11 Day Adventurer Safari Itinerary

Day 1: Kasane

We meet and welcome you to Botswana in Kasane. On this day we set up camp in Kasane and prepare a wholesome lunch.

In the afternoon we set out on a boat cruise on the Chobe River. Chobe boat cruises are a wonderful way to experience the Chobe National Park. Large herds of elephants are common in the park as they make their way to the river for a drink and onto the islands in the river to feast off the sweet grass. Puku and lechwe antelopes are common on the Chobe floodplains. Herds of elephants cross the Chobe River to the islands which is a site to behold.

We return to camp in the early evening, where you get to prepare your own dinner, discuss the days events, get to know your safari team and be briefed on the day-to-day itinerary of your safari.

After having enjoyed a wholesome breakfast, we depart for Chobe.

The Serondella area (or Chobe riverfront), situated in the extreme Northeast of the park, has as its main geographical features lush floodplains and dense woodland of mahogany, teak and other hardwoods now largely reduced by heavy elephant pressure.

The Chobe River, which flows along the north-east border of the park, is a major watering spot, especially in the dry season (May through October) for large breeding herds of elephants, as well as families of giraffe, sable and Cape buffalo. Birding is also excellent here.

Day 10: Chief’s Island Trip - Mokoro Trip

Chief’s Island is the most exciting concession and the largest land mass in the Okavango Delta, stretching from the southern Okavango to the permanent water near Mombo. It is an extension of the mainland and, because it is slightly higher than the general level of the delta, it never floods.

Chief’s Island is home to a vast number of animals and birds who benefit from the Kalahari sandveld habitat with close proximity to water.

The Chief’s Island Day Trip leaves from Island Safari Lodge’s jetty just after sunrise and returns late afternoon or just before sunset, but can be adjusted slightly according to circumstances. This trip is completely dependent on water levels, and will only be available when these are sufficient.

It takes about 3–4 hours to get to Chief’s Island. The day is spent exploring the channels and enjoying the rich diversity of the fauna and flora of this area.

Please note that should water levels not permit for this excursion, it will be replaced with a Mokoro Day trip.
