Days 2 & 3: Okavango Delta's Moremi Reserve

During the exploration days you will explore the area on game drives. Moremi lies on the eastern extremity of the Okavango Delta. Habitats here range from wide-open floodplains, marshes, lagoons, papyrus fringed channels, vast stands of Miscanthus and Phragmites, woodland and savannah. As a result of the extremely variable habitat the diversity of both wildlife and birdlife is excellent. Moremi is amongst the best game reserves in Africa for viewing the endangered African wild dog. Xakanaxa is home to a resident herd of several hundred buffalo whose range covers the territories of at least 4 prides of lion which may often be seen flanking the ever moving herd. Breeding herds of elephant move between their browsing areas in the mopane forests and the fresh water of the Okavango. Red lechwe are one of the more unusual antelope species and commonly found here. The swampy areas of Xakanaxa are home to African Rail, Coppery-tailed Coucal, Black Coucal*, Red-chested Flufftail, African Crake*, Black Crake, Chirping Cisticola, Luapula Cisticola, Purple Swamphen, Allen’s Gallinule to name but a few. The open waters attract African Skimmer, Saddle-billed Stork, Yellow-billed Stork, Intermediate Egret, Goliath Heron, African Fish Eagle as well as the globally threatened Slaty Egret and Wattled Crane.

Day 4: Moremi to Okavango Delta's Khwai Concession

Today you will move to the Khwai Community Concession on an extended game drive. The game drive will follow the Manuchira Channel towards its eastern extremity Khwai, along the floodplains and through woodlands. You will stop for a picnic lunch along the way. The Khwai region is one of the most scenic in the delta and your journey will take you passed Dombo pools, known for its pod of hippopotamus. On arrival in Khwai you will be accommodated in a Letaka Tented Camp where you will spend three nights. The Khwai Concession provides fantastic game drives, both by day and night, and you will also have the opportunity to explore the area on foot and in the traditional mokoro (canoe). Night game drives with spotlights provide a glimpse into the delta’s nocturnal world.The area is home to excellent populations of elephant, lion, leopard, serval and African wild cat. The area supports seasonal herds of buffalo after the summer rain. (B,L,D)

Day 5 & 6: Okavango Delta's Khwai Concession

During the exploration days you will spend your time between the dry-land habitats of the lead-wood and camel-thorn woodlands and savannas and the riverside and marshy back-waters of the Khwai. Time permiting we may visit the lagoons and waterways of Xakanaxa where the largest heronry in southern Africa exists. The Khwai region boasts excellent populations of both bull elephant as well as breeding herds. Lion, leopard, serval and African wildcat are common predators of the region with wild dog and cheetah being less common. Buffalo use this area seasonally with large herds moving in during the summer rains. The swampy areas in the west are home to red lechwe. Other ungulates include tsesebe, blue wildebeest, giraffe, kudu, sable antelope, roan antelope and impala. Truly one of Botswana birding Mecca’s. The western reaches are prime habitat for the uncommon Rosy-throated Longclaw. The entire length of the river is hunting domain for the Bat-Hawk. Other interesting raptors here are Cuckoo Hawk (rare), Long-crested Eagle and Black Sparrowhawk. More commonly Tawny Eagle, Steppe Eagle, Lesser-spotted Eagle*, Martial Eagle, Bateleur and African Hawk-Eagle. The waterways host Africa Rail, African Crake, Greater Painted Snipe, Allen’s Gallinule*, Lesser Jacana and Lesser Moorhen. (B,L,D)
