You will begin your adventure in the Makgadikgadi Pans, a vast salt pan that is home to diverse wildlife and ancient cultures.

There are activities the whole family can enjoy, from thrilling quad biking excursions sure to appeal to young teens, whilst a visit to the historic Chapman’s baobab tree provides an educational opportunity. 

 After four action-packed days, you will then move on to Chobe Game Lodge, a luxurious and intimate lodge with stunning views over the Chobe floodplains. You will explore the area by game drives, boat cruises, night drives and walking safaris, and witness the large herds of elephants, buffaloes and other animals that congregate here. 

The main lodge has an elevated river boardwalk, the perfect place for sundowners, and every room river views and private terraces. 

Meerkats and Megafauna – Pricing and considerations

The Makgadikgadi Pans and Chobe National Park can be explored all year round as they offer a range of activities as the seasons change. However, the dry season from May to October is the best time for wildlife viewing, and the low water levels allow for quad biking and sleep outs on the Pans. 

Our guide price for this itinerary is from £5,448 / $6,260 per person (based on 2 adults and 2 children (under 12) sharing a family room.
