Botswana’s magnificent Okavango Delta is a maze of lagoons, lakes, islands and hidden channels which attract wildlife that depend on the permanent waters of this unique wilderness. The elevated walkways, which lead up and in between the overhanging branches of the rich plant life in this island paradise, are a unique welcome to your first steps, as you approach this incredible camp from the airstrip where you have just landed.
 
Camp Okavango has a Family Suite consisting of 2 bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms. This expansive room, which connects through inter-leading doors, is your home for the following two nights as you marvel in the pristine beauty and excitement of experiencing the Okavango Delta at its best.

DAY 3 – 4: Savuti Safari Lodge
Savute Safari Lodge is situated on the banks of Botswana’s fabled “Stolen River”, the Savute Channel. Stretching from the waterways of the Linyanti all the way to the Savute Marsh, the winding waterways of the Savute Channel have pumped life into the western section of the Chobe National Park for many thousands of generations. However, there is mystery to this channel, this fickle and unpredictable channel has a fascinating history of flooding and drying up independently of good rainy seasons and flood levels elsewhere – a mystery that has intrigued geologists and researchers for many years.
 
Savute Safari Lodge family suite consists of two bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms. Families consisting of 3 children, can be accommodated in the family room with the addition of an extra bed in the suite.
The main lodge area offers a lounge, dining room, secluded library, bar, plunge pool and most meals are served on an elevated deck which looks out over the Savute channel and the waterholes which are a magnet to animals which come to quench their dry Savute thirst. The area is renowned for its population of bull elephant and for the unique interaction of the resident predator species.
 
Your time at Savute Safari Lodge is spent on private game drive activities with your guide. Savute Safari Lodge offers the following activities:
• Activities are centred around game drives throughout the Savute area in open 4×4 safari vehicles
• Families can also enjoy a visit to the ancient San rock paintings at Gubatsa Hills, a small hilly outcrop which forms a remarkable landmark in the otherwise flat landscape. (visits to these painting at times when predators are known to be denning near these hills will restrict this activity)
 
A dedicated staff member, your “Safari Hero”, will plan your stay, activities, meals times, in camp activities, story times and ensure that both you and your children have an incredible stay with us at Savute Safari Lodge.
