Take the plunge into the hallowed wildernesses of the Okavango Delta and the Linyanti Marsh in Botswana.
Guests are met and welcomed at any location of their choice in either Johannesburg or Pretoria from where they are transferred to O R Tambo International Airport for a flight to Maun. In Maun, a light charter awaits to fly guests into the heart of the Okavango Delta and the luxurious Mombo Camp.
The Okavango River, which rises in the highlands of Angola, never reaches the sea. Instead, its mighty waters empty into the sands of the Kalahari and into a vast basin known as the Okavango Delta. Here the thirst land of the south meets a blue-green wilderness of crystal-clear fresh water, with emerald green reed beds and islands dotted with towering old-growth trees. The late afternoon is devoted to your first Okavango Delta safari conducted by an experienced ranger and tracker, in an area where the wilderness and the species that grace it have largely survived untouched by time and humanity. Guests spend three nights at Mombo Camp, and two game activities are conducted daily by their experienced rangers and trackers.
A last morning safari experience at Mombo is followed by a short flight to Kings Pool, which is situated in the 125 000 ha Linyanti Reserve to the north of the Okavango Delta. The Linyanti Swamp, fed by the Kwando River, is the heart of this wildlife refuge and attracts elephants by the thousands.
Guests spend three nights at Kings Pool with two game activities conducted daily by their experienced rangers and trackers, who are also based at the lodge. The Linyanti safari area is not as well-known as the Okavango, but nevertheless offers exceptional game viewing in one of Africa's truly wild places.
A last morning game drive in Linyanti is followed by breakfast, after which guests fly first to Maun and from there onward to Johannesburg. Guests are met on arrival at O R Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and are transferred to any location of their choice in either Johannesburg or Pretoria, after a memorable Okavango Delta and Linyanti safari experience in Botswana.
