Experience the peace and tranquillity of the Okavango Delta and the teeming wildlife of Moremi and Savuti on a hassle-free fly-in safari. You'll spend two days in the Delta in one of its most spectacular permanent water sites. The next two nights will be spent tracking animals and bird watching in Moremi, followed by the variety of wildlife of the Savuti.

DAYS 1 - 2, Explore the Okavango Delta You will be met on arrival in Maun, where you will board a scheduled light aircraft charter to the Okavango Delta - one of Africa's finest wildlife areas. The Okavango, Moremi Game Reserve and neighbouring private reserves create an enormous wildlife sanctuary with some of the most magnificent game viewing in Africa. Enjoy mokoro trips in eco-friendly dugout canoes, combined with walking to surrounding lagoons and islands in the concession. Bird watching opportunities are outstanding, and there is fishing for bream and tiger fish.

DAYS 3 - 4, View wildlife in Moremi You will fly to the Moremi Game Reserve where you will stay at Camp Moremi for 2 nights. Here, where the life-giving waters of the Okavango meet up with the vast Kalahari, ancient Mopane forests, open grassland, seasonal floodplains and riverine habitats have formed, creating one of the most magnificent and welcoming animal sanctuaries in all Africa. You'll be thrilled by the excitement of tracking animals in open Land Rovers. Game drives are conducted by experienced naturalists. Bird watching is excellent throughout the year, with powerboat visits to the heronries on Gadikwe.

DAYS 5 - 6, Experience the Savute Board your northward flight to the Savute region and the Savute Safari Lodge peering out from ancient Camelthorn trees on the banks of the dry Savute channel. This area is part of the dynamic Savuti ecosystem renowned for its large concentration of elephant and large lion prides. Thousands of zebra visit Savuti en route to the new grass upholstering Mababe in the south, and return around February on their way home to Linyanti. They share the marsh with tsessebe, wildebeest, giraffe and cheetah. The rains also welcome thousands of migrant birds that swell Savuti's existing 300 species.
