Classic Fly-in Okavango Safari Experience
This 3 day Classic Fly-in Okavango Safari provides you with the opportunity to experience the scenic beauty and serenity of the Okavango wetlands. This Botswana tour will allow you to discover the diversity of life in the Delta.
Your classic safari lodge is situated in a pristine wilderness area adjoining the Moremi Game Reserve. The region has a variety of habitats ranging from papyrus lined water ways to rolling savannahs and tall Mopane forests, all of which abound with wildlife.
Enjoy exciting day and night game drives, tranquil boat cruises in the lagoon, and interesting nature walks. Nature walks are a great opportunity to see the many species of birds in the area. The region has lots of Lechwe on the floodplains, as well as large herds of Wildebeest. A highlight of the trip would be spotting the Painted Hunting Dogs which sometimes pass through.
Day 1: Johannesburg - Maun Okavango Delta
On your first day, you will fly from Johannesburg to Maun before catching a light aircraft to your lodge in the Okavango Delta where you will spend the next 2 nights. Once you have made yourself at home you can set about exploring the Okavango Delta on your afternoon game viewing activity.
On a game drive you can watch Lechwe grazing on the floodplains or Elephant coming down to drink at one of the many channels that make up the Delta. While on a game drive, you might be lucky enough to see Cheetahs or African Wild Dogs in this area of the Okavango. Your game viewing activity is followed by refreshing sundowners and a delicious dinner.
Day 2: Okavango
An early morning wake-up call will signal the start of a new day filled with amazing experiences. You may choose to do a game drive, set-off on a guided walk or a gentle boat cruise in the morning, before returning to the lodge for brunch. During the heat of the day you can relax in your room, or do a spot of fishing for the fierce Tiger Fish.
Afternoon tea will be served on the deck, before you depart on your afternoon and evening safari activity, which may be a canoe trip to explore the lagoon. Alternatively, enjoy an evening / night game drive during which you can see some of the nocturnal inhabitants of the Delta, such as Aardvarks. Predators are also more active at night, and you may come across Lion on a kill. During your game drive, you will stop in a scenic spot for sundowners.
Returning to camp you can savour a delicious African inspired dinner before relaxing around the campfire. Falling asleep surrounded by the night sounds of the Okavango is a memorable experience.
Day 3: Okavango Delta - Maun - Johannesburg
There will be time for one last game viewing activity and breakfast before you catch a return flight to Maun. From there you will catch your return flight to Johannesburg.
