Adrenalin junkies have the opportunity to bungee jump from the Victoria Falls Bridge that connects Zimbabwe and Zambia, or to abseil down the Batoka Gorge.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 - 6

 Maun – Okavango Delta – Maun, Botswana

You have the opportunity to partake in the overnight excursion into the Delta. Rising early, we travel from Maun for a few hours heading north towards the mokoro poler’s station.The Delta region is studded with many local villages where many families live in a traditional way. Some of the villages are very remote and can only be reached by the traditional mode of transport – the Mokoro. Mokoros are dugout canoes manoeuvred through the waterways by local guides who “pole” them through the reeds. At the Mokoro station, we meet our ‘Polers’ and pack our supplies before heading out into the waterways. After a couple of hours along the waterways, we arrive at our mobile tented camp situated in the heart of the Okavango.

Upon arrival you meet the local staff who will be your host during your stay. A brief introduction will be given showing you your dome tent with twin beds and a bush en-suite bathroom – long drop toilet and a bucket shower. Relax in the tent with a cold drink or take a paddle in the Delta in a canoe. The activities at the camp include Mokoro trails and guided walking.

The following day you have the opportunity to enjoy one last game walk in the Delta before making your way back to Maun.  After our Mokoro ride and vehicle swap, we arrive back in time to participate in an optional scenic flight over The Delta (dependent on weather conditions & availability).
