grove of trees. Invariably lunch finds us within a short distance of our camp and we arrive in camp to find our crew has once again erected the camp at our new destination. There is time for a shower before afternoon tea and then it is time to begin our exploration of the area.

Days on safari the best game viewing is the early morning and so each day begins at the first hint of dawn with a coffee and light breakfast around the fire. From here we go straight into game-drive, walking safari or boat trip. After several hours of wildlife viewing we stop for a comfort break and have tea, coffee and cookies. Between 10 and 11 am we return to camp where there is time to freshen up with warm water in your standing basins before enjoying a sumptuous brunch consisting of fresh-baked camp bread, baked dishes and cold salads. After brunch there is time to relax, siesta, read a book, shower etc. before heading out in the late afternoon for our game-drive or boat trip. In areas outside of the National Parks we may also return to camp after dark with the use of a spotlight to look for nocturnal game.


Overnight: The Old House View iBrochure

The Old House is located in Kasane, Botswana. Conveniently located within walking distance to all shops and a 10 minute boat ride to the entrance of the Chobe National Park.

Day 3: Letaka Tented Camp


Botswana


Savute - Chobe National Park

In the heart of Botswana’s Chobe National Park lies a dynamic wilderness, a sweeping expanse of savannah brooded over by several rocky outcrops which guard a relic marsh and the dry channel that was once its lifeline. This is Savute, where mysterious wet and dry cycles mould the landscape and dictate the nature of its wild inhabitants. Currently it is dry, and wild dogs hunt in the channel where crocodiles swam only twenty years ago. The Gubatsa Hills shelter leopard and klipspringer and rock paintings of early man’s wildlife sightings. During the arid winter months game viewing concentrates on Savute’s resident bull elephants, antelope and lion prides, and black-backed jackal, bat-eared foxes, tsessebe, and kudu, abound. The summer rains bring a feast for lion, hyena and cheetah as thousands of migrating zebra and wildebeest assemble in a chaotic pattern on the marsh. Cape buffalo herds arrive and migrant birds swell Savute’s 300 resident species, thrilling bird-watchers with their spectacular antics.


Day Itinerary

KASANE TO CENTRAL CHOBE / TRAVEL DAY (5 HOURS)

Our safari will start in  earnest in Kasane at 09h00, 

We have arranged to start the day gently with the boat cruise along the Chobe river in seach of Elephants who come to the river some times in great numbers. Then we will drive you through Chobe National Park to our first camp site in Central Chobe / Savuti.

Camp will be ready and waiting on our arrival. 

TRAVEL DAYS require an early start, pack our bags and leave camp to have breakfast somewhere scenic.  Following breakfast we game-drive towards our next camp stopping for tea/coffee and cookies and later for a relaxing lunch under a shady grove of trees. Invariably lunch finds us within a short distance of our camp and we arrive in camp to find our crew has once again erected the camp at our new destination. There is time for a shower before afternoon tea and then it is time to begin our exploration of the area.

Consultant Notes

Habitat: the habitat on today’s drive takes us from the Chobe River through the wonderful Zambezi teak woodlands of the Chobe Forest Reserve, across the sand-ridge and into the stunted mopane scrub of the Goha clay basin.

Wildlife: while there are community areas that we pass through that are settled by local tribes, for the vast majority of the day’s drive we pass through wild country where wildlife moves un-inhibited by fences or man. Roan and sable antelope thrive in the teak woodlands where the low density of predators and lack of competition for food by other ungulates makes this prime habitat for these large ungulates. Leopard occur in these woodlands in low numbers but they are highly secretive and seldom seen. The Goha region has natural waterholes that hold water well into the dry season and herds of buffalo, Burchell’s zebra, greater kudu and elephant come down to drink.

Birding: the most unusual species are to be found in the teak (Baikea plurijuga) woodlands. This broad-leafed woodland, or miombo as it is locally known, provides good pickings for insectivorous birds that favour canopy habitat. Grey tit-flycatcher, ashy flycatcher, paradise flycatcher, pallid flycatcher, scarlet-chested sunbird, amethyst sunbird, yellow-throated petronia, red-headed weaver and violet-backed starling are only some of the species that move around in the “bird parties” in the canopy. Dickenson’s kestrel, red-necked falcon, peregrine falcon* and lizard buzzard are some of the raptors to keep an eye out for, while the diminutive white-faced owl can often be seen roosting in the road-side vegetation. Flappet lark, fawn-coloured lark, dusky lark*, olive-tree warbler* and neddicky are species more likely to be enjoyed by the birding enthusiast.

Overnight: Letaka Tented Camp 

A common misconception is that a camping safari means getting stuck in and helping with the setting up camp well, nothing could be further from the truth. Professional safari staff take care of all the camp chores and wonderful safari chefs are capable of producing miracles from a bed of coals.
You can expect large tents with beds, bedside tables, LED lights, en-suite toilet and shower, covered verandah area with relaxing chairs and washbasins.
That’s why we call it a mobile tented safari and NOT a camping safari.
Your tents is spacious 4 x 3m Sahara style with a high roof and with a 2 x 3m en-suite bathroom at the rear and a 2 x 3m covered area in front. Your tent is fitted with solid base camp bed made up with mattresses, sheets, duvets and pillows. The en-suite has a long drop toilet and a bucket shower at the rear of the tent. Showers can be ordered as hot, cold or warm and the water is heated in a bucket on the fire. Both hand towels and bath towels are supplied for the guests’ convenience but please note that guests should bring their own personal items and toiletries. 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! Take our advice – Spending a little bit of money will save you a lot of frustration. If you are travelling as a couple then pack one per person.

Day 4: Letaka Tented Camp 

Day Itinerary

CENTRAL CHOBE: EXPLORATION DAYS

We will venture out in our private fully open safari vehicle to explore and see what special wildl;ife encounters we can generate. Our guide is extremely experienced and posses fantastic bush skills and working with Tony will ensure we make the most of our time in the Chobe  / Savuti area.

Unlike the vast majority of the country, Savuti is not flat landscape. Large outcrops of volcanic rock reach up out of the Kalahari sands, towering over the endless savannah. These hills provide habitat for a completely different array of small wildlife, birds and plants. The Savuti Marsh has been the stage for many of the most dramatic wildlife documentaries in Africa. The wide open country, good ungulate populations and particularly strong prides of lion and hyaena clans make for dramatic wildlife interaction and excellent viewing opportunities. The now dry Savuti Channel runs through this landscape linking the drysand-veld, the waterholes, the hills and the grassland that was the Savuti Marsh.

Consultant Notes

Wildlife: undoubtedly it is the interaction between lion and elephant that is the most interesting aspect of Savuti. The area is inhabited by a huge pride of lions with numbers fluctuating from 20-30 members. These remarkable lion have learned over the years how to hunt these massive pachyderms that are supposedly above predation. Launching their attack under darkness and using their numbers, they manage to kill adolescent and even young adult elephant.

The marsh is prime cheetah country and in the wet season it is not unusual to have the wild dog hunting here in Savuti.

Birding: the surface water that is pumped by the Government here provides a major attraction for bird life. In the dry season thousands of dove and sandgrouse come down to drink in the mornings and are under constant surveillance by yellow-billed kite*, tawny eagle and African hawk-eagle. Red-crested korhaan are common in the Kalahari apple-leaf (Lonchocarpus nelsii) veld. The marsh is the summer home for good numbers of Caspian plover* and Montague’s harrier* as well as chestnut-backed sparrowlark, grey-backed sparrowlark, Northern black korhaan, rufous-naped lark, African pipit and desert cisticola. Dickenson’s kestrel, Amur falcon* and red-necked falcon are found along the perimeter of the marsh.

Day 6: Letaka Tented Camp (Wed, 30 August)


Khwai Community Area

The Khwai area of the Okavango lies along the northern boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve.  This is an unfenced boundary allowing wildlife to move freely between the woodlands in the wet season when water is plentiful and back to permanent rivers and lagoons in the dry season. The Khwai area offers the same wildlife experience as the reserve with the added advantage of being a private concession which means the ability to do walking safaris and night drives.


Day Itinerary

CENTRAL CHOBE TO KHWAI / TRAVEL DAY

*full day of extended game drive and journey time with picnic lunch between camps

Leaving the parched landscape, we continue our journey south to the Khwai community area.

Habitat: a fascinating days drive looking at some of the evidence of the Paleo-Lake Makgadikgadi that dried up some ten thousand years ago. The most challenging part of the trip is crossing the Magwikwe sand-ridge that formed the shoreline for this massive inland sea. The winding track through this deep sand makes for interesting travel in the early summer! The old lake bed is now the Mababe Depression. The dense clay floor of the depression result in high protein feed for wildlife and the area teams with game after the rains. During the rainy season the depression is impassable due to the “cotton soil” and alternative routes must be used.

Consultant Notes

Wildlife: a day when anything could happen. The range of habitat that is covered encompasses most of the habitat types of northern Botswana. We pass through excellent lion country and some of the best cheetah country that our safari will cover. Elephant occur throughout the drive but are more common at the start and end of the drive where permanent surface water can be found.

Birding: The Mababe Depression is a birder’s paradise. The nutritious grasses that grow on the rich soils provide excellent seed for an impressive array of estrillids and viduids. Among these are the magnificently coloured violet-eared waxbill, black-cheeked waxbill, village indigobird, shaft-tailed whydah and paradise whydah. These in turn provide a good food source for small raptors such as the little sparrowhawk, shikra, Gabar goshawk, red-necked falcon and Lanner falcon. It is not only the small birds that feed on the grass seeds, but rodents too. There are annual outbreaks of huge numbers of rats and mice. As a result huge numbers of secretary bird, tawny eagle, black-shouldered kite, Steppe eagle*, lesser-spotted eagle*, Wahlberg’s eagle* and Steppe buzzard* can be found.

Day 7: Letaka Tented Camp 

Day Itinerary

KHWAI EXPLORATION DAYS

The Khwai River forms a boundary between the reserve and the community area. We spend the following two nights camping at an exclusive campsite in the community area, exploring the Khwai floodplains on game drives both during the day and at night. Exploring after dark with spotlights offers you an opportunity to experience some of the nocturnal animals that are rarely encountered during the day.

We will also have the opportunity to explore the surrounding wilderness on foot and mokoro and enjoy an up close and personal encounter with Botswana’s flora and fauna. It is important to note that night drives and guided walks are not permitted within the national parks and reserves. These activities are conducted outside the boundaries of the Moremi Game Reserve in the Khwai community area.

Habitat: we spend our time between the dry-land habitats of the lead-wood and camel-thorn woodlands and savannahs and the riverside and marshy back-waters of the Khwai. Time permitting we may visit the lagoons and waterways of Xakanaxa where the largest heronry in southern Africa exists.

Consultant Notes

Wildlife: the Khwai region boasts excellent populations of both bull elephant as well as breeding herds. Lion, leopard, serval and African wildcat are common predators of the region with wild dog and cheetah being less common. Buffalo use this area seasonally with large herds moving in during the summer rains. The swampy areas in the west are home to red lechwe. Other ungulates include tsesebe, blue wildebeest, giraffe, kudu, sable antelope, roan antelope and impala.

Birding: truly one of Botswana birding mecca’s. The western reaches are prime habitat for the uncommon rosy-throated longclaw. The entire length of the river is hunting domain for the bat-hawk. Other interesting raptors here are cuckoo hawk (rare), long-crested eagle and black sparrowhawk. More commonly tawny eagle, Steppe eagle*, lesser-spotted eagle*, Martial eagle, bateleur and African hawk-eagle. The waterways host Africa rail, African crake*, greater painted snipe, Allen’s gallinule*, lesser jacana and lesser moorhen*.

Accommodation: letaka tented camp

Activities: game drives, walking safaris (conditions permitting), night drives and mokoro excurison

Day 9: Letaka Tented Camp (Sat, 2 September)


Moremi Game Reserve

The amazing foresight of Chief Moremi created one of the world's most famous reserves, conserving part of the Okavango Delta and the plains to its east. The reserve covers more than 4871 square kilometres of pristine wilderness, and the varied terrain includes savannah, winding waterways, and thick forest.This diversity supports an incredibly wide spectrum of wildlife, ranging from large herds of buffalo, wildebeest and zebra, to the rare sitatunga and lechwe antelope, and lion, cheetah and packs of wild dog in the open grasslands. The birdlife is prolific and includes most of the 550 bird species recorded on the Botswana national bird list. A range of luxury lodges in the reserve offer visitors the perfect base to experience this corner of paradise.


Day Itinerary

KHWAI TO XAKANAXA / TRAVEL DAY

*full day of extended game drive and journey time with picnic lunch between camps

Habitat: the Manuchira Channel is known as the Khwai River at its eastern most extremity. The day’s journey follows this water course, with the track weaving from the riverside and floodplains into the mopane veld and the woodlands that make Khwai one of the most scenic areas of the Okavango. We pass the magnificent Dombo Hippo Pools in the morning stopping to enjoy the scenery and the antics of the resident hippo.

Consultant Notes

Wildlife: the western mopane veld is home to mostly breeding herds of elephant whilst the eastern reaches of Khwai is home to some impressive old bulls. The mature bulls revel in the cool waters of the Khwai and are far more approachable while drinking and bathing than the breeding herds. The river has an unusually high density of hippo as well as some huge crocodile. Leopard, cheetah, serval and lion are common predators along this route and both Xakanaxa as well as Khwai are included in the home ranges of 2 different packs of wild dog. General game includes southern giraffe, Burchell’s zebra, tessebe and red lechwe with roan and sable antelope being less common residents.

Birding: in the mopane woodlands African hawk-eagle, tawny eagle, Gabar goshawk, little sparrowhawk, African harrier hawk and shikra are common raptors. Mixed bird parties move through the canopy and include red-headed weaver, Stierling’s wren-warbler, scarlet-chested sunbird, neddicky, yellow-breasted apalis, chin-spot batis, Diederik cuckoo* to name but a few. The verges of the swamp form breeding grounds for the rosy-longclaw, black coucal*, long-legged bustard and the African crake*

Day 10: Letaka Tented Camp 


Day Itinerary

XAKANAXA EXPLORATION DAYS – MOREMI GAME RESERVE

Habitat: Moremi lies on the eastern extremity of the Okavango Delta. Habitats here range from wide-open floodplains, marshes, lagoons, papyrus fringed channels, vast reed-beds of Miscanthus and Phragmites, woodland and savannah. As a result of the extremely variable habitat the diversity of both wildlife and birdlife is excellent.

Consultant Notes

Wildlife: every type of mopane habitat is well represented in this drive from the towering cathedral woodlands Xakanaxa to the classic climax mopane woodland and in the drier and harsher habitats, extensive stretches of scrub mopane. The San-ta-Wani region has scattered ephemeral water pans with large floodplains and camel-thorn woodlands. 40 km of the drive is in Moremi Game Reserve with a further 40 km in areas designated for wildlife management where animals roam freely to and from the game reserve.

Birding: a good day for raptors with African hawk-eagle, Gabar goshawk, shikra, little sparrowhawk, dark chanting goshawk, tawny eagle, lesser spotted eagle* and Steppe eagle* all inhabiting the mopane and adjacent woodlands. Other birds common along this route includes most of Botswana’s hornbills including red-billed, southern yellow-billed, African grey, Bradfield’s and the Southern ground hornbills. A large number of brood-parasites may also be seen. Diederick cuckoo*, Levaillant’s cuckoo*, Jacobin cuckoo*, great-spotted cuckoo*, African cuckoo*, common cuckoo*, shaft-tailed whydah, pin-tailed whydah, Eastern paradise whydah, greater honeyguide, and lesser honeyguide.
