DAY ONE – Maun Airport to Xaxaba Mobile Camp Island
Guests will board a scheduled flight from Maun to Xaxaba Airstrip in the Okavango Delta, where your guide from Xaxaba Mobile Camp will pick you up in a motorboat.
Climb aboard and enjoy the boat cruise through the Delta waterways to Xaxaba Island. Arrive to welcome drinks and receive a briefing by the camp host before being shown to your classic canvas safari tent under the trees. After some
refreshments it’s time for a sunset boat cruise. Your guide will pack a cooler box with your choice of drinks and you will depart the island and cruise into the sunset. Enjoy the Delta’s beauty and birdlife for a couple of hours before returning to camp for dinner and your first night on Xaxaba Island.
Early wake up call followed by coffee and breakfast in the dining tent. After breakfast you will depart on a walking safari through the Okavango Delta & Chiefs Island. Remember your camera and sun block, as you will be out on the activity until late morning.
Upon returning to camp, you are welcome to have a warm bucket shower and refresh before lunch is served in the dining tent. Sit down and enjoy a good meal, followed by an afternoon siesta, or a spot of birdwatching on the island. High tea is served later in the afternoon and a sunset mokoro cruise complete with sundowners awaits to end the day. After your sunset cruise, return to camp to enjoy the campfire and a 3-course dinner before tuning in for your last night on Xaxaba Island.
Early morning wake up, followed by breakfast and your departure from Xaxaba Mobile Camp. Enjoy the boat cruise from Xaxaba Island back to airstrip. Here you will connect with your light air transfer out of the Okavango Delta to Motswiri Airstrip in the Selinda Reserve.
Here, you will be met by your guide from Motswiri Camp and climb aboard the game viewer for the last distance to camp. Upon arrival, enjoy a refreshment and settle into your room before departing on an afternoon game drive with sundowners. The evening brings a convivial night around the campfire overlooking the Selinda Spillway, followed by a 3-course dinner.
DAY FOUR – MOTSWIRI CAMP
Wake up before dawn to enjoy a light breakfast of coffee heated up on the fire, cereal and toast, before heading out into the Selinda Reserve on foot for an awe-inspiring walking safari led by an experienced and passionate trails guide. After a few hours out in the bush, examining animal tracks and signs, encountering wildlife, and enjoying photographic opportunities, or perhaps a swim in the fresh
water of the Spillway, guests return to camp for lunch. A Relaxed afternoon at camp is a welcome way to spend the day before embarking on an afternoon game drive with sundowners in the bush.
DAY FIVE – MOTSWIRI CAMP TO MAUN AIRPORT
Early morning wake up, followed by breakfast and your final game drive in Selinda, which will end at Motswiri Airstrip where you will connect with a scheduled flight to either Maun or Kasane.
