On arrival at Johannesburg International airport, you will look for the Falcon Safari greeting board as you enter the public area after collecting your baggage and clearing customs. 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. This flight will take around 20 minutes, and provides you with amazing views of the Okavango Delta itself. The focus is on game viewing in this beautiful area of open grassland and ancient Mopani forest, waterways, and Falcons. Activities are game drives and boating.
The Xakanaxa region of the Moremi Game Reserve consistently rewards visitors with fantastic wildlife sightings. Permanent water and varied vegetation zones combine to support the wide range of species that inhabit this area. Boating on the Xakanaxa lagoon and to the heronries of the Xobega and Gudikwa lagoons has become an iconic activity for visitors to this area.

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.
After breakfast, you will be transferred to Kasane airport where you will be met by a Wild Horizon representative for your road transfer to Chundukwa Lodge (1,5 hours).

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.
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.
Our trip consisted of accommodation and tours in Victoria Falls, transfers to Botswana, accommodation and photography safaris there, then transfers back to Zimbabwe. Transfers, accommodation again in Vic Falls.My communication was with Ludwick who was amazing. He went way above and beyond normal service to make me feel confident in the organisation of our trip
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.
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 thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon with the elephants. I rode an 8 year old female, her name is not in my head, and it was magical. She loved her treats at the end of the ride and her trainer was a lovely man. We talked the whole hour and he taught me so much about these magical creatures.
Gertrude was always very prompt in replying during the planning process and very helpful with visa information. This trip to Africa was our first and we started with Kenya and a 10 day safari. We wanted to experience water camps and lodges as well so worked with Falcon to make that happen.
myself and my 13yr old daughter used Falcon Safaris for all our outings as well as airport transfers. Canoeing, Devils Pool visit and Elephant back ride. They were all fantastic especially Vimbai and Edna. We had an amazing time and nothing was too much trouble to sort out for us.
