3 Day Okavango Delta Safari

A great budget safari very different from your standard game drive. Departing from Maun and taking you deep into the Okavango Delta, this short getaway is a great taste of everything that the Delta has to offer. Traveling on dugout canoes (Mokoros), you will experience plenty of hippos and crocodiles along the waterways, plus the chance to catch other wildlife coming to the water to drink.

The Okavango Delta is a unique landscape and a must for any avid safari goer.

3 Day Okavango Delta Safari

Day 1

Maun – Okavango Delta

Our safari starts in the tourist town of Maun, we have a welcome briefing, before we head out on our next adventure. Depending on your itinerary we either have lunch at Sitatunga camp or a packed lunch on the way. The Okavango Delta is recently designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In the mid-afternoon we arrive at our mobile tented camp situated in the heart of the Okavango. Dependent on water levels we may travel via Mokoro (Traditional Dug-Out Canoe) or drive into the camp. On arrival you will meet the local staff who will be your host during your stay. A brief introduction to the camp will show your dome tent with twin beds and a bush en-suite bathroom – long drop toilet and a bucket shower. Relax in the mess tent with a cold drink or take a paddle in the lagoon in a canoe. The activities at the camp include Mokoro trails and guided walking.

We spend a relaxing 2 nights at this camp. Mobile Tented Camp with en-suite walk in tents, beds and linen.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 2

Okavango Delta

Most days at camp follow a similar pattern; the clatter of the Water Walla’s bucket lets you know your shower is ready. Up before the sun, you set out on foot, to explore the area once again in search of game. Meet other guests at the mess for breakfast then take a Mokoro to explore further. Take time to catch up on your reading or view the birdlife from the mess tent.

Lunch is normally served at around 13h00. After lunch, time is yours to relax or have a go at poling the mokoro’s or ask the guides to find a swim spot for you before the afternoon outing.

At about 3 pm you will be offered afternoon tea, before the activities commence. Return to camp in the late afternoon for a sundowner while your dinner is being prepared. The clatter of the water bucket lets you know your shower is getting ready.

During the evening your hosts can be encouraged to share stories around the fire of their lives and lands. Be prepared if your Botswana hosts put on a song for you they will be expect one in return! As the evening draws to a close lay back and listen to the music of life – the sounds of the African bush!
