Detailed Itinerary

2 Nights in Chobe Region | Botswana

Chobe Region

The Land of Gentle Giants

An African traveler will find the enormous wilderness of the Chobe Region to be enticing because there are so many lovely locations to stay, so much to see and do, and of course, so many elephants! Additionally, not just one, but four nations meet in this region of the continent: Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, and Namibia. The entrance to this diverse and fascinating region of Africa is the inconspicuous village of Kasane. Its neighbors include the Victoria Falls and Zambia’s Kazungula settlement, where ferries can be taken to cross over to the Chobe National Park, which is home to a herd of Kalahari elephants. Chobe

2 Nights in Savuti Marsh | Botswana

The Savuti Marsh, a vast expanse of wetland and savannah on the western corridor covering 10,878 square kilometers, offers residents of Chobe National Park a variety of wilderness areas. The Savuti Channel, a water source susceptible to extended dry spells, has subsequently filled the marsh, which was formerly sourced by an interior lake before geological changes cut off the water supply. Following a nearly three-decade dry spell, the channel has been flowing since 2010, transforming the area into a haven for both aquatic and terrestrial wildlife. The fresh fauna that is emerging gradually hides the dead trees that line the marsh’s banks.
