Your journey starts on the banks of the Savute channel a magnificent wildlife area inside the Chobe National Park boundary. You’ll spend 2 nights at the Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge which places you in the hot spot for the abundant predator prey action that this area is famous for. The Savuti marsh attracts a huge variety of wildlife year round as well as an annual zebra migration, that is spectacular. Savute is also home to some very rare rock paintings by Bushmen who once inhabited the region, and its little forests of ancient Baobabs.
A short scenic flight on your third day, will take you deep into the Moremi Wildlife Reserve. Nestled on the edge of a leadwood and fig tree forest, overlooking the vast Khwai River floodplains lies Belmond Khwai River Lodge. Here you are close to Africa’s heartbeat, at the centre of a world that has not altered much since life began. Enjoy twice daily game drives and even a night safari with spotlight to spy on the nocturnal animals in the bush. Relax with a spa treatment in your own room, and enjoy the wildlife that visits camp from the privacy of your own deck.
Your final two nights in Botswana will be spent on an island in the middle of the Okavango Delta at the newly refurbished Belmond Eagle Island Lodge. Explore the floodplains and channels of this watery wonderland that few people are privileged to witness. Travel by boat or traditional mokoro through “hippo highways” in the tall papyrus. When the water levels are lower, you can enjoy land-based game drives as well.
All three lodges on this fantastic itinerary have just a handful of exclusive, stand alone luxury rooms.
