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 safari 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. Camp Okavango guests can partake in mokoro and motor boat excursions and thus experience a real feeling for the Okavango Delta as a water safari destination. 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 of this natural Eden.

Camp Moremi, peering out of the tree line at Xakanaxa is in the Moremi Game Reserve giving 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 grasslands and heavily wooded areas, excellent for varied game viewing. One of the most diverse eco-systems in Africa, you can expect wonderful game viewing - large number of plains game and the sought-after predators that follow them.

For those guests who have additional time on hand ,extending this itinerary to a five night safari with an extra night at Camp Moremi, 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. An affordable option, if wanting to extend your itinerary, is to include one or two of their other lodges into your safari plan. Please speak to us for more information.

Day 1 and 2

On arrival in Maun, Botswana you will be met by a representative guide 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 allocated Camp Okavango guide and escorted to camp, a short walk away.

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, Camp Okavango ensures an excellent year-round delta experience.

Having met the team and settled into your rooms, you are then invited to tuck into some light refreshments as your guide introduces you to the surrounding environment and discusses the activities on offer at Camp Okavango. At an agreed time, you will meet during the late afternoon and depart for your first afternoon activity -enjoying a sunset drink out in the Okavango Delta and returning to a roaring camp fire and dinner approximately four hours later.

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, relaxing 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 a popular activity at Camp Okavango.

On the following morning, you are awakened early and after breakfast set off on your chosen morning activity, returning for delicious brunch and a siesta during the midday heat as the animals (and you!) retreat to the shade. Later that afternoon you meet again for high tea and depart for your afternoon activity.

This evening as you appreciate a sumptuous full course dinner ,your guide will advise you of your flight time to Camp Moremi the next day and plan your morning activity accordingly.

Day 3 and 4

This morning, following your morning activity and a light breakfast you will check out of Camp Okavango and depart the airstrip for your flight to Camp Moremi, a short flight of about 15 minutes. On arrival your guide will transfer you to camp by safari vehicle, a game drive of about 30 minutes. Keep your eyes peeled along the way!

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 as a perfect blend of traditional lodge with modern comforts. Large comfortable rooms await guests and inviting common areas are 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 temporary home, your guide will discuss with you your particular interests on this safari. Activities here include both morning and afternoon game drives. These 4 x4 ventures out into the wilderness explore the many different habitats of the Moremi Game Reserve. Motorboat excursions explore the Xakanaxa Lagoon and surrounding channels.

Rejuvenated with a selection of delicious tea and cakes, you will set off on your first afternoon activity into the Moremi This includes a sundowner stop just as the sun begins to set . Return to camp before dark and in time for dinner.

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 have recently been active. Early morning drives deliver some of the best game viewing as predators can still be lurking around during the cooler dawn hours before temperatures start soaring. Game drives last around 4 hours, with a coffee break in between. Return to camp for a hearty brunch after which you will have several hours in which to relax and take advantage of your lovely room or have a cooling dip in the swimming pool, before setting off again later in the afternoon.

Day 5 - End of Safari

The time for your flight to Maun will be finalized the day before and your guide will advise you what time you will be leaving camp. The flight back to Maun will always be scheduled to connect with any onward travel arrangements. Depending on the time of departure from camp, and as arranged by your guide, you will have the opportunity to indulge in one final morning activity and mouthwatering brunch before bidding farewell to the Okavango. The flight to Maun will take approximately 20 minutes, depending on stops along the way. On arrival a representative will meet you to ensure you connect to your onward travel arrangements.

Flights to Kasane, for access to Chobe or to Victoria Falls can be arranged at an additional cost.
