Day 2: Early morning coffee or tea is served with rusks, cereals, fruit and yogurt before departing for a game walk in our island.

Please feel free if you’d prefer to sleep-in and enjoy a leisurely morning in camp. A cooked breakfast will be served after your game walk. Board boats for your journey to our next camp in one of the most spectacular areas of the Okavango Delta. In this area the Delta opens up with vast landscapes and more opportunities of encountering game.

Even though vast distances are covered through the Okavango Delta, much time is spent drifting while game watching, birding, photography or just relaxing onboard.

From time to time we do stop off on islands along the way to stretch our legs and explore them on foot. Lunch will be served on one of the many islands along the way.

After lunch we continue on our journey to our next camp arriving at sunset. Hot showers will be ready waiting for you before pre-dinner drinks around the camp fire.

A three course sit down dinner is served with fine South African wines.

The evening is spent around the camp fire gazing at the stars reminiscing about the day’s experiences in the Delta.

Day 3: After our morning activities, we board our boats to explore the diversity of the Okavango Delta while game viewing, birding or just relax and enjoy the tranquility of the Okavango Delta.

Lunch will be served back at camp before retiring for an early afternoon siesta or just relaxing in camp. Later on we continue on our journey of exploration by boat returning to camp after sunset.

A three course sit down dinner is served with fine South African wines.

Day 4: After our morning activities, we depart on a day trip up the Delta to enjoy the diversity of the upper reaches of the Okavango Delta which offers a very different experience from the previous days.

Lunch will be served on one of the many islands along the way.

Return to camp after a sun downer drink on the river.

A three course sit down dinner is served with fine South African wines.

Day 5: After our morning activities we board the boats for our last day in the Delta drifting downstream before making our way back to Maun.

Relax and enjoy the last but very scenic day on the Okavango Delta. Lunch will be served on one of the many islands along the way. Arrive in Maun for your onward journey and airport transfer if required.

NB. Please note that the above itinerary is flexible to suit our guest’s needs and is a rough guide of the daily activities on the Delta.

It may be altered on safari depending on what we encounter along the way and game sightings. Most of our safaris include a two or three night stay at some of the camps. This allows plenty of time to explore the surrounding area.

A certain amount of physical agility is required as you will need to board and disembark boats in natural wetland areas, however we will assist you if necessary.

A tented safari is the classic, nostalgic way of travelling through the African wilderness.

Think back to the trips taken by the classic explorers over a hundred years ago through Africa, Okavango River Safaris provides similar character and individual attention for adventurous travellers today!

While on your safari you can be guaranteed bush luxury: our camps have a full compliment of staff including a chef, waiters, tent keepers and private guides.

Meals are prepared according to the highest standards and your dietary requirements.

You will always have a selection of soft drinks, fine wines, spirits, and mineral water at hand, and our fridges on board guarantee cold drinks on all the game drives.

On a tented safari , you will enjoy great mobility and adventure through the Okavango Delta. When the camp is to be moved, you will wake in the morning to enjoy a wonderful breakfast.

You will then have a leisurely game drive with a picnic lunch, and then arrive at your new destination, with the camp miraculously resurrected in a new location, with your shower ready and hot, a campfire on the go and your supper being prepared!

To keep your safaris private and personal, we cater for private groups up to twelve people. The luxury is in the adventure and experience.
