THE BOTSWANA EXPERIENCE

Beautifully scenic, wild and blessed with an astonishing diversity of wildlife – a safari in the UNESCO-listed Okavango Delta is an experience you won’t soon forget.
BOTSWANA, AFRICA

ABOUT THE ITINERARY

This itinerary will take through one of Africa’s richest wildlife regions, beginning in the Selinda Reserve, a privately-owned concession where twisting waterways and expansive floodplains draw big game as well a host of noisy, colourful birds.

Light aircraft flights will then take you deep into the Okavango Delta to remote island camps where you’ll be able to enjoy vehicle and walking safaris in addition to exploring the delta’s tributaries in a more traditional dugout canoe.

Zarafa Camp, Selinda Game Reserve
DAY 1-4

SELINDA RESERVE

Arrive in Johannesburg to meet your onward flight to Maun. From Maun, you’ll take a light aircraft flight to the Selinda Reserve in the Linyanti Region. You’ll enjoy a remote and untamed location along the ancient Selinda Spillway – the lifeline of this 320,000-acre reserve. This floodplain system acts as a gathering point for the region’s wildlife, so you can expect glorious encounters with huge herds of elephants, buffalo, lion, wild dog, giraffe, spotted hyena, sable and roan antelope. The banks of the Spillway are also rich in birdlife.

From your ecologically sensitive camp, which sits under a canopy of riverine forest, you’ll enjoy bush walks and canoeing excursions whilst game drives and seasonal fishing are also available. Night drives will take you to explore the eastern reaches of the reserve.

Stay: Three nights at Selinda Explorers – full board

Camp Okavango, Okavango Delta
DAY 5-7

GOMOTI PLAINS, OKAVANGO DELTA

Today you’ll move, via light aircraft, to Gomoti Plains Camp in a private, community-run concession within the Okavango Delta. Thanks to its location on a floodplain of the Gomoti River system, you can expect to come into contact with a staggering variety of wildlife on activities that range from morning and evening game drives to excursions by mokoro and motorised boat. Among the riverine forests, wetlands and dry sandveld you could see lions, elephant, hyenas, wild dog, crocodiles, genets, monkeys, mongoose and more than 400 species of birds – to name just a few.

Stay: Three nights at Gomoti Plains – full board

Duba Explorers Camp, Okavango Delta
DAY 8-9

VURUMBA, OKAVANGO DELTA

Your delta experience continues with a light aircraft flight to Little Vurumba, a luxury camp nestled on an island in a pristine private concession. As the camp is surrounded by water and large rivers you’ll have access to a wide range of water-based activities, including the chance to explore the surrounding channels in mokoros (traditional canoes) and motor boats. Open 4x4s will take you to the savannah areas, whilst walking safaris will show you the delta from another perspective. After dark, you can experience a totally different side to the delta and spot elusive nocturnal animals such as aardwolf, lesser bushbaby, porcupine, serval and the large spotted genet.

Stay: Two nights at Little Vumbura – full board

DAY 10-11

FLY HOME

A final light aircraft flight brings you back to Maun. From here you will fly to Johannesburg and then home.
