Our 6 Night Okavango, Chobe & Savuti Safari matches three of northern Botswana’s best safari areas. On this safari you will be viewing wildlife and soaking up the beauty from many different angles, namely: houseboat, game drive vehicle, mokoro (dug out) and on foot. For the Chobe area we make use of the Chobe Princess, a houseboat, officially based on the Namibian bank of the Chobe River. Time on the Chobe Princess is arguably the best way to ‘experience the Chobe’. From here the safari flies you to the Savuti Channel, a step closer to the Okavango Delta where big game viewing is the main agenda. This is done from open vehicle game drives. Lastly we visit the worlds largest inland delta, the Okavango. The mokoro based game / bird viewing experience in the Okavango experience is often the reason that travelers come back to Africa again and again!
