Explore the still water-lily covered lagoons in a traditional style canoe called a mokoro. Look out for game such as Buffalo and Lechwe which feed on the floodplains, as well as Elephant feeding on the palm islands. In the dry months, you can head out on intrepid game drives, during which you may see Lion, and if you are lucky, Wild Dogs.
You could also choose to do a scenic helicopter flight over the Delta, a thrilling experience that allows you to take in the vast expanse of the Delta, studded with palm islands. This is truly the ultimate Botswana safari experience.
Arriving in Maun from Johannesburg you will board a light aircraft for your flight into the Delta. You will be welcomed by your guide at the airstrip. Then you will enjoy a mokoro (traditional dugout canoe) boat trip to your bush camp where you will spend the first 2 nights of your Unique Elephant Safari experience.
Once you have settled in, the first afternoon will be spent on a game drive getting to know the area. You may see lots of Impala and Tsessebe as well as Lion. Cheetahs are regularly seen in this area of the Delta. You will stop off in a scenic spot for sundowners in the bush. You'll return to camp to enjoy a delicious candlelight dinner.
On the second day of your Botswana safari, you will spend time exploring the Okavango bush on foot in the company of 3 semi-habituated Elephants. Walk alongside them and interact with them as never before. The guides will show you the ropes and give you a rundown on Elephant etiquette before heading into the bush. You'll stop off in the heart of the Delta and enjoy a picnic lunch while the Elephants forage nearby.
There will be time to relax back at camp before the afternoon activity of your choice. Depending on the season, you may choose to go on a dugout canoe ride, a motorboat game viewing excursion or another game drive. This will be followed by sundown cocktails before returning to the safari camp for dinner.
After an exciting morning safari activity and breakfast, you will catch a light aircraft flight into the Moremi Game Reserve situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta, where you will be staying for the next 2 nights. You will be welcomed and you can enjoy a light lunch before settling in.
