This morning you will fly from either Kasane or Maun across a swathe of the Kalahari Desert to the Okavango Delta. Note - Return scenic light aircraft flights Kasane or Maun / Delta not included in the trip cost - ask us for costs, which are subject to change and availability. If you are staying at Victoria Falls you can arrange a road transfer from your Victoria Falls accommodation to Kasane airport in Botswana (at an additional cost). Flying in a small plane (normally a 6 seat Cessna) it’s a fantastic opportunity to put this natural wonder into perspective. Your aerial view over this incomparable wilderness will leave you in awe and eager to begin exploring all it has to offer from the ground! Approximate flight times to the Delta: Kasane (1 hour 45 minutes), Maun (25 minutes).
Upon arrival at the Moremi Crossing airstrip you are literally on the doorstep of Gunns Camp or a five minute boat transfer (included) to Moremi Crossing. Both lodges are superbly appointed along the river and interlacing waterways with a spectacular open air dining area where it is not uncommon to watch elephants, hippos and birds from the deck. Spacious tented camps will be your home for the following nights all fitted with beautiful furnishings, attached en suite and an open air shower. In the evening you’ll fall to sleep with the sounds of the Delta all around you – an unforgettable experience!
You will be at one with nature at these camps as there is no internet connection or telephone reception, the food is scrumptious and there is an open bar 24 hours. All meals and most beverages included (except for premium imported wines, champagnes and spirits).
After 3pm you’ll enjoy your first scheduled activity (all scheduled activities are included) on board a small motorised boat where we explore the outer water ways. Expect to see elephant, buffalo, crocodile and hippos but many other wildlife encounters are also possible. A sundowner drink and nibbles are carried on board so that you may stop somewhere special to watch one of the Okavango’s famous sunsets. Overnight: Moremi Crossing or similar.
