The Great North Road Moremi to Chobe Mobile Camping Safari


10 Nights / 11 days Serviced Safari inmeru style en suite tents on a mobile safari

The Great North Road Moremi to Chobe Safari is our classic 10 night Maun to Kasane serviced safari (or visa versa) traversing the Xakanaxa and Khwai regions of the Moremi Game Reserve, Savute in the north and the Chobe River front bordering on the Caprivi or Zambesi region of Namibia . This safari encompasses the diverse Okavango & Moremi eco- systems to the dry northern areas of Savute and Chobe National Park. We highly recommend starting or ending this safari in Victoria Falls. Your days on safari are focused predominantly on game drives exploring amazing wildlife areas however the safari starts or ends with a one hour scenic flight over the Okavango Delta and Chiefs Island. When in the Khwai area a mokoro excursion is included.

On safari the camp staff attend to your comfort by erecting and dismantling the camp and preparing delicious meals cooked on an open fire. A serviced safari has walk in en suite meru style tents complete with your own bucket shower and bush loo, staff who prepare delicious meals throughout your safari and a camp assistant to take care of all camp duties. Book this safari as part of a small group of maximum 7 guests or book the entire departure as a private safari for families, honeymooners or special interests etc. A private vehicle and guide is available on any of our scheduled safaris subject to availability which enables you to share the camp with others but you have the exclusive use of your own private vehicle and guide.

A Typical Day on Safari
The day starts with the rising of the sun. Your wake-up call will be between 5am and 6am – a gentle “koko” (knock knock in Setswana) at the entrance of your tent. A camp assistant will be on hand to fill your wash-hand basin with steaming hot water and freshly made tea and coffee will be served around the campfire A light breakfast will be served before the early morning game drive which consists of tea, plunger coffee, juice, rusks, fruit, cereal, toast and jams. The best time of day to enjoy game viewing is in the early morning and late afternoon as most animals retreat to the shadows to rest during the heat of the day. Having spent the morning exploring the surrounding wilderness in search of Botswana’s hidden treasures, you will return to camp for lunch under the shade of a Marula tree (subject to availability). Lunch consists of salads, freshly baked bread on the open campfire, cold meats and pickles. Just as the animals retreat to escape the heat of mid-day, so will you. This is your time to enjoy reading, chatting, relaxing or taking a nap. Later in the afternoon you will head out into the wilderness once more as the animals awake from their days’ slumber and gather at the watering holes. As the sun sets on the horizon, one can only marvel at the sheer splendour of an African sunset and with refreshments in hand, toast to the wonder of nature.

On your return to camp, enjoy a hot shower under the starry night sky and gather around the warmth of the campfire to relive the day’s events and excitement. A three course dinner is served with South African wines against the magical backdrop of the African night sky. Dinner consists of Botswana beef or a lamb potjie followed by banana mekoros with chocolate or malva pudding with custard. Retreating to the comfort of your tent after enjoying a nightcap around the campfire, you can fall asleep to the calls of the African wild. Good night. On moving days, the safari team will pack down the camp, then travel to the next camp site and prepare the camp at the next location. When travelling between locations, the route is most commonly through the parks and reserves and is therefore an extension of your daily game drives. A picnic lunch will be served en-route.
