Notes for this safari
The above package rates are applicable to this 8 night/9 day Honeymoon Safari as advertised (including all transfers and charter flights). If there are any changes to the itinerary i.e. added nights etc the special extras and upgrades will not apply.
At the lodges the vehicles either open Toyota Land Cruisers carrying a maximum of 7 people or Land Rovers carrying a maximum of 9 people. All Land Cruisers have individual buckets seats while the Land Rover have bench seats. All vehicles have a removable canvas roof which is important for the hot African days. Smoking is not permitted in any of our safari vehicles, but is allowed in sections of the lodges.
Chobe Game Lodge offers game drives conducted in open four-wheel drive vehicles, normally early morning and late afternoon. There are also excursions in motorboats and sunset cruises on the Chobe River. Professional guides or an environmentalist offer star gazing on the stargazing deck
Savute Safari Lodge offers daily game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles in the Savute area of the Chobe National Park, including the Savute Marsh. A visit to Gubatsa Hills and ancient San rock paintings is also available.
Xugana Island Lodge offers Mokoro trips in eco-friendly dugout canoes built to the traditional design, boat safaris to lagoons and islands and wilderness walks. Bream and Tiger Fishing can be excellent at certain times of the year. Birdwatching is excellent throughout the year. Leroo La Tau offers day and night game drives in open 4 x 4 safari vehicles.
Visa, MasterCard and Diners Club credit cards are accepted in the camps. American Express cards are however not accepted.
Guest safety is of paramount importance at the Desert and Delta Safaris’ lodges. Fully trained guides monitor animal activity within the Lodge areas, and always escort guests to/from their suites (especially between dusk and dawn).
While on game activities it is essential to listen to the guides who will not only advise you of the wonders of the bush, but of the dangers too.
For inter-camp air transfers, space and safety concerns do not allow for excess baggage, so the following should be taken into account:
There is a very strict weight restriction on all light aircraft. The limit is 20kgs (44 lbs) per person that MUST be packed into small soft bags (duffel bags). The soft duffel bags make it easy for the luggage to be stowed on the aircraft. Camera and video equipment are included in the 20 kg limit. For safety reasons any excess luggage will be left behind with our representative and forwarded to your point of departure at your expense if necessary, or returned to you if you depart through the same point. You can minimize your clothing needs by finding multiple uses for each item. Keep in mind that there are laundry services at all of the camps and lodges where you will stay.
Immunisation requirements vary from country to country and up-to-date information should be obtained from your local health department. It is the guest’s sole responsibility to ensure that they have had all necessary inoculations, immunisations and medications prior to departure.
Malaria: Prophylaxis with Lariam, Malarone, or doxycycline is recommended for travel in Botswana. All guests must consult with their own medical doctor or the Centre for Disease Control regarding the use of anti-malarial tablets prior to departure.
It is the guest’s obligation to ensure that he/she is medically fit to participate in travel i.e. for walking activities at Xugana Island, a reasonable level of fitness is required.
