Begin at Camp Okavango, at the heart of the delta. Offering year-round water activities, this beautiful camp affords idyllic views over the delta. The airy wooden suites blend into the natural surroundings, with a large communal area providing numerous places to relax and enjoy the wilderness location.
With flexibility, explore the waterways, reed banks and islands of the delta. Move slowly through this watery landscape in a traditional mokoro, spotting wildlife on land, in the sky and beneath the water. For children, there is the chance to go fishing. With the help of the camp guides, attempt to catch local tiger fish and bream.
Fly deeper into the delta, to the Moremi Game Reserve – an archipelago amidst this expanse of water. Stay at the traditionally styled Camp Moremi, with its unobtrusive canvas tents on elegant teak decks. Spot an array of species, including elephants, leopards and antelopes. Explore by boat and 4x4, heading deep into this green wilderness. The air swarms with birdlife, including imperious fish eagles.
Continue to the Savute Channel, which feeds the rich Savute Marsh. This area offers some of the region’s best game viewing and hosts the second-largest zebra migration on the continent. Watch as the marshlands fill with these striped animals, preyed on by an array of hungry predators.
Stay at the elegant Savute Safari Lodge, which looks out over an area populated by numerous bull elephants. Secluded and spacious, this relaxed camp is wonderfully positioned for exploring the surrounding landscape in open 4x4 vehicles.
CHOBE NATIONAL PARK
Finish with two nights spent in the Chobe National Park, home to a vast elephant population. Stay at the largest of the four camps, Chobe Game Lodge. Positioned within the park, this comfortable lodge gives children room to explore and make use of its beautiful communal areas and sweeping decks.
Spend time driving through Chobe’s woodland-dominated landscape or take a quiet boat cruise down the Chobe River. Relaxed and slow-moving, the latter offers lovely views across the river, as well as great wildlife viewing.
