3. Maun: 2 Nights or 1 Night Okavango Delta Camping Trip
Our safari will depart from Maun at 0700hrs for a one hour boat ride to the mokoro station from where we will board our mokoro for a leisurely trip to our campsite where we will have lunch and enjoy a hard earned riverside siesta moment. It is truly a wilderness and a great soothing experience. You will get to learn a lot about this amazing ecosystem called the Okavango Delta, a UNESCO heritage site. Sunrise and sunset in this part of the world are sights to behold.
We will then embark on a 2 hour late afternoon nature walk. Upon return to the camp, you will be treated to a hot camp shower before proceeding to dinner around a campfire. For us, campfire forms a critical part of the experience. We will share our heritage with you and you will share yours with us. A telescope will enhance your experience of the night under the stars. You will then retreat to your tent equipped with a stretcher bed, a veranda and an attached bathroom with flush-able toilet, shower and sink.
Rise and shine and say hello to a fresh morning over coffee, tea and rusks! We will head out for a 3 hour early morning nature walk and come up close and intimate with nature. This is a highly recommended experience to start your day by connecting with nature. It is believed that this sets the tone for the rest of your day as you become one with the environment. Upon return at around 10am you will be treated to a filling brunch. You will then relax and enjoy siesta moment in the peaceful Delta. Once you have had a good rest we will head out for a 3 hour mokoro trip arriving back in camp just before sunset. 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…
Upon arrival, you will treated to a hot shower in the privacy of your en-suite tent and proceed to enjoy your campfire dinner. By now you and your guide will be the best of friends after 2 days of good bonding.
Rise and shine to say goodbye to the most amazing landscapes with great memories to carry away. But you are not done yet, as we will once more embark on a morning nature walk for 3 hours, depending on your fatigue levels. Upon return at around 10am, you will have your last brunch before relaxing in the camp. There might be an opportunity to take a dip in the waters, safety permitting. At this time you will be just one but part of the ecosystem.
After such a once in a life time experience, we will head back to the mokoro station, on our mokoro as we consolidate our delta experience, where your engine powered boat will pick you up for a trip to Audi Camp and onward transfer to your hotel.
