Itinerary

Day 1 - Maun and Okavango Delta+

On arrival in Maun your will board your charter flight to Kadizora. Once you arrive you can do a Game Drive in an open safari vehicle, which allows you to explore some of the varied vegetation this World Heritage site has to offer. Drive through semi-desert sands, dense Mopani woodlands and marshy floodplains. The area is home to a vast species of game as well as countless resident and migratory birds. Birdwatching is particularly favourable when the Delta waters arrive in February and dry up in late September. Night drives provide for some of the most dramatic and unusual game viewing. The advantage of a night drive is that they provide access to nocturnal species rarely seen during the day. Bush Babies, Chameleon’s, Aardvarks and Leopard are more active after dark. A night drive Safari has a unique and exciting atmosphere as nocturnal animals are bolder than during the day.

Day 2 - Kadizora Camp (B,L,D)+

Kadizora Camp is fortunate to have traditional mokoros (dug-out canoes) which glide through the Delta water channels and provide an opportunity to view the aquatic wildlife from a close vantage point. The crystal, clear waters are filtered by large papyrus reed beds and is clean enough to drink. From the safety of a motor boat you can see crocodiles basking in the sun and pods of hippo wallowing in the lagoon. Your skipper will navigate the waters to ensure the best bird sightings possible. In the fishing season you can go out in the boat and try your hand at fishing with spinners – typically you may catch pike, barbel and bream. The Camp cooks will fillet your bream catch on your return and prepare it for your next meal! On a bush walk, one would have the opportunity to observe the smaller things, such as fauna and flora, that one would not see on a game drive. Our knowledgeable guides will talk to you about animals tracks, bush skills and natural remedies used by the locals. Trips into the Gunotsuga community can be arranged. See a truly traditional village and learn about life in rural Botswana.

Day 3 - Kadizora Camp (B,L,D)+

This is the only area in the Okavango Delta to offer hot air ballooning. Your Hot Air Balloon Safari begins with an early morning departure from Kadizora Camp, driving through the floodplains to the balloon launch site. On this pre-dawn safari, you may be fortunate enough to see sightings of nocturnal wildlife. On arrival at the launch site, you will be served tea or coffee, while the balloon is being rigged and inflated ready for your flight. After a welcome greeting by the pilot, you are ready for take-off. As the balloon is fired up, drift away across the flood plains, watch the sunrise and the animals waking to begin their day. Upon landing, celebrate your flight with champagne and snacks and receive your first flight certificate from the pilot before heading back to camp. Hot air ballooning is only available on request during the peak season for April – September.

Day 4 - Ngoma Safari Lodge (B,L,D)+
