Itinerary

1

Day One

Depart from Maun 08am on day one by motor boat, first on the Thamalakane river then up the Boro river.

After the first 45 minutes passing through a rural area we then cross the “Buffalo fence” and enter the wildlife area of Okavango Delta.

The next few hours is spent game and bird watching while navigating the reed channels of the southern Okavango on our way up to Chiefs island.

A light lunch of cold meats and salads will be served en-route.
We arrive at our camp at Nxaraga lagoon (19*33’42.21″S 23*12’23.32″E) at around 3pm, settle in and take a rest in the shade for a couple of hours.

At around 5pm depart on foot with a guide for a short 1 hour game walk around Nxaraga island to stretch your legs. Arrive back before sunset which we enjoy with hippos from the boat on the middle of Nxaraga lagoon.

Arrive back shortly before dark to a warmed bucket shower and a hearty campfire cooked dinner.

Retire at your leisure to your tent to fall asleep to the sounds of the Okavango.

DAY TWO

Wake up call at 5:30am for anyone wanting to go on an early morning walk.

Coffee/tea and rusks will be served for a little sustenance before the walk.
Depart on foot at 6am with a guide for a three hour game walk.

Other than plains game there is a very real chance to spot the elusive leopard and bushbuck in the forests on the fringes of Nxaraga island.

Arrive back from your game walk to a full English breakfast.
Depart from Nxaraga at around midday, stop for a quick splash in the shallows near a sandbank to cool off.

Continue upstream for a couple of hours game viewing on the way. On this stretch of the river there is a good chance to find elephants playing in the river to ease the midday heat. A light snack lunch will be served en-route.

Arrive at Xaxaba campsite ( 19*31’55.07″S 23*04’36.99″E ) at around 3pm, settle in and relax for a couple of hours.

This campsite is one of the few places that Chiefs island actually borders on the mainstream of the Boro river even at high water so the gamewalking possibilities are endless.

At around 5 pm depart on foot for a one and a half hour game walk.
Arrive back shortly before dark to a warmed bucket shower and a hearty campfire cooked dinner.

Retire at your leisure to your tent to fall asleep to the sounds of the Okavango, most probably including lions on Chiefs island.

Day 3

Wake up call at 6:00am, coffee/tea and rusks will be served for anyone wanting something small before the mokoro trip.

7am depart for a short boat ride to Xaxaba village to meet your mokoro polers.

Depart with guides in a Mekoro (traditional canoes) for 3 hours cruising down uncharted side channels that are not navigable by motorboats and walking on less accessible islands.

Arrive back at around 11am to a full cooked brunch.
Leave at around 1 pm to go upstream past Jugu-jugu island to spend the afternoon game and bird viewing from the boat.

This is one of the most spectacular settings that the Okavango delta has to offer. The wide open plains of this area is home to a large number of red lechwe (a semi aquatic antelope), lots of Crocodiles and birds.

Arrive back shortly before dark to a warmed bucket shower and a hearty campfire cooked dinner. Retire at your leisure to your tent.

Day 4
