This safari is the ultimate way to fully experience the Okavango Delta. Visiting three very different and diverse habitats of the Delta, it gives you a great overall exposure to the vastness and wilderness of this oasis.  Guided by some of Botswana’s top guides with few other tourists and in your own private mobile camps, with game drives, boating, mokoro and on foot, there is no Okavango experience as authentic and real!

Starting off in the famous Moremi Game Reserve the heart and soul of the Okavango, you will be exploring the different habitats and searching for the many animals that call this protected area home. An extended game drive then sees you leave the Moremi and enter the Khwai Community Concession, an area with some of the best game viewing in the country, for another three-night mobile safari! From here you will return to Maun and by boarding a small boat you set off navigating the channels of the Okavango Delta, all the way to Chiefs Island area, which will be your base for the next three nights as you walk and boat on this wildlife island paradise!

This 9-night Okavango safari is well suited for medium to large sized groups seeking to experience the Okavango as adventurous and authentic as possible in their own private mobile camp. The accommodation is simple but comfortable and you will find all the amenities one needs to be comfortable in this pristine wilderness. All three locations differing from one another gives you a great insight into the different habitats of the Okavango and alongside some top-quality guiding, in a range of activities, makes for the perfect Okavango adventure.

detailed itinerary

The Moremi Game Reserve is located on the eastern side of the Okavango Delta and consists of a patchwork of lagoons, shallow flooded pans, plains and forests. The area and diversity of habitat supports a high variety and density of wildlife both big and small and makes for excellent game viewing, particularly of predators.

Mobile safaris follow an old tried and tested formula that ‘takes everything along, but leaves nothing behind’. The safari crew uses a truck to ‘transport the camp’ and they will setup camp before you arrive. Accommodation is in the form of a private canvas setup, specifically for the safari and then moved to the next location by the mobile crew.

Guests can decide the level of luxury of the camp, but all will be in private tents (with proper beds) with on-suite bathroom, including a bucket shower (with hot water!) and basic toilet. The safaris are fully guided by the best local guides and guests travel in open game viewing vehicles between locations. The food is prepared by an experienced bush chef who prepares delicious meals on the open fire.

The Khwai concession is located on the eastern side of the Okavango Delta with the Khwai river forming the boundary between the Moremi Game Reserve and the concession. The area is home to some of the best game viewing as the herbivores from the drier surrounds are forced to come to the Khwai river in order to drink. This in turn supports large concentrations of predators especially leopards and if you are lucky, also Painted wolves.

This is a serious Okavango expedition safari! Led by one of Botswana’s most experienced guides and guide trainer, Okwa Sarefo. A good friend of Gesa and Frank, Okwa was born and raised in the Delta where he now follows his passion of sharing this water and wildlife paradise with guests from all over the world in his own authentic and personal way.

The expedition starts from Maun from where you boat into the Delta for a few hours (wildlife all the way!) until you are well and truly deep into its untouched wilderness. You will arrive in a pre-setup basic mobile camp where the friendly camp staff and chef will be catering to your needs over the next few nights. The accommodation is in the form of dome tents with proper beds, en-suite pitfall toilet and a bucket shower. All the creature comforts one needs out here in paradise.

This camp will be your base from where you will explore the surrounding area and nearby islands on foot in un-armed walking trips, by mokoro (traditional canoe) and also by boating. Combine these fantastic low impact activities with Okwa’s wealth of local knowledge and experience in the Delta creates what we think is the ultimate way to explore this wilderness!
