Leaving Johannesburg we make our way to visit the Khama Rhino Sanctuary before heading to Maun in Botswana to prepare for our Okavango Delta experience. Photograph hippos and crocodiles from your Mokoro (dugout canoe) before heading up to Chobe National Park.

Botswana - Tuli Block
We depart Johannesburg and head north, crossing the border into Botswana. Our accommodation tonight is situated in the area known as the Tuli Block, which is a narrow piece of land between Botswana and Zimbabwe and is renowned for it’s geographical features.

This morning we board our local 4×4 truck transport for our trip into the Okavango Delta, where we meet with our local guides and polers for our mokoro (traditional canoe) trip to our remote bush camp. In the afternoon there is a nature walk with a local guide which gives a great chance to view wildlife on foot. Tonight is spent swapping stories around the camp fire and enjoying the serenity of the Delta.
This morning we board our planes and head into the Delta. After a wonderful scenic flight we arrive at our base for the next two days. During your time in the Delta we enjoy the best nature has to offer. We go on nature walks and explore the Delta by mokoro traditional canoe (water level dependant). The Delta is truly spectacular and an unforgettable experience as the wild animals here are not used to people. Simply sitting and relaxing often results in rewarding bird or game viewing.
Okavango Delta – Moremi Game Reserve
After an early breakfast, we will pack up camp and set out by Mokoro, travelling through the crystal clear waters of the Okavango Delta. Remember to keep an eye out for the wildlife that comes to waters edge for an early morning drink.

The pans are home to 165 different species of birds, including pelicans, spoonbills, eagles, ostriches and flamingos, that make the Sanctuary their home at different times of the year according to their migratory behaviour.
Kasane - Chobe National Park
