Days 1 - 2: Xugana Island. Okavango Delta

On arrival in the heart of the Okavango Delta from Maun International Airport, you will be welcomed by your guide and driven to the Xugana Island Lodge where you will reside for two nights. Xugana Island Lodge is situated on a private concession and has a splendid site location. The al fresco and outdoor boma areas overlooks the Delta, which allows for fantastic opportunity to spot wildlife that are attracted to the water. The camp is situated on the edge of a delta and acts as the prime location for water activities such as Moroko excursions. This intimate form of canoeing allows you to get lost in a maze of wonder with your loved one.

As a wetland oasis is in the heart of the Kalahari Desert, both worlds are significantly explored. Follow in the fresh footsteps of wildlife as you venture into game drives or walking safaris or become one with the wild as you are escorted on an unforgettable elephant back safari. In absolute contrast, the Xugana Lagoon is accepted as the most dramatic permanent water site in the Okavango Delta.

Spend some time alongside a knowledgeable guide as you attempt to track the larger species that inhabit this water wilderness. Add a touch of romance to your evening by dining at a private table placed under an Ebony and African Mangosteen tree canopy, before you return to your secluded hideout.

Days 3 - 4: Savute Channel

On your transfer from the Okavanga Delta to the Savute region, an aerial map of the winding channels and islands of the Delta will be engraved outside your window. At your arrival on the bush airstrip, a lodge representative will meet you and escort you on a short game drive to the lodge. Welcomed by a luxurious suite with a private deck delivering you to breathtaking views, Savute Safari Lodge will be your home for the next two nights.

Due to its remote location, the lodge does not have any private communication facilities so you can enjoy a peaceful stay. Enjoy the best that a Botswana safari holiday has to offer - culture, delicious dishes, magnificent wildlife and so much more! Savute boasts a large concentration of African elephant and also large lion prides.

Don't forget your camera for your boastful wildlife photos. Highlights of your stay include game drives in an open 4x4 safari vehicle around the Savute area, including the Savute Marsh and a cultural visit to the ancient San Rock paintings in Gubatsa Hills.

Days 5 - 6: Makgadikgadi Pans

Cross the Kalahari in a light aircraft flight from Savute to Leroo La Tau. Watch as the bushveld turns into a landscape of vast white salt pans as you enter the Makgadikgadi region. A lodge representative will welcome you at the airstrip and your journey will continue to your next stop - Leroo La Tau.

Your accommodation at Leroo La Tau bush lodge is a luxury en-suite chalet on a raised wooden platform. Your glass-fronted suite will ensure that you experience a truly African bush adventure without missing your creature comforts. This magical lodge in the Makgadikgadi National Park will give you the chance for matchless game viewing on day and night drives.
