Day One and Two: Okavango Delta. Tented wilderness camping
and a Kavango canoe (mokoro) exploration trip.
Our adventure begins, as we will take you in a westerly route from Maun, along the western side of the Okavango Delta towards the little village of Etsha, and one of the permanent Delta lagoons.
Once we have reached the edge of the Guma Lagoon (One of the many permanent lakes inside the Delta), our safari equipment and your luggage are transferred into motor-boats.
Cruising through the narrow papyrus-covered Delta channels, there is time to making the most in spotting the spectacular birdlife of the Delta, as well as encountering the various other creatures such as the Water Monitors, crocodiles and even if lucky, the shy Satatunga antelope.
Once we reach our temporary transfer base in the Delta, you will meet-up with our local traditional dugout canoe handlers. They will pole you through the low floodplain waterways to our own private Delta Island. This is a time just to sit back and enjoy the beauty of this unique wilderness area.
We will spend the next two days discovering this beautiful Delta wilderness region, doing guided wildlife walks and by being canoed to the various smaller islands and across the floodplains of the Okavango Delta. From the Delta, we make our way back to Maun.
Wild tented camping with bush toilet and shower. (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner).
Day Three: Maun. Tented camping.
Departing the main Delta, we will back-track our route towards Maun.
Optional Transfer: You could take a scenic optional flight over the Delta to return back to Maun (The one hour scenic flight cost EUR 140 per person, with a minimum of three guests to guarantee this optional flight). To view the Okavango Delta from the air on a low flying flight, provide an amazing experience of this unique Delta water-world. If you do go on the optional flight, you will have the afternoon at leisure in the Delta campsite. While waiting for your scenic flight later in the afternoon, you will have time to look around and to catch up on writing your postcards.
In the mean-time, your group and the guide will make their way back to Maun. At Maun the safari will re-supply for the next section of your Botswana adventure. Your guide will collect you at the Maun airport, and you will have time to do some shopping.
We camp outside the town of Maun. The camp has permanent facilities with flush toilets and hot showers. There is even a small bar (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner).
Day Four to Six: The Moremi Game Reserve. Tented camping.
Departing Maun, we travel into the Moremi Game Reserve. The Moremi is one of the finest wilderness areas in Botswana, and covers both dry bush areas and the eastern side of the Okavango Delta wetlands.
We will spend the next three days game driving in search of the diverse wildlife and interesting birdlife. At night we have time to experience the sounds and beauty of sunset in this pristine wilderness area.
Early mornings and late afternoons is the best time for game drives, and this the time we will go look for our own unique wildlife experiences. During the heat of the midday and lunch-time, we take a break in our camp.
We move camp on day seven to another section of Moremi, to have a better chance of covering as most as possible of our wildlife viewing time.
Our camp is in a private designated section, with bush toilet facilities. Tented camping. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner).
Days Seven to Nine: The Chobe National Park via the Savuti. Tented camping.
Moving north through the Moremi, always looking for new wildlife experiences, we cross first into the drier Savuti region, with its open grass savannahs and many elephants.
From here we cross into the more diverse and scenic green Chobe National Park. We conduct our game drives along the Chobe River and in the region of our private campsite, with normal bush toilet and shower facilities. Tented camping with breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Day Ten and Eleven: One night in a comfortable chalet or lodge accommodation in Livingstone, Zambia.
On day 10: We will still do a game drive this morning, before we cross the Zambezi River at Kazangula, by ferry-boat. From here we drive through the rural southern region along the Zambian side of the Zambezi River to Livingstone. You will have time this afternoon, and the following day (depending on your travel plans) to visit the majestic Victoria Falls, and even have time to visit the very interesting African market to shop for curios.
Keep in mind a visa is required for Zambia, and obtained at the Kazangula Botswana / Zambia border.
No tents tonight! Accommodation is in either a comfortable chalet or lodge in Livingstone (Zambian Victoria Falls). Our adventure ends on day 11 around 10 am, after the morning breakfast.
Tonight’s dinner is for your own account. If you require further accommodation or help in planning the any of the many adrenaline activities on offer in Vic Falls, please feel free to ask for assistance. (Meals for Day 10 & 11: 2x Breakfast, 1x Lunch).
