Overnight: Moremi campsite
Meal basis: Dinner, fruit juice

Day 2 - 3Explore Moremi Game Reserve

Start the day with an early morning wake-up call. Tea and coffee are waiting for you before embarking on a game drive to capture the beauty of the morning light and the start of a new day in this untouched wilderness. Moremi is the first game reserve in Africa that was established by local residents. Concerned about the rapid depletion of wildlife in their ancestral lands due to uncontrolled hunting and cattle encroachment – the Batawana people took the bold initiative to proclaim Moremi a game reserve in 1963.
The Moremi Game Reserve covers much of the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and combines permanent water with drier areas, which creates some startling and unexpected contrasts. Some prominent geographical features of the Reserve are Chiefs Island and the Moremi Tongue.
The Reserve covers 5,000 square kilometres (1,900 sq mi) in extent, it is a surprisingly diverse Reserve, combining mopane woodland and acacia forests, floodplains and lagoons. Only about 30% of the Reserve is mainland, with the bulk being within the Okavango Delta itself.
Moremi is the home to nearly 500 species of bird (from water birds to forest dwellers), and a vast array of other species of wildlife, including buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyaena, jackal, impala, red lechwe and African Wild dog.
For the following 3 days, you will experience this iconic game reserve in an open-sided safari vehicle, allowing you to absorb and experience sightings with all of your senses when up and close to wildlife. Your experienced game ranger will teach you about many aspects of nature and interpret wildlife behaviour for you in a unique way. He will also be receiving updates from other rangers in the area regarding animal movements.
In addition to 4 x 4 game drives, you will experience wildlife on foot during guided bush walks. Glide along the winding channels of the Okavango Delta in a traditional mokoro canoe, spotting wildlife and birds as you move through the pristine bush.

Overnight: Moremi campsite
Meal basis: All meals are dinner, teas, coffee, fruit juice and water on safari

Day 4Moremi Game Reserve - Khwai Conservancy

This morning, after a delicious breakfast, we will start the drive towards the beautiful Khwai. But on our way, we will stop at the Mboma Boat station for a few hours gently gliding through the channels of the Okavango Delta. The views into the crystal-clear waters will leave you mesmerized. Once we leave the boat station, we will embark on an extended game drive towards the Khwai area. When we arrive at camp in the late afternoon, your team will have already set up and you will be able to enjoy a relaxing evening on the banks of the Khwai river.
Walk around the camp under the watchful eyes of your camp staff.
Later settle in with a drink around the campfire and see which animal noises you recognize as darkness falls.
In the evening, enjoy dinner around a cracking bush fire and later fall asleep to the distant roar sound of the Delta lions.

Overnight: Khwai River campsite
Meal basis: All meals are dinner, teas, coffee, fruit juice and water on safari

Day 5 - 6 Explore Khwai Conservancy

Khwai is a community-run concession on the eastern border of the Moremi Game reserve.
This is an unfenced boundary allowing wildlife to move freely therefore the game is free to roam in and out as it wishes. Khwai is an area of outstanding beauty and due to the arid conditions to the north towards Savuti, the game will flock to the Khwai River, especially in the drier winter months.
The Khwai River is an extension of the Okavango Delta, maintaining its wild essence and biodiversity. Situated on the northern border of Moremi National Park, the area is abundant in abundance. Amongst the myriad of ecosystems within the delta, the Khwai River is one of the most dramatic. As the season changes and the African heat rises, depleting water and food sources, the Khwai becomes a lifeline for wildlife. The water from the delta has pushed as far up the Khwai channel as it will go for the season, with animals congregating along the riverbanks to quench their thirst.
In fact, the Khwai River is a hub for excellent wildlife viewing and is home to healthy populations of elephant, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, eland, sable, hippo, and more. This area of the Okavango Delta is a go-to location for all your favourite predators, particularly wild dogs.
We will spend the following 3 days exploring the wilderness, especially the areas along the Khwai River and beyond, characteristic of the Okavango with its teems of wildlife.

With our Game viewer vehicle, we will meander through the Khwai River region during morning and afternoon game drives to spot Africa’s big game, elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and black rhino. Early morning game viewings are usually very rewarding as we get a chance to see the big Cats in action as they hunt in the morning taking advantage of the cool temperatures. With such bountiful numbers of prey, the predator population thrives, following in the footsteps of their next meal.
Birdlife is also strong and concentrates on the main river area where lovely flocks of pygmy geese and white-faced ducks mingle with spur-winged geese, comb ducks and African Jacanas.
Regarding plant life, Khwai Community Concession has a range of flora from mopane forest to acacia, especially rather fine camel thorn and bands of riverine forest in the vicinity of the Khwai River which includes sausage tree, leadwood, sycamore fig, fever-berry and jackalberry. The waterways sport beautiful lilies on the slower-flowing lagoons.

Overnight: Khwai River campsite
Meal basis: All meals are dinner, teas, coffee, fruit juice and water on safari

Day 7Khwai Conservancy – Maun - Departure

Today your Botswana Mobile Camping Expeditions journey comes to an end.
After our last early morning game drive followed by a leisurely late breakfast, we will start the drive back towards Maun. The road to Maun will take us through the traditional Khwai village which is an amazing example of people living in harmony with nature and enjoying the benefits of ecotourism.
If community interaction is your forte, take a walk around the rural village and meet the locals, gaining insight into their unique way of life. Explore the African traditions and age-old customs that have survived in this remote community of Botswana.
Lunch will be provided along the way. Arriving in Maun in the afternoon, you will drop off at Maun International Airport for your onward flight back home Or at a hotel/lodge in the town (cost of post-safari accommodation not included)
