10-Day Call of the Wild Safari to Botswana
– Enjoy an exclusive experience within the Khwai Concession (bordering the Okavango Delta) and the Moremi Reserve.
– This safari is paced for those who really want to concentrate on photography and game viewing from a vehicle.
Limited walking is offered plus one full day in the Okavango Delta game viewing by boat.
This safari to Botswana began with the non stop Delta Air Lines flight from Atlanta to Johannesburg. I spent the evening at the Southern Sun O. R. Tambo hotel – comfortable accommodation and a very tasty breakfast. The next morning I met with two of our clients and that I had booked on the safari and we made our way by hotel shuttle to the airport. The shuttle was quick and efficient.
About an hour into the game drive I realized that my pants were missing – I had placed them on the floor of the vehicle and they had bounced out. I said ‘ Nic, I think I have lost my pants’ We back tracked to no avail and Nic radioed Dave Carson, who found my pants about 50 feet from the elephants we were watching.
We continued game driving to camp and arrived just after sunset – by our choice.
We moved to Kwai after 3 nights by a LONG road transfer starting with the boat ride on the Delta. The Kwai region is flooded in areas and resembles a land water camp.
Nic’s keen eye spotted water glistening on elephant skin. We were off – power walking through low trees to find the elephants. Can you hide a two ton beast behind a 5 foot tall Mopane? – Yes you can! Nic got us very close. We sat and watch the elephants play in t he mud and splash each other cooling in the heat of the day.
