Botswana’s Chobe National Park is a dynamic wilderness. A sweeping expanse of savannah is dotted by rocky outcrops surrounding a marsh and the Savute Channel. Unpredictable wet and dry cycles shape the landscape and wildlife. The Savute Channel flows freely again after nearly 30 years of lying dormant, one of Northern Botswana’s greatest mysteries. Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge hosts a cluster of twelve room residences raised on wooden platforms. Each has an outdoor lounge and is shaded by a traditional thatch roof. The large, private decks are furnished with easy chairs and a hammock. These are ideal for viewing wildlife, or for enjoying a private dinner in complete privacy. Perched on the banks of the Savute Channel, with an elevated view of the river, Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge is a spectacular base from which to explore the area. Savute is also unrivaled for its sightings of excellent predator / prey interaction and is a ‘must stay’ on any Southern Africa safari.   Not to be missed is the Zebra Migration during the months of February and October, when the nutritious grasses of the Savute Marsh attract large herds of zebra. Savute is also home to some very rare rock paintings by Bushmen who once inhabited the region, and its little forests of ancient Baobabs. Ancient treasures in the bush….out in the bush, where rocks rear up among stony hills, are a collection of paintings that take your breath away. These works by Bushmen are thought to be more than 1,500 years old. After viewing these paintings, continue to the amazing baobab grove—a cathedral-like cluster of 13 giant trees that rival the Bushmen’s paintings in age. Stand among these towering columns at sunset, as the evening light bathes them in a russet glow and drinks are handed round—and wonder at this ancient land.
Day 3
  • Mack Air shared charter to Khwai River Lodge (± 45 minutes)
  • Stay at Belmond Khwai River Lodge in a Luxury Room for 3 nights
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner included
  • Twice daily scheduled activities included
Nestled on the edge of a leadwood and fig tree forest, overlooking the vast Khwai River floodplains and beyond into the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, 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. You can sense the big game heritage from the moment you arrive. Belmond Khwai River Lodge is home to luxury rooms seated on raised wooden platforms with traditional African thatch roof. Private decks with easy chairs and hammocks provide panoramic views. Inside you’ll find a netted four-poster bed, an elegant bathroom, a stocked mini bar and discreet air conditioning. Activities offered at the camp include morning and afternoon game drives in open Land cruisers, as well as after-dark spotlight game drives. A cultural visit to the local village can be arranged, as well as guided safari walks along the Khwai River. Enjoy rare sighting of shy gentle animals that only come out at night – the aardvark (the mismatched mammal that appears to have the snout of a pig, the ears of a rabbit, the body of an ant eater, and the feet and tail of a kangaroo); the brush-tailed porcupine with its brush-like quills that make a peculiar noise when rattled; and the spring hare, all coming out of their hiding places to forage. They might also see the elusive small and large spotted genets on a nocturnal hunting spree. For those wishing to enjoy further pampering, the lodge has a ‘Naturally Wild’ spa facility. Guests are able to enjoy indulgent massages and body wraps in the spa or in the privacy of their own tent.
Day 6
  • Mack Air shared charter flight to Eagle Island (± 30 minutes)
  • Stay at Belmond Eagle Island Lodge in a Luxury Room for 2 nights
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner included
  • Twice daily scheduled activities included
Your time in Botswana will be spent viewing game in the beautiful and unique wilderness of the Okavango Delta and its surrounds. Over 1100 animal, fish, bird and plant species exist in the various ecosystems which comprise the Delta. Few people are privileged enough to visit this inaccessible area, as can be seen and felt by the abundance of wildlife and the utter tranquility in the camps.   The luxury rooms at Belmond Eagle Island Lodge are housed on raised wooden platforms and shaded by a traditional African thatch roof. Private decks command inspiring views and are complete with easy chairs and a hammock. In-room amenities include an en-suite bathroom, four-poster bed with mosquito netting, fully-stocked mini bar and discreet air conditioning. Situated on the island of Xaxaba, this cool retreat, shaded by a canopy of indigenous trees and Ilala Palms, overlooks a surrounding lagoon fed by the tranquil waterways of the Delta. The area offers prolific birdlife and mammal sightings. It is also the site of one of the most romantic bars in the world, the Fish Eagle Bar, as quoted by The New York Times. Belmond Eagle Island Lodge offers game viewing by mokoro (traditional dugout canoe) or by motorized boat, which is particularly enjoyable as you sip your sundowner at the end of the day. When water levels are low (December through March), morning, afternoon and evening game drives are available. And for the intrepid and the energetic, safari walks are offered all year round.
