Helping Rhinos

Day 1

Arrive Maun, Fly To Leroo La Tau

You'll be met on arrival in Maun and assisted to the plane for the short flight to Leroo La Tau near Makgadikgadi National Park. Depending on your arrival time you'll set out on a game drive to explore the area around the camp. Your guide will help you spot wildlife such as bushbuck, kudu, impala, zebra, wildebeest and lion. After this exciting safari you'll return to camp for drinks by the campfire and a delicious dinner.

Day 2

At Leroo La Tau

This morning you head out into the bush to see animals at the start of the day. As well as the more commonly seen game, you might catch sight of the rare white rhino, whose population in Botswana currently numbers around 60 but is, thanks to conservation efforts, on the increase. You return to the camp for lunch and time to rest, maybe enjoying a dip in the pool. In the afternoon you might opt for a boat safari (water levels permitting) or watch wildlife from the hide built into the riverbank. The camp offers night drives, so you'll have the chance to look for nocturnal species, if you wish.

Day 3

Fly To The Okavango Delta

Today you'll fly to the world-famous Okavango Delta and the camp of your choice. You'll be introduced to your guide before you set off on a safari to experience the rich flora and fauna of the delta. Depending on your camp's location you'll explore by land or water, both equally rewarding and you're sure to have a thoroughly absorbing time. Keep your camera to hand to capture those precious encounters! This evening you can chat to fellow travellers over dinner before you retire to bed for a good night's sleep.

Day 4

In The Okavango Delta

A full day to enjoy all the delta has to offer. A mokoro ride is the iconic way to experience the waterways and lagoon. Sit back as your poler guides the mokoro through the water, and enjoy the scenery, looking out for delicate reed frogs and birds, as well as game on the banks. Lunch is served in camp, and in the late afternoon, after the heat has abated, you'll set off again to enjoy the delta scenery and wildlife. You return to the camp for dinner, and later you can sip a nightcap sitting by the campfire while recalling the day's highlights.

Day 5

Fly To Chobe National Park

Today you bid the Okavango Delta farewell as you fly to Chobe, the final destination on this safari. You're staying at the only permanent lodge in the national park, perfectly positioned for wildlife viewing by both 4x4 and boat. Chobe is known for the vast elephant herds often found near the river, and you can also hope to see sable, red lechwe, giraffe, lion and wild dog, as well as many species of birds. Chobe Game Lodge is unusual in that it has an all-female guiding team, and they take great pride in showing your their park's riches.

Day 6

In Chobe National Park

You have a choice how to spend your day. The lodge offers morning and afternoon game drives, plus leisurely boat safaris early in the day and again at sunset. A mix of both ensures you'll have a comprehensive safari, observing the region from different perspectives. In the middle of day you can relax at the lodge, sitting on one of the shaded decks taking in views of the Chobe River, or cooling off with a swim in the pool. Later you'll dine in the boma, as you look back on all that you've seen and done over the last few days.
