Botswana is a peaceful and prosperous country, home to vast game reserves where some of the largest herds in southern Africa roam free, together with the most spectacular and varied bird life. This 8 day luxury Botswana safari covers all the highlights of this fantastic wildlife region: Savuti, Kwetsani (Jao concession) and Chitabe. Start your journey in Kasane and your first three nights will be at Savuti located in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve that borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park. It is situated close to the source of the Savute Channel on Osprey Lagoon, one of the many lagoons within the Linyanti Swamp system, and between two elephant ‘corridors’ – all of which results in a plethora of wildlife on game drives along the Savute. Next stop, travel by charter flight to Kwetsani, one of the most remote camps in the entire Okavango Delta, located on an elongated island covered with palm, mangosteen and fig trees. The surrounding floodplains are home to a number of “Delta specials” – species that are found in few other places on Earth. Some of these may even be seen from the privacy of one of the five “tree-house” chalets, beautifully furnished en-suite units each comprising a bedroom and lounge, and made of canvas, wood and glass. Your final stop will be Qorokwe Camp so you will take a charter flight to the heart of the Okavango Delta and spend 3 nights at Qorokwe Camp. Located in a thoroughly intimate environment amidst the mopane and acacia bushveld and riverine forest in this private concession, an abundance of wildlife can be seen including elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah, giraffe, tsessebe and impala among many others.

Savuti provides front-row seats to amazing wildlife viewing and the mysteries of the ebb and flow of the Savute Channel waters. Perched high on the banks of the Channel, the camp looks down on a miraculous ribbon of territory that has been both savannah and river over the last few years.
Whether experienced in a dry, wet or transitional phase, the area has always been renowned for its game viewing. It holds a magnetic attraction for elephants, amongst other plains game and predators. Large canvas-and-thatch rooms (including a family unit) face the channel, and activities vary with the changes in the landscape.
Get up close to elephants at the camp’s log-pile hide and watch as they play and quench their thirst at the small water pan.
Kwetsani offers the perfect Okavango ‘combination’ experience. Its extremely remote location gives access to both water and dry land areas, allowing guests to see all aspects of the Delta’s makeup. Unique tree-house style tents provide exceptional views from their elevated positions, looking out over floodplains dotted with game.
The five units combine with the cool thatched main area to form a self-contained safari world – a fusion of creature comforts and incredible wildlife moments. Access to Hunda Island for game drives, plus water activities in search of species rarely encountered elsewhere, contribute to Kwetsani’s comprehensive activity offering.
Lie back on the loungers at the pool on a sunny afternoon while looking out for wildlife and “Delta Specials” or enjoy sightings from the comfort of your private room.
The name Qorokwe means “the place where the buffalo broke through the bush into the water” and is evocative of the high-density game area in which the camp is situated. The diverse habitats of the south-eastern Okavango reveal support a wealth of wildlife, earning the area’s well-deserved reputation as a top Botswana safari destination.
Qorokwe Camp has nine tented suites, one of which is a spacious family suite with its own splash pool. En-suite facilities feature a convertible indoor/outdoor shower. Built on raised wooden platforms, the main area includes a dining area, lounge, library, bar and an infinity pool overlooking an expansive lagoon. Highlights of Qorokwe’s dining experiences include festive boma evenings and scrumptious pizzas from the camp’s bespoke oven.
Keep a look out for the secretive white rhino which have been reintroduced into this area.
