Full Itinerary

DAY 1 – 3: Pom Pom Camp
After a meet & greet at Maun airport, you will board a scenic light aircraft transfer to Pom Pom Camp (approx. 25 minutes). Your safari guide will meet you at the airstrip and short 10 minute drive to Pom Pom Camp. On arrival at the camp you will have a safety briefing with a welcome drink by the camp manager. Time to unpack and settle into your family tent. Before /during /after afternoon tea your guide will cover your safari itinerary and activities and present the children with their young explorer kit. Naturally there is opportunity to change activities on a daily basis depending on your preference. Activities on offer are morning, afternoon and night game drives, motorboat cruises (all year round) or family fishing expeditions (Mar – Dec) and a mini-tracking expedition in a secured area.
 
For safety reasons only children aged 12 and over can go on mokoros and game walks which tend to be up to 2 hours. So that parents and children can get the most out of their safari and wilderness experience, during these activities, guiding is done in a fun participatory and easy to understand way introducing the children to animal identification, tracking and birding & animal calls. For the mini-tracking ‘expedition’ the guide will drive the family to an open and secure area to look for tracks and birds and compare them to their explorer booklets. The content of the explorer kit will vary depending on availability of the items but will include some of the following items: sling bag, lunch box & water bottle, activity book, explorer check-list, note pad and colouring pencils. Back in the camp the children can use their newly-found knowledge when completing their activity books and bush quiz with their guide and/or parents. For younger children, parents can request an early dinner option before they depart on their afternoon activity. The guide will probably suggest a game drive as the evening activity, which will be done in a private vehicle in Pom Pom’s private concession returning in time for a tasty 3-course dinner (choice of 2 main courses) which is usually served around 19.30/20.00 hrs. After dinner the guide walks family to their tent. NB on safety: All guests get walked to and from their tents from sunset onwards as the camp is unfenced and no guests are permitted to walk alone in the camp at night.
 
Day 2 early morning wake-up call on day 2. Light breakfast followed by a morning game drive. After brunch you have time to relax and enjoy a refreshing swim in the pool or some armchair game viewing from your tent deck using your activity books and check-lists. Enjoy afternoon tea before you set off on a motorboat cruise or fishing expedition (available Mar – Dec) for the whole family with sundowners & snacks. You will return to camp at sunset.
 
Day 3 morning & afternoon game drive. Alternatively parents have the option of going on a morning mokoro and game walk whilst children have a game drive and mini-tracking expedition with the private safari guide.
 

DAY 4 – 6: Chobe Bush Lodge
Time to leave Pom Pom Camp for your 3 night Chobe experience: early morning wake-up call. Light breakfast. Morning game drive. Time to finish packing the bags. After Brunch don’t forget to look under the kids’ bed for left belongings and collect cameras from charging station. Road transfer to airstrip for onward air charter to Chobe (approx.1hr20mins).
 
Meet & Greet at Kasane Airport by lodge representative and complimentary road transfer to the lodge. Welcome to Kasane, Chobe, the confluence of two mighty rivers – Chobe River and the Zambezi. Did you know this is also where four African countries meet? Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia. Check-in with welcome drink. During your stay you can enjoy 3 game drives (shared), 1 Chobe Sunset boat cruise (shared) and 1 private boat cruise or fishing (2 hours).
 
Chobe’s wildlife can be experienced from two very different perspectives – on a game drive or a Chobe River cruise.
 
Suggested afternoon activity: Chobe River Cruise during which you can see some of Chobe’s legendary elephant population. A wildlife paradise, Chobe National Park is also world famous for its large lion population and herds of buffalo. The highlight being the combination of diverse and abundant wildlife, birds and reptiles along the banks of the Chobe River and the ease with which guests can get close to them is perfect for photography and game viewing. The banks of the Chobe River is home to some of the densest wildlife populations in Africa, abounding with rich colourful birdlife and the likes of not only elephants but also lions, leopards, buffalos, giraffes, zebras, banded mongoose, hippos, waterbucks, puku, roans, elands, warthogs and crocodiles which can be uniquely viewed during the Chobe River cruises as these provide exceptional close-up vantage points for photography.
 
Day 5 you will explore Chobe National Park, this time from a game drive perspective during your morning and afternoon game drives which are done on a shared vehicle basis. Private vehicle on request as an optional add-on.
 
Day 6 you can choose from fishing or a private boat cruise on the Chobe River. Brunch. Afternoon game drive.
