After breakfast we pack up and continue to the Khwai Area, north of Moremi, where we spend the next 3 nights.
The Khwai River forms the eastern part of the Okavango Delta and is renowned for its prolific game, beautiful scenery and magnificent bird life. We have three full days exploring this area at our own pace.
Sandwiched between Moremi Game Reserve and on the fringes of Chobe National Park these two full days are filled with game rich viewing opportunities and provide one of the best places in Botswana to see wild dogs and other predators. With no fences separating any of these areas, you are likely to see just about everything that northern Botswana has to offer.
The Khwai River spreads out forming marshy areas and water channels that have good populations of hippos, crocodiles, waterbuck and lechwe. The dry woodlands away from the river host good populations of sable and roan antelopes, zebras, impalas, giraffes, buffaloes, and many other species.
As is the case with most of northern Botswana, elephants can be found everywhere, as well as lions, leopards and hyenas which are commonly seen. Wild dogs often den in the area during the winter months and can often be seen with their pups. This is a space jam-packed with excellent sighting opportunities and a wildlife photographers dream.
The three days we enjoy the game viewing at our own pace with plenty of time to kick back a little in this exquisite corner of Africa.
A Mokoro experience is included in the tour package.
