At Maun Airport you will be met in the Arrivals Hall by a representative of Moremi Air, who will escort you to the light aircraft, for your charter flight into Moremi Crossing Camp, 20 minutes away, across the Okavango Delta.
The Okavango is an immense river that never meets the sea. Instead, its crystal clear waters spread across the Kalahari Desert, forming Africa's largest wetland wonder, before the formidable African sun swallows the last of its outstretched fingers. The Delta is an abundant oasis amid the vast plains and pans of the desert that covers most of Southern Africa. Its waterways are a mesh of meandering and intercepting channels, creating a haven for Africa's most celebrated wildlife.
Moremi Crossing is a new 16 tent camp set on a palm fringed island surrounded by the Moremi's game-rich seasonal floodplains and overlooking Chief's Island. Moremi Crossing combines luxury with simplicity, a 100% eco friendly development featuring the latest in solar and waste disposal technology.
The main building consists of a large open plan deck that has a spectacular view over the Boro River onto Chiefs Island. This half moon shaped area is built on different levels to give you the feeling of space. The dining room, bar and lounge are covered by a large thatched roof that hugs the tree line. Various small private lounge areas are created for comfort, privacy and spaciousness. Within the tree line you will find a nice shaded decked area that leads to the pool. The whole camp is shaded by magnificent Llala Palms, Giant Ebony, Mangosteen, Sausage and Giant Fig trees.
Offering a personalized wildlife experience through the provision of high quality guiding services and new custom made boats; Moremi Crossing ensures an outstanding Okavango Delta experience.
Lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, hippo, crocodile, plains of zebra and a variety of buck, including the red lechwe are the most conspicuous within the Delta's thriving eco-system. It is renowned for being a birdwatcher's paradise, with over 240 species of bird flourishing in the swampland environment, including the rare Pel's Fishing Owl and the endangered Wattled Crane.
Days 2 and 3
The main activities are mokoro (traditional dug out canoes) powerboat excursions, and guided game walks with experienced guides who have spent their lives accumulating knowledge and understanding of the complex ecosystem of the Okavango Delta. As they show you how to silently observe nature with minimal impact you will begin to realize the privilege and quiet excitement of being in one of those places that makes memories for you.
Chiefs Island where your activities take place offers one of the largest populations of African wildlife in the Delta area. Sightings may include lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and packs of wild dog running across the plains of the Delta. The concession is also home to hippo, crocodiles, plains zebra and a variety of buck, including the red lechwe.
In the evenings you can relax in the elevated main lodge, or lie in the swimming pool sipping your drink watching the majesty of the African sunset, whilst reflecting on your day with fellow guests.
After an early morning activity and brunch, your pilot will collect you from Moremi Crossing Camp airstrip, and will charter you to Sango Camp, 40 minutes away, across the Okavango Delta.
Sango Safari Camp nestles in the shade of huge trees, overlooking the Khwai River. Close to the traditional Khwai Village, and bordering the world famous Moremi Game Reserve, this small and intimate camp offers guests the perfect base from which to explore the wildlife and cultures of Botswana.
The Camp accommodates only 10 guests in 5 en-suite Meru tents, all themed like the classic tented safari camps of days gone by. The open-air bucket showers and the hand crafted furniture evoke the atmosphere of a luxury mobile safari camp, but with added luxuries.
Days 5 and 6
With the Khwai River forming a natural border between the Moremi Game Reserve and the Khwai Concession, animals travel freely between the reserves. Situated on the river overlooking the Moremi and with access to both these magnificent wildlife areas, Sango Safari Camp is focused on delivering an exceptional wildlife experience – allowing guests to take advantage of a host of wildlife activities including; open vehicle game drives in Moremi and the Khwai area, guided bush walk and night drives.
With a combination of permanent water, seasonal floodplains, open grasslands, riverine forests, and dry woodlands this incredibly rich habitat supports a diversity and abundance of mammals and birds rarely matched in northern Botswana. Sango Safari Camp invites you to share in this bounty. All activities are subject to seasonal availability and weather conditions. Walking and mokoro activities may be limited in the wet season due to dense vegetation.
After a morning activity and brunch, you will be chartered from Sango Camp back to Maun Airport, where you will check in for Air Botswana, flight BP211, departing Maun at 14h50, and arriving at Johannesburg International Airport at 16h30. (Air Botswana flight not included).
