This mobile safari explores Moremi and Khwai - the eastern fringes of Botswana's Okavango Delta. You will search for the big cats and wild dogs in the dry woodlands and floodplains and glide silently down meandering waterways in search of hippos, elephants and avian candy.

You will be led by experienced guides eager to share their backyard with you and a seasoned support team to pamper you and move your mobile tented camp between destinations while you are out exploring.

Itinerary

“Dumela / Hello! And welcome to Botswana!”

Once you have landed in Maun, an Africa Geographic representative will meet you at the arrivals hall of Maun Airport – holding a name board with your names displayed. Arrivals from Johannesburg generally land in Maun at about midday. Other participants already in Botswana will need to gather at the airport in Maun, and once the entire group is present, the tour will commence. Departure time is usually at about 13h00. Everyone will be notified before the start of this tour where and when they are expected to meet with the rest of the group.

You will be provided with a snack pack before being handed over to our pilot, who will whisk you away in a light aircraft for a stunning scenic flight over the Okavango Delta and Chief’s Island. This flight promises to deliver an unforgettable eagle’s eye view of the Delta. Before you know it, you will descend and land in Moremi Game Reserve, having saved yourself a three to four-hour dusty road transfer. As soon as you emerge from your aircraft, our ground team will be there to collect you and take you to your mobile tented camp – enjoying game viewing en route to camp.

Arrival at your camp will likely be before sunset and in good time for a chilled sundowner while you put your feet up around the fire and begin the process of ridding your body of stress and soaking up the scents and sounds of Africa. Your bags will be taken to your tent while your delicious dinner is cooked over an open fire, and your guide delivers an essential camp safety briefing. Remember that your camp is not fenced, and dangerous wildlife may walk through the camp at any time of day or night.

Overnight at Moremi Mobile Tented Camp

Your day will be spent exploring the Xaxanaka/3rd Bridge areas of Moremi in your game drive vehicle, during the cool mornings and late afternoons.

While on game drives your guide will use his experience, keen eyesight and understanding of the area to show you as much as he can. He will especially be on the lookout for lions, leopards, elephants, wild dogs, cheetahs, hyenas and honey badgers. It is important to appreciate that sightings cannot be guaranteed, as wildlife movements are subject to many influences, and there is always a degree of luck in successful wildlife sightings.

During the heat of the day you will be back at camp to enjoy a light lunch, siesta, or downtime to download and edit your images, or read a book. As soon as the heat starts to die down you will head out for an afternoon game drive. Expect to be back in the early evening after your sundowner, and to a welcoming camp fire, delicious meal and a night sky packed with stars.

Overnight at Moremi Mobile Tented Camp

Shortly after breakfast, you will head out for a full day in the bushveld while the team takes down and relocates your private camp from Moremi to the Khwai/east Moremi area of the Okavango Delta. Your transfer will be a slow and enjoyable game viewing drive with a stop en route to enjoy a picnic lunch.

You will spend the next three nights at your campsite in Khwai, exploring the floodplains and riverine woodlands on game drives. You will also experience a mokoro (traditional canoe) outing, exploring the Khwai River channels – the easternmost reach of the Okavango river system.

Overnight at Khwai Mobile Tented Camp

These two days will be spent exploring the Khwai area on game drives during the cool mornings and afternoons, and on the mokoro outing which will be scheduled for one of these days. Again your guide will use all of his skills and experience to show you as much as he can of the local wildlife species, and what you see is subject to wildlife movements.

During the heat of the day you will again spend time in camp and your time after the afternoon game drive is spent around the fire.

Overnight at Khwai Mobile Tented Camp

Shortly after breakfast you will slowly drive out of Khwai, game viewing along the way and eventually joining the main road to return back to Maun. En route there will be a short stop to enjoy a last picnic lunch before dropping you at Maun airport, or wherever you require to spend the night. Expect to be in Maun at about noon, in time to check in for your departure flight, or for you other arrangements.
