This flying safari offers you wonderful accommodation, but in a more affordable way with included intercamp flights in Botswana.  The trip will visit two camps, each with unique experiences. Venture to Nokanyana Camp for four nights where the focus is on safari and wildlife. Then it’s off to Mopiri Camp for three nights, a wonderful water experience in the Okavango Delta.

Day 1 - 4: Khwai River

You are met on arrival at Maun airport and assisted for your first light aircraft flight to Nokanyana Camp. The light aircraft flight gives you a great bird’s eye view of the Botswana landscapes.  Your guide will be waiting for you at the airstrip and transfer you to Nokanyana Camp for the next four nights.

 

You’ll find Nokanyana’s 10 luxury tents on the bank of the Khwai River, nestled in the lush bush overlooking a large flood plain frequented by Africa’s wildlife, so you can watch elephants, antelope and giraffe from your room. The rooms all have wonderful panoramic views of the surrounding bush. The tents are spacious, light and airy with king-size beds and large private decks. All have en-suite bathrooms with double sinks and two large rain showers: one inside and one outside. The bathrooms feature contemporary layouts with views of the bush across the room (the toilet and shower are in separate private sections), so you’ll never miss a moment of the continuously changing landscape.

 

Extending from the Okavango River, the Khwai River forms part of the northern border of the Moremi Game Reserve. Nokanyana overlooks the spot where the Khwai and Mababe Rivers join, creating a beautiful environment in which to relax and watch the wildlife pass by. Nokanyana offers some of the best game viewing in the world — directly from the rooms and the guest facilities ­– and exceptional game drive opportunities in the area. Days can be spent exploring the area, or simply relaxing and waiting for the wildlife to come by.Over the next four days enjoy twice daily safari activities, or opt for a full day game drive in the company of trained and skilled wildlife guides.

 

Game Drives
Discover the delights of the Khwai Reserve with your guide in open 4×4 vehicles exploring the bush in the morning, afternoon and evening, or opt for a full day drive with a hearty bush brunch en route. The Khwai River is often the only water source year round for species that rely on it, like elephants ­– as well as aquatic and semi-aquatic antelope such as red lechwe, water and reed buck. Giraffe, kudu and zebra can often be seen ­– as well as their predators! Botswana has the largest African wild dog population on earth and it is not unusual to see one or two packs denning. Head north from the end of the Khwai River and you’ll reach the Mababe depression – another incredibly rewarding area to explore.

 

Bush Walks
The bush holds many secrets if you know how and where to look. Your guide will point out tracks and signs of animals, insects, birds, trees and many other fascinating aspects of this unique environment. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with African nature.

Day 5 - 7: Okavango Delta

After a morning game drive and breakfast you will be escorted back to the Khwai airstrip for your flight to Mopiri Camp in the Okavango Delta.  On arrival you will be met and taken to Mopiri Camp for the next three nights.

 

On the western bank of the vast and idyllic Weboro Lagoon, nestled between palm trees and under large shady figs, Mopiri’s 10 luxury rooms all have panoramic views of the Okavango Delta. Long winding boardwalks connect the suites with the main area; the pool and the jetty give you an opportunity to explore the surroundings from an elevated position. The luxury rooms are spacious, light and airy with king-size beds and large private decks. All have en-suite bathrooms with double sinks and large rain showers. The bathrooms are connected to the bedrooms via a short corridor, making the most of the wonderful views across the lagoon.

 

Mopiri is surrounded by crystal clear Delta water on all sides; depending when you stay, you may be able to see hippopotamus, elephants and Sitatunga in their natural habitat. At Mopiri you set your own pace. You may choose to spend your days exploring the Okavango Delta on one of the many activities available, or simply kicking back and enjoying the tranquil surroundings of island life.

 

Barge Cruising
Enjoy a sundowner or a spot of fishing aboard our double storey barge “Osprey”. This is the perfect way to start or end your stay, or simply to relax on the idyllic water and really take in your stunning surroundings.

Speedboats

Head out on a boat into the unknown of the Okavango Delta and you’ll enjoy the thrill of exploring a genuine wilderness. Explore hidden channels, find the best fishing spots and view hippos and even crocodiles from the water. Our knowledgeable guide will also tell you all about the incredible ecosystem that is so important to us.

 

Fly Camping
Spend the night camping out under the stars on a secluded island, accompanied by an expert team from Mopiri who will set up the camp from scratch. Your trusty barman will ensure that your sundowner is on hand and a full three-course meal will be prepared over the coals. This magical experience gives you a wonderful opportunity to see wildlife close-up and to experience all the activities on offer. Your room will be ready and waiting for you on your return to Mopiri the next day. (Please note that this activity must be booked in advance as fly camps are set up prior to your arrival).

 

Fishing
Mopiri is a prime destination for lure fishing. Tiger fish are indigenous to the area and as one of the world’s most dramatic freshwater game fish this is a uniquely thrilling angling opportunity for both experienced and novice fishermen. Up to eight other species can also be caught on line, creating some great fishermen’s tales to tell back home! Please note that fishing is prohibited in January and February throughout Botswana when fish are breeding.

Departure Day

Enjoy a last morning free for a leisurely breakfast before being transferred to the airstrip for your flight back to Maun.
