Day 1 & 2
Upon your arrival into Maun Airport you will be met and welcomed by a representative from The Booking Company, who will assist you with your connection onto light aircraft to Xugana Island Lodge, where you will stay for 2 nights.
Xugana Island Lodge is situated on a wooded island abutting the Xugana lagoon, in the heart of the Okavango Delta. The lodge accommodates 16 guests in 8 large raised reed and thatch chalets. Each chalet is twin bedded with en-suite facilities, showers, overhead fans and a private deck. There is an open boma and al fresco dining area facing out over the expanse of pristine water that makes up the permanent Delta. The lounge, bar and dining areas are set back under the Ebony and African Mangosteen tree canopy in open sided thatched areas. The swimming pool, located amongst the mature gardens, in the centre of the island is a perfect place to relax.
Mokoro trips in dugout canoes, combined with walking, to surrounding lagoons and islands in the concession give guests the chance to experience a classic Delta safari. Motor boat excursions through the reeded waterways are also enjoyed here. Xugana is a true "water land" paradise with no vehicles. Bird-watching opportunities are outstanding, and fishing for bream and tiger fish is also offered as an activity at the lodge.
Day 3 & 4
After an early morning activity and breakfast, you will connect with light aircraft for your flight to Chief’s Camp, where you will stay for 2 nights.
Chiefs Camp is situated in the Mombo Concession of the Moremi Game Reserve, known as the `predator capital` of Africa and is considered to have the finest game viewing in southern Africa. Recently, white rhino have been introduced to this concession, making it the only place in Botswana where these magnificent animals can be seen in their natural habitat.
Chiefs Camp comprises 12 luxury tents (24 beds), which are secluded, permanent luxury bush pavilions. Each unit offers en-suite bathrooms and private game viewing decks. The main lodge complex houses the dining area, bar, curio shop, library and reception area. This structure was built into the existing landscape, under a heavy canopy of mature Jackal berry, Sausage and Rain trees. The main deck area is split-level and offers expansive views over the floodplain to the north. The lower level of the deck houses the swimming pool. A range of spa treatments is offered in a poolside treatment sala (peak season only).
This area is also renowned for its large concentrations of plains-game, elephant and buffalo and offers good sightings of the predators. Professionally guided game-drives are conducted in open 4 X 4 vehicles in the early morning and late afternoon or as otherwise requested (subject to availability). Mokoro excursions are offered in high season only, subject to water levels.
After an early morning activity and breakfast, you will connect with light aircraft for your flight to Maun Airport where you will continue with the rest of your travel arrangements.
