Road Trip Itinerary

Activities Kms Stay
Day 1-4 The first stop on our 2-week trip was Erindi Private Game Reserve. It is located perfectly for a first destination, as it’s only a 2.5-hour drive from Windhoek. 178 Erindi Private Game Reserve
Day 5-6 After a wonderful few days at Erindi, we were ready for a short stopover at Etosha before heading on to Caprivi and, finally, Northern Botswana. 476 Onguma Nature Reserve
Day 7 Next, after our time at Etosha, we began making our way East towards the Caprivi and, ultimately, Northern Botswana. 629 Divava Okavango Lodge and Spa
Day 8-10 Muchenje Safari Lodge is a short 5-minute drive from the Ngoma Bridge Border Control. This is the border crossing that we would recommend using if you choose to cross from Namibia to Botswana. 380 Muchenje Safari Lodge
Day 11-12 Next on the agenda was a “short” 3.5-hour drive in soft sand to Savute Safari Lodge. 103 Savute Safari Lodge
Day 12-14 For the final safari spot on our itinerary, Belmond Khwai River Lodge. We were so excited as the area is renowned for its wildlife encounters. 116 Belmond Khwai River Lodge
Day 15 Unfortunately, our trip has come to an end, and we had to head back to Maun to take our flight home. 129 Maun Airport
