Join me & Noa for an unforgettable 7 days Photographic Safari Experience to the Khwai and Savuti.
Date: 14 October – 20 October
Khwai Concession • This mopane dominated 1800 sq km wildlife concession is located
on the eastern edge of the Okavango Delta, on the edge of the Moremi Game Reserve. The Acacia and Leadwood lined Khwai River itself is the sole source of water for miles around, and is frequented by a spectacular array of game. Khwai is made up of sweeping grasslands, riparian forests and oodplains that are ooded most of the year. This is the raptor capital of Botswana: sh eagles, bateleur, tawny, martial and brown snake eagles line the river bank alongside lanner falcons. Resident packs of Wilddog offer some of the best opportunities with this species. Lion, leopard, cheetah, and hyena are commonly sighted at Khwai.
Savuti, Chobe National Park • Located in the south-west of the Chobe National Park, comprising a lush, expansive marsh, riverine habitat and mopane woodland. Its characteristic granite hills provide a visual relief with a three-dimensional perspective for those accustomed to the at topography of the rest of Botswana!
With food scarce during the past Savute Channel drought, the lions became specialized hunters of elephants and continue today, despite the abundance of alternative food sources.
The annual zebra migration is followed by high numbers of predators, mainly lion, which can make for action packed sightings in Savute. Good sightings of cheetah and leopard are also probable, along with that of the endangered wild dog.
