7 Days / 6 Nights

Price from$8,098

Indulge in two of Botswana's most contrasting destinations, each one offering a unique experience in pristine wilderness. Spend time in the Okavango Delta where you can explore the intricate water canals by mekoro, replenished by cyclical rainfalls, or traverse the golden grasslands in search of the Big Five, retreating to the contemporary comfort of your suite by night. From there continue on to enjoy time in the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park which is home to the second largest migration of mammals on the continent where you will enjoy the extraordinary landscapes, the wildlife and the Bushman of the Pans.

Day 1: Maun > Okavango Delta Depart from Maun in your light aircraft flight into the Okavango Delta where you will spend the next three nights at your chosen lodge / camp on the banks of the waterways.

At Sable Alley activities include day games drives in the Khwai concession and the Moremi Game Reserve whilst at Xudum Lodge enjoy guided bush walks in the private concession along with optional helicopter & horse back riding safaris.

Day 4: Okavango Delta > Makgadikgadi Pans / Kalahari Today leave the waterways behind and take a short flight into the Makgadikgadi Pans where you will spend the next nights enjoying the vast landscapes at either Camp Kalahari or Jacks Camp. Camp Kalahari is tucked away on Brown Hyena Island, amongst the dappled shade of acacia and mokolwane palms where you can take in the stark beauty of the Kalahari region from the comfort of your Meru-style tent.

The charming Jack's Camp is surrounded by the vast and pristine landscapes of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. Reminiscent of a traditional East African, 1940s safari camp, this spectacular retreat offers roomy and stylish canvas tents all overlooking the awe-inspiring landscapes of the Kalahari.
