Ghanzi – Okavango Delta, Botswana
Today we travel east to Botswana and the Kalahari Desert which covers of 900 000 square kilometres. A guided walk with the San community provides us with insight into the harsh climate and San people. In the evening we experience some traditional dance, songs and story- telling.
The following morning we enjoy another guided walk with the San community and shortly after, we make our way to Maun where you will have an optional scenic flight over the Delta for those wanting to participate (time and weather permitting). We spend our evening preparing for our full day excursion to the Delta the next day.
NB: Those guests who have pre-purchased the upgrade package – will board the flight into the Delta upon arrival in Maun and will re-join the group in the morning. Please speak to your consultant for your programme of the Okavango Delta Excursion.
This morning we head out early and are transferred via safari vehicle to the poling station where we meet the polers who escort us into the Delta. We are steered through serene areas of reed lined channels which open into magnificent lagoons. When we reach one of the many islands, you may take a nature walk with one of your polers. We then return back to the poling station and may be able to spot some game in this pristine wilderness.
