Arrival in the Okavango Delta

Considered as one of the seven natural wonders of Africa, the Okavango Delta is a jewel in Botswana’s crown.  

One of the reasons this phenomena occurs is due to yearly flooding of the Okavango River which sees vast amounts of rainwater reaching the Delta from Angola.

On arrival in Maun you will be met by your helicopter pilot and flown to the Xaxaba Airstrip. Here your guide will escort you to the your boat transfer to the camp on the river.

The next three nights will be spent camping (in fully serviced en-suite tents) along the Boro River in the Moremi Game Reserve. This will give you ample time to explore the waterways and wilderness of the area by boat or walking. 

Then you will be given the oppurtunity to see the area from the sky by helicopter. Once in the helicopter you will be able to view the larger animals of the delta including elephants, buffalo and herds of lechwe antelope. Hippopotami are also viewable in the waterways. They can be seen lazing about or fighting for territory.

Once you are in the boat, your guide will show you the wonders of the smaller game that can be found along the banks of the majestic river. 

Nature walks are the best way to explore the delta up close and personal.

Explore the Moremi Game Reserve

Much of the Moremi Game Reserve is made up of wide-open floodplains, marshes, lagoons, papyrus fringed channels, woodland and savannah. This safari explores the south-western portion of this region, along one of the Okavango's main waterways.

The wildlife in this area are commonly antelope species, namely red lechwe and impala. Lions often follow the large herds of buffalo that move through the area and the rest of the large predators can also be found in this area, but further away from the river. Hippo's and elephants are seen either in, or next to the rivers.

There are many birds species that can be found in the delta, and if you are a bird enthusiast, this is definitely where you want to be. Some of the bird species, which you have the possiblity of seeing are the globally threatened Slaty Egret and Wattled Crane. The spectacular evening sky is unmatched in this part of the world, so be sure to spend some evenings gazing at the stars on a sky safari.

End of safari

Enjoy your last breakfast before taking the boat transfer back to Maun.

There is also an option of being taken back to Maun by helicopter at an oppitional extra cost. 

Depending on where the camp is situated in the reserve, the boat transfer could take as long as five hours so make sure you have made allowances for this. It's recommended that you consider staying in Maun overnight, which will give you ample time to prepare for your departing flight back to your country of origin. This cost is not included in this price, but we are more than happy to assist you in any way and give you a concrete breakdown of all costs incurred.

Note: Should you want to spend longer in the Okavango Delta, there is another scheduled safari you can join as the dates match up specifically for this option and will afford you a combined nine 9 night safari. If this is the case please contact a Drive South Africa sales consultatnt for more information and a breakdown of costs invloved.
