DESCRIPTION OF DAILY ACTIVITIES ON THE OKAVANGO DELTA
 
Day 1: Flights arrive midday from Johannesburg. You will be met for your transfer to our boats (±10 minute drive). Board our boats and enjoy your journey of exploration to the first camp whilst game watching, birding, photography or just relaxing onboard taking in the magnificent views of the Okavango Delta. Lunch will be served on board or on an island.  Arrive late afternoon at your first nights tented camp nestled between dense trees on a small island in the Okavango Delta. At the camp you will find your comfortable private classic tent with bathroom facilities (hot shower and bush toilet). Sun downer cruise on a palm framed lagoon in front your camp.  A three course sit down dinner will be served around the campfire. 
 
Day 2:  Early morning coffee or tea is served with rusks, cereals, fruit and yogurt before departing for a game walk in our island.   Please feel free if you’d prefer to sleep-in and enjoy a leisurely morning in camp. A cooked breakfast will be served after your game walk.  Board boats for your journey to our next camp in one of the most spectacular areas of the Okavango Delta.  In this area the Delta opens up with vast landscapes and more opportunities of encountering game.  Even though vast distances are covered through the Okavango Delta, much time is spent drifting while game watching, birding, photography or just relaxing onboard.  From time to time we do stop off on islands along the way to stretch our legs and explore them on foot. Lunch will be served on one of the many islands along the way. After lunch we continue on our journey to our next camp arriving at sunset. Hot showers will be ready waiting for you before pre-dinner drinks around the camp fire.   A three course sit down dinner is served with fine South African wines. The evening is spent around the camp fire gazing at the stars reminiscing about the day’s experiences in the Delta.
 
Day 3:  After our morning activities, we board our boats to explore the diversity of the Okavango Delta while game viewing, birding or just relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the Okavango Delta.  Lunch will be served back at camp before retiring for an early afternoon siesta or just relaxing in camp. Later on we continue on our journey of exploration by boat returning to camp after sunset. A three course sit down dinner is served with fine South African wines.
 
Day 4: After our morning activities, we depart on a day trip up the Delta to enjoy the diversity of the upper reaches of the Okavango Delta which offers a very different experience from the previous days.  Lunch will be served on one of the many islands along the way.  Return to camp after a sun downer drink on the river. A three course sit down dinner is served with fine South African wines.
 
Day 5: After our morning activities we board the boats for our last day in the Delta drifting downstream before making our way back to Maun.  Relax and enjoy the last but very scenic day on the Okavango Delta. Lunch will be served on one of the many islands along the way. Arrive in Maun for your onward journey and airport transfer if required.
 
NB. Please note that the above itinerary is flexible to suit our guest’s needs and is a rough guide of the daily activities on the Delta.  It may be altered on safari depending on what we encounter along the way and game sightings. Most of our safaris include a two or three night stay at some of the camps.  This allows plenty of time to explore the surrounding area. 
 
A certain amount of physical agility is required as you will need to board and disembark boats in natural wetland areas, however we will assist you if necessary.
