Safari summaryA typical day on safari The day starts with the rising of the sun. Your wake-up call will be between 5am and 6am – a gentle “koko” (knock knock in Setswana) at the entrance of your tent. One of the team will be on hand to fill your wash-hand basin with steaming hot water and freshly made tea and coffee will be served around the campfire. A light breakfast will be served before the early morning game drive which consists of tea, plunger coffee, juice, rusks, fruit, cereal, toast and jams. The best time of day to enjoy game viewing is in the early morning and late afternoon as most animals retreat to the shade to rest during the heat of the day. Having spent the morning exploring the surrounding wilderness in search of Botswana’s hidden treasures, you will return to camp for lunch under the shade of a Marula tree. Lunch consists of salads, freshly baked bread on the open campfire, cold meats and pickles. Just as the animals retreat to escape the heat of mid-day, so will you. This is your time to enjoy reading, chatting, relaxing or taking a nap. Later in the afternoon you will head out into the wilderness once more as the animals awake from their days’ slumber and gather at the watering holes. Following a stop for sun downers and to enjoy yet another incredible African sunset we return to camp to enjoy a hot shower under the starry night sky before gathering around the warmth of the campfire to relive the day’s highlights. A three-course dinner is served with South African wines against the magical backdrop of the African night sky. Retreating to the comfort of your tent after enjoying a nightcap around the campfire, you can fall asleep to the calls of the African wild.

You will spend the next three nights at a campsite in the community area, exploring the Khwai floodplains on game drives both during the day and at night.
