Coronavirus: a message to our customers
If you are due to travel shortly, we will be in touch to support and guide you in either postponing or cancelling your holiday, based on current Foreign Office advice and your insurance arrangements.
 
We hope that international travel will resume soon, but to ensure you can still enjoy a holiday this year, we have introduced the following new initiatives:
 
(a) For all new 2by2 Holidays we have relaxed our Booking Conditions, with refundable deposits & later final payment dates. This will allow you to plan your next long-haul holiday with more confidence, despite coronavirus uncertainties.
 
(b) We have launched Auriel Holidays – dedicated to finding you a range of wonderful holidays closer to home. Working with like-minded tour operators, who know their destinations intimately, safety is uppermost in everyone's minds. Our holidays within the United Kingdom and Europe will be mindful of this, and can be tailor made to your exact requirements - whether travelling by road, rail, sea or air.
 
After three months of hibernation, we are more than ready to start dreaming again!

Warm regards

Claire Farley, Managing Director

Botswana Mobile Camping Safari
Day 1
You will be met at Maun Airport and transferred into this small town that is the gateway to the Okavango Delta.
 
You will then be transferred 1.5-hours to your tented camp. Relax on the banks of the Gomoti River, where hippo and crocodile are regular visitors, and enjoy the abundant birdlife.
Day 2
This morning enjoy a leisurely game drive to Moremi Game Reserve for your exciting camping safari.
 
Marvel at the contrast between the semi-desert Kalahari and the lush water wilderness you will find on arrival in the Okavango Delta. Settle in to your camp site and relax in this pristine wildlife conservation area.
 
Accommodation is in comfortable 2-person dome tents with camp beds, high density foam mattress, bed rolls with linen & pillow, en-suite portable toilet, warm bucket shower & towels. Tents are erected for you each day and three delicious meals provided, as well as mineral water. South African wine is served with meals in the evening, when you dine under the stars. Any other alcohol & soft drinks must be pre-ordered and paid for locally. Luggage is limited to 12 kg per person in a small sports bag (as large bags cannot fit on the vehicle) plus one camera bag.
Day 3
The seasonal Okavango Delta is flooded annually by the great Okavango River, whose waters flow inland from Angola into the vast Kalahari – never finding the sea, but instead forming a great inland delta whose waters are absorbed by the desert.
 
Comprising 6,000 square miles of crystal clear channels, serene lagoons and a myriad of islands, the Okavango Delta forms a natural oasis that sustains a vast variety of wildlife and birds of all descriptions. The waters are at their height from July to October, forming an amazing wetlands ecosystem that is one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.
 
Activities centre on early morning and late afternoon game viewing and bird watching, with over 240 different bird species. Depending on the season, mekoro excursions may be available as well as game drives to track some of the larger species that inhabit this region - including buffalo, hippo and elephants. In the evening relax around a blazing fire under balmy African skies.
Day 4
Today we continue to explore the vast Moremi Game Reserve, as we travel north to the site of our next camp on the banks of the Khwai River.
 
Enjoy superb game viewing and birding all day in this amazing wildlife sanctuary, where animals migrate freely across huge distances.
Day 5
The Khwai River forms the northern border between Moremi Game Reserve and the Khwai community area. The large floodplains here provide good grazing for many species of antelope and unobstructed seasonal movement of wildlife.
 
Rise early, with coffee and biscuits at first light, to search for predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and hyena. Also antelope such as impala, lechwe, reedbuck and tsessebe and other game such as elephant, buffalo, giraffe and zebra.
 
We may also have the opportunity to explore the surrounding wilderness on foot and mokoro and enjoy an up close and personal encounter with Botswana’s flora and fauna. Exploring after dark with spotlights offers you an opportunity to experience some of the nocturnal animals that are rarely encountered during the day.
 
It is important to note that night drives and guided walks are not permitted within the national parks and reserves. These activities are conducted outside the boundaries of the Moremi Game Reserve in the Khwai community area.
Day 6
Today is one long game drive as we travel 5-hours from Khwai River to Savuti, on sandy roads suitable only for 4x4 vehicles. Enjoy wildlife viewing surrounded by the open savannah and camelthorn trees of Chobe Game Reserve – Botswana’s premier game park.
 
The Savuti Plains offer world-acclaimed game viewing around its waterholes – including the famous Savute lion prides, leopard, wild dogs, bull elephants, black-backed jackal, bat-eared foxes, hyena, cheetah, tsessebe, kudu, impala, ostrich and much more.
Day 7
The summer rains on the Savuti Plains bring a feast for lion, hyena and cheetah, as migrating zebra and wildebeest assemble in a chaotic pattern on the marsh.
 
Cape buffalo herds arrive and migrant birds swell the resident population of over 300 different species, making this a bird watchers delight. Carmine bee-eaters perch on the back of kori bustards, red-crested korhaans plummet from the sky in daring mating displays and marabou storks roost in the trees whilst woodland kingfishers sing you to sleep. Game drives are conducted twice a day (early morning and late afternoon) with balance of day at leisure.
Day 8
Today we continue 5-hours on the 4x4 road from Savuti, game viewing in Chobe National Park which extends all the way to the perennial Chobe River.
 
Chobe is uniquely situated at the confluence of the Zambezi and Chobe Rivers, where four African countries meet – Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia.
 
Settle into your camp in Botswana’s premier wildlife reserve – surrounded by vast endless landscapes, open plains, baobab trees and the abundant river-based wildlife. Relax overlooking the Chobe River and enjoy a beautiful sunset in the atmosphere that only the African bushveld can provide.
Day 9
Rise at dawn to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day and enjoy an open-top game viewing drive in Chobe Game Reserve. This region is home to some of Botswana’s most spectacular wildlife, as well as abundant bird life.
  
Chobe is home to vast herds of buffalo and elephant, as well as numerous other species which roam in profusion and diversity. During the dry season, vast elephant herds migrate from both south and north to congregate in their thousands along the Chobe River – the largest concentration of elephants in the whole of Africa! Also hope to see lion, leopard, cheetah, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons and many other interesting animals before returning to your lodge for breakfast.
 
Bird life along the river is also plentiful and you can hope to see a Fish eagle, Tawny eagle, African openbill stork, Maribou stork, Sacred ibis, Pied kingfisher, Cattle egret, Great Egret, Spur-winged goose and much more, including Botswana's national bird - the glorious Lilac-breaster roller.
 
The rest of the day is free to relax at camp, before enjoying a Sunset Cruise on the Chobe River. After a beautiful African sunset, enjoy the balmy evening and pristine stars of the Milky Way as you have never seen them before – as well as the spectacular Southern Cross.
Day 10
Today we transfer to the Zimbabwe border and, after completing immigration formalities, transfer 2-hours to your hotel on the banks of the Zambezi River, near the mighty Victoria Falls.
 
Check in, settle in and relax whilst you catch your first glimpses of the magnificent Smoke That Thunders first discovered by Dr. David Livingstone and still one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. The flow of water over the Victoria Falls is greatest from February to June following the summer rains, but they are a magnificent sight at any time of year.
 
Lunch for own account, but in the evening enjoy an included farewell dinner.
Day 11
This morning enjoy a tour to the mighty Victoria Falls, before transferring to Victoria Falls Airport for your flight home.
