4 Days 3 Nights Botswana Classic Safari (Maun, Khwai, Maun) - 4 Days

Maun is a town on the Thamalakane River in northern Botswana. It’s the jumping-off point for the vast inland Okavango Delta, which becomes a lush wildlife habitat during the seasonal floods. In the delta, safari camps dot the Moremi Game Reserve, which is home to hippos, lions and rhinos. In the town, the Nhabe Museum features local art, plus history and culture exhibits about the surrounding Ngamiland region

Day 1
Day 1: Maun to - Khwai & Moremi Area

This Khwai & Okavango Delta begins in Maun, the travel hub for exploring the Okavango Delta. Leaving the bustling town of Maun we make our way to Khwai village, about three and a half hours drive away. Arriving at Khwai village, we head to the campsite, our comfortable base for the next three nights. Khwai village is located on the fringes of the famous Moremi Game Reserve, the only official reserve in the Okavango Delta. We spend two days exploring this wild part of Botswana, visiting the traditional village and both the community-run Khwai Wildlife Concession and the prestigious Moremi Game Reserve, covering the eastern part of the pristine delta ecosystem.

Day 2
Day 2 & 3: Khwai Concession & Moremi Game Reserve

On days two and three we wake at sunrise, have an early breakfast and set off on our morning adventure. We return to the campsite for lunch at about midday, followed by free time to rest and relax. At about 15h30 or 16h00 (depending on the season) we embark on our afternoon activity, returning in time for a tasty dinner prepared on the campfire. Activities include three-hour game drives in the Khwai Concession and in the Moremi Game Reserve, full day game drives in Khwai Concession and/or Moremi Game Reserve (subject to availability on arrival) and night drives. Then there are mokoro trips, lasting about two and a half hours, and cultural excursions that take about two hours.

Game viewing takes place in Moremi Game Reserve, one of Southern Africa’s finest wildlife reserves, and the top-notch Khwai Concession Area of Botswana. The guest house borders on both wilderness areas, which are home to an impressive diversity of animals, plants and birds. There are plenty of large mammals to be seen in the area, including elephants, buffalos and predators such as lions, wild dogs and leopards. The wild animals move freely between Moremi and Khwai, which is a lesser-known wildlife gem. Exploring the range of habitats, from indigenous forests to open floodplains, we are sure to encounter all kinds of wildlife, other creatures and birds.

Our days are spent embarking on game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles and taking mokoro trips along the delta channels with local guides. Mekoros are the traditional style canoes used to navigate the watery Okavango Delta. Gliding on the tranquil waterways and lagoons in the untamed African bush, you can sit back and take in the wild environment, looking out for wildlife and birds as your guide stands in the back of your mokoro poling the vessel along.

If conditions allow then we venture out on nature walks with the experienced local guides. Walking in the bush is one of the best ways to get a real sense of the natural habitat and see its creatures and plants up close. Heading into the bush on foot is also a thrilling experience as we may encounter large animals at any moment!
