The lodge where you will stay for the next 2 nights is in the seasonal floodplains of the Okavango, providing drama and excitement at every turn. Once you have settled in and refreshed after your journey, there will time for an afternoon activity. There is something special about this area during the dry season and the floodwaters are at their highest - your experienced guides will explain this phenomenon to you in detail.
Day 2: Okavango

During a walk with the Elephants you will become acquainted with these gentle giants and learn a little more about their habits. This is a life changing experience, and one you will treasure for years to come.

As you sit around the campfire or lie in your bed you will be overwhelmed by a sense of having done something special.

There will be time for an afternoon activity before a sumptuous dinner under starry skies.
