5 DAY CAMPING SAFARI – Maun to Maun
2 NIGHTS LODGE, 2 NIGHTS CAMPING
• Serviced camping in national parks
• Pristine & remote campsites

• Private tour
Botswana is one of Africa’s finest wildlife destinations. Go on Safari in a 4×4 Landcruiser, to view some of Africa’s famous wildlife . Experience camping in the bush, in the Moremi National Park. A large part of Botswana is arid, yet the Okavango River runs through the centre of the Kalahari Desert. This creates the unique ecosystem, the Okavango Delta, from which the abundant bird and wildlife populations flourish.
DAY 1: Arrival in Maun
You will be met at Maun Airport, and transferred to the Drifters Maun Lodge. The lodge is located on the banks of the seasonal Boteti River outside Maun, and offers comfortable accommodation in tented units overlooking the river. This afternoon there will be time to relax at the pool, or a walk to explore the local village of Chenoga can be arranged. Tonight you enjoy a catered meal at the lodge.
DAY 2 – 3: Moremi / Khwai
You have breakfast at the lodge, before departing for Moremi National Park. You will travel in a well-equipped, open 4×4 Land Cruiser, with our local Motswana guide and a camp assistant. The 4×4 isn’t just for show, as the national parks are truly wild places, the roads just tracks in the sand. We will game drive in the park for most of the day, arriving towards sunset at our exclusive private campsite, which is no more than a GPS point in the bush, completely secluded and undeveloped. It is as if we are the first people here, and are alone in the world. We bring everything we will need with us, and leave nothing behind when we depart.
We spend a second night, camping at either the same site, and spending the day game driving, or moving to a new site, game driving on the way. Road and weather conditions, and booking availability will determine the exact itinerary.
Meals: B L D; B L D
The Private Botswana Tour offers the added value of a serviced camping experience in the national parks. During the camping part of the tour designated staff will handle the camp setup, with our staff erecting your tent and taking care of all camp duties. There is no participation required from you.
DAY 4: Maun Lodge
This morning we do our last game drive, on the way out of the park. We then head back to the Drifters Maun Lodge.
