UNCHARTED AFRICA MOBILE SAFARI EXPEDITIONS, BOTSWANA
Okavango Delta, Moremi Reserve & Central Kalahari Game Reserve, 8 nights safari, start & end Maun Airport
The Central Kalahari Game Reserve offers excellent Game viewing from the 1st of January – 30th March.
This experience is ideally added on to a Wet Season Okavango Delta Mobile Expedition itinerary.
On arrival, you will be met at Maun Airport by a representative and transferred by light aircraft into the Moremi
Game Reserve where you will be met by your guide. Once in the Moremi, a slow meandering game drive to familiarise yourselves
with the area, then into your first camp in good time to enjoy sundowners and dinner.
Breakfast in the first light of day and head out in the safari cars for your introduction to some of the animals of the
dry floodplain environment, looking for zebra, wildebeest, impala and predators such as wild dog and cheetah.
Return to camp for lunch and a siesta. After consuming an embarrassingly large spread of tea and cakes, head off
for sundowners. Park at the edge of a lagoon and watch herds of elephants and a myriad of birds coming down to drink whilst the sun sets and you are given an informal talk on the geological history of the area.
Return to camp for a sumptuous dinner.
After a hearty breakfast; set out for the whole day to explore the wider area around camp. Search out the creatures and plants
typical of the ecosystem and explore the interrelationships of species and the systems in which they live. Seek out the elusive predators such as lion, cheetah and leopard and observe and interpret their behaviour. Picnic and enjoy a siesta under a shady
mangosteen. Spend your afternoon indulging yourself completely in seeking out your favourite species.
Leopard spotting, lion tracking, cheetah chasing and dog discovering; if you want to watch lions mating for two hours
or prefer to watch bee-eaters hawking insects on the wing then so be it. Return to camp for dinner – tired, but happy.
After breakfast, take a slow drive to the lagoon’s edge and board a boat to explore the waters of the Delta.
The deep open lagoons provide a wonderful contrast in habitat after the dry forest areas and floodplains of your first
camp. Putt along the maze of channels, stopping to admire rare birds and the diversity of aquatic life.
Spot small crocodiles basking in the sun on sparkling white sandbanks and hippos jousting for territories with spectacular
splashes and clashes of jaws and some serious dental equipment. Learn about the ecology of the waters and look at all
the important components of the ecosystem. Have a picnic lunch on a sandy bank in the river and cool off at a safe swimming
spot. Arrive at your private, lantern-lit camp on an island, deep in the delta, just after sunset. Shower and relax around the fire
before dinner under the stars. Sleep in a mosquito net tent and luxuriate in the freedom of a night in the open, surrounded
by nature at her very best.
Rise early and after a short walk around the island, hop back into your boat for a meander through the waterways, absorbing
the tranquillity of the lagoons and narrow, papyrus-fringed, hippo trails and immersing yourself completely in the incredible spectacles that the Delta has to offer. Search out hippo and bathing elephants to understand the importance of the Okavango
to these enormous creatures. Marvel at the majesty of elephants from only a few yards away as they wash and feed on the roots of aquatic plants. Drift back to the vehicles. Enjoy a final game drive and picnic lunch en route to Xakanaxa airstrip, before you say
your farewells to the Delta. Air transfer to Central kalahari via Maun.
