Botswana

 Okavango Explorer - 11 Days

This safari will take you into four different areas: Okavango Delta, Savute, Chobe River and Victoria Falls.

 

This safari starts in Maun (Botswana) and ends in Victoria Falls/Livingstone (Zimbabwe/Zambia)

This is a Mobile Camping Safari with 7 nights in dome tents and 3 nights in fixed accommodation.

Enjoy this rewarding adventure as a participation style safari, where you will erect your own simple camp and cook your pre-prepared meals over an open fire. On this semi-participation safari you will have an English speaking safari guide and a cook.

Day 01: (1 Night) MAUN

Overnight in fixed tents – Bed and Breakfast

Air Botswana will carry you safely from Johannesburg International Airport, which departs around 10:10 am every day, and arrives at Maun Airport, on the fringe of the Okavango Delta, at 11:50am. Upon arrival you will be met by your safari guide and welcomed into Botswana.

Maun is a small town on the southern side of the Okavango Delta, utilised by many Tour Companies and Safari Operators as the starting point for various kinds of adventures. This afternoon you have the option of taking a game-flight in a light aircraft over the Okavango delta (duration of the flight is approx. 1 hour) in order to understand the geological aspect of the Delta as well as to see various species of game, this optional activity is highly recommended.

The Okavango Delta is the world's largest in-land delta, formed where the Okavango River flows out of Angola into the Kalahari desert.

Day 02 & 03: (2 Nights) OKAVANGO DELTA – MOKORO EXCURSION

Overnight in dome tents – Dinner, Bed and Breakfast (drinks excluded)

After a re-stock on supplies, we cross the Thamalakane Fault and continue onto the watery channels that make the Delta famous. We will spend 2 nights camping in the Okavango, travelling on mokoros to get to our camp. There will be opportunity for walks too.

At the River we meet the Mokoro polers who will be your hosts and guides for the 2 coming days. After introductions you will continue on by traditional style dug-out canoe (Mokoro). Gliding along the pristine channels, there are excellent photographic opportunities to capture the beauty of the Okavango.
