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 areas.  

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.
