Day by Day Overview

Your trip begins as you fly over herds of elephants while on your short charter flight from Maun International Airport to Moremi Game Reserve. We are there to meet you as you step off the plane in the game reserve, located inside the famous Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world. The Okavango Delta has more animal diversity than any other part of Botswana!

You will stay in luxury tented accommodation and be accompanied by a professional guide, safari chef, and camp assistants who will cater to your needs. You will be treated to three meals daily, skillfully prepared by the safari chef, who possesses the remarkable ability to create sophisticated and delectable meals even in the midst of the wilderness.

You will spend several days exploring the Moremi Game Reserve and camping in the Xakanaxa region on the northeastern side of the Moremi Game Reserve. The reserve is considered to have some of the best wildlife viewing areas. You will quickly fall under the enchantment of the seasonal flood plains, extensive lagoons, wooded islands, riverine forests, and, most of all, the wildlife!

Keep your camera close as Moremi is Africa’s best game reserve for viewing the endangered African wild dog, not to mention at least four lion prides and multiple herds of elephants. Lechwe antelopes are also commonly found in the area.

Today, you have another early start. We will leave camp just after sunrise and head for the morning game drive. The Xakanaxa area offers a very interesting and varying habitat for wildlife – gigantic mopane forest opening up to wide open spaces of floodplains and seasonal and permanent swamps. This area’s wildlife is spoilt for habitat, from islands to woodlands and floodplains to permanent swamps. With such diverse habitats, time spent in this area is quite rewarding. After an adventurous day, spend the evening enjoying delicious cuisine and then retire to your cosy tents for a good night’s sleep.

The fifth day is a day filled with adventure! Following an early morning breakfast, you will take a slow drive through Moremi Game Reserve northeast towards the Khwai Community Area, complete with an open-air picnic. The day’s journey follows the Manuchira Channel, known as the Khwai River at its easternmost extremity. The path weaves from the riverside and floodplains into the mopane tree woodlands that make Khwai one of the most scenic areas in the Okavango Delta.

Keep your hand on your camera because, on our way to the Khwai Community Area, you pass the magnificent Dombo hippo pools in the morning, stopping to enjoy the scenery and the antics of the resident hippos. The eastern mopane forest is also home to breeding herds of elephants. Bull elephants hang along the riverside most of the year and revel in the cool water of the Khwai. While drinking and bathing, they are far more approachable here than among the breeding herds.

You will spend your time between the leadwood and camel thorn woodlands, savannahs, the riverside, and the marshy backwater of the Khwai. Khwai is a predator-rich area known for having a high concentration of all types of wildlife and is one of the best places in the Okavango Delta for elephant sightings. Along the river is a high density of hippos and crocodiles, leopards, lions, and cheetahs. Both Xakanaxa and Khwai are included in the home ranges of different packs of wild dogs. You may also notice southern giraffes, Burchell zebras, greater kudus, tsessebe, waterbuck, and sable antelope.

The Khwai is also ideal for a mokoro (shallow canoe) safari. On day seven only, you can explore the Okavango and go to places only accessible by mokoro. You can photograph aquatic birds, plants, and water lilies at eye level as you will be low to the water. During this excursion, you will be guided by an expert “poler” (a guide at the rear of the boat that moves it along with a long pole) through the bulrushes (plants) and marshes.

Note: Mokoro excursions are dependent on the water level of the channel. If the water is not high enough, all our activities will be game drives.

Today is a travel day. You will work your way back to the airstrip and your charter flight back to Maun International Airport (or another destination).

But it is not over yet…

After breakfast, you will take one final game drive to allow you to photograph whatever you wish on the open-air drive back to the airstrip. You will have one last chance to snap as many pictures as possible of elephants, hippos, zebras, and other wildlife around the delta. At the airstrip, we will help you load and settle for your short charter back to Maun.
