DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 1: Okavango Delta

If you opted for a Botswana Safari to witness the world’s most awe-inspiring wilderness locations, you made the right choice. To make this happen, plan for a Botswana Safari Camps in admiring Okavango Delta. The entire Delta is packed with dry grasslands, terrains, wild animals, and what not. A day well spent in any of the available Botswana Safari camps will make you aware of the wilderness of this location. You will enjoy a sip of fresh cappuccino or wine while gazing out from your camp. Spot the elephants roaming freely in the Delta to make it more beautiful and admirable.

Day 2: Moremi Game Reserve

In case you are not aware of the popularity of this reserve, we would like to tell you that Moremi Game Reserve has been voted the best game reserve in the African continent in 2008. The reserve is a first of its kind because it is the only reserve which was founded by a group of local residents. When in the reserve, you will get to witness some of the most stunning scenery in the country with an equally impressive ecosystem. The park has a couple of great campsites which you should not miss experiencing. Book a full day in the reserve and enjoy camping in the lap of the mother nature.

Day 3: Gabane

Want to explore hills on foot, head straight to Gabane to fulfill your desires. The Gabane village is packed with countless surprising elements. Unlike a boring village, Gabane is quite industrious and boasts an array of small manufacturers. You will find this village seeling the best of their pottery and glasswork with a pride. While exploring their products, you may wish to buy some which would make the local residents happy and appraised. Apart from this, the village is a great place to go hiking.

Day 4: Masai Mara

A drive to Masai Mara will take you to the land of mammals and golden savannah.  Things to admire at Maasai Mara are many and you will be needing a full day to explore and delve deep into the park.  Look across the Mara River towards Tanzania and the plains of the Serengeti. It is across this crocodile and hippo infested river that the Great Wildebeest Migration makes its bold crossing, in pursuit of greener pastures. A lucky few may have the opportunity to observe this dangerous spectacle. Do not miss the incredible boisterous young males fight for mating rights and bull elephants drinking water in a group.

Day 5: Makadgandi salt pans

Step into the land of salt pans which dominates Makadgandi in all senses. The miles-long salt pans were once submerged by a lake which was of the size of Switerzland. Walking over these salt pans will give you a sense of solitude and a reason to escape from modern life. You will find a sense of peace while walking into the land where you will hardly see any human besides your family and a local guide. You may also spot some wilds roaming freely in the pans and it may include the big cats. While rhinos can be spotted most frequently, keep your eyes open to spot some more. Explore untamed areas of Makadgandi and get the best out of your Botswana Safari. You may also opt to stay overnight in Botswana Safari Camps. If not, return back to your hotel before the dark.

Day 6: Kalahari Game Reserve

If we were asked to describe this reserve in just three words, we would say it’s wild, mysterious and splendid. Experience the magic of Kalahari Game Reserve on the seventh day of your Botswana safari. The site is open for Botswana Safari camps which makes you stay overnight in the reserve. Spotting the wilds in the wilderness can be done better here. In summers, you could notice a number of wildebeests of all shapes and sizes roaming massively on the land. In short, the Kalahari reserve of Africa is capable of showing the true colors of the wilderness while staying in one of the available camps.

Day 7: Selinda

Head on to a last little taste of luxury after your days of epic camping adventure. Return to the Selinda Reserve in the Linyanti area by light aircraft and spend the next two evenings at the beautiful Selinda Camp. Being close to nature and the ground is a different feeling which you will not get in a luxurious lodge. This tented Botswana safari will give you a perfect place to relax and feel the fresh air. The camps are too stunning to look and are totally capable of outraging the surrounding valleys. Nestled amongst the trees on the banks of the eastern Selinda Spillway, the camps appears irresistible to step out. This reserve takes you out of the Delta but is a new and unique paradise that is rich with wildlife. The camp itself is a charming blend of the luxurious and the laid back, with stunning views over the plains and savannas. There are some game drives and bush walks which you can enjoy while your stay in the Selinda.

Day 8: Jewan

On the last day of your Botswana Safari, visit the place of stones and pebbles - Jewan. This is one of the wonders of Botswana where you will find more pebbles than the land. The stones in pebbles might not be as precious as expensive ones but they are actually valuable than a normal stone you would find on the planet earth. Do give it a visit to explore the rarity of mother nature.

Day 9: Departure

Your 7-day Botswana Tour is finally completing and today you will be saying Cheerios to the scenic beauty of this place. With lots of special memories in your heart, you will transfer to the airport for a happy return. Do not miss to enjoy your farewell breakfast in the hotel before the exit formalities. You will love the sweet gesture shown by the hotel staff.
