Fly-in safari 9 days / 8 nights
Start anticipating your African adventure with a short summary of what you can expect each day on safari to bring.
This safari begins at Victoria Falls Airport in Zimbabwe and ends at Maun Airport in Botswana.
DAY 1 & 2: CHOBE NATIONAL PARK - KASANE
On arrival at Victoria Falls Airport you will be welcomed by a member of the &Beyond team. From there, travel to your secluded campsite at near the Chobe River at &Beyond Chobe Under Canvas, crossing the border en route.
A wildlife enthusiast's dream, Chobe National Park is known as one of the top wilderness reserves in the world and home to the largest single concentration of elephant. Throughout the year, herds of buffalo and elephant can be seen drinking at the water's edge, with their numbers swelling into the hundreds and thousands during the dry season. Two region-specific antelope, the puku and the Chobe bushbuck, cannot be seen anywhere in Botswana except the Chobe waterfront.
Spend two nights under African skies in a tent with en suite bathroom, separate w.c. and al fresco bucket shower with hot water delivered on request.
Day 3 - 4: Savute
You will be driven across the border to Kasane, from where a light aircraft will take you to Savute.
Savute boasts some of the highest concentrations of wildlife in southern Africa. Situated in the famous Chobe National Park, it is known for its high numbers of lion. The arid landscape of Savute, with its desert-like feeling and man-made waterholes, is strikingly beautiful.
Sleep under African skies for two nights in a spacious tent with ensuite bathroom at &Beyond Savute Under Canvas. Twice-daily game drives in semi-open 4x4 safari vehicles with guaranteed window seats explore the surrounding landscape.
Day 5 & 6: Chobe National Park: Linyanti
Fly from Savute Airstrip to Saile Airstrip.
Linyanti is a hidden gem, tucked away in the northeastern corner of the Chobe National Park. Due to its remoteness, the Linyanti is an unspoiled region of waterways and lagoons, riverine forests, huge trees and palm tree islands.Linked to the Okavango Delta by the Selinda Spillway, it is renowned as one of the best game viewing areas in the region, supporting a great diversity of wildlife, with large herds of elephant, buffalo and zebra.
Enjoy the spectacular views from your tent at the exceptional Linyanti Bush Camp, on the banks of the Linyanti Marshes, for the next two nights. Your stay includes all meals, all beverages (except premium imported spirits and champagne) and a selection of wildlife adventures, including game drives, guided walking safaris and evening excursions.
Day 7 & 8: Moremi Game Reserve
Yet another flight will take you to Khwai Airstrip.

A semi-permanent Hemingway-style tent at Khwai Tented Camp will be your home for the next two nights.
