Day One

Maun/Okavango Delta

Our safari starts In the tourist town of Maun, we have a welcome briefing, before we head out on our next adventure. Depending on your itinerary we either have lunch at Sitatunga camp or a packed lunch on the way. The Okavango Delta is recently designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

In the midafternoon we arrive at our mobile tented camp situated in the heart of the Okavango.  Dependent on water levels we may travel via Mokoro (Traditional Dug-Out Canoe) or drive into the camp.  On arrival you will meet the local staff who will be your host during your stay.  A brief introduction to the camp will show you’re your dome tent with twin beds and a bush en-suite bathroom – long drop toilet and a bucket shower.  Relax in the mess tent with a cold drink or take a paddle in the lagoon in a canoe. The activities at the camp include Mokoro trails and guided walking.

We spend a relaxing 2 nights at this camp. 

  • Camping in dome tents with roll mats and sleeping bag. 
  • Clients are expected to participate in preparing meals and the setting up of camp.
  • Lunch and dinner included.

Day Two

Okavango Delta

Most days at camp follow a similar pattern; the clatter of the Water bucket lets you know your shower is ready. Up before the sun, you set out on foot, to explore the area once again in search of game. Meet other guests for breakfast then take a Mokoro to explore further. Take time to catch up on your reading or view the birdlife from the mess tent.

Lunch is normally served at around 13h00. After lunch your time is yours to relax or have a go at poling the mokoro’s or ask the guides to find a swim spot for you before the afternoon outing.

After siesta is afternoon tea, before the activities commence. Return to camp in the late afternoon for a sundowner while you help prepare dinner.

During the evening your hosts can be encouraged to share stories around the fire of their lives and lands. Be prepared if your Botswana hosts put on a song for you they will be expect one in return!  As the evening draws to a close lay back and listen to the music of life - the sounds of the African bush!

  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included.

Day Three

Moremi Game Reserve

Leaving ‘The Okavango Delta’ the safari travels to the world renowned Moremi Game Reserve. Two days are spent exploring the park in search of wildlife both big and small. Moremi is a prime wildlife area where elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah and most other game can be seen.  Moremi Game Reserve is one of the most unforgettable wildlife experiences in Africa! 

After setting up camp we have a light lunch followed by a late afternoon game drive in Moremi or the Khwai Concession, of course a sundowner is in order while you take in the colors of the sunset. Back at camp we gather to prepare our evening meal and then move to the campfire to share stories of the day’s adventures. Retreat to the comfort of your tent you can fall asleep listening to the sounds of the African Bush. 

  • Camping in dome tents with roll mats and sleeping bag. 
  • Clients are expected to participate in preparing meals and the setting up of camp.
  • Lunch and Dinner included.

Day Four

Moremi Game Reserve

A typical safari day starts at sunrise, with Tea and Coffee around the campfire before we head out on an early morning game drive.   The best time of day to enjoy game viewing is early in the morning and late afternoon as most animals are active in the cooler parts of the day.

Having spent the morning exploring the wilderness, we return to our camp for lunch, before a siesta or just relax with a book and the sounds of the wilderness.

Afternoon tea is best in the cool of the afternoon before you head out into the wilderness once more.  We spend the day game driving and watching water holes as the animals gather to quench their thirst and marvel at yet another African sunset. 

Day Five

Maun

Quick breakfasts with tea or coffee before enjoying our final game drive in the morning.  We head out of the park and return to Maun/Sitatunga Camp.
