Day 01:
Days 1 - Moremi Game Reserve.

Your first experience of the Okavango Delta is from the air on a scenic flight to Moremi over the Delta and Chief’s Island. Your first two nights on safari will be spent camping in the Xakanaxa /3rd Bridge region of Moremi Game Reserve where you will explore the surrounding wilderness on game drives during the day. This area is particularly well known for wild dog sightings and lion prides often use Third Bridge as a means to cross from one area of the park to another without getting their paws wet!

Day 02:
Days 2 - Moremi Game Reserve.

Moremi Game Reserve has diverse vegetation including broad leafed woodlands and vast areas of marsh which are home to some of the largest buffalo herds in Botswana. Inevitably, with one of their favourite prey species in good number, Moremi’s lion prides are active both day and night.

Day 03:
Days 3 - Khwai Reserve.

You carry on north today to the beautiful area of Khwai  which is sandwiched between Savuti in the north and Moremi in the south. The Khwai River forms a boundary between the reserve and the community area. You will spend the next three nights at a campsite near the river, 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. Within Khwai you will also have the opportunity to see hippos, crocodiles and water birds whilst a dug out canoe trip further adds to the diversity of this area.

Day 04:
Days 4 - Khwai Reserve.

Some of the best wild dog sightings can be found around Khwai particularly during October and November when the herbivores have their young. Elephants have” landscaped” a whole woodland area leaving broken branches and tree trunks which has created a unique habitat of its own favoured by hunting leopards which can hide easily amongst the tangled branches waiting for their prey.

Day 05:
Days 5 - Khwai Reserve

Night drives around Khwai are always a highlight of this unique safari. As darkness falls the nocturnal wildlife comes to life and with the aid of a non-intrusive spotlight you have the opportunity to see species rarely seen during the day such as civets, genets, aardvark, owls, etc and the carnivores are even more active under the cover of darkness.

Day 06:
Days 6 - Savuti Marsh area, Chobe National Park

You leave camp early this morning to drive to the Savuti area of Chobe stopping for a picnic lunch en route. The Savuti Marsh is huge and has several  lion prides that call it home. Leopard sightings are generally very good here and large herds of buffalo thrive on the short grass plains. Your new remote camp will be set up by the time you drive into the new camp with sun-downers served around the fire and a hot shower and a delicious meal awaiting your arrival. 2 more nights here gives you the opportunity of exploring the Savuti area in depth..

Day 07:
Days 7 - Savuti Marsh area, Chobe National Park

Savuti is all about vast savanna and dramatic skies. The lion prides that call the marsh their home are scattered in isolated pockets carefully avoiding conflict with their neighbours. Cheetah also live on this open landscape, hunting from the fringes where they wait to launch their high speed attacks while still keeping a careful eye out for their larger cousins.

Day 08:
Days 8 - Savuti Marsh area, Chobe National Park

The woodland areas in Savuti are mainly mopane and are a firm favourite of elephant and often large herds can be seen browsing amongst the trees and enjoying the mud wallows as the water recedes. In the hills there are ancient rock paintings and the whole area is well known for its birdlife.

Day 09:
Days 9 - Northern Chobe National Park.

For your last 2 nights you will move on to northern Chobe. Known for its vast herds of elephants and beautiful carmine bee-eaters which are prolific in this area. Dominated by the Chobe River and with Namibia on the opposite bank the floodplains of Northern Chobe attract many bird species and aquatic mammals.

Day 10:
Days 10 - Northern Chobe National Park.

You end your mobile adventure with a boat cruise along the Chobe floodplains for a unique view of the wildlife that comes to graze and drink along the water’s edge. As you cruise through the waterways you come eye to eye with crocodiles, hippos and buffalo and kingfishers can be viewed from just a few feet away as they hunt for their food. A safari from a whole new perspective.

Day 11:
​ Day 11 – Homeward Bound or on to your next Adventure

After your final morning safari you will be dropped off at Kasane Airport for your flight home, or we can arrange further adventures for you at nearby Victoria Falls, luxury boat cruises or photographic safaris on the Chobe River.

“Thank you again for a perfect holiday”

You really took on board what we said about liking the birds, the wildlife, wanting somewhere quirky/ unusual to stay. Everywhere you selected was just perfect and we met some lovely people.

We just wanted to say thank you for such a great holiday. We had a tremendous time. I suspect you've already been told about Super Saturday, but we had a great time every day; lots of variety and very busy viewing. The group got on well and I think we all enjoyed it. We had lots of fun with Ian ensuring that he caught the front legs of lions in the correct  Kathryn position. The guide - Sam - was excellent. He really loved Super Saturday and will spend for ever telling his mates about it. He was on a huge roll!

First of all, thank you so much for taking on board our requirements and bolting this trip together. Your detail investigating Okakambe and the golf course is greatly appreciated. We have had a truly memorable time. I can’t believe we started planning this trip over a year ago and now we have done it! Cornerstone: David and Peter had a fun game of golf. A perfect start to the trip (and easy to find). Okakambe: I know I mailed about this but Eddi, Kathrin, the horses and everyone who looked after me made a lasting impression. Erongo: A perfect peaceful place for us to settle into the trip after my riding etc. The trails are a great way to explore. Okaukuejo: Amazing! We did have some fantastic game sightings from here. Namutoni: On the way here we had great sightings of a family of 13 elephants and much more. This end of the pan seemed greener and offered more opportunities for us. Okonjima: This place is a haven and captivating. The enthusiasm of the guides and people are an inspiration. We watched a pangolin being tagged one night and saw three white rhino whilst hiding behind a bush on foot!

We have been customers of Your Safari before and enjoyed a fantastic experience in Namibia, so when the opportunity came to take a tour with them to India on the quest for wild tigers, we jumped at it. Again the experience was fantastic. In conjunction with local guides we had a fantastic two weeks, taking in the cultural melting pot of Delhi, the elegance of Jaipur - including the imposing Amer Palace and the breath-taking majesty of the Taj Mahal. But of course the prime reason for the tour was the safari drives in the National Parks and this did not disappoint. We had excellent sightings of tigers in all three parks that we visited and took some great photographs. But there was so much more to see than tigers and we spent time in the forests observing the deer, the magnificent Gaur (largest bovines in the world), the fascinating behaviors of the Langur Monkeys and birds of all varieties, including eagles and vultures. As a special bonus, we also had sightings of the elusive Sloth Bear. India is an incredible country and you have to embrace the organised chaos at times. But the people are fantastic and friendly and we felt very safe throughout. All in all, another wonderful experience from Your Safari. (and next stop for us a self drive tour of British Columbia, arranged of course by... Your Safari.

We have had a fantastic trip, saw tons of wildlife and just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help. The baby in the zebra pic had been born on the road less than five minutes before we got there and Bob took this as it got up for the first time. One and a half hours later we saw it running with its mum to catch up to the herd. Magic! There were about 30 of these elephants at the water hole just as we arrived at Okaucuejo – they even came back for another show the next night - a bit before the two rhinos were squaring up for a tussle. We have so many great memories and are just getting 360, (of the 1500+ total we took), printed to make up an album. We absolutely loved walking at both Etendeka and Okonjima. We never thought you could get so close to a cheetah without being eaten alive!!! Bob got some lovely pictures of very relaxed cats! We are saving our pennies so we can go and do it all again.

After a year and a half of planning and building excitement we finally had our safari this November. It was everything and more than what we expected. From the initial contact with Kathryn, through all the planning, to the safari itself, everything went very smoothly, the accommodations were above and beyond , each one unique and interesting. We couldn't wait for the end of the day to see where we would be next! We toured Namibia plus did an animal safari which will be one of the highlights of our lives. To see wild beasts in their natural environment is truly something to treasure and appreciate. Our guides John and Jules Birch were so helpful from the minute they picked us up until they deposited us at our flight home . John's help and hints with photos enabled us to get some really great shots , his knowledge of the animals and their habits was invaluable in sightings. He and Jules were very caring and we had a lot of fun and laughs, we left as life time friends. I purchased a pair of small binoculars before we left and so happy I did. If you don't mind getting dirty, love adventure and fun and want a small group of people on your trip this is the company for you. When we return to Africa we will definitely be using Your Safari again
