Trip Report Mashatu, Kgalagadi to Caprivi and a Moremi mobile with Masson Safaris

Jump to last reply

This year we were a party of 5 on a soft adventure safari followed by a 6 day Moremi mobile with Masson Safaris. The trip treport is available at http://safaritalk.net/topic/13263-mashatu-kgalagadi-to-caprivi-overland-and-a-moremi-mobile-with-masson-safaris-6-weeks-in-southern-africa-2014/

Photo galleries, including accommodation for 2014 are online at https://picasaweb.google.com/Treepol

The highlights were:

5 cheetah cubs at Mashatu

Leopard and baboon antics at Mashatu

Owls

Male lion stalking in Kgalagadi, lions everywhere including the Caprivi

African Wildcat and honey badger in Kgalagadi

Brown hyena at Okaukuejo

Village and kraal life along the Angolan border and through the Caprivi

Carmine bee-eaters at Mazambala Lodge

An impromptu visit to a Caprivi mission

The stunning scenery and bewitching colours of Namibia from the Kalahari to the Caprivi

Sable and roan in Mahango Game Reserve

Serval and Black Mamba in Moremi

The final itinerary was:

Mashatu Tent Camp (4 nights)

Twee Riverien (3 nights)

Kalahari Farmstall (3 nights)

Anib Kalahari Lodge (1 night)

Desert Breeze, Swakopmund (2 nights)

Erongo Wilderness Lodge (1 night)

Palmwag (2 nights)

Okaukuejo (2 nights)

Halali (1 night)

Mushara Bush Camp (2 nights)

Hakusembe River Lodge (1 night)

Mazambala Lodge (2 nights)

Nunda Lodge (2 nights)

The Kraal, Maun (1 night)

Masson Safaris Mobile 6 nights in Moremi Game reserve

The Kraal, Maun (1 night)

The itinerary was designed to visit a variety of environments to maximise wildlife viewing opportunities in the varied environs of the Tuli Block, the deserts of Kgalagadi (KTP) and Etosha, the coast at Swakopmund and the Caprivi and Moremi wetlands. KTP delivered for us with lion, owls and a honey badger. We travelled from the coast to the Caprivi via Etosha to see the full gamut of Namibia’s wildlife. And what a grand drive it was for awe-inspiring scenery, colourful birds and wishlist rarities of brown hyena, sable herds and roan. Moremi delivered longed for sights of serval and a black egret hooding together with wetland scenery, mud-wrestling ele style, owls and black mamba. The final itinerary included more one night stays than I originally planned, however we sacrificed some 3 night stays to keep travel to less than 400 km most days.
