Okavango

May 15 and 16
Imagine flying low level from the dry Makgadikgadi pan to the lush and green Okavango delta. What a contrast!

For us used to the green hills of Africa the lush is not a surprise, but the water everywhere certainly is. We flew over elephant, zebra, oryx, buffalo, hippo… in less than an hour we were at Chobe. Savuti camp is nicely nestled on the Savuti channel, among the trees: lovely.


The afternoon drive delivered a thrilling encounter with three lion brothers. Very up close, for some guests even a little bit too close!
The next morning a great game drive in between the Savuti and the Selinda provided a bunch of new species for most of our guests: Letchwe, Kudu, Roan, Tsessebe, Honey Badger. We saw many elephants and even more hippos, in the unusual setting of the Okavango. The afternoon was spent scouting the channel by boat. We love surprises… a bush dinner under an amazing starry sky ended a perfect day. Photos speaks for themselves…
