Our Falcon-Safari.com representative will meet you and assist you in checking in for your Air Botswana flight to Maun.
Upon arrival at Maun airport, you will be met by a representative of Delta Air in the Arrivals Hall. He will assist you with your luggage, and then show you to the light aircraft for your charter flight to Xakanaxa.

The Xakanaxa region of the Moremi Game Reserve consistently rewards visitors with fantastic wildlife sightings.

Another early morning game drive, brunch, and then you will be transferred by light aircraft (55 minutes) to Kasane. From Kasane, it will be a 40-minute drive into the Chobe National park to the Chobe River Front Mobile camp.
The Chobe National Park lies on Botswana’s far northern border, where the Kwando, Linyanti, and Chobe river systems form a series of lakes, Falcons, and floodplains. This area is famous for its large buffalo and elephant herds, as well as a variety of predators and birdlife.
The Chobe Riverfront is home to an amazing variety of wildlife. What is remarkable is the sheer number of animals that drink from the Chobe River during the dry months, creating the largest concentration of elephants and buffalo on the planet. The other highlight is a boat cruise on the Chobe River and watching, from the comfort of the boat, a host of wildlife come down to drink a mere few meters away
THE FOCUS is on big game, and the congregations of large herds, especially of buffalo and elephant, in the dry months.
ACTIVITIES: Game drives in the Chobe National Park and boat cruises on the Chobe River

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.
