SAMPLE ITINERARY ONE

Day 1: Chobe National Park Transfer from Kasane Airport to andBeyond Chobe Under Canvas for 2 days. This fully serviced wilderness camp offers spacious East African style safari tent with comfortable beds, teak furniture, quaint bedside lamps and en suite bathroom.

Day 2: Chobe National Park Morning and afternoon game drives in open 4x4 vehicles with guaranteed window seats and uninterrupted views offer the best opportunity to spot the Big Five. A boat cruise on the Zambezi River reveals a myriad of wildlife drawn to the water to drink.

Day 3: Chobe National Park > Savute Light aircraft flight to Savute. Spend two nights at Savute Under Canvas. Savute, a remote and wild corner of the Chobe National Park, is situated south of the Chobe River. The area's main feature is the mysterious Savute Channel, which flows and dries up in a manner seemingly unrelated to the rainfall. Dry and arid for almost 30 years, animals in the area were sustained by artificial waterholes. With the Savute Channel having started flowing again in recent years, the region has undergone a startling transformation, reverting to its natural lush and marshy state. Large numbers of wildlife have been attracted to this rejuvenated wilderness haven.

Day 4: Savute Channel At Savute Under Canvas your days are designed to thrill you with intimate wildlife experiences, and your nights to delight you with the romance of canvas under open African skies.

Day 5: Savute > Okavango Delta Fly by light aircraft into the Okavango Delta, a maze of lagoons and waterways in the heart of the desert. Choose three nights at one of three luxury lodges or tented camp to enjoy a full experience in this wildlife-rich hot-spot of Africa: andBeyond Xaranna, andBeyond Nxabega Okavango Delta Camp or, for a supplement, andBeyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge.

Days 6-7: Okavango Delta Activities during these wonderful days include game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, mokoro (dug-out canoe) trips on the waterways, bush walks, bird watching, bush breakfasts and sundowners.

Game drives out of this world!

Can't thank you enough for recommending &Beyond - we have had the most memorable week of our lives in Botswana. Sent you an email as we ate lunch at Xudum watching lions eat their kill but the email did not send so trying again now minus the lions. The 3 camps we went to were so fantastic, the guides and staff awesome, the food wonderful, the game drives out of this world. Chobe was packed full of animals, the other two not so much but beautiful in other ways. It was hot, hot, hot but thank goodness for the plunge pool at Xudum. Thanks so much again
