During and shortly after good summer rains (September to January), the flat grasslands of the reserve’s northern reaches teem with wildlife, which gather at the best grazing areas. These include springbok and gemsbok, as well as wildebeest, hartebeest, eland and giraffe. At other times of the year, when the animals are more sparsely distributed, the experience of travelling through truly untouched wilderness, of seemingly unending dimensions, is amazing. We will arrive at camp to have lunch and enjoy an afternoon siesta. We will head out for an evening game drive & sunset within the Deception Valley. Upon return to the camp, you will be treated to a hot camp shower before proceeding to dinner around a campfire. You will then retreat to your 3.2 x 3.2m tent equipped with a stretcher bed, a veranda and an attached bathroom with flush-able toilet, shower and sink.

A very nice experience! The guide came at the agreed time. Head to the banks of the Okavango via a very pleasant bush path. Then a magnificent moroko ride among hippos and crocodiles followed by a short hike among elephants, red lechwe and waterbuck. The day ended in style with a 2.5 hour safari in the okavango plains surrounded by elephants, giraffes, wildebeest, hippos, gazelles, red lechwe, waterbuck... in short, just fun. Thanks again.

Phillip, my mokoro poler was excellent. He was knowledgeable about the delta and its ecosystem. We did a lengthy bush walk, where because of Phillip’s knowledge and expertise, I was fortunate enough to see wildebeest, impalas, hippopotamus, and a number of bird species. Thank you for a fantastic experience Phillip!

Great trip through the delta, on the way there we met 5 cheetahs! That doesn't happen often! Greg knew the right spots. Mike our pooler knew exactly where the elephants walked in the delta! I think we saw more than 100 of them. Hippos and crocodiles! Beautiful day!

Pick up was on time. The guide on the mokoro was super friendly and experienced.

I was fascinated and the staff treated me wonderfully. congratulations!!!!
