After breakfast we travel in our open sided 4x4 vehicles to the Khwai area of Moremi. This is a pure wilderness area of great beauty, with rich green vegetation, palm trees, teeming with birdlife and a vast population of wild animals.

DAY 5/ 6: SAVUTE
We exit Moremi and enter the Chobe National Park. Traversing the park we set up camp in the famous wildlife area of Savute. It constitutes the western stretch of the park. The Savute Marsh is the relic of a large inland lake whose water supply was cut a long time ago by tectonic movements. Nowadays the marsh is fed by the erratic Savute Channel, which dries up for long periods then curiously flows again, a consequence of tectonic activity in the area. We undertake afternoon and morning game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles in search of the animals inhabiting the area. The sounds of the nocturnal animals can be heard while enjoying dinner around the campfire in our private campsite where we set up bush toilets and bush showers. (Serviced Camping - B, L, D)
