Arrive Maun, Botswana, by mid-day. Charter flight to Linyanti Bush Camp for a three-night stay.
The area’s relative remoteness makes it a favoured wild safari destination and one of the best sought after areas in Northern Botswana. The area is best known for its enormous herds of elephants and buffalo that congregate in vast numbers.
Other resident game includes lion, sable, roan, leopard, wild dog, and plains game. The rare and elusive sitatunga antelope, red lechwe, hippo and crocodile can be found in the surrounding marshes.
Linyanti Bush Camp is a small, intimate 12 bedded tented camp on the banks of the Linyanti marshes in a private reserve, which borders the western boundary of Chobe in the Chobe Enclave. The camp is limited to small exclusive groups who seek a personalized experience in a private concession away from the main tourist’s routes. Activities from the camp consist of game drives, walking, spot lighting and hides.
Take a light aircraft flight to the Khwai airstrip and game drive through the concession area to Khwai Tented Camp for the next three nights of your safari adventure.
Wildlife encountered include lion, cheetah, leopard, wild dog, as well as a multitude of other animals, including elephant, buffalo, zebra, hippo and giraffe to name a few.
Exploring after dark with spotlights offers you an opportunity to experience some of the nocturnal animals that are rarely encountered during the day – and there is also the opportunity to explore the surrounding wilderness on foot and enjoy an up close personal encounter with the varied flora and fauna in the area.
Khwai is a private community run concession on the eastern border of the Moremi Game Reserve along the river Khwai which is the sole source of water for miles around attracting wildlife from afar.
The camp has the romance of a mobile camp, where there are no permanent structures and everything can be removed to leave the wilderness exactly as we found it, having little or no impact on the environment.
Accommodation is tented – spacious and comfortable, with beds and private en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets and bucket showers under the stars.Overnight in a luxury tented camp.
Transfer by charter flight to the Xugana Island Lodge private airfield and take a ten minute boat ride to the main lodge.
The Xugana Lagoon is widely accepted as being the most spectacular permanent water site in the entire Okavango Delta, located in the midst of the Kalahari sands. This is Africa`s largest and most awe-inspiring oasis. The Okavango River rises in the highlands of Angola and never reaches the sea; instead its immense waters empty over the sands of the Kalahari. Here the great desert thirst is quenched in a wilderness of fresh water lagoons, channels and islands. In the heart of this inland delta lies the remote Xugana Island on the edge of the beautiful Xugana Lagoon, assuring a year-round water wilderness experience.
Xugana Island Lodge is situated on a private concession and offers spectacular views and the open boma and al fresco dining area overlooks the Xugana Lagoon.
The lodge accommodates just 16 guests in large raised reed and thatch lagoon facing chalets, with en-suite facilities and private viewing decks.
Exploring the Delta by motorboat or canoe (mokoro), combined with walking on surrounding islands in the concession, gives guests the chance to experience a classic Okavango Delta safari.
