Itinerary

Day 1: Maun: Botswana

Once you arrive at Maun airport, you will be transferred to the rest of the group, which should arrive at sunset today. Enjoy wonderful views from the Boteti River bank – bird watching is excellent along the Boteti River. Hippo grunts will keep you company as you sleep tonight.

Meals: Dinner
Accommodation: Maun Lodge
Distance: 30 km

Day 2 – 3: Okavango Delta, Botswana

After an early start, we leave the lodge and head back towards Maun in time to catch your connecting flights into the Okavango Delta.

As the Okavango River flows south- and eastwards from the highlands of central Angola, it creates one of the largest inland deltas in the world, where it slows and spreads into a unique ecosystem that supports a wide array of animal and plant species. There is something inherently beautiful about the sight of a Jacana striding delicately amongst the flowering lilies, the Bee Eater diving to catch an unsuspecting insect, and the familiar cry of the African Fish Eagle which all contribute to the creation of a unique natural masterpiece. Over time, the river disappears into the vast plains of the Makgadikgadi sands after spilling its contents into the vast plains.

Our comfortable and well-equipped camp is situated on the edge of one of the largest lagoons and serves as a base of operations from which we explore the surrounding area. A mokoro will glide through narrow reed-lined channels, we will walk on uninhabited islands and picnic in the wilderness, while local guides who have grown up in the region will inform us about the animals and plants that inhabit the Delta. As we interact with our guides informally, we will gain a better understanding of the way of life of the local people in this remote wilderness. In addition to relaxing, we also have the opportunity to take a stroll with our guide, take a refreshing swim in the pool, or simply enjoy the views of a glistening lagoon from a beautiful wooden deck. We take a boat cruise in the afternoon and enjoy a relaxing sunset.

Meals: Breakfast x2, Lunch x2, Dinner x2
Accommodation: Twin Bedded Tented Units (Linen provided)
Included Highlights: Okavango Delta, Guided walks in the Delta led by local Motswana guides, Mokoro trip, Sunset Boat trip

Day 4 – 7: Flexible Game Reserve Schedule Khwai Area, Botswana

we begin the day early and embark on our second flight which takes us over the vast expanses of the Delta and Moremi National Park, to the Khwai airstrip. Watch out for wildlife that inhabits the Delta while taking in the breath-taking sights of its vast expanse.

As you fly, your luggage and all the camp equipment will have been transported by our support vehicle. Our ground crew will greet you on arrival and transport you in open vehicles to our campsite on the banks of the Khwai river, where the support staff have erected our tents. It is undoubtedly a highlight of the tour to have such a wild experience.

To make the most of our time here, we game-drive extensively for the next 4 days during the day. We explore the Khwai concession and the famous Moremi and Savuti reserves in 4×4 Land Cruisers with our Motswana guides. Routes are flexible and depend on the season.

From palm tree plains to marshlands, dense Mopane woodlands and Acacia scrub, the vegetation changes constantly. Game viewing is excellent in this variety of habitats. Unlike the roads in national parks, where they are just tracks in the sand, the 4x4s aren’t just for show. The only items we carry are our cameras and daypacks, a picnic lunch and drinks for the trip.

Our camp in the bush awaits us just before sunset, with a warm fire lit by the ground staff. As soon as you have enjoyed a hearty meal, it is time for you to retire. A hyena’s howl or a lion’s earthy roar or even the grunt of a semi-submerged hippo may lull you to sleep while you drift off to sleep. As if we are the first people to ever occupy this site, we are totally secluded and undeveloped – it is as if we are the only people on this planet. In order to ensure that we leave nothing behind when we depart, we bring everything we may need.

Our journey may also take us to the Central Kalahari Game Reserve or the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, depending on the ever-changing wildlife conditions in the National Parks.

Meals: Breakfast x4, Lunch x4, Dinner x4
Accommodation: Serviced Camping – Two man dome tents
Included Highlights: 4×4 open vehicle game drives, Private non-fenced campsites, Extensive first-hand game viewing experience, Explore the heart of National Geographic’s photography region

Day 8: Maun, Botswana

As we make our way back to Maun after our last morning in the parks, we slowly game drove through the park. In the afternoon, we enjoy an own expense lunch and explore the town. Afterwards, we’ll stock up on basic supplies before traveling to our overnight stop at Maun Tented Lodge.

Boteti River flows along the banks of the lodge. Seasons and rainfall patterns affect the flow direction of this river. With a swimming pool, bar, restaurant, and tented en-suite accommodation, the lodge offers a comfortable stay.

A catered meal and a comfortable night await us at the lodge this afternoon.

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner (Lunch – own expense)
Accommodation: Maun Tented Lodge
Included Highlights: Game drive on the way out of the park, Visit to Maun
Optional Activity: Game flight, fixed wing or helicopter
Distance: ±225 km

Day 9: Maun, Botswana

We start the day with a delicious breakfast before our tour comes to an end today.

Meals: Breakfast
