Richard, our Botswana specialist says:
This is my favourite of the Botswana itineraries. Whether its your first time of you have been on many safaris before this itinerary is perfect for couples, family group of friends. A private mobile safari enables you to get away from the crowds and have a truly luxury experience which is completely tailor made. Although we can combine different destinations for all different numbers of nights this itinerary works particularly well in March – May time when the Central Kalahari Game reserve a hidden gem in Botswana. Its also a great time to make the most of travel during a quieter shoulder season. The itinerary combines 5 nights exploring the valleys and pans of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, 1 night in Meno A Kwena on the Boteti river followed by 5 nights in the game rich Moremi. This offers exceptional value for money and allows your to get into some of the most remote areas in Botswana. With the possibility of staying out all day and no particular time table often results in spectacular game sightings.

Day 2 to 6 :
Just after the rains the Central Kalahari come to life as the tall grasses flourish in the pans and valleys resulting in much of the plains game congregating in these areas. With the plains game comes the predators with sighting of Kalahari black maned lions, cheetah frequent and a good possibility of seeing the illusive brown hyena. Amongst these you will see large number of oryx and springbok with many of the rare small carnivores such as bat eared fox, honey badger and aardwolf.
Day 6 & 7 - Travel to Meno A Kwena:
After an early breakfast you will make you way to the eastern edge of the Central Kalahari game Reserve spotting wildlife on the way before heading north up to Meno A Kwena. This is a lovely over night spot to break up the drive between the Central Kalahari and Moremi. Famous for being the location for Harry and Megans honeymoon you will have enough time to relax and head out on an evening activity before you head into the Moremi the following morning. During this time your mobile safari camp will go ahead and set up your next camp ready for your arrival.
