Safari Highlights:

  • Guided bush walks on Chiefʼs Island
  • Mokoro trips in the Okavango Delta
  • Game drives in Savuti Marsh of Chobe Park

Day 1 to 3: Oddballs’ Enclave - Okavango Delta

This Okavango & Savuti Lodge Safari begins at the airport in Maun where a Delta Air representative assists you with catching a small plane into the delta. Our flight takes us to the remote Oddballs’ Enclave, set on a small island only accessible by light aircraft.

The camp is located near Chief’s Island, adjacent to the highly acclaimed Moremi Game Reserve of Botswana. Touching down in the heart of the Okavango Delta, your designated guide is there to greet you. Each guide is assigned to two guests at most for the duration of your stay and will lead you into the delta on private excursions.

As locals who have grown up here, the guides know this wild ecosystem intimately and are able to share in-depth knowledge with guests. Your guide takes you on mokoro trips early in the morning and afternoon, poling along the watery channels in his own dug-out canoe while you sit back and relax. The guide stands in the back of his traditional, wooden mokoro moving the canoe through the shallow waters with a long pole.

On the mokoro trips you stop at secluded islands, including Chief's Island in Moremi Game Reserve, to embark on nature walks with your experienced guide. As you walk through the bush your guide can tell you more about the Okavango Delta and its inhabitants, sharing minute details about the local flora and fauna. Exploring the untamed delta on foot is also an exhilarating experience, because you may encounter big game at any moment. Picnic lunches can be arranged on request, allowing you to spend a full day out and about.

About Oddballs’ Enclave

This intimate safari camp consists of only five walk-in tents providing accommodation for up to 10 guests. The tents are permanent canvas structures set on raised wooden platforms with small deck areas. Oddballs’ Enclave has twin share and double-bedded tents, all with semi-detached bathrooms. These private bathrooms are fitted with al fresco bucket showers that have hot and cold running water.

Tucked away in the middle of the pristine delta habitat, this classical camp is the ideal place to soak up the beauty of nature. The absence of motorised activities ensures that guests are able to unwind in peace and quiet. Lovely raised viewing and lounge areas offer comfortable places for enjoying the views and looking out for birds and animals in the surrounding bush.

  • Spend three nights at Oddballs’ Enclave

Day 4 to 6: Camp Savuti - Chobe National Park

After breakfast at Oddballs’ Enclave, we fly out of the watery delta, looking down over the scenic plains and waterways where wildlife roams freely. Our small plane carries us to the Savuti airstrip in Chobe National Park, northeast of the Okavango Delta.

Then we drive to Camp Savuti, about 20 minutes away, game viewing en route. The Savuti area of Botswana offers superb game viewing, being renowned for its outstanding predator sightings. The Savuti Marsh hosts one of Africa's highest concentrations of wild animals, as well as a rich array of birds.

During our stay in Chobe National Park we embark on morning and afternoon game drives along the Savuti Channel in the diverse Savuti Marsh area. In 2010 the Savuti Channel began to flow after almost two decades of standing dry, bringing this wild area to life again. Exploring the open grasslands in open 4x4 vehicles, we look out for the abundance of herbivores that gather in the Savuti Marsh to graze on the sweet grasses, along with the numerous predators found here.

About Camp Savuti

A small private camp, Camp Savuti provides a personal safari experience in Chobe Park. This intimate camp is set along the Savuti Channel, offering stunning views over the marshes and channel.

A maximum of 10 guests are accommodated in five walk-in, canvas tents set apart along the channel to create privacy. These spacious en-suite tents are raised on decks overlooking the Savuti Channel, where birds and animals can be seen. The tented accommodation is stylish and comfortable, yet simple and natural. Camp Savuti has a cosy lounge, bar and dining area for relaxing and taking in the views.

  • Spend three nights at Camp Savuti

Day 7: Savuti to Maun - Botswana

Rise and shine for an early morning adventure in Chobe Park, before breakfast at Camp Savuti. Then it is time to fly back to Maun in a small plane.

In Maun, our memorable Botswana Lodge Safari adventure comes to a close.
