Day 3
Morning and afternoon game viewing activities around Chobe. You will want to go into the national park on game drives and take a river cruise to watch elephants, buffalo and antelope come to the water.

Another day of Chobe game viewing activities. Fishing is always a highlight and your lodge has a refreshing swimming pool to relax between activities.
Day 5

Safaris to Botswana have traditionally been an exclusive domain aimed squarely at adults. But there are now outstanding options for family safaris, including the Chobe area, with its guaranteed big game sightings by the river and wide range of activities and entertainments. From here it’s on to Ker & Downey’s Footsteps Across the Delta camp, with a Young Explorers programme targeted specifically at families in one of the prime Okavango game viewing concessions. The itinerary ends at a family friendly camp in the game rich Moremi Reserve.

3 nights Chobe – 3 nights Okavango Delta – 3 nights Moremi Wildlife Reserve
