Windhoek - Ghanzi. It's an early departure this morning as we head for the border and make our way into Botswana. We lay our heads this evening in the small town of Ghanzi, in the middle of the Kalahari Desert. This afternoon you'll have the option of a number of activities that will allow you to interact with the native Bushman people who reside in this area. You'll learn about their way of life and how they are able to survive in such an arid and desolate area.
Overnight: Ghanzi | Breakfast, Lunch
Ghanzi - Maun - Okavango - Maun. Travelling north on day 3 we reach Maun, which is the starting point for the majority of people travelling to the Okavango Delta. This evening we begin our preparations for the following day.
On day 4 we rise early and head north to the Mokoro poler's station. Along the drive we'll see a number of local villages where families have lived in a traditional way for many years. Mokoros are dugout canoes manoeuvred through the waterways by local guides who “pole” them through the reeds. After a leisurely glide through the delta we reach our accommodation for the night. The afternoon and evening will offer the chance to relax with a cold drink or take a dip in the delta. The Okavango Delta, travelling from the Angolan highlands, is the largest inland delta in the world and is studded with lushly vegetated islands and unique bird life, with over 400 avian species.
On day 5 we have the opportunity to take a game walk through the delta before we take a mokoro ride back to our vehicle in time for lunch. From here there will be an optional scenic flight over the vast expanse of water (dependent on weather conditions & availability). This afternoon we continue back to Maun.
Overnight: Maun (2), Okavango Delta (1) | Breakfast x 3, Lunch x 2, Dinner x 1
Maun - Nata Region. Departing Maun we head east around the edge of the scarcely populated area of the Makgadikgadi Pan. One of the largest salt flats in the world it is the vast remains of an early super lake. After reaching our accommodation this afternoon we have the option of taking a game drive or a bushwalk.
Overnight: Nata Region | Breakfast
Nata Region - Kasane. We continue north this morning travelling to the town of Kasane and to our accommodation on the banks of the Chobe River. The Chobe River is a natural border which divides Botswana, Namibia and Zambia. Be on the look out for the local hippos hiding just below the surface.
As the main water source of the region, the river attracts an abundance of wildlife to its shores, and our accommodation is the perfect place to spot any game that've made their way down to the water's edge.

Kasane - Chobe National Park. This morning offers some free time to relax or explore the local town of Kasane before we prepare for our Chobe National Park Overnight Mobile excursion – an overnight experience in the wilds of the Chobe National park.

Spend the afternoon in search of wildlife while we game drive to our camp within the park where we spend the evening surrounded by the night-time noises of the local wildlife. Look out for the rare Sable and Roan Antelope on your game drive, with their majestic backward slanting horns, or try keep a count of the Lilac Breasted Roller’s that swoop by!
