Day 1:
Arrive at Maun Airport, transfer to your place of accommodation.

Day 2:  
Pick up from your place of accommodation. Depart for a 4 day inner-delta boat trip from "The Old Bridge" Maun 10 am on day one by motor-boat first on the Thamalakane river then up the Boro river. After the first 45 minutes passing through a rural setting we then cross the "Buffalo fence" and enter the Okavango Delta proper.  
The next 4 hours is spent game and bird watching while navigating the reed channels of the southern Okavango on our way up to Chiefs Island. A light lunch of cold meats and salads will be served en-route. We arrive at our camp at Nxaraga lagoon (19*33'42.21"S 23*12'23.32"E) at around 3pm, settle in and take a rest in the shade for a couple of hours. At around 5pm depart on foot with a guide for a short 1 hour game walk around Nxaraga Island to stretch your legs.  
Arrive back before sunset which we enjoy with hippos from the boat on the middle of Nxaraga lagoon. Arrive back shortly before dark to a warmed bucket shower and a hearty campfire cooked dinner. Retire at your leasure to your tent to fall asleep to the sounds of the Okavango.  

Day 3:
Wake up call at 5:30am for those wanting to go on an early morning walk, coffee/tea and rusks will be served. At around 6am depart on foot with a guide for a three hours.  Other than plains game there is a very real chance to spot the elusive leopard and bushbuck in the forests on the fringes of Nxaraga Island. Arrive back from your game walk to a full cooked brunch.  Early afternoon, go out on the boat for a quick splash at a sand bank or try a little fishing outside the park. Back in camp have tea and snacks and go for a short late afternoon walk. Arrive back shortly before dark to a warmed bucket shower and a hearty campfire cooked dinner.  

Day 4:
Wake up at your leisure to have a full cooked breakfast and a relaxing morning in camp Depart from Nxaraga at around midday, stop for a quick splash at a shallow sandbank to cool off. Continue upstream for 2 hours game viewing on the way. On this part of the river there is a good chance to find elephants playing in the river to ease the midday heat. We will serve a light lunch en-route. Arrive at Xaxaba campsite (19*31'55.07"S 23*04'36.99"E) at around 3pm, settle in and relax for a couple of hours. This campsite is one of the few places that Chiefs Island actually borders on the mainstream of the Boro River so the game walking possibilities are endless. At around 5 pm depart on foot for a one and a half hour game walk. Arrive back shortly before dark to a warmed bucket shower and a hearty campfire cooked dinner. Retire at your leisure to your tent to fall asleep to the sounds of the Okavango and most probably lions on Chiefs Island.

Day 5:   
Wakeup call at 6:00am. Coffee/tea and rusks will be served for those wanting something before the mokoro trip. 7am depart for a short boat ride to Xaxaba village to meet your mokoro polers. Depart with guides in a Mokoro (traditional canoes) for a 3 hour cruise and game walk alongside channels that are not navigable by motorboats.
