2 Nights Nxai Pan
Nxai Pan is one of the largest salt pans of Botswana offering unique safari experiences with its live sightings of game and birdlife congregating to the water hole. A good population of elephants, springbok, giraffe, Ostrich, lions and other general game are found here. The Nxai Pan becomes perky with the zebra migration during the raining season, and birders appreciate the many bird species during the time. During the dry season sightings of Impala, gemsbok, wildebeest, hartebeest, cheetah, wild dog, brown hyena, bat-eared fox and elephants are seen.
4 nights CKGR
The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is situated right in the centre of Botswana. The reserve is characterized by saltpans and ancient riverbeds. The Central Kalahari is at its most best in the first few months of the year, during the rainy season when vast plains burst with sweet grasses attracting thousands of springbok and gemsbok. At this time the reserve flourish with vegetation, fulfilling number of giraffe, wildebeest, ostrich, cheetah and the famous black maned lions of the Kalahari are commonly seen, and general game congregating on the overflowing pans, moving out of the thickets.
3 nights Moremi Game Reserve
The Moremi Game Reserve boasts pans, floodplains, lagoons, grasslands, forests of acacia trees, savannahs and dense Mopane Woodlands. The magnificent contrasting landscapes host abundant game including large herds of buffalo, wildebeest, elephant and zebra during the dry season. Wild Dogs are regularly sighted here. The sitatunga and lechwe live in the papyrus banks of the waterways with lions, cheetahs and packs of wild dogs hunting in the open grassland. The Moremi Game Reserve is home to over 400 of the Okavango’s bird species, including the African Fish Eagle, Crested Crane and Sacred Ibis.
2 nights Mababe Depression
Mababe depression lies in the southern part of Chobe National Park, Botswana’s first national park, and also the most biologically diverse. A depression is a low area surrounded by higher land and usually characerised by interior drainage, once a large lake, with the inland delta of the Savuti, the Savuti Marsh. This gigantic depression, with a surface that is sometimes bare and sometimes covered with thorny bushes, is evidence of an ancient inland lake. It is assumed that the Savute area was once part of the giant Makgadikgadi Lake. When it began to dry up 30,000 years ago, it left behind a gigantic body of water, Lake Mababe, which eventually disappeared. The basin is now completely dry, except for the Khwai river that drains into the southern edge of the depression and becomes an important source of water during the peak of the dry season, when herds of 1000 to 2000 buffaloes gather – along with hundreds of elephants and giraffes. Due to the large herds of buffalo the area also hosts good concentrations of lions and hyenas, occasional cheetah might be spotted as they are known to travel between Mababe and Savuti to the north.
2 nights Savuti Marsh
Savuti Marsh is home to exceptional wildlife-viewing opportunities in one of Botswana’s most popular Chobe National park. The channel has for the past seven years recommenced flowing after an almost three-decade-long dry spell. During the dry season wildlife compete for water and the limited shade, ensuring excellent game-viewing. Savuti is home to prides of lions, cheetah, elephant, wildebeest, and more general game. The wet season shows off the area’s excellent birdlife, with over 450 species known to make their home in the park. Remnants of the nomadic San’s occupation of the area can be seen in their rock art found in the Gubatsa Hills.
