The Classic Okavango & Savuti Fly-in Safari combines the pristine waterways of the Okavango Delta with the once dry interior of the Savute. Staying in classic game lodges this safari package allows you to experience the best of a Botswana holiday at affordable prices.
The Okavango Delta can be experienced on game drives, dugout canoes, and nature walks and as the safari lodge is outside of the National Park there is more flexibility in the activities you can do.
From the Okavango Delta, the trip moves on to Savute in the Chobe National Park. Here you will explore the area on game drives. Your experienced guides will share their extensive knowledge of this region, the wildlife, and the changing landscape.
This morning you will fly-in from Johannesburg O.R. Tambo to Maun Airport. A short connecting flight from Maun in a light aircraft over the Okavango Delta brings you to your bush lodge where you will spend the next 2 nights. The game lodge is situated in the northern region of the Delta characterised by a mixture of seasonal floodplains and permanent water.
Today you will enjoy the full activities at the game lodge. Activities include game drives, night drives, dugout canoes and walks and knowledgeable guides will ensure that you get the best overall experience. Early morning and evening game drives provide the best opportunities for you to see the predators that inhabit the area.
A flight from the Delta takes you into another world of desert sand and scrub. Your bush camp for the next 2 nights is situated in the legendary Savute area overlooking a small waterhole. From here you can explore the area on game drives, looking for the predators that made Savute famous.
The Savute has undergone tremendous changes in the past 2 years, with the channel that had been dry for 25 years suddenly flowing again. This has changed the whole dynamic of the area and watching the wildlife adapt to these changes is a unique experience. Morning and afternoon game drives will ensure that you enjoy the best of what Savute offers.
There will be time for a morning activity before your flight to Maun and the connecting flight to Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
