The Great North Road is our classic 10 night Maun to Kasane serviced safari (or visa versa) traversing the Xakanaxa and Khwai regions of the Moremi Game Reserve, Savute in the north and the Chobe River front bordering on the Caprivi or Zambesi region of Namibia. This safari encompasses the diverse Okavango & Moremi eco- systems to the dry northern areas of Savute and Chobe.
We highly recommend starting or ending this safari in Victoria Falls… Your days on safari are focused predominantly on game drives exploring amazing wildlife areas however the safari starts or ends with a one hour scenic flight over the Okavango Delta and Chiefs Island. When in the Khwai area a mekoro excursion is included.
ROUTE: (MAUN – KASANE)

Day 1 & 2: Camping in the Xakanaxa/3rd Bridge Area of the Moremi Game Reserve & Okavango Delta
“Dumela / Hello! Welcome to Botswana!” We will be there to give you a warm Botswana welcome when you land at Maun Airport. You will meet your pilot for your stunning light aircraft scenic flight over the Okavango Delta and Chief’s Island. This flight gives you a fish eagle’s eye view of this amazing ecosystem. When you land at your remote bush airstrip within the Moremi Game Reserve, your guide will provide you with a snack pack on arrival and will be waiting to transfer you to your mobile camp with a game drive en route. The friendly, attentive staff will help you feel immediately at home and brief you on what to look forward to on your safari. The magic of a mobile camp becomes apparent as the sun sets and you enjoy drinks around the fire before a starlit dinner and a great night’s rest after falling asleep to the sounds of the African bush.

Spending our first two nights camping in the Xakanaxa / Third Bridge area, we explore the surrounding wilderness on game drives during the day. The Moremi Game Reserve protects around a third of the entire Okavango Delta ecosystem – some 5 000km2 (1 930 square miles).

Day 3, 4 & 5: Camping in the Khwai Area of the More Game Reserve
Following an early breakfast, we pack up the camp and continue our journey to Khwai, stopping for a bush picnic lunch en route. The Khwai River forms the boundary between the reserve and the local Khwai Community Area. We spend the next three nights camping at a campsite in Khwai area of Moremi Game Reserve. You will also experience a 2½-hour mokoro trip, discovering channels and lagoons at a relaxed pace in a traditional dug-out canoe.

Day 6, 7 & 8: Camping at Salute within the Chobe National Park
We head further north en route to Chobe National Park, were we spend the following three nights camping at a pristine bush campsite in the Savute region and exploring the dry landscape on game drives. Savute is an area that can change dramatically, with the character of the place changing completely depending on the flowing or drying up of the Savute Channel. In 2010, water from the Savute Channel reached the Marsh for the first time in three decades (after a long dry period during which resident lions learned to prey on elephants coming to drink at isolated waterholes). The presence of water can transform these dynamics and the only way to find out what will happen next, is to visit Savute with us and see for yourself!

Day 9 & 10: Camping at Chobe River Front within the Chobe National Park
Leaving this parched landscape, we continue our journey north to the contrasting Chobe region of the park. We spend the last two nights camping in a wilderness campsite near the Chobe River, exploring the riverbanks and surrounding flood plains on game drives. On Day 9 you will enjoy an afternoon boat cruise on the Chobe River which departs from Kasane.

Day 11: Safari ends in Kasane
Following breakfast and a short game drive your safari will end in Kasane at around 09h00.
