Itinerary

Days 1 & 2 – Okavango Delta: Upon arrival in Maun and after you clear customs, you will be met and transferred by light aircraft to Kwetsani Camp in the Okavango Delta, arriving in time for dinner. Meals and overnights here. (B, L, D, Dr)

Kwetsani Camp consists of six furnished ‘tree-house’ chalets, each with its own en-suite bathroom, which is an open, airy accommodation of thatch, wood, glass, and canvas. The camp offers excellent land and water activities dependent on the annual flood levels of the Okavango Delta. Game drives, as well as breathtaking wildlife viewing by mokoro and boat are available.

Days 3 & 4 – Moremi Wildlife Reserve: After a morning activity and breakfast, fly by light aircraft to Chitabe Camp in the Moremi Wildlife Reserve. Enjoy two days of game drives and activities. Meals and overnights at Little Vumbura Camp. (B, L, D, Dr)

Little Vumbura’s six tented suites are connected to each other and the main lodge by wooden walkways, giving the entire property a storybook feel. Vumbura is one of the best places for viewing sable and wild dogs and the variety of local frogs is astounding as might be expected given all the water and wetlands in and near the camp. A pool and reading areas overlook the floodplains and a stargazing deck is perfect for an after-dinner drink under the night sky. Boat and Land Rover game viewing excursions are a staple of any stay here.

Days 5, 6, & 7 – Linyanti Wildlife Reserve: After a morning activity and breakfast, fly to Duma Tau in the Linyanti Reserve. Arrive in time for lunch and an afternoon activity. Enjoy two more days of game drives and activities in the Linyanti. Meals and overnights at Duma Tau Camp. (B, L, D, Dr)

Duma Tau (meaning ‘roar of the lion’) is a ten-room luxury tented camp, in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, bordering the western boundary of Chobe National Park. The camp was rebuilt completely in 2012; it is raised off the ground to take advantage of the sweeping dramatic river views. Each en-suite tent is spacious, spreading out under a canvas roof, with a wraparound clear-story window that allows for dramatic views of the riverfront, as well as the sounds of Africa.

Day 8 – Maun/Depart: After breakfast and a final glimpse of the wildlife reserve, you will fly by light aircraft to Maun Airport where you will take your connecting flight home.** (B)

LET OUR JOURNEY SPECIALISTS HELP CREATE YOUR TRIP OF A LIFETIME

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

What experiences have you been dreaming of?
