This beautiful area of the Delta has several different habitants which vary from open waterways and lagoons to dry Kalahari grasslands. Depending on annual flood waters you will enjoy trips in makoro canoes, boating, fishing and day and night game drives. The bush camp is surrounded by vast floodplains which provide some of the most dramatic scenery in Botswana.
A highlight of your Okavango tour will be receiving a soothing massage while gazing out at the water lily covered lagoon. Set out to explore the beautiful palm fringed islands nearby, where you may see some of the rarer inhabitants of the Delta.
You will start your Botswana safari by catching a flight from Johannesburg to Maun, where a light aircraft will take you to your bush camp in a remote location in the Okavango Delta. You will spend the next 2 nights at a comfortable bush camp which is situated in the area of deepwater channels and wide floodplains. After a tasty light lunch, you'll have time to settle in before the afternoon game activity.
You may choose to do a boat cruise, or set out on a makoro ride through the channels and waterways, stopping on a scenic island for sundowners before returning to the bush camp for a sumptuous dinner.
