Days 1-2: Moremi Crossing, Okavango Delta, Botswana.
Upon guests arrival into Maun Airport, they will be met by our representative. Afterwards they will be transferred to Moremi Crossing by light aircraft, where they will stay for 2 nights. Moremi Crossing is located on an Island called Ntswi near the most southern part of Chief’s Island. As you fly over the Delta you can see the intricate twisting and turning of the waterways and the ever-changing colours where dry land meets water. The channels around Moremi Crossing offer far reaching vistas of the Moremi floodplain, grasslands and marginal woodlands interspersed with Mokolwane palm islands.

Moremi Crossings provides comfortable accommodation in 16 vintage en-suite safari tents, each with its own private wooden deck. The main area consists of a large open plan split level deck that offers spectacular views over the Boro River onto Chiefs Island. The dining room, bar and lounge are covered by a large thatched roof with the decked areas leading out to the pool. The whole camp is shaded by magnificent palms, giant ebony, mangosteen, sausage and giant fig trees. The camp has 24hr solar powered electricity/ lightning. Moremi Crossing is a water based camp and therefore access to the camp from the airstrip is either by mokoro or moroboat. Activities on offer include mokoro excursions, guided walks and water levels permitting sunset cruises by motorboat. All these activities give the guests the chance to experience the Okavango Delta and its game from a very different slower and closer perspective.

Days 3-4: Khwai Tented Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana.
After an early morning activity and breakfast (time permitting), guests will be transferred to Khwai Tented Camp by light aircraft, where they will stay for 2 nights.

The magnificent Khwai River is the hub for some of the most outstanding wildlife viewing both on the Moremi and in the Khwai area. Khwai Tented Camp is a small 8 bedded tented camp situated along this life supporting river. It is a luxury semi permanent camp in Hemingway style, with en-suite bathroom and flushing toilette. The style of the camp is in the East African Meru tentage, as the original explorers moved through the African wilderness.
