5-day Mababe (Maun-Khwai-savuti-mababe)
Note: this is an example safari just to show some of the possibilities. All of our mobile safaris are tailor made and are subject to availability and season.
Day 1 - Gweta Lodge
Arrive at Gweta Lodge to meet the friendly local staff and enjoy your welcome drink by the pool. Sit down to a delicious homemade 3-course meal.
Day 2 - Khwai
This is a full day trip to the Scenic Khwai area where we will drive along the river systems – a great opportunity for seeing Giraffe, Elephant and a selection of Antelope. Stop off for a picnic lunch at a lagoon with a beautiful Leadwood forest and take the opportunity to rest and relax in one of the most stunning areas in Botswana. Carry on your game drive back towards camp giving you a further opportunity to witness some of the big 5 as well as other rare sightings of Africa and an abundance of bird life.
Day 3 - Savuti
Leisurely drive up to Savuti which is part of the Chobe National Park, the first ever national park in Botswana where the wildlife sightings are particularly dynamic. The area covers almost 4 200mi2 (10 878km2) of northern Botswana. The Magwikhwe sand ridge and the desolate Savuti marsh at the end of the Savuti channel are all that remains of the once great lake that covered much of northern Botswana. The Savuti region is an exceptional area for bird watching. Among the diverse species are the Admin Stalk, Kori Bustards, Large Secretary Birds and many others.
Day 4 - Mababe
Morning game drive into the Mababe area giving another opportunity to see a variety of game and a change in Terrain. The Khwai river also runs through Mababe attracting a lot of different types of game. Carry on your day with a cold lunch at camp and then enjoy the afternoon game drive with sunset drinks overlooking the Mababe depression.
Day 5 - Maun
Wake up for your last African bush breakfast and start your return to Maun with your guides discussing everything you have seen and experienced on the way back, with a chance to ask any further questions you may have.
