Ten Night Botswana Summer Encounter

Explore a world renewed by the life giving summer rains, through the plains of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, the magnificent Okavango Delta with its vibrant birds and myriad animals followed by a cruise down the picturesque Chobe River, and finally of the incomparable Victoria Falls
With the coming of the summer rains northern Botswana is transformed, setting in motion many of the processes and dependencies which connect the vast wilderness. Operated by the renowned Wilderness Safaris this safari allows you, accompanied throughout by a specialist guide, to get to appreciate this vast region.

The safari begins in the Kalahari Desert, brought to life by the summer rains providing rich grazing to both local and migratory species of plains game. This is the most abundant season in the Kalahari. The safari then explores the Okavango Delta, first the floodplains of the Santawani Concession and then the water wonderland of Xigera Camp, surrounded by water in the Moremi Game Reserve. The safari then moves north with a boat cruise on the Chobe River, before leaving Botswana for Livingstone and the mighty Victoria Falls.

An atmospheric combination of Wilderness Safaris’ Classic Camps and traditional serviced camping provides comfortable accommodation throughout. This safari is supported throughout by a dedicated specialist guide who will bring this environment alive, sharing his knowledge of the wildlife, culture and history.

Day by Day Itinerary
On arrival at Maun International Airport you will be met by your dedicated Wilderness Explorations Guide who will assist you onto your light aircraft to the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in the centre of Botswana. Here you will spend three nights at the Kalahari Plains Camp, allowing time to unwind and to explore this game rich concession at its most abundant time of year.

Kalahari Plains Camp, with its eight canvas units, is ideally situated in a concession within the game reserve. Overlooking a large pan this eco-friendly camp has expansive views over the grassy plains of the Kalahari. Well adapted to the climate of the Kalahari the camp has rooftop sleeping decks and a plunge pool with airy guest areas.

In summer you can expect to see large herds of springbok and oryx which congregate on the fertile grasslands. These are followed by the famous Kalahari black maned lions and some of the largest cheetah concentrations in Africa. Other predators include black-backed jackal, bat-eared fox and African wild cat. Brown hyaena are also occasionally seen. The area is also home to over 220 species of bird.
