Botswana and Delta Camping Botswana Kalahari and Delta camping is a 15 day small group participation mobile camping safari, moving between camp sites in the game reserves. A true exploration of Botswana We visit the awe inspiring Central Kalahari, the famous Okavango Delta, the game rich Nxai Pan, the vastness of the Makgadikgadi Pans, the elephant herds of Chobe and finish off with one of the natural wonder of the world – Victoria Falls! We start in Johannesburg and end in Livingstone, Zambia.

Day 1 Johannesburg-Tuli Block (Santhata Camp)

On arrival you will be met and take a scheduled flight to Polokwane Airport and transferred to Tuli Block (Santhata Camp) on a private vehicle, where you will be able to arrive early for your lunch and afternoon game drive.

Day 2: Tuli Block-Santhata Camp to Khama Rhino Sanctuary

An early start as we depart Tuli Block, Santhata Camp at 06:30am and leave for Serowe to Khama Rhino Sanctuary. The Khama Rhino Sanctuary is a 4300 hectare community based wildlife reserve and is an integral part of the conservation and re-introduction of the white rhino to Botswana. We arrive in the late afternoon, set up camp and enjoy a game drive in search of rhino, zebra and wildebeest. Our evening is enjoyed around a campfire and we fall asleep to the sounds of the African wilderness.

Day 3,4,5, Central Kalahari

 

The Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR) is one of the largest game reserves in the world (52,800 square kilometres). Made famous by Mark and Delia Owen in the book Cry of the Kalahari, its remoteness, unforgiving climate and harsh terrain have kept it pristine and untamed. This reserve is characterised by vast open plains, saltpans and ancient riverbeds. During the summer months when the rains fall, the Kalahari grasslands turn green and lush and the good grazing attracts large herds of zebra, wildebeest, springbok and gemsbok (oryx). Following the herds we hope to find the Kalahari lions. We use 4WD vehicles to visit the northern portion of the reserve and camp wild for 3 nights.

Day 6 Maun

 

Our next stop is Maun the gateway to the Okavango Delta. Here we restock on provisions and enjoy a swim in the pool, a cool drink in the bar and a restaurant meal (own expense). There is opportunity to take a light aircraft flight over the Okavango in the late afternoon (own expense).

Day 7 - 8 Okavango Delta

 

We venture by 4WD into the vast wilderness of the Okavango Delta where we meet our local community guides. Relax as your poler expertly guides your mokoro (dugout) through the winding channels of the delta. Camp is set up on the islands under a towering canopy of trees. We set out on foot for morning and evening game walks with local guides. During the heat of the day, time is spent relaxing in camp or swimming in the clear delta waters. Birdlife in the Okavango during the summer months is spectacular with all of the summer migrants returning to this water wonderland.

Day 9 - 10 Nxai Pan

 

By 4WD open vehicle we return to the “poling station” and continue to the vast fossil lake beds which form the unique and beautiful Nxai Pan national park. These pans surrounded by baobab and umbrella thorn trees are covered with short nutritious grass that attracts the wildlife. One of a few parks that is best in rainy season, we spend the next two days on game drives hoping to spot large herds of springbok, gemsbok and zebra. The seven giant trees that form the famous Baines Baobabs are a highlight of the visit.

Day 11 Makgadikgadi Pans

 

Camping wild on the flat Makgadikgadi pans is an experience you’ll never forget. After watching the sunset over the pans, the evening is spent enjoying wide open spaces and the canopy of stars.

Day 12 Chobe National Park

Chobe National Park is famous for large herds of elephants. We set up camp in Chobe and enjoy afternoon and morning game drives.

Day 13 - 14 Victoria Falls / Livingstone

 

After a guided walk mid- morning we embark for a cruise on the Chobe River. This is a brilliant wildlife experience where we get close to hippopotamus, crocodiles and elephants. Keep an eye out for the endemic Chobe Puku. We then cross the border into Zambia at the Kazangula Ferry. Our afternoon is spent exploring the Mosi au Thunya national park and enjoying the views as the mighty Zambezi plunges 100m over the Victoria Falls. The following day is free to enjoy the range of adventure activities including river rafting, bungee jumping and the Flight of Angels over the falls (own expense). We sample the local cuisine at a variety of restaurants in the evening (own expense).
