Four Night Okavango Delta Safari

This is an excellent value safari for those wishing to explore the Okavango Delta with guaranteed water and land activities year round. Camp Moremi and Camp Okavango were some of the first camps sited in the Okavango, set in prime locations. Camp Moremi delivers big game viewing while Camp Okavango offers quintessential water safari activities. A classic combination.

Camp Okavango, the first camp on the itinerary, is situated on a little island surrounded by permanent water within the northern Shinde Concession of the delta. Rebuilt in 2019 this is a beautiful lodge with spacious stilted rooms and common areas. From here guests mokoro and motor boat excursions, getting a real flavour of the Okavango Delta. Walking safaris on nearby islands are also offered, a chance for your guide to showcase his professional tracking skills as well as to introduce you to the flora and fauna which make up this unique eco-system. A helicopter flip from Camp Okavango can be pre-booked and is highly recommended for spectacular views.

Camp Moremi peering out of the tree line at Xakanaxa are in the Moremi Game Reserve gives guests a wonderful opportunity to explore this remarkable Game Reserve. Rebuilt in 2018, Camp Moremi offers a luxurious base for some of the finest game viewing in Botswana with very comfortable and spacious rooms. The Xakanaxa area includes both open grass lands an heavily wooded areas, excellent for varied game viewing. One of the richest eco-systems in Africa, you can expect wonderful game viewing here- large number of plains game and predators roam here.

Extending this to five nights with an extra night at Camp Moremi, for those who have the time, is highly recommended. This would be an additional $590 per person.

Camp Moremi and Camp Okavango are part of Desert & Delta Safaris who operate a portfolio of lodges across northern Botswana with properties in Chobe, the Okavango and Boteti. Extending this itinerary to include their other lodges is one of the most affordable longer itineraries available in Botswana. Please speak to us for more information.

Day 1 and 2

On arrival in Maun, Botswana you will be met by a representative and assisted onto your charter flight to Camp Okavango a short but beautiful flight of 20 minutes. On arrival you will be met by your guide and escorted to camp, a short walk.

Recently rebuilt, Camp Okavango, provides excellent accommodation deep in the delta. Situated on the remote Nxaragha Island at the heart of the permanent Okavango Delta. This assures a year-round delta experience.

Having met the team and settled into your rooms you will enjoy some light refreshments as your guide introduces you to the surrounding environments and discusses the activities on offer at Camp Okavango.

Water-based game-viewing activities are conducted by experienced professional guides who will expertly navigate guests through the many meandering, reed-lined waterways. Roam the vast expanses of water from the comfort of a modern motorboat or explore the intricacies of the Okavango Delta the old fashioned way, in the traditional contours of the Mokoro (canoe).

For those looking to get a little closer to nature, guided bush walks are conducted on a number of the nearby islands, offering an opportunity to track some of the larger land-based species that inhabit this water wilderness. Bird-watching opportunities are outstanding, and fishing for bream and tiger fish is also offered as an activity.

On your day of arrival you will then set off on your first activity in the late afternoon, enjoying a sunset drink out in the Okavango and returning to a roaring camp fire and dinner.

The next day you wake early and after breakfast set off on your chosen morning activity, returning for brunch and a siesta during the midday heat as the animals (and you!) retreat to the shade. Later than afternoon you meet for high tea and depart for your afternoon activity.

This evening your guide will advise for of your flight time to Camp Moremi the next day and plan your morning activity accordingly.

Day 3 and 4

This morning after your morning activity and light breakfast you will check out of Camp Okavango and fly to Camp Moremi, a short flight of about 15 minutes. On arrival your guide will transfer you to camp, a game drive of about 30 minutes. Keep your eyes peeled!

One of the original Okavango camps, set along the Khwai River in the Xakanaxa region of the reserve, Camp Moremi has long held an enviable position for game viewing. The camp was completely rebuilt in 2018 and now stands are a perfect blend of traditional lodge with modern comforts. Large comfortable rooms await and inviting common areas built into the trees. A secluded swimming pool and lagoon side viewing deck provide excellent spaces in which to relax when not on safari.

Having met the team and settled into your new home your guide will discuss your particular interests for this safari. Activities here include both morning and afternoon game drives. These explore the many different habitats of the Moremi Game Reserve. Motorboat excursions explore the Xakanaxa Lagoon and surrounding channels.

The next morning you wake early, enjoy a light breakfast and set off on your morning game drive- tracking the events of the night before when the predators are active. Early morning drives deliver some of the best game viewing as predators can still be active. Game drives last around 4 hours, with a coffee break in between. Returning to camp for a hearty brunch you will enjoy a few hours to yourself to enjoy your lovely room or swimming pool, before setting off again later in the afternoon.
