Camp Moremi is situated on the beautiful Xakanaxa Lagoon on the eastern edge of the permanent Okavango Delta, within the Moremi Wildlife Reserve. Here, where the life-giving waters of the Okavango meet up with the vast Kalahari, ancient Mopane forests, open grassland, seasonal floodplains and riverine habitats have formed, creating one of the most magnificent and welcoming animal sanctuaries in all of Africa. Shaded by giant ebony trees, the magnificent Moremi tree lodge is an elegant elevated thatch and timber structure, consisting of a main lounge, wildlife reference library, dining room and cocktail bar. Other facilities include a secluded swimming pool with sun deck, thatched boma and elevated viewing hide with unsurpassed views of the Xakanaxa Lagoon.

DAY FIVE & SIX
After your morning safari activity followed by breakfast, you will be transferred by air to Savuti Safari Lodge, where you will spend the last 2 nights of your trip, full board basis, and including scheduled safari activities, and local brand drinks.
It is on the banks of Botswana’s fabled Stolen River, that you will find Savute Safari Lodge in a setting of singular beauty. The now dry Savute channel is part of the dynamic Savute eco system renowned for its large concentration of elephant and lion and theirtroubled relationship. Savute’s signature expansive glass sliding doors and viewing decks were inspired by the striking panorama, whether seen in the dry season when it can appear desert-like and barren beyond belief or after the rain on one of those crystal clear days across the vivid green of new grass, the impression is always the same. Savute Safari Lodge accommodates only 24 guests in local timber and glass chalets with cool thatching, beautifully furnished in fresh colors. All chalets have private decks, a combined bedroom / lounge area and en-suite facilities, which sets the lodge apart from typical safari accommodation. The lounge, library and cocktail bar are situated in the exquisite thatch and timber main building, while overlooking the channel, Savute boasts a viewing deck, al fresco dining area & swimming pool – ideal for watching game at the water hole. Activities center around game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles in the Savute area, including the Savute Marsh, and a visit to the ancient San rock paintings at Gubatsa Hills. Savute lays claim to the second biggest summer zebra migration in Africa, which is determined by the rains, but usually occurs between November – December and again between February – April when the zebras are in search of the rain-ripe grasslands.
