The non-participatory boat adventure takes you to the heart of the Okavango Delta where you will experience a combination of mokoro, game and amazing bird species viewing, breath taking landscapes, tranquil sunsets, and amazing star gazing, all in all summed up in one word: unforgettable! Our Professional Guide will share his in-depth knowledge about birds during the tour. We will set up camp on strategically located Okavango Delta islands, a big game area with elephants, buffalo, kudu, elephant, giraffe, and now rhinos.
Day 1: Enter The Okavango DeltaYou'll be collected from the airport (or hotel). We will set off for our safari at 0700hrs with an easy cruise upstream to Chief’s Island, a journey that will be spent viewing game and amazing species of birds while navigating the reed channels of the southern Okavango.Our expected time of arrival is 3pm which should give us enough time to rest and stretch our legs. Following your rest a, we will set off for a relaxing sunset boat ride which we will enjoy alongside hippos in the middle of Nxaraga lagoon. We will then head to camp where you will be treated to a warmed shower and dinner before you move to the campfire to relax. Campfire has been pivotal in transfer of knowledge and values from one generation to the other for the first settlers of Botswana, the San people. Thus we will share with you our heritage stories around "xaa", the San people's name for fire. Day 2: Visit XaxabaWe will depart Nxaraga at around mid morning, for an upstream cruise for a couple of hours of delta game and bird viewing. A light snack lunch will be served along the way. We will take it easy until we get to Xaxaba around mid afternoon in time for a siesta moment of relaxation. We will then head back to camp to reflect on our day's expedition. Day 3: Mokoro ExperienceMokoro brings you close to arguably Africa’s most pristine game land. At first you may be unsettled about just how close you are to the wild, until you realise that you have just become a part of the environment, this is where you will get into such a relaxed mode and take it all in. Some guests have meditated along the cruise, some have fallen asleep, while some have been perplexed about the entire experience. Your story is yet to be told…Day 4: Return TripWe are not yet done. You will be gently woken up at 5:30am to go on an early morning walk after Coffee/tea and rusks. The walk departs just after sunrise to smell the early morning air and once again connect with nature as the day begins. Upon return , you will be treated to full breakfast before heading back at 10am for a leisurely 7 hour boat trip back to Audi Camp with a light lunch served along the journey.
