We make our way to Maun, gateway to the Okavango Delta. We embark on our exploration of the Okavango Delta, one of Africa’s great wilderness areas. There you will become an expert at ‘poling’ your mokoro (a dugout canoe) through the waterways. Heading North we visit Chobe National Park for a game viewing boat cruise. We arrive in Victoria Falls where the available activities are limitless. Board the truck for your two day transit to Johannesburg and the start of your Kruger tour.

Day 4 - Okavango Delta

Route: Maun – Okavango Delta – Maun

The most rewarding and enjoyable way to explore and experience the beauty and serenity of this intricate system of lily covered channels and lagoons, is by mokoro. Heading out early, we will be transferred by safari vehicle to the poling station (approximately 1 hour transfer) where we will meet the polers who will be escorting us into the Delta. The polers will steer us through the serene area of narrow, reed lined channels which open out onto beautiful lagoons. Reaching one of the many islands, a nature walk may be taken with your poler. After the walk, we return by mokoro through the channels back to the mooring station. While the mokoro trail is not primarily a game viewing activity, a variety of game may be encountered in this pristine wilderness area including elephant, giraffe, kudu, impala and zebra. Those guests who have pre-purchased the 2-night package – will be flown into the Delta this morning and will re-join the group on the morning of day 6. Please speak to your consultant for a copy of the programme for your Okavango Delta Excursion.
